Dancing On Ice’s Kevin Kilbane Is Engaged To His Skating Partner After Months Of Dating
Why wait when it's true love, eh?
Former Ireland footballer Kevin Kilbane has announced his engagement to his Dancing On Ice skating partner Brianne Delcourt.
The couple met when rehearsals began before Christmas – and although they were eliminated from the show at the weekend, you could say they’ve won when it comes to love.
Kevin and Brianne first revealed they were dating in early January, and moved in together at the start of this month.
Last night, while out for dinner, Kevin decided to pop the big question, and the proposal was caught on camera by their fellow diners:
“He was worth the wait,” Brianne wrote on Instagram. “Kev, you’ve made me the happiest girl in the world. You’re my fairytale ending.”
Speaking to Dermot and Dave on Today FM earlier this week, Kevin said that Brianne actually turned him down the first time he asked her out.
“It was me, I made the first move, and I got a custard pie to start with. I asked her out and she said no and then it just happened,” he laughed.
I genuinely do feel blessed because we were both single going into it and that was the beauty of it all… It just happened, it was just natural. It’s not been anything forced, we’ve fallen in love and that’s it.
Brianne previously told OK Magazine that she and Kevin initially bonded over missing their children back at home – the ex-footballer has two teenage daughters from his first marriage, while Brianne is the mother of a little girl. Congrats, you two!
