It's been a long time coming – nine years to be precise – but Andy Murray and Kim Sears are finally engaged. At least that's the rumour doing the rounds this morning. The former Wimbledon champion and ELLE Man of the Week proposed to Kim in Paris last Wednesday with a ring that he chose himself. Very well played. According to sources, the pair had wanted to keep the engagement under wraps, but it looks like that plan has been well and truly scuppered.

Andy teased fans about the pair's planned wedding earlier this year by telling them during a Twitter Q&A: "We're getting married just after Wimbledon, should be a great day."
He was then forced to reveal that the comment was a joke, writing: “3 things.. I don't smoke grass, I'm not getting married(yet) and I don't want to kill rafael Nadal.. [sic].” Bet Kim was thrilled.
Thankfully, this time he's serious. Details about the wedding are yet to be revealed, but given Kim's super-classic style we're guessing that she'll skip the jumpsuit and bicycle on the big day.
