Rangers striker Jermain Defoe has popped the question to a Scots beauty therapist with an eye-watering sparkler.
The 38-year-old got down on one knee to propose to skincare boss Donna Tierney, 39, with a huge diamond ring believed to be worth tens of thousands of pounds.
Mum Donna gave her pals a glimpse of the lavish square-cut gem with diamond-encrusted band in a clip on her Instagram story on Wednesday, which revealed a romantic backdrop scattered with rose petals and lights.
Her most recent post shows an image of her tagged at Rangers FC, when the team were playing Malmo on August 10, which she captioned “J #ForeverEver” with a love heart emoji.
Defoe, who has more than half a million followers, responded to the pic with an emoji of a diamond ring.
And in July, Donna hinted at the relationship with the former England ace when she posted an image of her looking out onto the Ibrox pitch on the day of the team’s friendly against Brighton.
The businesswoman and fitness enthusiast, who runs a skincare firm in Glasgow city centre, captioned the picture “I’ve got my eyes on you” with a love heart.
Earlier that month, the striker gushed about his fiancé on an image of her blowing up balloons, writing “Mrs D” with flame emojis.
Defoe has spent most of his career in the English Premier League playing for Spurs and West Ham.
He also has 57 caps for England and scored 20 for the Three Lions.
A source said: “Donna was so thrilled at the effort Jermain went to. It was so romantic.
“Signing for Rangers has turned out to be the best decision he’s ever made.
“He not only won the league title but found the woman of his dreams. They’re both beyond happy.”
Defoe moved to Rangers in 2018 but has been restricted to a bit-part player over the past season due to the form of Alfredo Morelos and Kemar Roofe.
The forward recently signed a new contract for the club and took on a player/coach role meaning he is now a member of Steven Gerrard’ s backroom staff.
He got his first-ever league winners medal when the Light Blues won the Scottish Premiership.
However he’s only made one substitute appearance in the league this season.
The star’s tumultuous love life has been well documented over the years with a series of flings with glamour models and Reality TV stars, along with a broken engagement.
The footballer was reported to have broken off his engagement to retail manager Charlotte Mears in 2007 before starting a relationship with her friend, ex-Miss Great Britain Danielle Lloyd, but their relationship fizzled out after a couple of months.
He dated Celebrity Big Brother winner Chantelle Houghton for five months in 2009, and then Welsh model Imogen Thomas.
He was also spotted on dates with X Factor winner Alexandra Burke in 2012, before they split.
But the footballer is also know for his dedication to charity work and was given an OBE in the 2018 Birthday Honours list for his work with the Jermain Defoe Foundation.
We tried to contact Defoe and his wife-to-be but they did not respond to our request for comment.
