Engaged Ant McPartlin beams with happiness in first sighting after proposal news

TV legend Ant McPartlin was beaming with happiness as he played golf following the announcement he is newly engaged to partner Anne-Marie Corbett.

The presenter was flashing smiles while out on the green with a golfer and one of Anne-Marie's daughters.

The 45-year-old wore a pair of blue trackies and a blue fleece.

He completed the look with a striped bobble hat to keep him warm while he played the sport.

He looked pleased during the game and at one point even gave out a high five.

The star has more than his golfing skills to be joyful after he got down on one knee at their London home and asked his girlfriend of almost three years, Anne-Marie, to marry him.

The happy couple told family and friends, including Ant's best pal Declan Donnelly, about their news.

It's believed he proposed with a ring he designed himself.

A friend told The Sun: "Ant has been planning this for some time – but wanted to make sure the moment was just right.

"2020 has been a pretty torrid year for everybody, and this is the happy news that all their friends and family have been waiting for.

"Both Amzie and Ant adore Christmas, and get really into it every year, so Ant decided to pop the question on Christmas Eve. 

"He's a traditionalist, so got down on one knee after first checking with Anne Marie's family that he had their blessing. It was super-romantic, and obviously Anne-Marie said 'yes' straight away."

His co-star, which make the TV dynamic duo Ant and Dec, and Dec's wife Ali are understood to be 'thrilled' for the couple.

The 45-year-old is expected to act as Best Man when they wed, but it's not been confirmed.

A spokesman confirmed the engagement, adding: "Ant and Amzie are delighted to announce their engagement. The proposal took place on Christmas Eve at home in a very romantic setting."
