GB Olympic athlete Greg Rutherford, 32, and blogger Susie Verrill, 30, announced their engagement Friday while in the US. After popping the question while hiking Mount Camelback in Arizona the gold medallist posted, “Came to Phoenix, got myself a fiancé. @susiejverrill said YES!” on Instagram.
Verrill posted the same photo on her account saying "Finger down, best hike I’ve ever been on."
On Twitter the bride-to-be joked about the moments leading up to the proposal saying she had been annoyed with Rutherford. "Wondered why @GregJRutherford was being so particular about finding 'beautiful views', finally found out why."
The couple have been dating since 2012 and have two children together, 4-year-old Milo and toddler Rex. Rutherford, the Olympic long jumper, and his family have been travelling together in Arizona.
