Rugby star Chris Ashton has become engaged, sharing his joy just days after his close pal Mike Tindall and wife Zara Phillips became parents for the first time.
Ashton, a fellow England player, popped the question to nanny Melissa Uzelac as they enjoyed a break in New York.
But the sportsman told Hello! magazine that the proposal took a toll on his joints, saying: "My knee was sore from bending down - I must be getting old."
He said he had long been planning the proposal to his girlfriend of six-and-a-half years, during the holiday.

In a statement before the match, William - who will present the Prince William Cup following the match - described the Welsh side as "special".
"It has been an amazing year for Welsh rugby with our triumph at the Six Nations and the Welsh contribution to the British and Irish Lions' historic success in Australia."

A minute's silence was held at Saturday's afternoon's England and Fiji World Cup match and another tribute will take place at Ireland's match against Australia this evening.
Prescott represented both nations - in Hull and Limerick.
RFL chief executive Nigel Wood said: "It is with deep sadness that we have learned of the death of Steve Prescott. Our thoughts are with his family at this terribly sad time.
"The word 'hero' is over-used in sport but Steve was just that: a role model for every young rugby league player during his distinguished playing career and an absolute inspiration to all of us off the field".
