Bachelor In Paradise star Michelle Money got engaged to her long-time boyfriend and pro golfer Mike Weir while on a vacation in New Zealand.
In an Instagram post from last week when she announced their engagement, the 42-year-old beamed while she got a kiss from 52-year-old Weir. She captioned the picture with “Mike and I are getting married!” and added a ring and a heart emoji next to it.
She also wrote, “After dating for almost 7 years- we both want to take that next step and tie the knot!” Then she went on to say that “Looking forward to being Mrs. Michelle Weir! I love you baby! You make my dreams come true! Me and you forever!”
Later on, she revealed that the lovebirds got engaged back when they were in New Zealand, it appeared like Weir played a round of golf there.
Weir and Money stood on a wooden deck and posed for pictures with bright smiles on their faces. It was the perfect romantic setting as it overlooked a large body of water with beautiful mountains and sunshine in the background.
Weir also shared the same pictures on his Instagram and simply captioned it “I am a lucky man” with a heart emoji next to it.
It was not clear whether Weir proposed at the beautiful setting where the pictures were taken but the two seemed to be celebrating something!
