Heavily pregnant model Elyse Knowles surprised fans on Sunday when she revealed she’d been secretly engaged to her longtime partner, Josh Barker, for weeks.

And now the cat’s out the bag, the 28-year-old proudly flaunted her engagement ring in a sponsored Instagram post for swimwear label Seafolly on Wednesday.

While modelling a Seafolly bikini in one photo, the glamorous blonde smiled at the beach as she held out her hand to reveal the stunning sparkler.

She followed this with more photos of herself frolicking on the sand as she showed off her bump in a skimpy white two-piece.

‘Love surprises you when you least expect it,’ the newly engaged Block winner wrote in the caption.

‘It’s these moments that make your heart sing and smile never disappear,’ she added, tagging the swimwear brand and using the hashtag #TheLoveSeries.

Her clichéd sponsored post is part of Seafolly’s Spread The Love campaign in the lead-up to Valentine’s Day.

On Sunday, Elyse revealed she’d been been engaged to Josh for several weeks.

She shared a photo to Instagram showing the diamond ring on her hand, which rested on top of Josh’s as they both cradled her stomach.

Interestingly, the mother-to-be had told Stellar Magazine a week earlier that marriage wasn’t on her list of priorities.

‘I’m not really fussed about [a wedding]. The baby is the biggest commitment we need,’ she said.

‘We don’t even think about that anymore. I’m not worried about it. I would rather put that money into family and our life all together. We know we love each other.’

The couple, who have been together for eight years, announced in September they were expecting their first child together.
