Nick Faldo is set to marry ‘former topless dancer’ Lindsay De Marco and become her seventh husband – meaning the couple will have eleven marriages between them when they tie the knot.
The pair announced their engagement on social media, posting a picture showing Lindsay, 57, wearing a glitzy ring and captioning a thread of emojis.
It will be her seventh marriage and make her the golf star’s fourth wife.

Her ex-husband, Randy Heine, said the pair are like ‘golf’s answer to Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor’.
The 68-year-old, who married Lindsay twice, told the Mirror last night: ‘Lindsay has enough husbands for us all to be ushers at the wedding.
‘At the very least we should all be invited to the bachelor party. I could sort the strippers. It’s not like I don’t know a few.’
Heine once claimed Lindsay was a ‘topless dancer’ – backed by a former manager of a bar she used to work at – although she denied this.
She later worked as a manager for one of Mr Heine’s businesses which was raided by drugs officers. He denied any wrongdoing and the charges were dropped.
Ms De Marco was also named Mrs Conservative US in 2012.

Colonel Nicholas De Marco, a ‘career officer’ in the legal wing of the US Air Force is believed to have been her third husband and fourth marriage, with the pair later divorcing.
She married Thomas Bracken before wedding multi-millionaire Scott Sangalli, who is believed to have been close to failed US Presidential candidate Mitt Romney.
Sir Nick, 63, separated from his first wife when she discovered he was having an affair with his manager’s secretary, Gill Bennett.
The golfer would then go on to marry Bennett, before their relationship ended when he had an affair with 20-year-old American golfing student Brenna Cepelak.
That three-year affair ended when he met Valerie Bercher and the spurned Cepelak famously battered Sir Nick’s Porsche with a golf club, reportedly causing damage of £10,000.
