‘Told you I’d tell you guys first. I’m engaged,’ she gushed in an accompanying caption.
‘I honestly can’t thank you enough for all the love and support. I know I have the coolest people following me and you’ve always had my back and I feel so cared about.
‘You’re absolute bloody legends. I’m not very good at being mushy. I’m trying to say I absolutely adore you. @joshuargross and I are so happy.’
She added: ‘Josh designed a very personal ring with my favourite Aussie designer @luke_rose_jewellery and I LOVE IT.’

Sophie proudly flashed the diamond sparkler on her left hand wedding finger as she tenderly cupped Joshua’s face.
She looked radiant in a white dress and barely any makeup on her youthful visage.
Joshua also shared the same image on his own Instagram page, along with the caption: ‘Luckiest guy in the world’.
Last month, Sophie spectacularly shut down rumours she was engaged to Joshua, following claims by Woman’s Day that they were secretly betrothed.
‘Promise I’m not engaged… as if I wouldn’t tell you guys straight away,’ she wrote on Instagram, before adding, ‘Hand on heart… I’m not.’
Back in July 2019, Sophie admitted she was hoping Joshua would propose, sharing a telling message on Instagram on their two-year anniversary.
‘Happy anniversary @joshuargross, I can’t believe you’ve put up with me for two years,’ she wrote.

‘I love you so much and you’re my best friend in the world… I can’t wait to marry you (hint hint).’
Speaking about marriage in an interview with The Daily Telegraph in September last year, Sophie confessed: ‘I am pushing every day.’
But the singer-turned-TV and radio presenter confessed she draws the line at popping the question herself.

‘I know nowadays it is okay but something in me I don’t know… I just want it that way,’ she said of having Joshua be the one to propose to her.
