Joanna Cooper and Conor Murray are engaged

Congrats to this pair.

A huge congratulations are in order for Irish rugby player Conor Murray and model girlfriend Joanna Cooper after he decided to pop the big question.

Clearly, on a high from his Triple Crown win at the Six Nations, Conor got down on one knee during a romantic holiday in Dubai, and Joanna followed up with a massive yes.

Sharing the snap on Instagram, Joanna posted a picture of her engagement ring and Conor smiling in the background, writing: “Always & Forever.”

Also sharing a photo from the memorable moment, Conor posted a photo of the pair of them, writing: “Phew.”

It wasn’t long before his Munster and Irish rugby teammate’s began commenting on the post, with Cian Healy saying: “Congrats guys.”

Sean O’Brien commented: “Congratulations.”

The pair have been together since 2018, after first meeting on a night out in London in 2017, according to RSVP, with Joanna claiming that the pair didn’t hit it off right away.

Eventually winning each other over, the two endured a long distance relationship as Conor had rugby commitments in Ireland and Joanna remained in London as a model.

The two ended up moving in together when the Covid 19 pandemic hit, which was slightly sooner than they had planned, taking the opportunity by storm.

Conor previously told Ray D’Arcy on RTE Radio 1: ” Joanna moved in fully at the start of lockdown which has been brilliant.

“Thankfully we were planning it anyway, Joanna was due to move in at the end of the Six Nations back in March, it was happening anyway.”
