Singer Lorde shared her excitement with fans following the news that her parents got engaged after 30 years together.

The 17-year-old singer took to Twitter to share the news with her fans. 'BEST DAY - went to niagara falls - my dad proposed to my mum after almost 30 years together,' she tweeted.

Her father Vic O'Connor proposed to her mum Sonja Yelich at the iconic Canadian landmark with a diamond ring, following Lorde's performance at the MuchMusic Video Awards, where the quirky performer also took home the award for International Video of the Year.

'Inevitable response, yes I know I have seen a diamond now,' quipped the singer, referring to her hit song Royals in which the opening lyric is 'I've never seen a diamond in the flesh'.
