Congratulations are in order for Iggy Azalea! The Australian rapper has got engaged to her basketball player boyfriend Nick Young, and announced the happy news on Instagram. Sharing a close-up photo of her ten-carat, yellow diamond ring, Iggy wrote: "Happiest Day #Isaidyes."

The 24-year-old, who has been in a relationship with Nick for a year and a half, then shared two romantic snaps of herself and her future husband.

"Love you @swaggyp1," Iggy captioned one photo of the couple kissing, while also flaunting her new accessory in the corner of the snap. A second selfie showed the lovebirds beaming at the camera, with Nick, 30, looking particularly thrilled that his sweetheart had said "yes".

The Los Angeles Lakers star surprised his girlfriend with a proposal at his 30th birthday party over the weekend. Nick opted to take the traditional route and got down on bended knee, popping the question in front of his friends and family.

A partygoer Karen Civil captured the moment on camera and posted a short video on Twitter that showed Nick, who goes by the name Swaggy P, asking "Would you marry me?" to which a shocked Iggy replies "Yes".

Luxury jewellers Jason of Beverly Hills were the creators behind Iggy's mammoth diamond ring, and congratulated the happy couple on Instagram.

"Thank u for trusting us with your big moment," they wrote alongside a photo of Nick down on one knee during the proposal. The jewellery house also shared a close-up image of the ten-carat ring, which looked to be a cushion-cut central stone flanked by another band of glittering diamonds.
