If you follow either Oliver Proudlock or his new fiancée Emma Louise Connolly on Instagram you’ll no doubt have got a little bit teary-eyed when he popped the question over the weekend. To celebrate their four-year anniversary, 29-year-old Proudlock surprised his then-girlfriend by popping the question - and they took to Instagram to share the happy news.

Taken by surprise, model and influencer Emma couldn’t stop gushing about her husband-to-be, and was in love with the ring he designed for her. Yes, that’s right, Proudlock helped design the ring and used a diamond from his grandmother’s ring. Teaming up with Vow Jewellery, the former Made in Chelsea star worked on the bespoke engagement ring, making sure the white and black diamond art deco ring was perfect for his bride-to-be.
