"I've gotten used to it already - it's been really nice." She added: "The proposal was kind of a surprise but at the same time it wasn't."

Asked how she celebrated the news, Johanna revealed: "To be honest, we didn't really keep this a secret by any means. It's so interesting as it's not until you put it on social media that it becomes well-known. It's so funny. Celebrations-wise, we haven't done anything massive really. We've just stayed us."
