AH bless. We all love a happy ending. After months of frenzied speculation as to whether it was "on" or "off", ace golfer Rory McIlroy and his stunning Danish tennis pro girlfriend Caroline Wozniacki teed up 2014 by getting engaged in Australia.
But this was not news the golden couple saved exclusively for family and friends. They served it up to millions and millions of people all over the world on Twitter, along with pictures of a humdinger of a diamond ring on Caroline's perfectly manicured hand and the happy couple beaming in Sydney Harbour.
Caroline tweeted to her 576,000 followers: "Happy New Year everyone! Rory and I started 2014 with a bang! ... I said YES!!!!" And an hour later Rory followed by tweeting Happy New Year to his 1.8 million twitter fans adding: "I have a feeling it's going to be a great year!! My first victory of 2014 #shesaidyes!!"
