'It hasn't hit me yet', says rugby star Tommy Bowe on marrying Lucy Whitehouse this summer
He's been keeping tight-lipped about his upcoming nuptials until now, but rugby star Tommy Bowe has revealed it hasn't "hit him" that he's getting married.
The Ireland player is due to wed his Welsh fiance Lucy Whitehouse in a low-key ceremony this year.
While the private pair have managed to keep the details of the wedding under wraps, Tommy did admit that he will be saying 'I do' to his former Miss Wales fiancee very soon.
"It's all happening soon enough," he told the Herald.
"I don't think it's really hit either of us yet because it's happening so quickly."
The Ulster player, who has been dating the beauty queen-turned-nurse since 2011, admitted that he's excited to tie the knot.
Speaking at the IRUPA Awards earlier this week, Tommy also revealed he has been hands on when it comes to planning the wedding.
However, the Monaghan man is taking a back seat compared to his other half.
"It's very exciting," he said. "I've done more than I thought I would be doing, but I think Lucy thinks I could do 100pc more."
