Today FM presenter Mairead Farrell is engaged to her businessman boyfriend Louis Ronan.
It's a big day for Mairead as she also announced she'll be moving from her on-air role with The Ray D'Arcy Show to a Producer on The Ian Dempsey Show.
She and Louis, who are fiercely private when it comes to their relationship, are celebrating the beginning of their future together.
Mairead previously expressed her desire to give her six-year-old son Dara, from her previous marriage, some little brother and sisters.
"I'm engaged," she told the Ray D'Arcy Show this morning. "Louis asked me to marry him almost two weeks ago on holidays. I would have blabbed to the world - but Louis is the sensible one!
"He said let's just tell our families and put the phones away."
The couple were joined by Mairead's son for the romantic gesture, who will be fulfilling a very important role on their big day - double best man for both the bride and groom.
"Dara was with us as well, which was fantastic," she added.
"He is best man for both of us. His first question was ,'How much do you get paid to be best man?'
Louis and Mairead have been dating since 2011.
