Irish rugby star Cian Healy is officially off the market.

The Leinster and Ireland player (30) popped the question to long-term girlfriend Laura Smith. The couple had been together since their school days before splitting in 2012 when Laura moved to New York to pursue a career in advertising; but when she returned to our shores in 2015 and both were single, they reunited.

The couple have been sharing the news with friends and family in recent days.

He's in good company with wedding planning among the Ireland squad with teammate Jack McGrath engaged to radiographer Sinead Corcoran and he can take plenty of advice from newlyweds Fergus McFadden, Iain Henderson and Jamie Heaslip.

Healy previously dated former Miss Ireland Holly Carpenter for two years before parting ways in 2014.

At the time of Laura and Cian's reconciliation in 2015, a source said: "She’s a really nice girl - she’s very down to earth and very  career driven. She did really well for herself in New York and she’s been there for Cian since she got back."
