Newly engaged Mairead Farrell is keeping her ring a secret for now.

The Today FM presenter, who announced her engagement yesterday, was determined to keep her diamond rock under wraps from waiting paparazzi outside the station offices as she exited the building yesterday.

The radio star, who will also be leaving her long-standing role on The Ray D'Arcy Show as a producer on the Ian Dempsey Breakfast Show, said her fiancee, boyfriend of three years Louis Ronan, prefers to keep their relationship out of the public eye.

Mairead might have avoided the cameras, but one accessory that caught our attention was her oversized Louis Vuitton tote.

Louis proposed to his long-term girlfriend during a romantic holiday two weeks ago and was also given the thumbs up by Mairead's son Dara (eight).

"Louis asked me to marry him almost two weeks ago on holidays," she explained. "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."
