‘Future Mrs Brady’: Football star Robbie Brady and girlfriend Kerrie Harris announce engagement
The moment footballer Robbie Brady plucked his girlfriend Kerrie out of the crowd following Ireland’s win against Italy was one of the most memorable moments of Euro 2016 and putting the cherry on top of a magical year, the couple have announced they are to wed.
Loved-up Kerrie Harris (24) took to Instagram to announce her engagement, sharing an image of the pair with their two-year-old daughter Halle.
“That’s Halloween sorted so. Feyonce it is, he put a ring on it,” she wrote, sharing her delight.
Dance-school owner Kerrie and Norwich City star Robbie have been together since they were 16.
Speaking to The Sunday Independent earlier this year, Harris opened up about her relationship and admitted that Robbie isn’t a typical footballer, but a committed family man.
"He is very loyal. He makes me feel very secure, and obviously I do trust him. He's a one-woman man. Well maybe two, now, with Halle.
"I think it helps that we surround ourselves with our friends and family when we go out. There will always be a certain type of person that will try to grab his attention, but he handles it really well.
"If girls hover around a little bit, Robbie doesn't pay much heed, so they get tired. He is a really good lad, with a massive heart, and he would do anything for myself and Halle. He is a real family man, and the three of us have our own thing going on."
Kerrie has previously spoken about marriage and admitted last summer that it was a commitment the pair were both eager to make in the near future.
"I'd like to think we would do it in the next two years, but we only have a small window to do it in the summer because of the way the season schedule plays out," Kerrie said.
"But yes, we definitely do talk about it, and we are big believers in marriage, so you'll just have to ask him that question.
"When it comes to treating me, he is very good, in fairness. He has great taste," she laughs.
"I trust him when it comes to that, too. You should see the heels and handbags he picks out for me . . . and, you know, if he wants to spoil me, I'm OK with that," she said.
