According to reports, the 22-year-old footballer popped the question with the £100,000 jewel this weekend.
Belgian model Fanny later confirmed the news by posting a picture of the diamond, alongside the caption: ‘It’s official!’Fans were quick to post their congratulations to the couple both in English and French following Fanny’s post. Mario and Fanny, who started dating six months ago, are now said to be putting plans for the lavish ceremony in action.
The pair had apparently spoken about getting married before, but the timing hadn’t been right.
However, now the pair are planning to take a luxury holiday in the near future to discuss details for their big day.
The engagement comes after the pair split briefly last month following allegations that Mario had made lewd comments about his model girlfriend.
According to reports, the sportsman told his Real Madrid teammates that they could sleep with Fanny if the team beat Borussia Dortmund in the second leg of their Champions League clash. But Fanny was quick to forgive Mario, and the pair were seen enjoying a romantic day out together at an Italian park last week. Mario spoke of his love for Fanny during a magazine interview earlier this year, saying: ‘In a short time she found herself in sync with me. I could spend my whole life with someone like this.’ The footballer had previously been in a relationship with 25-year old presenter Raffaella Fico who claims her four-month old child Pia is his daughter.
Mario reportedly denies the fatherhood claims, and has asked for a paternity test to prove it before he sees the baby.
