Good news for Schapelle Corby as eagle-eyed fans spot a potential engagement ring
Schapelle Corby, who made headlines after being found with 4.1 kilos of marijuana inside her boogie board bag in Bali Airport back in 2004, has sparked rumours that she is engaged to her current partner.
The 42-year-old flashed a diamond ring on her wedding finger while sunbathing at a Gold Coast beach and posted the photos to Instagram.
While Corby didn’t confirm that her boyfriend, Ben Panangian, had proposed, she hinted by tagging him in one of her posts.
One of her followers also noticed the ring and commented 'That's a beautiful ring you're wearing', alongside an engagement ring emoji.
Corby replied: “I think so too.”
Panangian and Corby first met at a church service in Bali’s Kerobokan Prison in 2006 while both serving sentences for drug-related crimes.
They only spend 'two precious weeks a year together' because Panangian is unable to enter Australia due to his criminal record.
Corby is able to return to Indonesia if she chooses but does not feel “Comfortable” doing so as of yet.
Her and her partner meet in countries where visas are not required for entry.
She has previously described Panangian as her “soulmate”.
Scroll through the gallery to see some of the happy moments between the couple.
