"Magic night": Jamie Durie dishes on engagement
Australian media personality Jamie Durie has shared about his recent engagement to singer/songwriter Ameka Jane on Valentine's Day.
He joked he had to "lure" his partner out of the house so he could surprise her with the engagement.
“I said, ‘darling, a mate of mine and his partner want to do a double date for Valentine’s Day, do you want to join us?’” he explained to The Morning Show.
“She got dressed up and off we go.”
Ameka was whisked off to a stunning waterside location where Durie had spelled out "marry me" in roses and Australian native flowers.
“It was really good,” he said.
The happy couple announced the news on Instagram, with Durie saying it was a "magic night for a magic girl".View this post on Instagram
“She said YES ❤️! Thrilled to announce our engagement. Thank you to my beautiful @amekajane for turning my life upside down. I couldn’t be happier 🥰,” he wrote.
The engagement ring is custom-made for his bride-to-be which features argyle champagne diamonds and green Asscher cut sapphires.
Durie explained he chose the champagne diamonds because "they're the brown diamonds where I grew up in northwestern Australia" and green sapphires because his future wife has "got beautiful green eyes".
