Some may have looked on the announcement last week as joyous, while for others (single women, WAG wannabe’s) it was the most devastating news!
The NZ Herald reported: Former All Blacks skipper Richie McCaw has announced his engagement to long-time girlfriend Gemma Flynn.
Breaking the news on his Facebook page tonight, McCaw revealed he had spent the new year celebrating his engagement to the Black Stick.
“Happy new year to everyone. I’ve had a fantastic start to 2016 and feel very lucky. Gemma said ‘yes’! It’s been great celebrating our engagement with friends and family in sunny central Otago. Here’s to a great year ahead.”
The post was accompanied by two photographs. One shows the Rugby World Cup-winning captain and Flynn together with an arm around each other and glasses of champagne in hand – and a big sparkler shining on the 25-year-old hockey player’s wedding finger.
Congratulations Ritchie and Gemma! If you need a Celebrant…
