Rory McIlroy proposed to his girlfriend Caroline Wozniacki on New Year’s Eve, but not before asking her parents for permission first. According to Matt Cronin of Tennis.com, Wozniacki told reporters that her new fiancé stuck to tradition before popping the question.
“My parents knew. He had asked my parents for permission, like traditional, which was great,” she said in Sydney. “I was very happy. They were very happy for me, and his parents as well and everyone around us.”
Isn’t that great? Everybody was happy. Let’s have a group hug.
Eluding to the notion that a change of this magnitude in their personal lives may negatively impact their respective performance in their sport, Wozniacki suggested quite the opposite.
“So it's a special moment, a special time in our lives. You know, it's amazing to have everything set in the personal life and we can really focus on our games and the year ahead of us in the sport, which we're both looking very much forward to.”
