Rory McIlroy has scored a new fiancee after popping the question to his beautiful girlfriend Erica Stoll.

A source close to Rory (26) confirmed he got down on bended knee during a trip to Paris and popped the question to the blonde bombshell (27).

This week saw the Holywood native - worth more than €400m - post a picture of the Eiffel Tower, with speculation the famous landmark formed the venue for the unexpected proposal. "Bonjour! #jesuisparis," he wrote.

The world number three golfer has made no secret of the fact that he's head over heels about the beautiful Florida native, whom he has been dating for nearly a year.

He was obviously keen to seal the deal after presenting the PGA employee with a sizeable sparkler. A spokesperson for the golfer declined to comment on the report.

"We don't comment on speculation about our client's personal life," she said.

Engaged

However, an inside source has said McIlroy has popped the question and the happy couple are over the moon.

He was previously engaged to Denmark's Caroline Wozniacki but he called it quits in May 2014, a few months before their New York wedding.

McIlroy then vowed to concentrate on his golfing instead of his romantic life and went on to win a string of major championship titles.

He was first spotted with Stoll nearly a year ago, with the pair ringing in the New Year in style at Ashford Castle last year as they continued their romance.
