Another Leinster wedding on cards as Gordon pops question to Aoife

LEINSTER star Gordon D'Arcy and model girlfriend Aoife Cogan could be the next celebrity couple to walk down the aisle.

It is believed that the hunky rugby player has popped the question to the former Miss Ireland, who was only too happy to accept.

Loved-up Gordon (31) and Aoife (27) have been dating for the past 18 months, with Aoife by Gordon's side for the wedding of his team-mate Brian O'Driscoll to his wife Amy Huberman last summer.

Just last month, Assets model Aoife accompanied Amy and the other Leinster WAGs to Cardiff where they watched their men clinch the Heineken Cup.

Aoife and Gordon started dating early last year, and did their utmost to keep their blossoming romance under the radar before going public.

Their engagement was confirmed yesterday by Aoife's modelling agency.

"Congratulations!! Aoife Cogan and Gordon D'Arcy on their engagement," they wrote on their Facebook page.

Although the couple are extremely private about their personal life, many who know them well won't be surprised by their latest move.

Even though they have refused to answer questions about their relationship, the couple appear relaxed and happy with each other when appearing at public events

A source close to the engaged duo previously told the Herald that they are a match made in heaven.

"They have loads in common as they both love travelling to long-haul places and Aoife used to be very into sports when she was at school and has competed in loads of mini-marathons and likes to keep fit," the source said.

This will be the third Leinster wedding in two years. Brian O'Driscoll wed actress Amy Huberman in a star-studded bash at Mohill, Co Leitrim, while Leinster captain Leo Cullen married long-term love Dairine Kennedy during a ceremony in St Brigid's Church near Ferns, Co Wexford last month.

Aoife will surely be on style watch now as Irish designers pour in offers to make her dress. An official announcement from the couple is expected later this week.
