Sophie Monk Is Engaged, Casts Off 'Bachelorette' Label For Good

Sophie Monk met her now-fiancé Joshua Gross on a plane.

Sophie Monk is getting hitched!

The former Bachelorette star is engaged to her boyfriend of two years, Joshua Gross, after he popped the question a few days ago, while on a trip to Sydney, reports Woman's Day.

Apparently the engagement ring – a team effort by Josh and Sophie's favourite jeweller Luke Rose – is an oval solitaire with a hidden halo and is worth a reported $25,000 (I would just take the cash, but each to their own).

The couple met on a flight in 2018 and celebrated their second anniversary a few months ago.

Rumour had it (and by "rumour" we mean a source telling Woman's Day) Sophie blocked her mum and sister on social media after they initially "expressed concern" over her whirlwind romance.

"Josh wasn't immediately accepted in the family and they had some hesitation, but the family have finally come on board," the source continues. Ah yes, what's a wedding without some familial resistance! We love a modern-day Jane Austen situation.

Congrats to all involved!
