There’s only one thing that ruins a potential engagement more than sending your partner a screenshot of Tiffany engagement rings with the comment, “Which one do you like? LOL”.
It’s having your ‘surprise engagement news’ printed in the pages of one of Australia’s leading gossip magazines.
The Block winner and model Elyse Knowles, 24, found out the hard way when she opened the most recent issue of New Idea to discover that she and her boyfriend, Josh Barker, were set to announce their engagement “by the end of the year”.
"We wouldn't be surprised if there's an announcement in the next few weeks," a 'source close to the couple' told New Idea.
"I know Josh has been talking a lot about popping the question and making it all official.
"He loves Elyse to bits and knows she's The One - it's just a matter of taking the next very big step. And it sounds like they're finally ready to do it."

There's only one problem with the happy news: it's completely, utterly false and the 25-year-old wasn't afraid to let her 862,000 Instagram followers know it.
