Megan Gale has some very, very exciting news.

On Thursday evening, model Megan Gale shared some very exciting news.

After a five year relationship, the 41-year-old is engaged to her partner, Shaun Hampson.

In her characteristically funny way, Gale posted a photo of the ring with a seemingly misleading caption.

“For goodness sake, can’t a girl go for leisurely beach stroll without chipping a nail?!” she wrote.

(At this point, I have to admit, I was genuinely focusing on the nail).

“Well.. at least I had some nice rocks to look at. I know you’re not supposed to remove shells and rocks from the beach and take them home with you, but I did find one rock that was pretty special and I just had to keep it.”

OH. ROCK. I GET IT. THE RING.

In a later post, the bride-to-be revealed that Hampson had designed the ring himself and managed to pull off “the sweetest” proposal she could have imagined.

“Both of my boys completely surprised me and made my heart melt (I may have cried a little bit!). The big fella even managed to effortlessly get down on one knee – not easy for a ruckman that’s had five knee operations! He must REALLY love me!” Gale wrote.

For Hampson she added, “Honestly, just the proposal itself was the biggest and most important gesture you could’ve ever made and to involve our son was the most special part of all. And our little bump was there too, which just made it all perfect. I am one lucky, lucky lady.

“Oh and PS for those of you concerned about the nail, it has since been buffed, filed and polished – PHEW.”

On behalf of Shaun and myself thanks to everyone for all of your lovely messages. Needless to say we’re thrilled ???? This photo was taken moments after the sweetest proposal I could’ve ever hoped for. Both of my boys completely surprised me and made my heart melt (I may have cried a little bit!). The big fella even managed to effortlessly get down on one knee – not easy for a ruckman that’s had five knee operations! He must REALLY love me! ???? But seriously, to my man, the amount of time, effort and energy you put into designing a ring for me was just beautiful. Honestly, just the proposal itself was the biggest and most important gesture you could’ve ever made and to involve our son was the most special part of all. And our little bump was there too which just made it all perfect ☺️ I am one lucky, lucky lady ❤️???? Oh and PS for those of you concerned about the nail, it has since been buffed, filed & polished – PHEW ????????

Gale is currently pregnant with her second child with 29-year-old Hampson, who plays professional AFL for Richmond. In announcing the pregnancy, Gale again drew on a joke that might have thrown her less attentive fans off.

“Well would you look at that. There’s a bun in my oven. Not quite ready to take it out just yet. Should be fully baked come Spring time,” she wrote.

The couple are already parents to two-year-old son River.
