Johanna Konta shared engagement news on her Instagram today and showed us her new ring. The big event in the British tennis star’s love life happened a month ago, as her long-time boyfriend Jackson Wade popped the question during her 30th birthday party on May 17 in London.
The British WTA world No.30 wasn’t shocked when her partner asked her to marry him:
It was a semi-surprise. I wouldn’t say I was completely shocked. I kind of expected it once the present came into my hand, I was like, ‘OK, I think this could be a ring’. It was all done with lots of love and it’s something that I’ll always think back on. It was really lovely.
Over the weekend, Konta clinched her fourth WTA title at the 2021 Viking Open, becoming the first British woman to win a tournament on home soil since Sue Barker at Brighton 1981.
