Meanwhile, Dana shared a post on her Instagram announcing the news and revealing that Lachlan had actually proposed a month earlier. 

‘At the end of our summer holidays, I walked into the most beautiful surprise – a room filled with the most incredible flowers and Lachy singing at his piano and then asking me to marry him. It was such a surprise and so special. Our faces say it all,’ she wrote next to a selfie of the couple. 

‘It was something very meaningful for us to both have the opportunity to propose to one another, each in our own way,’ she continued.
