rory mcilroy and caroline wozniacki--The New Year started off with a bang for Caroline Wozniacki and Rory McIlroy, who popped the question in Sydney, Australia, where Wozniacki is preparing to play the Sydney International. Having secured a yes from Wozniacki, McIlroy announced the engagement on Twitter: “Happy New Year everyone! I have a feeling it’s going to be a great year!! My first victory of 2014 #shesaidyes!!”

Happy New Year everyone! Rory and I started 2014 with a bang! … I said YES!!!!

The high-profile pair have been dating since the summer of 2011 and spent most of 2013 denying both break-up and engagement rumors in equal measure. This should silence them once and for all.

Here are some of our favorite moments of the very public “Wozzilroy” courtship:

The time Mardy Fish played detective: When rumors began swirling in 2011 that the two were dating, Fish tried to get to the bottom of things on Twitter:

@CaroWozniacki Do you have a BF? Can you confirm all these reports pleaaaaase??? :)—

The time they made out in front of the Yale football team: After officially confirming the relationship in August 2011, they effectively went “Facebook official” with this kiss at The 2011 New Haven Open, where the Yale Football team served as witnesses. Wozniacki went on to win the tournament. (Photo via @newhavenopen)
