Caroline Wozniacki, who is engaged to Rory McIlroy, says the golfer asked her parents for permission before proposing to her on New Year's Eve.

“My parents knew. He had asked my parents for permission, like traditional, which was great,” she said in Sydney. “I was very happy. They were very happy for me, and his parents as well and everyone around us.

“So it's a special moment, a special time in our lives. You know, it's amazing to have everything set in the personal life and we can really focus on our games and the year ahead of us in the sport, which we're both looking very much forward to.”
