Candice Falzon has firmly cemented her status as a WAG to watch after announcing her pregnancy and subsequent engagement to cricketer David Warner yesterday.

The couple, who have only been dating for 10 months, spoke in this week's New Idea of their joy at discovering they were expecting their first child, which they revealed was conceived during Australia's recent winning Ashes turn.

The ironwoman and model first contacted the batsman over Twitter in May last year, sending her support to Warner after reports emerged of an incident with an English cricketer during the 2013 Ashes. The romance quickly progressed through to texts and Skype calls, with Falzon admitting their courtship may appear rushed to some.

"It might seem like a little bit of a whirlwind for everyone else but for us it's just been the most perfect timing," she told the magazine's latest issue.

"Everyone says that when you've found "the one" you just know, and that's exactly how I feel. I can't wait to become David's wife and have a beautiful family together."

Warner, 27, revealed the couple began trying for a baby over the summer during the Ashes but did not expect Falzon, 28, to fall pregnant so quickly.

The blonde, who is due to give birth in September, added the other cricket WAGs say one woman falls pregnant every tour.

"We are keeping that tradition alive at the moment," Falzon said. Warner later proposed to his lady love with a large emerald-cut diamond ring while on the team's recent tour of South Africa, getting down on one knee the day after Falzon's 12-week scan.
