Lorde gushes over parents proposal

Lorde has finally seen a diamond in the flesh as her dad proposed to her mum after nearly 30 years together.

Vic O'Connor popped the question to Sonja Yelich during a trip to Niagara Falls.

The Kiwi music star was clearly overjoyed as she announced her parents' engagement on Twitter yesterday.

"Best day - went to Niagara Falls - my dad proposed to my mum after almost 30 years together." The post was followed by 12 emoticons with love hearts, smiley faces, rainbows and roses.

And, poking fun at the opening line of her Royals hit, in which the teenager sings "I've never seen a diamond in the flesh", Lorde tweeted "inevitable response yes I know I have seen a diamond now".

Lorde recently admitted she was the quietest member of her "insane" family.

"We're one of the louder, more insane families. We're all super creative and impulsive," she said. "It's been a good environment to learn how to speak your mind, you know? And be feisty. And unapologetic.

"But weirdly, I'm the quietest member of my family. It took me a while to be able to find a voice in terms of being able to talk to people."
