WA sports stars Mitch Brown and Shae Bolton have announced their engagement after the West Coast Eagles player proposed to his netballer girlfriend in New York.

Brown and West Coast Fever shooter Bolton, both 23, have been dating for several years after meeting at an Innaloo pub.

Bolton posted a picture of the couple – and her engagement ring – on Twitter this morning with the caption: “This was the happiest moment of my life… I love you @mitchbrownie.”

Minutes later she wrote: “Thank you for everyone’s beautiful messages. I cannot stop smiling! X’

The couple are holidaying in New York.

Brown, who has one year left on his contract with the Eagles, recently declared he wanted to return home to Melbourne but West Coast is refusing to trade the defender to St Kilda.
