Graeme Smith, who did not return to South Africa after the Proteas’s quarter final exit to New Zealand, got engaged to Irish songstress Morgan Deane (25) on Sunday, The Times is reporting.

Smith went with Deans to Ireland instead of returning to South Africa with the rest of the team.

Cricket fans should not expect him back in the country anytime soon either, as he will be playing in the Indian Premier League until the end of May.

Deane, who is a Eurovision backing singer, confirmed the news on twitter writing “Thank you for all the wonderful messages… your words make me smile” on her page.

Cricket SA media officer Michael Owen Smith also confirmed the engagement to The Times saying: “It is true. He actually became engaged on Sunday”.

We wonder how fans will react to Smith when he returns to South Africa, knowing that he chose to pursue his romantic life instead of facing up to the many South African who were furious after yet another World Cup disappointment.
