Former Miss South Africa Adè van Heerden is engaged.

Adè shared the news of her engagement on Instagram, writing: "The easiest yes of my life!" 

The medical doctor went on to share several photos from an engagement photoshoot and wrote in the caption: "Trusting God with the details of our relationship lead us to this moment! And now, I get to marry my best friend."

Photographer Sharyn Hodges captured the beautiful moment and shared some behind-the-scenes tidbits on her Instagram, writing: "My favourite part of this shoot was the 50 minutes we chatted after the shoot about life, Covid, 2020 lessons, work and their love story!"

"I can't believe people like this exist," she added. 

Speaking to Huisgenoot, Adè said that the engagement came as a surprise and she only realised at the very last minute what was about to happen. In that moment she had "peace," she says.

The couple got engaged on Tuesday at Emily Moon River Lodge in Plettenberg Bay.
