Kyle Cassim, host of The Kyle Cassim Show on 5FM, is engaged!

The South African radio DJ popped the question to his girlfriend, Nicole Marilli, while on vacation in Portugal.

Along with the announcement of their engagement, Cassim shared their extraordinary love story, which began when he first met her in 2011.

"In about 2011, I met a girl named Nicole through a best friend of mine. I instantly had a crush on her and knew there was some sort of chemistry," Kyle wrote in the lengthy Instagram post before adding that, unfortunately, she was unavailable when he wanted to ask her out.

10 years later, the pair bumped into each other when Kyle made another move. And while Nicole was seeing someone else again, she ended that relationship to pursue something special with Kyle.


"My heart is complete, and I promise to love you forever! I can't wait for our journey together and cannot wait for the world to call you Mrs Cassim," Kyle concluded in the post.
