Congratulations are in order for Mr Ireland – he's engaged.

Darren King went up against hundreds of Irish lads to win the title last year, and now he has more good news to celebrate as he's set to marry his long time love, Annmarie.

The official Mr Ireland Twitter account announced the news this weekend, saying they are "delighted" for him.

Congratulations to MR Ireland @darrenjohnking who just announced his engagement to the beautiful Annmarie #Mrireland, delighted for them."

The couple are currently in the Czech Republic to celebrate their engagement.

In a Facebook post, Darren wrote that he's over the moon that Annmarie will be the future "Mrs King."

“I am thrilled this beautiful lady accepted my proposal,” he told his fans.
