‘She said yes!’: Irish presenter shares amazing engagement news

There'll no doubt be huge celebrations in 2fm this morning, as one of the station's most popular presenters has just revealed some briliant news.

Jenny Greene announced last night on social media that she and her long-term girlfriend Kelly Keogh are now engaged. The pair have been an item for almost three years, and Jenny popped the question during a romantic trip to Portugal this week.

The DJ, who co-hosts The Nicky Byrne Show on 2fm, posted a sweet picture of the couple to Facebook and Twitter, and of course didn't hesitate to show off Kelly's gorgeous ring.

"She said yes!" Jenny wrote, alongside a snap of Kelly's square-cut diamond. What a sparkler!

Jenny and Kelly's engagement is timely, given that the Marriage Equality Act was signed into law two weeks ago, allowing same-sex couples to legally marry in Ireland. 

Speaking about tying the knot in an interview last year, Jenny said she hoped to do it on Irish soil when the time came.

"I would love to get married in Ireland," she said when asked about the Yes Equality campaign which started last year ahead of the referendum in May 2015.

"I am not a big campaigner and I don’t go out and march. But I think anybody should be allowed to get married if they want to… I don’t have a problem if someone else wants to get married so I don’t understand why they should have a problem with what I do," she said.

Jenny's friends and colleagues, including RTE's Eoghan McDermott and Ciara King, were quick to offer congratulations last night:

We're sure the celebrations will continue in full swing in Portugal today!
