TV3 presenter Glenda Gilson has become engaged to her boyfriend of three years, Rob Macnaughton, while on holiday in New York.

The Irish Mirror reports that Macnaughton proposed on bended knee in front of passersby in Central Park.

Macnaughton had asked Gilson's father Noel for his daughter's hand in marriage before proposing.

The Xposé presenter said: "I'm just over the moon. It was a big shock, to be honest. Rob is a big romantic at heart."

Gilson continued: "My father was delighted to be asked, although it was difficult for him not to say it to anyone.

"It is a wonderful time and we are just over the moon."
