Westlife star Markus Feehily has shared his engagement joy online and revealed "2019 has been so amazing to me so far".

The 38-year-old singer, who is in the middle of a comeback tour with the Irish group, took to Instagram to share the sweet news.

While he has kept the identity of partner a secret, he was overjoyed to tell his followers about his news, and posted an image of his hand placed over his boyfriend's, accompanied with the text:  "2019 has been so amazing to me so far and it’s only getting started! I wanted to be the first to say it... Engaged."

Last month, Westlife released their first single in eight years and fans can't seem to get enough of the band's new track.

The band announced their comeback album and tour last October and set to play two dates in Croke Park this summer.
