Stephen Ireland Pops The Question (Video)
Apart for being Mr. Injured, Mr. Hyperbole and Mr. Whiner, Stephen Ireland is Mr. Romance. Faced with this tough question: how do you say I love you to the woman you already bought a 250,000 pound Bentley, Ireland got creative. This week he flew his best friends to California, rented a yacht, smuggled a 25,000 pound diamond ring into his togs and got down on one knee to ask his beloved Jessica Lawlor to marry him. And then, just so the world could share in his happiest moment, he provided iPhone footage of the magical moment to the Sun (no word if there was cash exchanged for the video, though please assume what you will).
There’s quite a few Irish accents off-camera cooing at the size of the rock. The Sun filed the story under ‘Bizarre’. Imagine if he was still with the Ireland team, bumming around Malahide, doing Trapattoni impressions? The man has his priorities right.
