Is Sergio Ramos getting married? That seems to be the question everyone is asking after the legendary Spanish defender posted a tweet with a wedding ring emoji and a photo showing him kissing the hand of his partner Pilar Rubio, who is wearing a ring.

On Tuesday, the 32-year-old central defender whose skills helped Spain lift the World Cup in 2010, proposed Rubio. And, she accepted.

Ramos, a reliable section in Real Madrid’s fabled defensive wall, confirmed the lovely development on Twitter while posting two photos of himself with Rubio. One of the photos shows Ramos kissing the ring he apparently gave Rubio while proposing.

“Ha dicho que sí | She said yes

Te quiero… para siempre, @PilarRubio_ .

I love you… forever,” read the Tweet written in both Spanish and English.

 

Ramos, known for his dexterity in snatching the ball from under the feet of opponents, has been in a relationship with Rubio since 2012. The two have three children – Sergio (4), Marco (2) and four-month-old Alejandro.

Rubio, who is eight years older than Ramos, is a journalist. It is not clear whether they are getting married or when, if they are.

Ramos’ fans are however excited.

“The real royal wedding,” posted a fan in response to Ramos’ tweet.

“Congratulations, Capi! You don’t miss a thing,” posted another while addressing Ramos as ‘captain’. For the uninitiated, Ramos is the skipper of both the Spanish national team and Real Madrid.

“Nobody would say no to you, Ramos,” said yet another enthusiastic fan.
