Congratulations are in order for YouTubers Zoe Sugg and Alfie Deyes, who have confirmed they are engaged.

Zoe – also known as Zoella – revealed the happy news in a new Instagram post also shared by Alfie, which consists of a black-and-white clip of the couple embracing in an exotic location, before Zoe turns around to show off her ring.

Accompanied by a white heart emoji, the couple have since received a host of congratulations in the comments, with Strictly Come Dancing star Dianne Buswell – who is also the girlfriend of Zoe's brother Joe – sharing a series of red heart emojis and adding: "So happy".

Alfie's sister Poppy wrote: "YAYYYYY," while Loose Women star Stacey Solomon wrote: "Congratulations".

In a follow up post in her Instagram Stories, Zoe reposted the original clip and shared: "Well this happened today…".

Alfie shared a picture of the couple cuddled up in his Stories, writing: "Laying on a sun lounger watching the stars… with my FIANCÉ".

The happy news comes after Zoe and Alfie revealed back in July that they are expecting their second baby together, a younger sister to their first child Ottilie.

"We are having a little girl!" Zoe said on YouTube. "I'm so excited. I knew from day one that it was a girl, I just knew. It was like every vision I had was Ottie and a little sister. I imagined Alfie with two little girls."

"I'm in the second trimester... I'm about 16, almost 17 weeks, which is exciting. But I would say it's been hard, I'm not going to lie. There's a reason I haven't been making videos and posting…," she added, Alfie admitting that she has had "a really tough time".

Zoe continued: "It's not necessarily the pregnancy symptoms that have been worse this time. I would say they're probably similar-ish to Ottie. But it's actually been my anxiety and my mental health that just took a complete out-of-nowhere – neither of us expected it – nose-dive."

"Having a first trimester in lockdown was heavenly compared to having a first trimester not in lockdown, where everyone is living life normally around you and you have a toddler."
