With three photos of her staring into the eyes of her new fiance, him down on one need on a yacht and also of them embracing in the sunset, the caption read: "Yessss to a lifetime with you."

Courtois, 30, then sent a message to his partner after making the gesture on her birthday, it read: "Happy birthday to my future wife, to my number one supporter, to the person that makes me laugh every day and especially to this amazing plus mom for the kids.

"I can't thank you enough for all you do for us!"

Mishel replied: "The love of my life!!! Thank you. The best gift life could ever give me is to have you by my side. I'm the luckiest girl on planet."

Mishel, who has just turned 25, has often been seen supporting the goalkeeper at both Real Madrid and Belgium fixtures, as she did during his recent Champions League final triumph for which he was named man of the match.
