England and Liverpool star Joe Gomez has proposed to his long term girlfriend, according to The Sun on Sunday.
The 21 year old, Liverpool defender, bought a huge diamond ring for his childhood sweetheart Tamara Tia, who he started going out with four years ago.
The defender told in the past how he wooed Tamara, 22, over Blackberry Messenger, while travelling on a bus as the couple were going and coming from school in Catford, South London.
And he has credited his girlfriend with helping him to move to Anfield after he was signed from Charlton Athletic in 2015 by then Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers.
Posting an picture of her sparkling diamond ring on Instagram, Tamara wrote: “27.12.18… A day I’ll remember for the rest of my life. The love of my life asked me to marry him…
“There aren’t enough words to describe the feeling I right now. I can’t wait to spend the rest of my life with you.”
Earlier this year Joe Gomez recalled how Tamara had helped him battle loneliness when he moved to Liverpool aged 18 and into a one-bedroom apartment.
He said: We just packed my car and drove up,’ he said. ‘Tamara stayed the first night but was at university in London. She would come up every weekend but, that apart, I was by myself.
‘It is a lot to cope with. I had no exposure to it. I couldn’t cook. I could put a pizza from Iceland in the oven but that was it.”
