England footballer Harry Kane proposes to long-term girlfriend Kate Goodland

The pair have a baby together

England footballer Harry Kane is engaged to his long-term girlfriend Kate Goodland, after proposing on an idyllic beach during a family holiday.

The Tottenham Hotspur player revealed the lovely news on social media, with a picture of the moment he got down on one knee and popped the question.

Captioning the cute snap, the 23-year-old star wrote: 'She said YES! 😘❤️💍'

His two million followers were quick to comment and send their well-wishes to the happy couple. One wrote 'Good luck and congrats', while another said 'Congratulations. This is so cute, what a great setting mate.' Earlier in the week Harry had also posted a picture with his now fiancée and their six-month-old baby on a boat, sharing a glimpse of his family holiday with his fans.

Captioning the lovely snap, the footballer wrote: 'Boat day with the family'.

Since then, Harry Kane's wife Katie is pregnant with their fourth child.

The pair have been together since their school days, and welcomed their first child together in January, Ivy Jane.

When asked about Kate during an interview with Esquire magazine last year, Harry said: 'We went to school together, so she's seen my whole career.

'Of course, she's finding it a little crazy. I think she's even been in the papers a couple of times taking the dogs out.'

Speaking to the Evening Standard last year, the sportsman also hinted that he wanted to start a family with Kate soon.

'Yes, it's something I'd like to do in the future. It's not on the agenda now, but you never know with these things. Obviously I've got a girlfriend who I've been with for quite a long time now, almost five years, we're settled and we live together.

'There's been a few elbows here and there, she's mentioned it (starting a family) a few times, as normal, but I'm happy with the way things are going and we'll see where it takes us — one day, definitely yes.'

Congratulations to the happy couple!
