  • Caitriona Balfe, best know for playing Claire Randall in drama series Outlander, has announced she’s engaged to Tony McGill.

    The actress made the revelation about her engagement at last night’s Golden Globes ceremony.

    ‘It happened over the break. I’m very happy,’ she gushed to People magazine.

    Caitriona took the opportunity to show off her rock as she graced the red carpet wearing a show-stopping black dress by prestigious French design house Chanel.

    Featuring a round diamond set beside two sapphires, the eye-catching ring proved to be the perfect accessory for her elegant ensemble.

    Caitriona’s husband-to-be is Tony McGill, someone she has been in a relationship with for around two years.

    Although the duo tend to keep their relationship out of the public eye, they were both snapped attending the Oscar Wilde Awards back in February 2017.

    At the Golden Globes, Caitriona bagged a nomination in the Best Performance By An Actress In A Television Series category. She was pipped to the post by Elisabeth Moss for her portrayal of Offred in the on-screen adaptation of Margaret Attwood’s novel The Handmaid’s Tale.

    After the glitzy ceremony, Caitriona took to Twitter to reflect on the evening – and even confessed to tucking into a couple of unhealthy post-show snacks.

    ‘In bed. Obligatory naughty burger pizza combo consumed and the most prevalent conversation I’ve had all night was about the amazing group of fans on the route to the show’, the 38-year-old wrote.

    ‘Seriously BEST FANS EVER #bestfans #outlander.’
