Accompanying photos of the pair laughing and playing on a beach in Rarotonga, Matilda wrote: "So something quite exciting happened in Rarotonga...I got to pat a giant Trevally named Gina! Oh and also, we got ENGAGED!"

"Actually pinching myself that I get to wake up to that face every day for the rest of my life. I love you Art Green," she wrote.

And on his account, Art wrote: "Got a bit of sand on the knee and made it official," with a ring emoji.

"Looking forward to the rest of my life with this amazing woman."

Spy reported the rumoured engagement earlier in the week after guests at the Rarotonga resort where the pair stayed came forward claiming they witnessed the proposal.

The couple, who met during the first season of The Bachelor NZ in 2015, have been in a serious relationship ever since Green chose Rice over 20 other women in the reality romance competition.

At the time, the couple were forced to keep their relationship under wraps for several weeks until the series finished screening.

But despite initial rumours their romance was all for show, the couple proved the naysayers wrong, documenting their blossoming relationship on social media.
