TV Chef Donal Skehan is engaged
The 27-year-old chef and TV personality has been with his now fiancee since 2006

The Howth native has tried his hand at a number of things in the public eye, such as music, TV, food blogging and photography. Most of his work in the last eight years has been accomplished with the help of his girlfriend and business partner Sofie Larsson. The young TV chef took to Twitter to announce their recent engagement this morning.

He wrote “We’re engaged! Proposed to my beautiful girlfriend Sofie over the weekend. She said yes!” The couple met eight years ago in 2006, when Sofie, who is from Gothenburg in Sweden, spent the summer in Howth while visiting a friend.

Writing on his blog, he said “I have been planning to do it for the last few months and when we booked a weekend break to one of the most romantic cities in the world, I knew the time was right. With a thumping heart and a view of the Eiffel Tower, I took out the ring and said those very real words, “Will you marry me?” "After leaving me hanging with lots of gasping, I put on the ring on her finger and she said yes! A pretty perfect weekend, all said and done," he wrapped up.
