If you’re a fan of the ‘Today Show’, you’ll know all about Sylvia Jeffrey and Peter Stefanovic’s love story.
The pair met when they were both appearing on the weekend edition of Today and Jeffreys said in a recent interview that the on-air chemistry between them was immediately evident to those around her.
“My sister and my mum both sat me down after that stint on air with Pete and said, ‘Is there something going on? Cos we can kind of pick up on something.’
There hadn’t been anything [romantic], at that point,” she said. Soon after, their relationship was put on hold as Stefanovic moved overseas to be a foreign correspondent.
The couple reported to old-fashion pen-palling to stay in touch. SO cute! So now, as the couple are holidaying in Europe, Pete has popped the question – in fact, the sneaky pair have been keeping it a secret for a few weeks!
“How’s this for a framer?” Jeffreys captioned a picture of she and her new fiance during their holiday. “A couple of weeks ago Pete popped the question, and I said yes, OF COURSE!!!
We’ve had the most wonderful time celebrating with great mates. We couldn’t be happier (check the grin) and so excited to share the news with everyone.”
Stefanovic was a man of fewer words over on his Instagram: “Asked my missus to be my wife and she said yes.”
Back in the studio at the Today show, the couple’s colleagues couldn’t contain their excitement at the news.
“He, according to Sylvia, got to one knee a couple of weeks ago … she said yes, after she fainted,” Pete’s big brother Karl announced on Today this morning.
