All Blacks midfielder and Blues centre Rieko Ioane is engaged to his long-term girlfriend Dione Iusitini.

The pair shared the news on Instagram yesterday in a series of photos.

“For life baby,” Iusitini captioned the post, which tagged Ioane.

He shared one of the photos from the post to his story with a love heart emoji.

A number of rugby players took to the comment section to congratulate the happy couple.

Ioane was captured down on one knee in one of the photos, where the happy couple could also be seen hugging and kissing.

A ‘Will you marry me’ sign could be seen on a table, along with a bouquet of flowers and a handful of red roses.

It appears Iusitini’s dog was in on the proposal, with Iusitini posting to her story: “My baby with the ring” — a jewellery bag attached to its red collar. Ioane can later be seen in one of the photos giving the dog a pat.

Fellow All Blacks midfielder David Havili announced his engagement to his partner Lucy Sellwood last month.
