Armytage announced her engagement in June this year.

“It’s very private,” she said, before reluctantly sharing a few details.

Armytage said Lavender, a farmer who lives in the Southern Highlands of NSW, actually proposed a few weeks ago.

“You’ve kept it secret for a few weeks?” a shocked Kochie said.

“I had to wait for the ring to arrive,” Armytage replied.

“He said, ‘Darling, do you want to marry me?’” she revealed. “It was just private and lovely. It was very romantic.”

Armytage said that Lavender asked her dad Mac for permission before popping the question.

“My parents love him. Both our families get on very well; it’s a very happy union.”

As for the wedding details, the Sunrise star said there are no plans yet.
