Rory McIlroy and Caroline Wozniacki announce engagement
This is how you start the year on a high note! (Assuming "Yes!" is an actual proposal - they never did actually specify that)
Two-time major winner Rory McIlroy and long-time girlfriend and tennis star Caroline Wozniacki just announced (via what else, Twitter) that they are more than simply dating. The two are in Australia and sent out these two tweets as they welcomed in the year .

Rumors about the couple have swirled all year and every golf and tennis event where either showed up without the other seems to have exacerbated all the speculation as to whether they were still an item or not. Hopefully, the ring will mean that the two can focus on their respective sports now without the constant scrutiny and distractions of tabloid speculation.
Oh, but planning that wedding...
