It was a day with a difference, and Kerre Woodham used a leap year tradition to hook the man of her dreams by proposing to long-time partner Tom McIvor.
The broadcaster was one of the many women who took advantage of the February 29 custom - where women can propose to men - to pop the question.
Yesterday, Woodham posted a photo of a card that read, "I choose you" on Facebook accompanied with the message:
"... and he chose me. I'll be Mrs McIvor - officially - within the next 12 months."
Woodham did not want to discuss the details of how she proposed to her long-time and extremely private partner but she said he wasn't surprised.
The broadcaster and columnist said she didn't expect the overwhelming response to her announcement.
She said until there was a ring and a date, it was more "a declaration of intent".
We caught wind of this on Twitter last evening after Kerre Woodham made her gramd announcement. Good on her and her Irishman; we wish them every happiness, and we commend Kerre for seizing a once-every-four-years opportunity.
