Chatting to the Courier Mail this week, Ash, who announced her relationship milestone a few weeks ago, revealed that the pair had a rather low-key engagement. In fact, Garry popped the question while they were chilling on the couch at home.

Garry and I have been together for a long time now and I had designed the ring with him,” she revealed.

“We are obviously excited now for the next chapter. We were at home on the couch with the puppies. It was very much just us. It was perfect for us. Everyone has their unique way of doing it,” Ash mused.

The 2021 Wimbledon winner also shed some light on why she took her time announcing the engagement publicly, apparently taking about a week to enjoy her quiet engagement.

Apparently, Ash and Garry wanted to take their time informing family and close friends before making a big announcement, and at one point, they questioned whether they would make it public at all.

They ultimately decided to, announcing the engagement on November 23.
