Kara revealed Marius proposed in the most simple, but moving way. “It just happened here at home, one Sunday morning, the week before we went away.”

She continued: “We were having a lie-in and I had no idea he was planning to propose. It was so perfect as I am not someone who likes big moments, and it was just very Marius.”

She added: “He says it as he feels it. It was very lovely, very relaxed.”


2018 has turned out to be quite the momentous year for both Kara and Marius. We are so excited for the duo to welcome their first child in the coming weeks.


Congratulations to the doting pair.
