Romy Madley Croft, vocalist and guitarist for British indie pop band The xx, has announced her engagement to her partner, designer and artist Hannah Marshall.
Romy and Hannah shared the news via her’s and her’s engagement Instagram posts, with Romy writing: “Last night, a very special person asked me a very beautiful question….I said yes!”
Hannah responded in her own post: “SHE SAID YES!”
“In the last few years there is no one that has had greater impact on the way I see myself and the world around me than my girlfriend Romy,” she said.
“She has a uniquely beautiful mind and heart, one that I feel so grateful to share. Romy’s emotional authenticity, intelligence and creative integrity thread through everything she thinks, says and does. To me, she is the embodiment of living a wholehearted life, one that is brave and courageous.”
Fittingly, The xx just days earlier released their romantic new single “Say Something Loving” from their new album I See You, out on January 13.
The group told Triple J last month that an Australian tour was on the cards this year, after the album’s release.
