Lorde’s Parents Finally Got Engaged — After 30 Years

And before you ask about diamonds...

Looks like Lorde has finally seen a diamond in the flesh. The 17-year-old singer’s father proposed to her mother at Niagara Falls on Monday (June 16), according to Twitter.

In an emoji-filled tweet, Ella Yelich-O’Connor announced the news to her fans and followers:

We’re not sure whether her parents, poet Sonja Yelich and civil engineer Vic O’Connor, are renewing their vows or finally tying the knot after several decades — an interview with Rolling Stone refers to O’Connor as Yelich’s “husband.” Either way, congrats are seriously in order — and wedding rings are no longer just in the movies.
