Cristiano Ronaldo flew back to Spain after his reported proposal

Cristiano Ronaldo is said to have asked girlfriend of 10 months Irina Shayk to marry him.

The Real Madrid striker reportedly flew from Spain to New York to surprise Irina with a single red rose and take her out for a romantic Valentine's Day dinner, where he's thought to have got down on one knee.

'They are very happy and have been talking about marriage for some time,' a family friend tells Spanish magazine Que Me Dices.

'It's a very important step in Cristiano's life and we are all very happy.'

Gorgeous underwear model Irina, 24, was snapped wearing a glitzy diamond ring after her evening with Cristiano, 25.

But Irina's agent Lorenzo Martone refused to confirm or deny the engagement.
