Irish Model Nadia Forde is Engaged to Welsh Rugby Star

Irish model, singer and actress Nadia Forde, has taken to Instagram to announce her engagement to rugby star beau Dominic Day.

The loved-up pair have been together for more than three years, and have travelled the world together as Dominic was signed to various clubs in Japan and Australia. The Welshman played his final game for Bath Rugby Club in 2016, before he and Nadia moved to Nagoya in Japan where he played for Toyota Verblitz. A few months later, they travelled to South Australia after Dom signed with the Melbourne Rebels.

Their love survived a long-distance relationship for a brief time, whilst they pursuied their respective sporting and singing careers. She said:

“What’s tough is going from living with someone to not living with them for a stint. We make it work. It’s our jobs and we both want to work”

However it was on a romantic getaway together to New York City when Dominic popped the question to the model-turned-actress. Posting a snap to Instagram, she said “NYC with my Hubby to be” with the couple posing in central park.

Congratulations to the happy couple!
