"Yes I am engaged 'cause I found a friend for life in Hazel Keech."
After weeks of rumours, Indian cricketer Yuvraj Singh has finally announced his engagement to Hazel Keech!
In true celebrity fashion, the news first broke on Twitter on November 15, 2015.
Both Yuvraj and Hazel revealed the happy occasion on social media, inviting a ton of ‘congratulations’ from B-town.
Actors Abhishek Bachchan, Riteish Deshmukh, Sonam Kapoor and Sophie Choudry could not be happier for the couple.
Popular singer Jazzy B says: “All the best bro. Welcome to our league.”

The couple’s wedding rumours surfaced in early November, soon after Harbhajan married actress Geeta Basra.
Despite keeping a low profile, they were both at the wedding reception, fuelling rumours of their impending wedding scheduled for December 2015.
Yuvraj’s father, Yograj Singh, is happy that his son, 34, has found true love in the 28-year-old former Bigg Boss contestant.
He said: “I was introduced to her by Yuvraj and she is a very nice girl.
“I am confident that marrying her will change his fortunes and he will return to the national squad. He definitely has it in him to represent India.”
We hear the wedding may be taking place in February 2016.
Many congratulations to Yuvraj and Hazel!
