Supermodel Bar Refaeli couldn’t wait to share her excitement at becoming engaged to her 40-year-old businessman boyfriend, Adi Ezra. The blond beauty shared a romantic photo on Instagram today (March 11) in which a framed photo of the couple kissing beside three peach-hued roses is draped with a gold ‘love’ necklace. The 29-year-old has now confirmed that she’ll be saying “I do.”
Her rep later told the Daily Mail: “We are pleased to tell you that she is engaged.”
Bar and Adi met in 2014 through mutual friends, and he was her first serious relationship following her split with actor Leonardo DiCaprio in 2011.
Wedding bells were thought to be on the cards on Saturday when Israeli newspaper Israel Hayom reported that the couple had become engaged. The pair were holidaying in the Caribbean when businessman Adi proposed.
Adi reportedly popped the question on Wednesday evening and an emotional Bar immediately said ‘yes’, sources told Israel Hayom. They are thought to be celebrating the happy event on the island, as they are not expected to fly back to Israel until next week.
Speaking to the same newspaper a few months ago, Bar revealed that she was “in a happy relationship” and that they “loved each other very much”.
“I’m in a happy relationship, and we love each other very much. Everything fits and everything is just right,” she said at the time.
Bar also spoke of her desired to become a mom. “I won’t speak for him, but the only thing stopping me from getting pregnant now is that it’s so much fun with him that I don’t want to change anything yet.
“I also don’t want to exhaust our relationship — I hope that never happens — I still have not exhausted our connection. I want more and more.
“Also, I’ve basically been ready to be a mother since I was 22. I’ve had names picked out in my head for kids for the last eight years.”
