EastEnders’ Matt Di Angelo engaged after romantic proposal in Dominican Republic

EastEnders actor Matt Di Angelo has taken himself off the market after proposing to his longtime girlfriend Sophia Perry this week.

The happy couple have given their Instagram followers serious travel envy over the past week with their romantic holiday to the Dominican Republic, which has included rest, relaxation – and a surprise proposal.

A few days into their break, Matt, 32, found the perfect moment to pop the question to Sophia and it involved a sandy beach, a bottle of champagne and, even better, pizza.

A couple after our own heart.

After asking Sophia to be his wife, the former soap star shared a photo of the engagement set-up, which included the stunning diamond ring placed inside the pizza box with the beautiful beach in the backdrop.

And of course, Sophia said the all-important “yes”.

Sophia was completely in her element shared a photo of the engagement ring on her finger, while holding a glass of bubbly in one hand and chomping on pizza in the other.

Seriously, could they be anymore goals?

She sweetly captioned the image: ‘ I [love] PIZZA… AND MY FIANCÉ.’

The proposal was perfectly timed to coincide with Matt’s 32nd birthday which fell on Wednesday (1 May), the day he proposed, which certainly made for the perfect present.

After sharing the happy news, the couple were bombarded with congratulatory messages from Matt’s celebrity friends, including his former EastEnders co-star Rita Simons, who said: ‘Mazeltov!!! Finally! You’re gonna be a real grown up!!!’

Hollyoaks actor James Sutton chimed in: ‘MAAAAAATE!!! HUGE congrats to you both. Wonderful news x.’

Ironically, Sophia is a wedding planner so no doubt preparations for her own nuptials will go off without a hitch.
