Schmeichel quickly followed suit, posting a blurred photo of them kissing with "She said yes" wrote on it.

He then captioned it with: "So that makes me the lucky one."

The ex-goalkeeper shot to stardom with Manchester United in the 90s, lifting five Premier League titles, three FA Cups and the Champions League as part of the all-conquering treble winners in 1999.

Schmeichel, who helped Denmark to European Championship glory in 1992, went on to play for Aston Villa and United's rivals Man City before retirement.

But his surname still strikes fears in to the hearts of strikers today, with his son Kasper continue the family's goalkeeping tradition by guarding the net of Leicester City.

And the 30-year-old matched one of his father's achievements, much to Schmeichel Snr's delight, by helping the Foxes to a shocking title win back in 2016.

Now it will be junior who is offering the congratulates as he prepares to official welcome his new step mum to the family.
