“Before I could absorb the images, the love of my life was kneeling before me, asking THE question,” she captioned the video of Adam proposing, captured on his drone.

“I immediately burst into tears and forgot to even look at the ring. 🙈 It was the most magical moment of my life. I wish I could rewind and relive it 1000 times over. 😭

“Eventually, I remembered to say “YES,” then actually looked at the ring. It was incredible. I get to wear this? Forever?! 🥹”

After the romantic proposal, April went to the bathroom to retouch her makeup – from tears of joy – when she recognised a familiar face floating on the boat beside her with the song “Going to the Chapel” playing.

On the boat was her family, including her mother and former INXS rocker and dad, Kirk.

The proposal was nine months in the making, with Adam considering numerous occasions before selecting the perfect boat trip as he “wanted everything to be just right.”

“Six months 🥰,” she began on Instagram.

“He is so kind, clever, fun, funny, silly, caring and thoughtful. I have had one of the most stressful and unstable years of my life, but he has been there through it all, helping me and supporting me and treating me like a princess. Sometimes I feel guilty that he’s all mine and other people don’t get to have him as their boyfriend because he is so wonderful and I am so lucky. ☺️ Happy anniversary.”
