In some much-needed happy Eurovision-related 2020 news, last year's winner, Duncan Laurence, has announced his engagement to partner Jordan Garfield.

The bisexual Dutch singer shared the special development on social media, sharing a photo to his Instagram story of an engagement ring on his finger.

“I love you” Laurence wrote over the black and white image.

“I am the luckiest man in the world,” songwriter Garfield wrote on his socials, adding that he's “never been so happy”.

“I’m going to marry a kind, smart, genuine, talented and handsome man,” he continued. “I’m also marrying my best friend.”

The pair met in a professional capacity while working together on music in Los Angeles, only going public with their relationship in May of this year.

“We really got to know each other way better through writing music too because you share stories together in a whole different way and you go really deep into those stories and maybe sometimes you get to express emotions that you wouldn't normally express if it's not in writing a song,” Laurence told Eurovision at the time.
