They also want to fly all their friends and family out for it some time next summer." The couple - both 26 - are over the moon about their upcoming nuptials, and took to Twitter earlier this week to express their excitement. The sexy brunette wrote: "THANKYOU for all the lovely messages, and yes it's true @markwright_ and I are engaged !!
