Congratulations are in order for burns survivor Turia Pitt and her partner Michael Hoskin who are engaged!
The couple revealed in an interview with Women’s Weekly that they became engaged while on holiday in the Maldives and that Michael has had the ring for quite some time!
“When Turia was in intensive care four years ago I bought a diamond ring,” Michael said.
“I’m so overwhelmed with love at the moment,” Turia said.
Turia was badly injured during a marathon in the Kimberley four years ago where she suffered burns to 64 percent of her body.
Michael has been by her side through the whole journey with Turia telling the audience at an event earlier this year that he has been able to drop the role of full-time carer as she has regained her independence, describing her life now as “incredibly blessed”.
