The couple got engaged over Christmas after seven months of dating, when Ben proposed in his home country of the United States.

Maya spent Christmas at Ben’s £ 3.7million mansion in Moorestown, New Jersey and the pair have been pictured out together frequently since his transfer to the Brooklyn Nets.

A source told the publication at the time: ‘Ben adores Maya and has fallen head over heels for her. He picked up the ring on Jewelers’ Row in the diamond district of Philadelphia the day before he proposed.

They added: ‘Ben was so excited, but they’ve decided to keep the news low-key and tell only those closest to them. Maya flew to New Jersey to spend Christmas with him and is still there now.

‘They had a small family gathering last weekend and announced their engagement.’

Experts have valued Maya’s emerald-cut diamond engagement ring at £ 600k ($ 800k).

Maya and Ben were first romantically linked in June, after they were seen together on a night out at restaurant Sexy Fish in London.

The couple went public while kissing in the stands at Wimbledon in front of the world’s media, as they stopped by the annual tennis tournament.
