Get ready for a real-life Home and Away wedding — Luke Mitchell and Rebecca Breeds are engaged! Luke, 27, tweeted early this morning, “Ok so in response to Beyonce... I liked it, so I put a ring on it!” The cute couple have been dating for a few years and are often seen at red carpet events together. Art also imitated life when they shared an onscreen romance on the show (they portray Romeo Smith and Ruby Buckton).
When we caught up with them at the opening of Marquee Sydney at the end of March, Rebecca, 24, told us of her plans to whisk Luke away on a romantic trip for his birthday, and that’s where the proposal took place! Luke told New Idea, “Honestly, it was one of the most difficult things I’ve ever done in my life. I had the element of surprise — I didn’t tell anyone what I was planning, not a soul, not even my parents. But pretending there was nothing special on my mind for three months before I actually asked her to marry me — that was the best acting I’ve ever done!” Congrats to Luke and Rebecca!
