    And on the fourth finger was a massive diamond engagement ring.

    He wrote: “The Love of my life,” followed by a red love heart.

    Earlier in the day, Zaha revealed he was out for a romantic dinner with Paige.

    And after a candle-lit meal complete with red roses, the Ivory Coast international got down on one knee in a shirt and chinos to pop the question accompanied by live music.

    Paige, who was wearing a gorgeous black dress, appeared overwhelmed with emotion but thankfully said yes.

    She shared more pictures from the special romantic night, calling it a ‘dream’ on Instagram.

    Bannister wrote: “I said YES!!

    “Pop the champagne, I’m changing my last name.”

    Palace team-mates past and present including Jeffrey Schlupp, Mile Jedinak, Tyrick Mitchell, Odsonne Edouard and Nathaniel Clyne were among those to comment their best wishes on Zaha’s post.

    And Rio Ferdinand, who was at Manchester United when Zaha joined the club in 2013, added: “Congrats bro,” with a carrot emoji – in reference to the mega-carat diamond.

    Zaha started dating Bannister in 2016, when he was spotted with the former University of Westminster student outside her hall of residence in Wembley.

    They welcomed their first child together in November 2020, son Saint Laurence.

    On the field this season, Zaha has scored six goals in 19 Premier League appearances under Patrick Vieira and missed a chunk of the season to represent Ivory Coast at the Africa Cup of Nations.
