Romy Madley Croft from The xx has announced her engagement to girlfriend Hannah Marshall.

Just weeks after the band announced that a new album was on it’s way, the musician took to Instagram to reveal further good news.

Marshall, who is a British designer and visual artist, met the singer through her work with the band.

She has created stage outfits for the trio, and has also worked with Florence and the Machine, Janet Jackson, Jessie Ware, and more.

Croft wrote on Instagram alongside a photo of her an Marshall kissing: “Last night, a very special person asked me a very beautiful question….I said yes! ???????,”

The band got caught up in an equal marriage debate when an anti-equal marriage organisation in Croatia used samples of their music.

The band took to Facebook to debunk the use, and said that they “unconditionally” support the right of same-sex couples to marry.

“It has come to our attention that our music has been used without our permission in a promotional advert by the Croatian organisation “U ime obitelji”,” the statement posted on The xx’s Facebook page said.

“We wish to state that we didn’t, and would never, approve the use of our music by this organisation. To be clear, we unconditionally support the equal right to marriage regardless of sexuality.”
