Ejdesgaard was even more surprised because her friend and compatriot Wozniacki did not give any indication that there was anything wrong between her and McIlroy.
The 25-year-old Irish golfer announced on Friday that he had realised after sending out his wedding invitations over the weekend that he wasn't ready for all that marriage entails.
"I wish Caroline all the happiness she deserves and thank her for the great times we've had," McIlroy said thereby ending what was an almost three-year relationship.
Yesterday, Ejdesgaard (23), also from Denmark, said she was very happy to have received Wozniacki's wedding invitation only a couple of days back.
"It is very difficult for me to comprehend," Ejdesgaard told Danish newspaper BT. "I am probably as surprised as everyone else is about this. I received the invitation two days ago. I'm sure she would have called if anything was wrong," she added.
In fact, Ejdesgaard said she was in contact with Wozniacki earlier in the week. "I texted Caroline only a week or two back, and everything seemed fine with her. She seemed very happy," said Ejdesgaard.
