Anthony Albanese has become the first Australian prime minister to get engaged while in office, revealing Thursday that his partner accepted his marriage proposal on Valentine's Day. He and Jodie Haydon - a financial services professional - have been together for three years.

Albanese said he proposed on a balcony of his official residence, known as the Lodge, following a romantic dinner at an Italian restaurant. "She said yes," Albanese posted with a love heart symbol on the X social media platform.

The first-term prime minister said he had planned both the date and place of the proposal and even helped design Haydon's diamond ring. But he did not know if the wedding would be held before he sets the date for Australia's next election.
