The 23-year-old AC Milan star — who is in Brazil with his country's World Cup squad — also posted a photograph on his Instagram account showing the beach in Rio de Janeiro where he proposed to his sweetheart. "She said yes... The most important yes in my life.
That was the place of my question! I Love you and happy birthday too ! Je t'aime my WIFE," tweeted Balotelli both in Italian and English. Neither the date nor the place where they will get married was revealed. Balotelli's next significant date is the opening group game with England.
