Steve Smith's fiancee reveals how Dani Willis kept her engagement ring hidden
Australia cricket skipper's fiancée Dani Willis reveals how super batsman kept his engagement ring out of her sight in New York
NO situation can ever rattle Australia cricket captain Steve Smith, be it on the field or off it. Smith's fiancee Dani Willis revealed an interesting incident of how the swashbuckling batsman's planned proposal to her almost turned out to be a huge flop when the couple were holidaying in New York.
Dani posted this picture on Instagram showing her engagement ring on the terrace of Rockerfeller Center, New York
It was June 29 this year. Smith bought the ring and took Willis to the Rockerfeller Center in New York, but he didn't factor in the security check at the bottom of the building where pockets have to be emptied before you walk through a metal detector. "So he's got to the security scanners with the ring in his pocket and then we was like, 'Uh oh, what am I going to do here!'" Willis told the Nine Network yesterday.
But Smith was quick to react. "Luckily I had a plastic bag with some water in it. And he was like, 'Oh, I'll carry that bag for you' and he slipped the ring box in there. At the time I was like 'OK, thanks'. I thought it was a bit weird. But he snuck it through security."
