TV ONE weatherman Tamati Coffey and his partner Tim Smith have this week announced their engagement.
They are understood to be planning to hold a civil union near the end of the year.
Coffey took to his Facebook page to announce the news on Valentine's Day.
Friends and colleagues immediately shared their messages of congratulations.
"That is so romantic! Congrats you two lovebirds, beats a bunch of roses," Jayne Kiely wrote on the social networking site.
"Welcome to the club, bro," Mike Puru added.
TVNZ's spokesperson said that the company wished the couple the very best.
Coffey was last week announced as a finalist in the sexiest man category in the Best on the Box People's Choice Awards.
