All Black heartthrob Daniel Carter has proposed to his longtime girlfriend, former Black Sticks striker Honor Dillon.

Carter's Facebook page revealed the news today.

"Thought I'd let u know I asked my long term girlfriend Honor to marry me & she said yes. We are very happy & looking forward to spending our future together," he said on the page.

He went on to say there are no wedding plans as yet.

"We are enjoying being engaged for now, so that's all the details there are," Carter added.

Fans' comments ranged from congratulatory to dismay with one, Nicola Kirkup, declaring she was "demented with grief and rage".

Carter has been absent from the ITM Cup all season through injury but is expected to be named in the All Blacks' end of year tour squad on Sunday.

Dillon met Carter in 2000 and the pair began dating a few years later.

Carter has been voted New Zealand's sexiest man in a number of polls and has been voted third sexiest male athlete in the world by American cable channel E!
