Man City star Bernardo Silva to wed stunning model girlfriend Ines Tomaz after proposing while on post-season holiday
MANCHESTER CITY star Bernardo Silva is set to wed his stunning model girlfriend Ines Tomaz.
The Portuguese beauty revealed overnight she had accepted a marriage proposal from the midfield maestro.
Ines showed off her engagement ring as she cuddled up to the 27-year-old and wrote on Instagram: “Forever YES. My endless love.”
She finished her romantic message with heart and ring emojis.
Then she added in a separate confirmation: “YES, a thousand times YES.”
Silva posted an identical message, and the first person to respond on his social media was the former girlfriend of his Man City teammate Ruben Dias.

Singer April Ivy wrote: “I’m so happy for you, hurrah for the bride and groom.”
Ines’ sister Mariana, suggesting the couple may soon have more good news for their fans, wrote: “Endless happiness. I can’t wait to see this beautiful family growing.”
Silva confirmed in May 2020 he had found love again with Ines after his split from French model Alicia Verrano.
They spent last season living together in a Manchester city centre apartment with their pet dog John – a French bulldog named after John Stones.

The Lisbon-born footballer, who has established himself as a fans’ favourite since signing from Monaco in May 2017, did not reveal how or where he had asked for Ines’ hand in marriage.
But the background scenery and their smart clothes pointed to it being after a romantic dinner in the Portuguese capital where they were born and grew up.
The couple’s love blossomed during the coronavirus lockdown which they spent with friends in a large house near Lisbon.
Gorgeous Ines, whose sister Mariana represented Portugal at Miss Global 2017, summed up 2020 with a summer photo of her chilling out with the midfielder which she captioned: “The best of 2020.”
And Silva immediately showed he agreed by posting a heart emoticon under her gushing comment.
Ines uploaded the snap days after the footballer wished fans "Merry Christmas" with a snap showing him and his gorgeous girlfriend enjoying an intimate dinner in tracksuit bottoms and socks.
Ines looked happy and relaxed as she sipped red wine, appearing to confirm she had moved to Manchester virtually full-time and only made brief returns to her native Portugal for work reasons.
Silva fuelled speculation of a new romance after he revealed in April 2020 Ines was one of the group of three women and three other male pals he had been in lockdown with.
And he confirmed he had found love again the following month.
Ines, whose full name is Ines Degener Tomaz, went public with their relationship by posting footage on her Instagram of the footballer with his arms round her on a beach.
The playmaker responded with his own photo, showing them oozing happiness and looking tanned and relaxed at a dinner table.
Neither Silva or Ines gave away any details at the time of when they began dating, although they are thought to have been seeing each for several months in secret.
They holidayed together in September 2020 in the paradise island of Formentera near Ibiza.
Reports around the time Silva is understood to have split with ex Alicia said he reluctantly ended their two-year relationship with her because it had “gone cold” following the brunette’s move to the UK.
Monte Carlo-born Alicia, who met Silva when she landed a job as an intern marketing assistant at his former club Monaco, flew to Russia to support Portugal at the last World Cup.
Soon after arriving she shared a video of fans wearing Portuguese shirts with her partner’s name on ahead of his team’s match against Uruguay.
But the last happy couple photo they shared on social media was in May 2018 from the upmarket resort of Sesimbra near Lisbon.
Silva's team-mate Jack Grealish joked that his substitution was key to Manchester City beating Aston Villa in a dramatic 3-2 final day league win during Monday’s open-top bus parade.
Silva’s replacement Ilkay Gundogan scored twice to snatch victory for his team and clinch the Premier League title.

Grealish, who this week has been partying in Ibiza, joked afterwards: "I said earlier on the coach, it's been brilliant to win my first title.
"I want to thank everyone – but the main person I want to thank is Bernardo Silva for coming off in the 70th-minute because he was miles off it yesterday."
