Jenson Button is engaged to former Playboy model Brittny Ward.

The F1 star, 38, got down on one knee after two years of dating the stunning American model.

The 27-year-old blonde shared the news on Instagram sharing a romantic picture of the pair.

"Soon to be Mrs. Button," she commented sharing the ring emoji.

Both barefoot on the beach, they look deeply in love as they gaze into each other's eyes.

Wearing matching navy blue outfits, it seems they participated in an engagement photoshoot before making their news public.

They've been dating since March 2016 - just three months after his split from model wife Jessica Michibata was confirmed.

The Formula 1 ace, split from his wife Jessica Michibata in December 2015 - after just one year of marriage.

A statement from the couple's reps insisted they'd parted on good terms and that nobody else was involved.

It read: "Jenson and Jessica have decided to go their separate ways and it is very amicable. There is no-one else involved."

Jenson recently snapped up a £5million mansion in Los Angeles where he's expected to live with Brittny after making the move from a rented house in Monaco.

The motor-racing driver, who never actually lived with his wife during his one-year failed marriage, bought a £5million five-bedroom ranch-style property with a spa, fire-pit and surround sound home cinema.

The luxury home, with views over the Hollywood Hills, also boasts a salt-water swimming pool.

While he was married to model Jessica Michibata, she lived in a flat in Tokyo with her mum while he lived in the French principality.
