Lorde shared some lovely family news on Twitter on Monday; her father Vic O'Connor has just proposed to her mother, Sonja Yelich while the whole family went on a trip to Niagara Falls.

Clearly, the singer couldn't be happier. Also, she made a reference to her hit single Royals, by quipping "Inevitable response yes I know I have seen a diamond now." Her parents have been together for almost thirty years.

The New Zealander said "We're one of the louder, more insane families. We're all super creative and impulsive. It's been a good environment to learn how to speak your mind, you know? And be feisty. And unapologetic."

However, Lorde admits that she is the quietest of the lot. "It took me a while to be able to find a voice in terms of being able to talk to people." Congratulations to the happy family!
