They went on to say that Ashley felt nervous before the offer: “He was just waiting for the right moment to offer.
“He’s very shy, he had to gather a lot of courage to make an offer.”
GOOD! turned to Ashley Cole’s representative for comment.
After their proposal, Sharon shared an image of herself kissing her future husband in the room where Ashley proposed marriage, which was decorated with a stunning set of white bouquets.
Sharon, who is believed to have met former left-back Ashley when she joined Italian club Roma in 2014, signed the photo: “The easiest ‘yes’ I’ve ever said.”

The couple welcomed their first child in February 2016, after fans speculated that Sharon had been waiting for months, but they have not yet revealed their son’s name.
Two years later, in 2018, Ashley and Sharon welcomed another child – a daughter named Grace.
This comes after Ashley broke up with Girls Aloud star Cheryl 12 years ago after they married in 2006.
The former couple began dating in 2004, before Ashley proposed to the 38-year-old singer in Dubai in 2005.
Cheryl and Ashley were married in a lavish ceremony at Highclere Castle in North London in 2006, which was completely covered by OK!
Their marriage ended when Cheryl, who now shares the five-year-old bear with One Direction star Liam Payne, announced she was splitting with Ashley in 2010.
The hitmaker of The Fight For This Love has filed for divorce in the Supreme Court in London, as she invoked his “unreasonable behavior” before ending their four-year marriage.
