New Brunswick Premier Brian Gallant announces engagement on Twitter

(CP) - New Brunswick Premier Brian Gallant is getting married.

Gallant, who is in his mid-30s, posted the news Monday in both official languages on his Twitter feed, and his office later confirmed it.

In the tweet, Gallant says Karine Lavoie said ``yes'' to spending the rest of her life with him.

He says both he and his dog Blaze couldn't be happier.

His office says he proposed to her March 3rd at the Memramcook Institute.

Gallant also posted a photo of himself casually dressed in a ball cap, Boston Red Sox t-shirt and jeans, and holding Lavoie in his arms. Both wear toothy smiles.

A few people noticed the happy couple were posing in an apple orchard, with one person tweeting it ``doesn't get more New Brunswicky than that.''

A similar announcement on Facebook garnered 650 likes within an hour.
