She is incredibly supportive of Paddy and often uploads photos cheering him on before and during fights. The couple also have a dog called Lenny, who regularly appears on Laura’s Instagram.

The couple got engaged two years ago

Paddy and Laura have actually been engaged for two years. Paddy popped the question in February 2020 while the couple were in Thailand. Laura shared the special moment on Instagram.

She uploaded a picture of Paddy down on one knee with the caption: “Still in complete shock! My Pad completely shocked me. Never did I think he had anything like this in his locker. It’s everything and more I could ever imagine! Love you always and forever.’

The couple have yet to officially tie the knot but, in February 2022, Laura shared the same picture with the caption: “Two years engaged. Countdown to the wedding.”
