Tiesto‘s Tijs Michiel Verwest and haute couture model Annika Backes revealed their engagement to the world via Instagram and Twitter. After two years of courtship, Generation Z Backes and 48-year-old Tiesto prove that age is just a number. Verwest’s proposal occurred at the One&Only Reethi Rah resort in Maldives amid his vigorous, intercontinental tour schedule.
Artists such as Dyro, Firebeatz, APEK, Bassjackers and
Lexy Panterra Ingrosso applauded Tiesto for popping the question. Whereas, Tijs’ protege Martin Garrix still has yet to put in his two cents.
“I am the luckiest girl in the world to get to spend the rest of my life with the best man ever,” gushed Backes. “I love you more than you will ever know!”
