The Strictly Come Dancing star announced his happy news on Boxing Day (26 Dec 2017).
He shared an adorable photo of the couple holding each other as they stood in the middle of a heart made from petals, and Sarah’s dazzling engagement ring could be seen as he called them “The Merrygolds” – with Aston sharing a string of hashtags beneath the heartwarming image.
Writing beneath the sweet photo, the 29 year old said: “Allow me to introduce you all to my fiancée #TheMerrygolds #shesaidyes #enganged #wifey #mummydaddyandbabymerrygold(sic)”
Their fans raced to congratulate the parents-to-be and share in their happy news.
One congratulated him and then joked: “don’t know which way to feel, our chances are gone!”
Another said: “What a beautiful couple and wonderful news congratulations another JLS wedding”

Aston has topped off one of the busiest years of his life since rising to fame within boyband JLS with the engagement.
As well as wowing everyone with his performances on Strictly, Aston found out he’s set to become a first time father.
He’s also currently busy creating new music for his upcoming tour in April.
And the popular singer and dancer spoke exclusively to OK! Online about becoming a father.
The couple decided not to find out the sex, meaning they’ve opted for a neutral nursery, but they have discussed baby names, with Aston telling us: “We’ve picked few names, but we’ve kind of left them to the side, we didn’t want to have one name for the baby ready.
As far as opting for a modern name or traditional moniker, he said: “I don’t really know even know what is traditional anymore, there are a whole array of different cultures mixed now, we’re in a world now when what comes under ‘traditional’ might be different to different people.”
