Lorde has something other than her Grammy-winning album to celebrate. The 17-year-old singer’s parents got engaged on Monday during a family trip to Niagara Falls.
According to Us Weekly, Vic O’Connor and Sonja Yelich are finally preparing to marry after spending nearly thirty years together.
Like most teens, the "Royals" singer took to Twitter to voice her excitement. “BEST DAY,” she tweeted. “Went to Niagara Falls—my dad proposed to my mum after almost 30 years together.”
BEST DAY - went to niagara falls - my dad proposed to my mum after almost 30 years together.

Lorde is known for her down-to-earth lifestyle and credits her parents for keeping her grounded in the face of her recent rise to fame. She most recently spoke about her family in an interview with Interview Magazine.
"My parents are pretty good; they understand what I really want," Lorde said. "If I do decide to leave school at the end of this year, that's a bridge we'll cross. But I do, one day, still really want to go to University, to study media and film probably."
The singer has two sisters. Congratulations to the happy family!
