AUCKLAND, New Zealand, June 17 (UPI) -- After three decades and several children, including musical superstar Lorde, Vic O'Connor finally proposed to Sonja Yelich at Niagara Falls on Monday.

Lorde, whose real name is Ella Yelich-O'Connor broke the news on Twitter.

"BEST DAY - went to niagara falls - my dad proposed to my mum after almost 30 years together," wrote the 17-year-old singer.

O'Connor, an engineer, and Yelich, a poet, have three other children together -- Jerry, India and Angelo.

Lorde, whose hit song "Royals" includes the lyric "I've never seen a diamond in the flesh," acknowledged fan jokes.

"Inevitable response yes I know I have seen a diamond now," she added.
