Turia Pitt and long-term boyfriend Michael Hoskin are engaged

Burns survivor Turia Pitt and her long-term partner Michael Hoskin are engaged.

Michael popped the question while on holidays in the Maldives with the former model.

However he revealed to Women’s Weekly, he actually bought the diamond ring four years ago, when Turia was intensive care.


In 2011, Turia suffered horrific burns in a bushfire while competing in the ultra-marathon in The Kimberley.

Following the engagement, Turia told the magazine: “It’s an incredible feeling. Michael’s my life partner, I’ve known that for years – and we’ve talked about marriage for as long as I can remember, and yet the proposal still came as a surprise.”
