(AP) — Colin Montgomerie is about to be a married man again.

The tempestuous Scot confirmed Tuesday that he is engaged to Gaynor Knowles. According to the Daily Mail, Montgomerie proposed over the weekend in front of their seven children — three of his from his 14-year marriage, and four of hers from her marriage to Scottish furniture tycoon George Knowles Jr., who died of a heart attack in 2003.

"We are just thrilled and looking forward to the future together," Montgomerie said in a statement. "We have not yet made any formal plans, but will be planning with the respective families in the coming weeks."
