Two icons of New Zealand television have announced they're getting married.

The Bachelor NZ star Zac Franich and presenter Erin Simpson are engaged after a year of dating.

Franich, 30, told Woman's Day he proposed onboard a naval boat while the couple was in Napier for the city's Art Deco Festival.

"I knew from quite early on that I wanted to marry Erin," he told the magazine. "It was the easiest decision I've ever made."

Simpson, 36, said she believes she's found "true love". She also confessed she never watched the third season of The Bachelor NZ, which starred her now-fiancé.

After weeks of choosing between women, Franich was eventually paired with Viarni Bright in mid-2017. The two dated for five months before calling it quits.
