The engagement announcement comes after Amy and Toby welcomed a baby daughter in January, named Bonnie Mae.
Speaking about the name when she announced it, Amy said: “Whenever we hypothetically talked about our family, we always said ‘our little Bonnie’. When she came, she couldn’t have been more of a Bonnie.”
Toby added that this was not the first Bonnie in the family, joking: “My parents had two King Charles spaniels and one was called Bonnie – but that had no part in it!”
Amy added: “Her middle name is Mae. We wanted something with one syllable that went with her first name and surname, Smith.”
