Sports legends Chris Evert and Greg Norman are engaged, they told the press at a golf tournament in South Africa on Friday.

The couple got engaged last Sunday while traveling to South Africa from the U.S., Evert, 52, revealed to reporters while announcing a new tennis center she is building, according to Reuters.

Asked about wedding plans, she said, “Well, it is an engagement ring. … We don’t know when and where we’ll be married though.”

Norman, 52, declined to add anything extra, leading Evert to joke, “Why don’t you say something to them? Gee, you’re a big chicken!”

Evert, a former tennis champion, and Norman, a top pro golfer, both split from their spouses in the past year – Evert from her husband of 18 years, skiing champ Andy Mill, and Norman from his wife of 25 years, Laura.
