On Thursday, the Frenchman posted a photo of his 25-year-old girlfriend with the news that they were hitched.
He wrote: “It’s been more than a YEAR we are together, I mean since you stole my heart.
“After the second time we see each other I told you you going to be my wife for the rest of my life.
“I can’t live without you now, even when you’re next to me I miss you!
“You think I was crazy when I asked your hand only after 3 months we meet… I wish to all the men to love their women the way I love you.
“It’s just amazing, I can’t describe it, you are my universe, my soul, my peace you make me realise being soft its strength not weakness.
“I feel more safe when you hold my hand. Happiness, it’s a choice! I choose you for the rest of my life my little mushroom.”
Fans were quick to congratulate Evra with former team-mates Karim Benzema and Rio Ferdinand showing their love in the comments section.

The defender-turned-pundit left the family home to begin working for Sky Sports in London at the start of the year.
With Sandra, Evra fathered two kids, daughter Moana and son Lenny.
His ex-wife also told SunSport in October that the United legend fathered two more kids with a doctor, Gabriella, he met in Las Vegas a number of years ago.
Patrice and Margaux regularly uploads snaps of their life together at the 39-year-old’s South London pad.
The model wrote online on Thursday: “You make me so shy!
“I pray for your happiness everyday, like the way you bring mine to me. I must be the luckiest woman alive. I love you with all my heart.”
Evra replied: “I’m the lucky one.”
