Cancel the confetti cannons: David Hasselhoff won't be shuffling down the aisle and tying the knot with girlfriend Hayley Roberts just yet.

The Hoff appeared to have popped the question to the Welsh model on top of the Sydney Harbour Bridge on Monday.

The 59-year-old actor teased fans by posting news of the romantic gesture on Twitter.

"Tried it again on top of the Sydney Harbour Bridge!" he wrote, alongside a snap of him down on bended knee in front of Roberts.

"What do you think she said!?" he added, followed by another shot of the lovebirds locking lips atop the Aussie landmark.

But he left his followers guessing over whether Roberts accepted the apparent proposal.

Roberts, 32, added to the mystery by posting a cryptic message on Twitter: ":-)))))) xxxxxxxxxxxx".

But The Hoff tells People that the proposal wasn't official.

"The truth is I'm having a fantastic time with this lovely lady but at this time we have no plans to marry," he said. "But who knows? As they say in Wales, 'Cymru Am Byth!' or Wales forever!"

Couldn't have said it better myself.

The couple has dated for nearly a year after meeting when Roberts asked for his autograph at the Britain's Got Talent auditions in Cardiff.

Hasselhoff proposed to Roberts twice last year - once in his Britain's Got Talent dressing room, and later as the pair holidayed in Cape Town - but Roberts said no.

The Hoff has previously hinted that he's ready to tie the knot again.

"I believe you should only marry people if you can't live without them," he told the Daily Mail.

"If you can live with them, live with them. Right now with Hayley things are getting better in every way.

"I've thought about the age gap and it doesn't bother me or Hayley I hope."

If he's serious about making things official, he'll have to win over his prospective mother-in-law first.

"She is saying no to his proposals," Roberts' mother told Radar Online in November.

"He keeps asking her and she likes him a lot, but she's still young."

She added: "At first I found the age difference difficult, but when you see them together they just get on really well so I don't worry so much now.

"It's more that she's young and it's a big commitment. I don't think she should jump into marriage."

The Knight Rider star was previously married to actress Catherine Hickland from 1984 to 1989. He then married Pamela Bach and had two daughters together - Taylor and Hayley - before divorcing in January 2006.
