Lorde says something special happened when she visited Niagara Falls with her parents yesterday.

The Kiwi pop star tweeted that, after nearly 30 years together, her dad Vic O'Connor proposed to her mum Sonja Yelich with a diamond ring.

And in a follow-up tweet, referring to her famous line in Royals about having never seen a diamond in the flesh, Lorde wrote: "Inevitable response [...] yes i know i have seen a diamond now."

Yelich is often seen on tour with Lorde, but her dad rarely travels with her. Yelich and O'Connor have four children together.

Lorde recently performed in the UK but had been in Toronto, Canada, for the MuchMusic Video Awards.
