Maura Higgins has had a flock of men propose to her at events and on social media after she was famed for talking about sex on 'Love Island'
Maura Higgins has admitted she gets marriage proposals "all the time".
The 30-year-old reality star – who is in a relationship with Chris Taylor – has had a flock of men dropping on one knee to ask for her hand in marriage despite having never met them before.
She told the Daily Star newspaper: "I get marriage proposals all the time. It happens a lot. It's quite crazy. There was a time when I was doing promotion for a drinks brand and a guy came over and proposed at an event.
"He actually had a ring in a box. I'd never met him before, so I was thinking, 'What the hell is going on?'
The majority of her proposals come from men online but the 'Love Island' star insisted she would never accept any kind of invitation over social media as she prefers to meet someone "organically".
She explained: "The proposals are usually online. I don't reply to them. It isn't really worth them asking that way to be honest because I could never meet someone through social media.
"I'd always want to meet someone organically. So no matter who has messaged me that way, I was never going to meet them."
However, Maura believes men fall at her feet after she showed her true personality on the ITV2 dating show in 2019 where she was frank about her sex life.
She added: "I was myself on 'Love Island' and I think that's really important. If you are yourself then you aren't going to have regrets. I didn't think about what people's perception of me was going to be. I just went in there, I was myself and I owned it."
Meanwhile, the Irish beauty recently confirmed her relationship with fellow Islander Chris, with Maura posting a loved-up image of them on her Instagram account.
The brunette beauty captioned the snap: "He’s mine [love-heart emoji] @christophertaylorofficial (sic)"
Chris posted the same image on his Instagram.
Alongside the photograph, he wrote: "Turns out I fell in love with my best mate @maurahiggins [love-heart emoji] (sic)"
