Damian and his new bride Domenica de Allende got engaged in December 2022. The longterm couple have been together for four years (since 2019), the Citizen reported. When he proposed to Domenica, Damian reportedly surprised the official Springbok WAG with a romantic beachfront proposal.

Domenica was said to have been pregnant with her and Damian’s second child, Alessia at the time of the proposal. However, their firstborn, Gabriel was front and centre when his father got down on one knee to ask for Domenica’s hand in marriage.
