Mark Pilgrim pops the big question on New Year’s Eve!

Radio DJ Mark Pilgrim is engaged! He proudly asked his partner, Adrienne Watkins, to marry him on New Year’s Eve.

Pilgrim was released from the hospital earlier this week after a 64-day stay that included several medical procedures. He was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer in June 2022.

The 53-year-old has been writing about and documenting his health journey on social media, and his partner, Adrienne Watkins, has stayed beside him the whole time.

Pilgrim made the exciting news public on his social media accounts by posting a photo of him holding out a ring to an elated Adrienne.

“I love you my Adrienne… ” he captioned the photo, which also included the emojis depicting a ring, champagne glasses, and a red heart.

On Thursday, he posted a photograph of himself and Adrienne with the caption:

“After 64 days, 7 procedures and losing almost 15kg, today… I go home!”

"Adrienne. My rock. By my side every single day. I love you baby. ❤️"

The 53-year-old still has to remain connected to a tube in his side, but as the caption stated, he will have a home nurse who will be taking care of him as he gradually builds his strength.

Pilgrim said that nothing compares to the healing power of being at home with family, pets, the outdoors, and his garden..

Congratulations to the happy couple!
