A source told The Sun newspaper: "They're over the moon. Marcus has been planning this for a while and wanted to make it special.
"They went out in LA for a romantic night together on Tuesday and he proposed. It was extremely romantic.
"They celebrated afterwards with a group of close friends - including his Manchester United teammate Jesse Lingard."
According to the publication, England forward Marcus, 24, and Lucia, 24, dined at seafood restaurant Catch LA in Los Angeles before he popped the question back at their villa.
A source added: "All involved are thrilled at the recent news of the engagement.
"Lucia has been a big part of Marcus' life since school, offering stability, a sense of belonging, a relatability, and assurance, that can be rare to find in this world.
"This is a very special, welcomed, moment for them both and everyone wished them nothing but the best."
As well as making back page headlines for his football abilities, Rashford has also been on the front pages for his campaign to end child food poverty in the UK, and he received an MBE in the Queen's Birthday Honours List for 2020.
