This Woman with Down Syndrome's Reaction to Her Boyfriend Giving Her a Promise Ring Is Amazing

Woman with Down Syndrome's Reaction to Her Boyfriend Giving Her a Promise Ring

In the latest viral video that has stolen our hearts, Ashley Greenhalgh, a woman born with Down Syndrome, was taken by complete surprise when her boyfriend (who was also born with Down Syndrome) presented her with a beautiful diamond promise ring at her 21st birthday/high school graduation celebration. Ashley's sister, Courtney, posted the joyous video on Facebook urging friends to share the adorableness on their own timelines in the hope that her sis' reaction would go viral. And after watching the vid ourselves, it's no surprise that her excitement and squeals have since touched the hearts of hundreds of thousands of people across the globe. Courtney explains in the post:

"On Saturday, June 25th, my family held a luncheon with our closest relatives and friends to celebrate my sister, Ashley's, 21st birthday and high school reunion. Among the crowd was my sister's boyfriend, Danny...not only do they both share an unconditional love for one another, they show a genuine app reaction for life on a daily basis. Danny and my sister have been dating for two years and couldn't be more perfect for each other...[they've] talked about getting married in the future; while they know that the timing isn't right just yet, Danny wanted to go out of his way to let my sister know that he will always be there for her and that he only has eyes for her. Danny saved up his own money from his job to get my sister a diamond promise ring. The presentation of the ring takes this thoughtful gift to a whole new level."

In the video, it's apparent the birthday girl absolutely loves the two cards and plush teddy bear given to her by her beau, but nothing compares to the moment she realizes Danny bought her a ring. She squeals, "It's a ring! I'm going to be married!" He even kneels to the ground to ask if she'll be with him forever and if she'll be his wife. According to, they have plans to wed in about 4 years, when Danny feels as though he's more financially secure for a family.
