We love a good surprise engagement story. The elaborate proposal plans, the happy tears, the occasional bit of shocked profanity... We can't get enough! But there's surprising a to-be-bride with a "Will you marry me?" and a sparkly engagement ring, and then there's giving her a mild heart attack. This is definitely an example of the latter. A Louisiana man pulled off quite the shocking popped question scenario, that started with a staged robbery and ended with a just as jaw-dropping diamond ring!
Amanda Wheatley just thought she was going on a romantic dinner date with her sweetheart, Taylor Myers, according to KLFY News. But her beau had something else up his sleeve — a special sparkler, in fact, and a slightly terrifying proposal plan...
As the pair walked to a restaurant, Myers arranged to have a group of men approach them, setting the plan into motion. "What you got in your pocket?" one of the men asked the couple, as if they were about to rob them. Cue Wheatley's heart attack.
When a police officer entered the scene (don't worry, he was in on the act), the "robbers" flipped the script, telling the officer that Myers was the one starting the trouble, resulting in him forcing Myers to his knees and handcuffing him as his poor, scared girlfriend frantically tried to resolve the situation.
That's when the robbers-turned-quartet began crooning. "Look at me I'm on my knees 'cause I want to marry you. Marry you. Everything I'll ever need is right here in front me, too. Talkin' 'bout you, " they sang. Cue Wheatley's second heart attack of the day.
Still on his knees, Myers pulled out the ring and asked his still-shaking love those four little words. Despite her now-fiancé almost scaring her half to death, Wheatley immediately accepted her beau's proposal.
While the result of this to-be-groom's over-the-top proposal was as hilarious as it was heartwarming, let's just hope this happy prankster pair doesn't pull the fire alarm or stage a murder at their own wedding...
