Who doesn’t love a spontaneous festive proposal?! No one, that’s who!
So, massive props to Jonathan Carroll for making our day and indulging our romantic side by proposing to his girlfriend at Dublin airport.
Jonathan is currently living in the US and in a very happy relationship with his American girlfriend Mary Francis Turner.
The pair are so happy in fact, that Jonathan decided to ask the lovely Mary to be his wife live on Ryan Tubridy’s 2fm show which was being recorded in the airport!
Upon arriving in Dublin to visit her other half’s family for the festive season, Mary was met by Jonathan who got down on one knee and said: “Mary, I love you so much and it would mean the world to me if you would marry me.” Stop, we can’t cope!
Organised Jonathan had even done the traditional thing and asked Mary’s mother’s permission before the big proposal.
An overjoyed Mary said she was ‘overwhelmed’ and her shocked initial response to the big question was: “No. I mean yeah!”
We think there’ll be some serious celebrating in the Carroll household tonight!
