Couple Gets Engaged at Bottom of Waterslide at Balloonfest! [EXCLUSIVE VIDEO]
Balloonfest turned out to be a good time for all, with tons of memories made — including a very special one for an El Paso couple!
Michael picked Balloonfest 2012 as the perfect time to pop the question to his girlfriend, Jeanette, pulling out the ring at the botton of one of Wet-N-Wild’s waterslides! And she said yes!
Michael told Kiss that he had been planning the proposal for a while, and he did a good job keeping it secret because Jeanette told us she had no idea it was coming.
Michael said he and Jeanette, who were celebrating their dating anniversary, were going down a waterslide together before the big moment.
“I told her, ‘Let me go down first to see if it’s safe,’ so I could wait for her at the bottom. Then when she came down the slide, I popped it open, gave her the ring, she was like, ‘Are you serious?’ And I was like, ‘Yeah, the ring’s right here.’ And she started crying and she said yes,” Michael said.
We gotta give it up to Michael for keeping the ring hidden in the pocket of his swimming trunks, where he said it stayed nice and dry.
Congrats to the happy couple! No word on whether they’ll have a Balloonfest wedding like we suggested! Check out the couple talking about the unique proposal in our exclusive video below:
