Australian Sea Lion Helps Couple Get Engaged

A Queensland couple got engaged with the help of a sea lion named April, who surprised the bride-to-be at an aquarium on November 12.

In footage released by SEA LIFE Sunshine Coast Aquarium, Karl proposes to his girlfriend Melanie, who thought the couple were just volunteering for a presentation.

The video shows April delivering a message in a bottle to the unsuspecting Melanie, who opens it to read the words: “Will you marry me?” Karl then gets down on one knee to present Melanie with a ring.

“The team at Sunshine Coast Aquarium were very happy to be able to give this newly engaged couple their ‘seal’ of approval,” a representative for the aquarium said. Credit: Sunshine Coast Aquarium via Storyful
