A woman has shared “the most epic proposal I could of ever dreamt of” which saw her now-fiancée dramatically faking an injury.
Jacinta Comande was watching a softball league match when her partner Sara Riou fell to the ground clutching her knee, pretending to be injured.
When Comande ran onto the pitch to make sure Riou was OK, Riou smoothly and seamlessly turned the fall into a kneel and proposed.
Comande said yes and the pair, from Perth, Australia, were met by applause and cheers from the other spectators.
Comande shared the incredible proposal on TikTok. Later, she posted a separate video answering some of fans’ questions about the couple – who have been together for two years – and their epic proposal.
She confirmed that the softball coach was in on the proposal, that all of their friends and family were there watching the game and that the game continued after their exciting moment.
She added that Riou asked for her father’s “blessing” before she asked her to marry her.
Comande told the Daily Mail Australia: “Sara had told me it was this huge game and that she’d invited all our friends and family down to watch. I didn’t suspect a thing, and when she went down injured I was obviously really worried about her.”
She added that she “walked back to the stands as an engaged woman” afterwards and that the team continued their match.
The couple’s “epic” proposal took place just four years after Australia voted to legalise same-sex marriage.
The Equality Campaign said when the legislation was passed in December 2017: “This bill ensures every LGBTI Australian will now be treated equally with the same dignity and respect as their fellow Australians and will be able to marry the person they love.
“To every young LGBTI Australian across the nation, today ensures there will never be a question about whether you can have the same dreams, aspirations and opportunities as your brothers, sisters and friends.
“For those who have waited months, years, or decades to finally have the chance to marry, it’s now your time.”
