The world certainly does not have a shortage of adorable / heartwarming / otherwise emotionally engaging ~viral~ content. Between all of us and the cameras on our phones, basically everything occurring between 10 feet below sea level and 22,000 above is being recorded. If anyone does anything adorable, it’s up on YouTube within half an hour. If someone is loudly racist on a bus, there will swiftly be a Facebook video to which people with profile pictures that are cars can respond “Oh, suddenly it’s ‘racist’ to be ‘racist’ now???“.

What I’m saying is: there’s no point doing articles about just any viral content because the whole internet is viral content. Every day there’s ten thousand pieces of incredible new footage that get two million shares within hours. It takes something really special. It takes, for instance, this couple captured on video after unknowingly both secretly planning to propose to each other.

As CBS News is reporting, Tennessee couple Becky McCabe and Jessa Gillaspie were visiting Memphis Zoo with some friends on Friday when McCabe very smoothly arranged a moment to make her proposal. McCabe and Gillaspie had had their first ever date at the zoo (already very cute), and McCabe had asked one of her friends to ‘take a candid photo’ of the couple together – in reality, the friend was filming the moment McCabe surprised Gillaspie by pulling out a ring and dropping to one knee.

Instead of saying yes – as the level of excitement on Gillaspie’s face might have indicated she would – she begins began around in her bag, only to reveal that she too had brought an engagement ring so she could propose. If this was any gayer my little queer heart would surely explode.

In the video’s caption, Gillaspie seems just a little bit thrilled:

I had no idea she planned to propose, and she had no idea I planned to propose to her! We were both so surprised!!!! We were surrounded by our friends and had the most amazing night. I am the luckiest girl in the world to be able to call her my fiancée. We had no idea this would blow up so quickly! But I can’t say I’m not thrilled, because all I’ve ever wanted was for Beck and the world to know how much l love her.

How unbelievably lovely is that. You can watch the video right bloody here:

I’ve honestly watched this like five times and only gotten more emotional every time.
