Former TOWIE hunk Dan Osborne has effectively turned our hearts into huge piles of melted marshmallow by revealing details of how he popped the question to fiancée Jacqueline Jossa in Greece.
SPOILER ALERT: It’s all kinds of romantic, cute and fairytale-like.
Meanwhile, we’re still waiting for our knight in shining armour to find us under a pile of biscuit crumbs and leftover Lambrini on the sofa.
Spilling all the secrets of his lovely proposal, 23-year-old Dan explained that he got down on one knee during their trip to Greece, where they were celebrating Jacqueline’s sister Katrina’s Wedding with her family and friends.
He told Now! Magazine: “I wanted to do it in front of Jacqui’s friends and family because I know how much they mean to her.”
Organising the whole thing with a bucketload of precision, Dan got Katrina to pretend the owner of their hotel had asked the group to go to the lobby for drinks, so that they’d all be there for his nerve-wracking moment.
He’d hired a sailing boat carrying a banner which read ‘Will you marry me?’ on it, which waited out of sight while everyone drank champagne by the lobby’s balcony, before Katrina asked for a group picture with their backs to the water, meaning they couldn’t see the boat coming towards them.
He continued: “Katrina had to pass the ring behind her back to me. I said: ‘Oh, look at that boat,’ and when Jacqueline turned around, I was down on one knee with the ring.
“Jacqueline didn’t realise the boat was for her. She said when she first saw it, she just thought: ‘That’s nice.’ I started to laugh nervously when I’m nervous I do this silly humming laugh and only Jacqueline knows it.
“She was so confused until she heard my laugh. She covered her face with her hands, she couldn’t believe it. She kept saying: ‘Oh my God, is this really happening?’
“She was really confused how it was possible for me to keep it all so secret from her, as she’s so good at sussing things out. My knee was hurting so much! We stood cuddling for about five minutes after that.”
We’re not crying, you are.
Dan went on to say that it all “worked out perfectly” and that his jaw was “aching” from his constant smiling, while Jacqueline was “ridiculously shocked.”
It’s like a modern day fairytale, isn’t it? Congrats again, Dan and Jacqueline!
