We have all seen those amazing, heartwarming marriage proposals everywhere, but I doubt you’ve seen something like this before.
Twenty-four-years old Vegas man Nick Janevski, recently proposed to his girlfriend Austin McMillan, also 24… in front of Celine Dion!
McMillan has always been a huge Dion fan. Speaking to BuzzFeed News, she explained: “My mom raised me on Celine because she’s a huge Celine Dion fan.”
With his girlfriend being a massive fan of Celine Dion, Janevski made sure that My Heart Will Go On was always playing on the radio whenever he would pick up McMillan.
When Janevski was offered the one-time opportunity to meet the singer face-to-face, he decided to make things even more special.
How did he do that, you may ask? Well, he proposed to Austin right in front of Celine Dion.
As Nick used to be a personal trainer for the Canadian singer’s manager, he used this connection to organize a meet-up with Dion and brought his girlfriend along with him.
After they posed for a photo with Dion, Janevski surprised both McMillan and Dion by going down on one knee and proposing to his girlfriend. He had spent months planning the proposal, including contacting Dion’s team to make sure he and his girlfriend would be last in line, meaning they’d have the room (and Celine) all to themselves.
McMillan described the moment to Buzzfeed news: “I didn’t even say yes… for like two whole minutes I was just shocked. I just looked at Celine Dion and then we both looked at him… I just kissed him.”
According to McMillan, Dion told the couple: “I hope you have a long and happy marriage, just like I did with my husband.” Dion’s husband, René Angélil, died last year after a long battle with cancer, which might help explain her incredibly emotional reaction to the proposal.
Taking to Instagram, McMillan wrote: “There are no words to describe this moment! what i thought was just going to be a special night seeing my favorite performer turned out to be a night filled with so much happiness, surprise & celebration with everyone we love & even ended with donuts and ice cream so idk how it could get better!”
The best part about this whole event was Celine Dion’s reaction. Have you ever seen such a wonderful combination of shock, happiness and confusion at the same time on someone’s face?
The followers’ reactions were also something to behold.
One person said ‘How cute! Congrats!!!’
Another one commented ‘No but those pictures are priceless! Her face!!!!’ – Good point there, my friend.
General consensus is that all the users were in awe of how cute and amazing this proposal was, and everyone also seemed to giggle at Celine Dion’s reaction. With all due respect to Celine, we can’t blame them.
McMillan also said that Dion’s even asked if she can get an invite to the wedding.
Good luck to Nick and Austin in their marriage! Till then I wish I have a chance to propose to my partner like this.
