It’s not everyday you get one of the most famous actors in the world to help with a proposal, but that’s exactly what happened to one love-struck man in Texas.


Oscar-winning actor and author Tom Hanks was at the Texas Book Festival over the weekend answering questions about his new book Uncommon Type: Some Stories when he announced he was bored of taking questions and wanted to ask the audience one of his own.


That’s when Hanks pulled out a piece of paper and said a man in the audience, Ryan McFarlane, had a question for a woman named Nikki Young. Hanks said the question was: “Nikki, will you marry me?”

The couple went on stage, Ryan proposed on bended knee and fortunately Nikki said yes!
