When an Australian man named Terry decided it was time to pop the question to his girlfriend of over 2 years, Anna, it didn’t take him long to find the ring – she was already wearing it without knowing.
In one of the most creative proposals this year, Terry concealed the ring in a way that was so clever, Anna was wearing it for over a year and had absolutely no idea. When the big moment came to finally reveal it, she was in shock. “Wait… It’s been in there the entire time? I could have lost it, you f*****g idiot,” Anna reportedly gasped. Terry photographed the whole thing and created a heartwarming video montage of his photos on YouTube just this morning.
