An unlucky boyfriend accidentally tripped up a little girl as he got down on one knee to propose.
While Ben and Ali walked around the Dallas Arboretum, Texas, on October 21 together, the 20-year-old boyfriend decided to surprise his beloved.
Getting down on one knee, Ali, 19, looks stunned, but not as surprised as a passing girl who didn’t see Ben’s foot in her way.
Stumbling over the obstacle, the girl dropped the pumpkins she was carrying as Ben looks completely mortified at his mistake.
Ben’s best friend Tanner Johnson, who filmed the proposal, said: “Fortunately, the little girl was okay, she was just embarrassed.
“The mom actually got onto her for ‘ruining the moment’ once she realised what was happening.
“It was a last-minute plan, as Ben got the ring back in August but has held on to it until now.
“He wanted to wait until she wasn’t expecting it.
“They have been together since around January and met through Twitter.
“He’s one of my best friends and his now fiancée introduced me to her best friend and now we are together too.”
