Surprise proposal – watch as this young boy’s birthday wish finally comes true.
Eamon Hall and Samantha Panetta had just finished singing happy birthday to their son, Dominic, when he told his family his birthday wish.
After telling onlookers that he wished for his mum and dad to get married, on queue Eamon dropped to his knee and asked Samantha to marry him.
Through sheer excitement, Dominic can be seen jumping in the air, ecstatic that his wish had finally come true.
His unsuspecting mum, who had spent the day preparing for her son’s seventh birthday party, was also in shock, but thankfully said yes.
The happy couple, from New Jersey, USA, are set to tie the knot on New Year’s Eve.
Eamon said: “I wanted to make sure that the proposal was something that would leave an impression and would be special moment to remember.
“Dominic had always wanted his mommy and daddy to get married, and I considered asking Sam on her birthday but I thought she may be expecting that.
“That’s when I got the idea to do it on our son’s birthday.
“All throughout the day I was so nervous, and right before we sang happy birthday I called Dominic into the bathroom and asked him what he was going to wish for after blowing his candles out.
“He told me he was going to say that he wishes me and his mom would get married, and of course that was the right answer, so I said lets go do this.
“I was so nervous but everything went perfectly and Dominic’s reaction was priceless, none of it was scripted.”
