Superhero Street Performer Turns Out to Be Boyfriend in Disguise in Amazing Surprise Proposal

by helen@hitched

An unsuspecting film fanatic received a "Marvel-lous" surprise when her boyfriend popped the question disguised as her favourite superhero!

Louisa Hanley, 40, was shopping in Glasgow with a friend when she spotted a street performer dressed as Iron Man putting on his best superhero poses for the crowd.

But, unknown to her, underneath the costume was her partner of seven years, Daniel Kinney, waiting to deliver a surprise marriage proposal.

Watch the video to see the cute moment Daniel removes his mask and drops to one knee in front of his stunned future fiancée.

 

This magical moment proved to require more than just a trip to a fancy dress shop.

Canny Daniel roped in the help of Louisa' friend Maggie and jewellers Beaverbrooks to plan the shopping trip so she'd be in the right place at the right time.

He explained: “We’re both massive fans of the Marvel Avengers films, having recently taken our daughter Meghan to a baby screening of the latest film, and I knew I wanted our marriage proposal to be unique and different, so it seemed like the perfect idea to dress as one of our big screen heroes to ask the biggest question of our lives.

“It was incredibly nerve-wracking standing there in front of Louisa when she had absolutely no idea that it was me, let alone that the person in front of her was about to ask for her hand in marriage.

“It was such a special moment taking off the mask and seeing the shock on her face when she realised it was me all along. I’m so grateful to Beaverbrooks for helping me make my marvel-lous proposal a reality.”

Although like every good superhero movie, there was a bit of drama just before the good bit.

Louisa revealed: “I was really confused at first – I think I actually ran away when he started walking towards me! But when he got down on one knee and presented me with a beautiful engagement ring it was one of the happiest moments of my life.

"It was such an amazing surprise when he took off the mask and revealed it was actually Daniel. One minute we were shopping, the next minute I was engaged!"

Congratulations to this super pair!
