SO sweet! Even better, Ashley’s heartwarming reaction was caught on video — and we DARE you to watch without cracking a huge smile!
“It’s a ring! I’m going to be married!” Ashley gushed as she unwrapped Danny’s birthday/graduation gift. Danny then immediately dropped to one knee and said, “Will you marry me? Will you be my wife?” Now if that’s not an insanely cute proposal, then we don’t know what is!
In the vid, Ashley clasps her hands to her face and cheers while Danny proposes and Danny has the BIGGEST smile on his face — aw! And even more impressive, the young man, who also has Down Syndrome, saved up money from work to buy the diamond promise ring. And although they don’t plan on getting married just YET, Ashley’s sister, Courtney, explained that Danny wanted to prove he’ll always be there for her, according to Daily Mail.
“Danny and Ashley talk about getting married in the future; while they know that the timing isn’t right just yet, Danny wanted to go out of his way to let my sister know that he will always be there for her and that he only has eyes for her,” Courtney dished. Is it just us or is your heart totally melting right now too?
Courtney added that the couple plan on marrying in four years. “They take the concept of marriage seriously and realize that they need to be able to financially support themselves to make their dream a reality, she said. “They are only 21, too, so they’re being very mature and giving their relationship time to blossom.”
And as for the viral video Courtney shot? “It’s too precious not to share,” she said. And we couldn’t agree more! We wish Ashley and Danny all the best and are so excited for them to tie the knot in a few years!
