Don’t we all love surprises? The thoughtfulness and plans that go into them just make it all the more enviable and worthwhile. Today, our excitement is off the charts and it’s all thanks to a surprise within another surprise. 😅
Gbemi was all out to celebrate the love of her life, Collins as she planned him a surprise birthday party. Unknown to her, plans to get their love to the next stage were also underway! So, on the D-day, she ended up getting surprised herself as her baby popped the big question. Of course, she said yes! Now, here we are, drooling over their love as we take in all the beauty of their #BNBling moment. The love in their eyes tells us all we need to know – the love birds are absolutely smitten.
Enjoy Gbemi and Collins’ engagement photos and their proposal story below.
Here’s how Collins popped the question:
In March of 2020, I was planning a surprise 30th birthday for Collins with his close friends and family. Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it had to be postponed to a later date. I decided to postpone the surprise party to March 2021.
Collins, however, caught wind of the surprise party and had other plans. After planning this surprise party for over a year, the day finally came! I was super excited and couldn’t wait to surprise Collins. When Collins and I arrived at the venue, as soon as we walked in everyone screamed “Surprise”.
He was shocked at what was going on – or so I thought. After the surprise, I noticed people moving around and the music started to change. That’s when I realized what was about to happen. All our loved ones, family and friends, each gave me a rose. Collins then professed his love for me and asked me to marry him.
