She pulled the swan in, opened the box and I said actually 'that’s not for you,it’s for me.'"

Hecontinued, “And I opened the box and the ring was inside. And then I said 'willyou marry me?' Then she started crying and doing crazy sounds and then I askedagain and she started crying and doing crazy sounds. And I asked a third timeand I said, ‘Ok this is really uncomfortable.’”
