Time, money and energy are often spent on creating a proposal that will live long in the memory.
And one dad from Leeds came up with something truly spectacular while in Pinderfields Hospital with his partner, Emily Barker, who was giving birth tot heir first child.
Romantic Aaron Broadhead, popped the question just minutes after first child Skyler-Grace was born, on Wednesday 15 August, on the labour ward at Pinderfields, in the most heartwarming way.
Skyler-Grace, weighing 6Ib 9oz, was briefly taken away from her mum to be washed and dressed, and Aaron took the opportunity to slip his daughter into a baby-grow emblazoned with the words: "Mummy will you marry Daddy?".
Skyler-Grace was then handed back to her ecstatic mother Emily who said yes.
Emily said: “It was the happiest day of my life – I couldn’t believe it! It made Skyler-Grace’s birth extra special!”
Sarah Brennan, Senior Sister and Labour Ward Manager, at Pinderfields Hospital said: “It was a lovely moment, all the staff were overwhelmed! It’s the first marriage proposal we have seen here on the Labour Ward at Pinderfields."
