When Zack and Dione were recently planning to appear on TV with Steve Harvey, only one of them was aware of what was indeed going to happen.

What's better is that he did not only know, he beautifully prepared to make it happen.

Dione and Zack have been friends for 5 years and are really close; so, when Dione was to go speak about her business on Steve Harvey's TV show, she could not think of anyone else to accompany her but him.

However, before she even gets to talk about the business they've come for, Steve Harvey reveals to her that her friend has something to say to her.

Then Zack leads her to a part of the studio and delves into what will now go down in the history of proposals as one of the best ever.

“Our friendship means more to me than words can really express,” he began.

"I’ve seen you grow, I’ve seen you develop into this awesome individual, I’ve seen you develop this passion that you have for the young people; and even [with] you kids, I think you are an awesome mother.

"So we have come to the show, you know, to talk about the business [but] there are some other things I’d like to share with you.

"I remember Angel  [One of Dione's kids, we guess] at the camp saying ‘oh, maybe you should hook with my mom,’ and our circumstances at the time will not allow us entertain anything more than what we are developing, and that’s our great friendship."

At this point, Dione was pretty much blushing, smiling shyly and nodding at the same time.

"That’s the past and our circumstances and situation has changed," Zack pressed on.

"So in this new season, I didn’t bring you on the show just to talk about your business. I brought you on the show to tell you that I’m crazy in love with you; that I love you far beyond our friendship, Dione.

"I don’t wanna be your friend anymore, I want to be your friend and much more.

"Dione, I want to be your protector, I want to be your provider, I wanna show our 3 boys, if you’ll have me, I wanna show them how to love a woman, I want to give them an example of what it is to love a woman, I want to teach them how to be there, how a man takes care of the house, how to cut the yard.

"I want to show them things we do as men, but most of all, I want to love you properly. And be that example for them.

"So instead of just talking about it, I came here today to be about it."

Really, at this point, as you’ll see in the video below, Dione was pretty close to emotional tears. Who wouldn’t be?

"I love you beyond measure, I want to give my all to you, and I ask that you do the same, Dione.

"So I brought you here today…"

Then, Zack did the magical thing – reaches into his inner chest pocket, goes on a bent knee, and whips out the wedding band, as Dione gasps in an expression of sweet surprise.

The crowd was wild with applause and screams at this point, Dione was all smiles, as she interjected with surprised sentences such as “oh my God” and  “are you serious?”

Then, all the noise and happy exclamations ceased, as Zack, with that look in eyes, popped the question,

“Dione McDurfin, will you marry me”

“Oh my God, yes,” she responded, and the studio erupted again.

“I’m so glad you said yes,” said Harvey to Dione after the couple shared a very tight embrace and the studio was quiet again.

He also mentioned to Zack how terrific his speech was and we totally agree with him.

The actual date of the proposal is unknown, but the video was posted on Steve Harvey's YouTube channel on September 23rd, 2016.

That speech, and the actual proposal that followed were just beautiful; and this, right here, is the stuff fairy tales are made of.

What do you think of public marriage proposals?»
