They say in showbiz, ‘never work with children or animals.’
That sounds right, especially in this Aussie couple’s situation when they were just about to get engaged, and a child dropped the engagement ring into the ocean.
A viral TikTok video showed that an Australian couple was about to have the moment of their lives as Luke was just about to propose to his girlfriend Stephanie when Stephanie’s two years old daughter accidentally dropped the ring into the water.
“As Luke got down on one knee, Stephanie’s daughter Harper reached out to grab the ring but dropped it on the decking—which happened to have gaps in it.” Reported Newsweek.
“Had to tell Harpie that it was kissed by the fish and mermaids for good luck.”
When Harpie dropped the ring on the deck, having small gaps in it, the ring fell into the sea, and everyone present at the spot started looking for it.
The video received almost 13 million views on TikTok with 1.7 million likes and 19K comments.
“That’s why I avoid adding kids in situations like this,” a user wrote under Stephanie’s video.
“Note to self: don’t propose on a floor with crevices that will swallow your ring,” another commented.
“According to the couple, the water in Hervey Bay in Queensland is clear, meaning the ring could still be seen. Luke was able to track down and grab the jewelry, which now sits on Stephanie’s finger.” Wrote Newsweek.
“We just moved on and laughed about it. It wasn’t Harper’s fault at all. She’s a helpful little girl, and everybody’s like, ‘Why would you do it with a kid around?’ Luke wanted to essentially ask Harper as well,” the duo explained in a follow-up video.
“If you ask about my advice for proposing near a body of water with a ring?” Said Luke. “Tie a string and get some fishing line.”
