The ring, the smiles and the kisses - Dan Osborne shares his proposal pics with Jacqueline Jossa
In case you didn’t know, Dan Osborne is one romantic guy. Not only did he pop the question to girlfriend Jacqueline Jossa two weeks ago but he also got her family, their daughter, Ella, a boat and a banner involved! Yes, really!
And the happy couple have let us in on the exciting action by sharing their gorgeous engagement pictures exclusively with Now.
We were also lucky enough to catch up with Dan soon after he’d popped the big question and guess what? He was pretty excited!
‘I’m so happy. It was unbelievable,’ he said. ‘We had such a brilliant holiday. The whole family were out in Greece for Jacqueline’s sister Katrina’s wedding, which was wonderful. And then what a way to end it!’
So, ‘How did he propose?’ we hear you ask. Well..
‘I wanted to do it in front of Jacqui’s friends and family because I know how much they mean to her,’ Dan told Now. ‘I needed to get everyone into the lobby at the same time to see the proposal, so Katrina pretended the owner of the hotel had invited everyone for drinks.
‘There was a balcony that overlooked the sea so we stood there drinking champagne. I had a huge banner made with ‘Will you marry me?’ written across it, which had been attached to a sailing boat owned by the hotel.The boat was waiting out of sight until I gave the hotel manager the thumbs-up.
‘I told Katrina to ask for a group picture so that everyone had their backs to the water, so they couldn’t see the boat coming closer and closer, and then Katrina had to pass the ring behind her back to me. I said: ‘Oh, look at that boat,’ and when Jacqueline turned around, I was down on one knee with the ring. Jacqueline didn’t realise the boat was for her. She said when she first saw it, she just thought: ‘That’s nice.’
‘I started to laugh nervously when I’m nervous I do this silly humming laugh and only Jacqueline knows it,’ Dan continued. ‘She was so confused until she heard my laugh. She covered her face with her hands she couldn’t believe it. She kept saying: ‘Oh my God, is this really happening?’ She was really confused how it was possible for me to keep it all so secret from her, as she’s so good at sussing things out. My knee was hurting so much! We stood cuddling for about five minutes after that.’
Aww, you guys!
