Scotland's First Minister Helped a Man Propose to his Boyfriend

Aug 26, 2015

Nicola Sturgeon took a break from being Scotland's First Minister by helping a man named Paul propose to his boyfriend, Ian, during a public meeting in the Scottish town of Oban.

The proposal, which was documented on her Twitter account, shows Sturgeon popping the question on the behalf of Paul, who was bent down on one knee.

Thankfully for all, a happy-looking Ian said yes, prompting Sturgeon to offer her congratulations to the couple.

On Wednesday, Sturgeon retweeted a picture of Ian's engagement ring to her 200,000 followers.
