Last night, director Glenn Wiess won not just only an Emmy but also a fiancee at the 70th Primetime Emmy Awards ceremony.
According to Fox News, Weiss won for best directing for a variety special and during his live acceptance speech, he took the opportunity to propose to his girlfriend Jan Svendsen.
“You wonder why I don’t like to call you my girlfriend because I want to call you my wife,” Weiss said in front of a very shocked audience. And the camera quickly panned to Svendsen who looked visibly stunned.
“I didn’t ask yet,” Weiss said before inviting Svendsen onstage. And when she got on the stage, he continued, “This is the ring that my dad put on my mom’s finger 67 years ago. To my sisters and brothers, I didn’t swipe it, dad knows I have it.”
“Jan, I want to put this ring that my mom wore on your finger,” he said before getting down on one knee and asking, “Will you marry me?”
Svendsen quickly said yes in the unexpected moment during the show.
And the audience erupted in cheers.
Love always wins the show!
