Tom Hanks helps a man pull off a surprise marriage proposal at Texas Book Festival https://t.co/NPcV1E1BP4— Entertainment Weekly (@EW) November 6, 2017
Tom Hanks took a break from promoting his book in Austin, Texas and helped a man in the crowd propose to his girlfriend.
During a question and answer session at the Texas Book Festival about his new book, Uncommon Type: Some Stories, Hanks told the crowd he was bored of answering their questions and wanted to ask one of his own. Hanks then took out a piece of paper and announced that there was a man in the crowd who had a question for a woman in the crowd.
The question? “Nikki, will you marry me?”
The couple went onstage where the man got on one knee and presented his then girlfriend with a ring. She said yes. Another guest and the Festival itself captured the moment on camera.
After, Hanks hugged the couple and gave them his best wishes.
