Tom Hanks Helps A Man Pull Off A Surprise Proposal At Book Festival


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.
