A beautiful same-sex wedding proposal has gone viral on TikTok and Twitter for all the right reasons.

It took place during a women’s softball match in Perth, Australia. One of the players appears to suffer an injury while batting and falls to the ground. Concerned players and a coach approach her to see what’s wrong.

Then the woman’s girlfriend runs onto the pitch to check she’s OK. At that point, the supposedly injured woman struggles to one knee, before whipping out a ring.

The couple has been identified as Sara Riou (the softball player) and partner Jacinta Comande. It was Jacinta who posted the video to TikTok.

Jacinta called it, “the most epic proposal I could of ever dreamt of.” At the time of writing, it’s had over 1.7million views on TikTok and almost 15,000 comments. One comment, praising it as, “the most lesbian proposal ever”, has had over 130,000 likes.

Jacinta posted a second video answering some of the questions she’d received. She said “Both of our families and closest friends were there,” and “The catcher from the red team is my best friend.” The coach was also aware of what was going on.

She said she had no idea about the plan. Jacinta later found out Sara had asked her dad’s blessing before proposing to his daughter.

After the proposal, the game continued as normal.
