A marriage proposal has gone viral after the man went to incredible lengths to get the blessing of his girlfriend’s family.

Tyler Shelton, a video blogger, has been dating Haylee Rose since middle school. He wanted to propose, but he never got the chance to ask for Haylee’s father, Greg, who died in April 2015.

Shelton asked Rose’s siblings for their individual blessings and documented it in a video he dedicated to Haylee’s late father.

“Dear Greg, I’m going to marry your daughter,” Shelton says in the video. “I always thought of how I was going to ask for your blessing one day and now that day is here. I wish you were here to hand your baby girl off to me, so I promise to be more than you would ever want me to be.”

He then gets down on a knee on a street in Rome and asks Shelton to marry him.

She said yes.
