When I was pregnant with my son, I wanted to document every second of being with child. While it seems unnecessary now, I was adamant that I wanted to cherish each moment forever.
I took hundreds of pictures of my baby bump and updated all my family and friends as time went on.
When I was about seven months pregnant, my husband and I planned to get professional maternity photos taken. These pictures are treasured by us, and plenty of other couples feel the same way.
These images hold sentimental value, where both parents and children can look back and see where the journey of life all began.
Some people go beyond just taking snapshots, and film their experience, like YouTube vloggers Rich and Jazzy.
They film their adventures of raising their young daughter, Reign, and share their trials and tribulations of everyday life with the public.
With nearly 30,000 subscribers, viewers have been a part of every major event of the couple’s lives, including when Rich planned a surprise marriage proposal.
The adorable couple had been together for more than eight years when Rich decided to pop the question.
Nearly nine months pregnant, Jazzy decided to have a maternity photo shoot, but unbeknownst to his soon-to-be fiancee, Rich had planned to combine the event with a surprise proposal.
“So, Jasmine’s in there [getting her makeup done…] She thinks that we’re going for a maternity shoot. But, in fact, this is much bigger than that. This is actually an engagement shoot,” Rich said in the video.
“I’ve had her ring, and I’ve been trying to think of how I can give it to her, because she claims, for years now, she’s going to see it coming a mile away,” he added. “She’s going to know when I’m about to propose, and it won’t be a surprise… But I’m thinking she’s going to be pretty surprised.”
Dressed in a gorgeous open gown and dapper suit, the couple brought their toddler along to get their pictures taken in front of a waterfall.
After the family took a few snapshots, the photographers – who were in on Rich’s plan – asked Jazzy to turn around. She did so without question, not knowing the biggest surprise of her life was only a few seconds away.
When Jazzy turned around, she was stunned to see the love of her live bending on one knee with a beautiful diamond ring pointing back at her.
No doubt, Jazzy was completely stunned to see Rich finally pop the question, and remained in disbelief for an unbelievable 30 seconds before she gleefully accepted.
Fans were thrilled that the two finally got engaged and commented on the couple’s video, sending them their well-wishes.
“This is so beautiful. Jaz you looking stunning girl. Again congratulations on the proposal wish yall many blessings on blessings 💙😁,” one person wrote.
“Congratulations Jazz and Rich of your engagement and baby number 2! #weddingbliss#stayinloveforever Once again congrats and God bless you and your family and be with you,” someone else added.
“Can I like this a million times?! Darn it who is cutting onions near me!! My eyes are dripping!! That was so beautiful. I love the element of surprise. Rich you did a great job. I am so happy for the two of you. You two deserve all the happiness! Thank you for sharing. ❤❤❤,” another person wrote.
While the video clearly showcased Rich and Jazzy’s undying love for one another, people were wondering what happened after the eventful day.
Well, since their cameras are never turned off, it would only be a matter of time until viewers found out what the couple’s next development in their relationship would be.
It was only a little over a week after Rich and Jazzy posted their engagement video when they welcomed their second daughter, Royce, into the world on July 15 2017.
The adorable bundle of joy was a part of her parents’s big day when they tied the knot on Boxing Day of the same year. They spent their honeymoon in the Bahamas, and continue to share their daily lives with their fans to this day.
While the couple have an adorable engagement story, Jazzy’s not the only one who received such an unanticipated surprise.
While it’s always a joyous occasion when two couples decide to spend the rest of their lives together, it’s exciting to hear when these proposals involve our favorite stars.
One of the most recent celebrities to pledge their eternal love for their partner is fashion designer Marc Jacobs, who proposed in quite possible the best way possible.
Marc Jacobs decided to pop the question to his longtime partner, Char Defrancesco, with a surprise flash mob at Chipotle, a Mexican fast-food chain restaurant.
The dancers strutted their stuff to Prince’s song “Kiss,” before Jacobs bent down on one knee and asked Defrancesco to spend the rest of his life with him.
“Of course, the stunned entrepreneur accepted and Jacobs posted the video and captioned it: And this happened…”Charly Defrancesco will you marry me”? #flashmobatchipotle#moves THANK YOU everyone for making this happen video @plural_nyc@laurengerrie@firstname.lastname@example.org And to my Ride or Die fiancé @chardefrancesco I LOVE YOU❤️.”
Another incredibly swoon-worthy proposal comes from Joe Manganiello who asked the one and only Sofia Vergara to be his wife on Christmas Day 2014. He planned the day out to perfection, and surprised her asking for her hand in marriage in Spanish.
“I had a big speech in Spanish, and that’s what I was nervous about,” Manganiello said in an interview on Live! with Kelly and Michael. “The last thing you want to do is like mess up the Spanish on the proposal to the Colombian woman.”
“You only get one chance to do it, and if you’re gonna do it, you gotta do it right, so there’s a lot of planning that goes into it,” the Magic Mike star added.
The pair tied the knot on November 22, 2015 at The Breakers Resort in Palm Beach, Florida, in front of all their family and friends, including Reese Witherspoon, Channing Tatum, and her Modern Family co-stars.
On October 23, 2017, John Stamos announced he was set to wed his girlfriend of one year, actress Caitlin McHugh.
The Fuller House star planned one of the most memorable proposals by popping the question to his Disney-obsessed girlfriend at the happiest place on earth.
“[Disney CEO Bob Iger] happened to email me a month or so ago, and it was like, the funniest email early in the morning. It was like, ‘Hey! I follow you and Caitlin on Instagram. She’s really a Disney geek, isn’t she?'” Stamos said in an interview with PEOPLE.
“He helped me cut together a little movie of all the most romantic moments of the Disney and Pixar Animation. It was pretty special,” Stamos continued, adding the video ended with a Little Mermaid display insisting that Stamos “just ask the girl.”
The couple got married on February 1, 2018 at Little Brown Church and held their reception at in the backyard of Stamo’s home in Beverly Hills. The happy couple also announced they are expecting their first child this spring.
“My wife is sort of resting a lot right now. It’s getting close. I wake up and I’m a servant to her basically,” Stamos told Us Weekly. “She eats like a horse! She loves to eat but she’s so skinny too. She’s handling pregnancy in the most graceful way that I could’ve imagined.”
“It’s just beautiful. It’s beautiful to watch. She just kind of floats through each day. She wakes up smiling. It’s just been so beautiful, all of it! he added.
