A man thought he planned the perfect proposal, but he didn’t count on it being upstaged by a photo-bombing stingray.
The hilarious snaps of the moment, at the Ripley’s Aquarium in Toronto, Canada, were uploaded to Reddit by McYay.
She was pretty bemused that their special moment was outshone by the stringray.
“We were watching the stingray feeding and at the end of the ‘Ray bay’ show the host asked for two volunteers to play a game and they picked us to go up … which I thought was weird because it was Family Day (think 1000 children in the place),” she wrote.
“My boyfriend puts his hand up and we get picked, the game is for him to try describing a stingray and me try to guess what type. As he is describing to me ‘it has a tail’ and ‘it’s grey’ I’m thinking I am so embarrassed and this is definitely some sort of prank on me because people in the audience are giggling and gasping.
“The hosts asks me for my answer and I blurt out the name of the only stingray from the show I can remember which is a Roughtail stingray. Host lady says I can turn around and see for myself and tadaaaa. Obviously spend the next 10 minutes crying and laughing at the same time.”
The stingray managed to get in every single picture of the moment, covering the sign that said, “Will you marry me?”
We never knew stingrays were such limelight hogs…
