US airman surprises girlfriend with proposal at cheer competition

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

A U.S. airman surprised his longtime girlfriend with an unexpected marriage proposal at a cheerleading competition in New Jersey.

First Class Michael Rice, 24, just returned home last weekend after a seven-month tour in Germany.

His girlfriend is a cheerleading coach, who was receiving an award for her dedication. As she walked to the center of a gym floor full of young cheerleaders to be recognized, Rice appeared out of the crowd holding a microphone.

A beaming smile spread across her face and the gym erupted in a chorus of ear-splitting screams as Rice got down on one knee. His girlfriend – or rather now, fiancée – burst into tears.

After a tight hug and a head over heels kiss, she gave him her answer. Yes!
