This lesbian couple’s simultaneous proposal is melting the internet’s heart

When it’s time to tie the knot, both partners usually can sense it. But one couple took this serendipity to the next level, with both women proposing to each other at the same time.

Last Friday, Becky McCabe and Jessa Gillaspie were visiting the Memphis Zoo, where the couple originally went on their first date. McCabe figured she’d use the opportunity to propose to Gillaspie, and she purposefully had a friend planted there to capture the moment on video when she popped the question. So when McCabe and Gillaspie went to pose to remember the day, McCabe asked Gillaspie for her hand—but then Gillaspie surprised her partner with a ring of her own.

“Oh my god!” Gillaspie squealed in the video, before she brought out her ring box, causing the couple to laugh uncontrollably before hugging one another.

The couple’s proposal has since gone viral for being hilariously touching and adorable.

At this rate, “Double Lesbian Proposal” is set to become a viral video genre of its own. Earlier this year, a lesbian couple proposed to each other while playing Pictionary, too.

McCabe and Gillaspie are incredibly grateful for all the love they’re received online. Gillaspie’s original Facebook post has over 20,000 reactions and more than 17,000 shares, with Gillaspie saying she is “the luckiest girl in the world to be able to call [McCabe] my fiancé.”

“We had no idea this would blow up so quickly!” Gillaspie wrote in an edit to the Facebook post. “But I can’t say I’m not thrilled, because all I’ve ever wanted was for Beck and the world to know how much l love her. We are overwhelmed with all of the positive responses. Really, you guys have no idea how much that means to us!”
