Woman is ‘mid-chicken wing’ when she realizes friend is proposing

You can plan all you want, but you really never know what to expect when things actually play out. 

Reddit poster shared a photograph in the “Pics” forum from when he proposed to the love of his life. The couple was photo-bombed by a friend in the kitchen, who was totally caught off guard by the major moment. 

“I was SO nervous doing this making sure I got it right,” he wrote. “She’s the love of my life and I wanted to make sure it went smoothly.”

He planned to propose at a New Year’s Eve party surrounded by their closest friends because it was how his fiancee’s father proposed. 

“Our friend mid-chicken wing realizing I’m proposing to my girlfriend last night,” he captioned the image.

“We actually loved it,” the Reddit poster said in a comment
