Charly Defrancesco and Marc Jacobs attend the 2017 WSJ Innovator Awards at Museum of Modern Art on Nov. 1, 2017 in New York City. 

The last place anyone would expect to be proposed to is in the middle of a Chipotle Mexican Grill, especially when you are dating a world-famous fashion designer like Marc Jacobs. But even over a burrito bowl, love finds a way.

In an Instagram video shared late last night, Jacobs is shown proposing to his boyfriend, underwear model Charly Defrancesco. The two were ostensibly just going to grab a bite to eat at the Mexican chain restaurant, when a flash mob appeared and performed in front of the couple to Prince’s iconic “Kiss.”

"And this happened...'Charly Defrancesco will you marry me'?" the fashion designer wrote. "THANK YOU everyone for making this happen video [sic]." 

Defrancesco was clearly none the wiser -- as soon as he was finished filming the flash mob, he turned around to see Jacobs on one knee, with a ring produced. After a moment of shock, he said yes, and the two shared their first meal as an engaged couple.
