Taylor Swift fan Alyssa Read was proposed to by her boyfriend of five years at the Reputation Stadium Tour stop in Houston, T.X. on Saturday (Sept. 29), and received another surprise after the fact: a congratulations from Swift.
“CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!!!!!!!!” Swift wrote under the couple’s video on Instagram, following her words with a collection of heart, ring and lip emojis. The 28-year-old also “liked” Read’s post, which has since gone viral.
The video, which has over four million views on social media, shows Read’s boyfriend, Channing, dropping to a knee when Taylor sings, “He knelt to the ground and pulled out a ring” during her performance of “Love Story.” Read puts her hands to her face in shock as concertgoers around her scream and celebrate the engagement. The two lock lips, and Read’s fiancé slides a diamond ring on her finger before they kiss and hug more.
Watch the video and check out Swift’s reply below.
I SAID YES!!!!!!!! —-
After the best 5 years with Channing I didn’t think he could make me any happier, but last night he changed all of that. I love you more than anything in this entire world and I’m so lucky to be yours forever.
