Baby Hippo Fiona Perfectly Photobombs Zoo Proposal

A proposal of epic proportions … literally!

While many people call on their friends and family to be waiting in the background of a surprise proposal, Nick Kelble got an extra special guest while popping the question to his fiancé in October – Fiona, Cincinnati Zoo’s very own baby hippo.

Though Hayley Roll knew they were there to visit their favorite mammal in celebration of their one-year anniversary, what she didn’t know was that Fiona was about to make her appearance at just the right time. While Kelble got down on one knee to pop the question to Roll, baby Fiona pressed herself up against the glass, got a front row seat to the sentiments and gave the photobomb of a lifetime.

The blissful bride-to-be later posted a series of photos to her Instagram page of the happy couple and the photogenic animal captioned: “We’re so happy Fiona could be there on our special day ❤ here’s to many more years of going to zoos with you
