It wasn't all bad

Memphis couple surprise each other with a double proposal

For their first date, Jessa Gillaspie and Becky McCabe went to the Memphis Zoo, and when Gillaspie decided to propose, she thought it would be the perfect place to pop the question.

She did not know that McCabe had the same idea, and last week, after she got down on one knee, Gillaspie was shocked when McCabe started to laugh and pulled out a ring box from her backpack. "I had no idea she planned to propose, and she had no idea I planned to propose to her," Gillaspie wrote on Facebook. "We were both so surprised!"

Gillaspie shared video of the double proposal online, and it was quickly shared thousands of times. In an update, Gillaspie said she was thrilled at how widely their story was shared, because "all I've ever wanted was for Beck and the world to know how much I love her." The couple plans on getting married next summer. Catherine Garcia
