Couple Gets Engaged As We Help "Pop The Question"

Posted: Updated:

It's a Valentines Day proposal for one local couple, part of Fox 18's Pop The Question contest.

Alex Doane decided to ask his girlfriend Megan McKnight for her hand in marriage.

While the two were enjoying their Valentine's evening at the Hotel Blackhawk, Doane's pre-taped proposal aired during American Idol.

So all in the lobby and anyone watching in the area could see.

We were also there to catch the moment she said yes!

"I'm sitting there and my heart's pounding. I'm trying not to act excited," David said. "She didn't catch on, then all a sudden during every commercial everyone would get quiet."

"Yes, I'm very happy," Megan said. "I've been waiting." 

"For a while," Alex added.

The couple is from Milan where Megan is a teacher and Alex works at MidAmerican. They're very excited about spending their lives together.
