She may have forecast stormy weather but the outlook certainly appears bright for weather girl Kim Perez.
The unsuspecting presenter was describing rainfall in South Florida on the US Weather Channel when her boyfriend walked in front of the camera and proposed. Policeman Marty Cunningham had clearly prepared for the moment which was accompanied by a soundtrack of tear-jerkers.
As he got down on one knee, the words ‘Will you marry me?’ appeared in a heart in place of the America weather map. The beaming police sergeant said: ‘We’ve been talking about this for a long time. And I love you and I want to spend the rest of my life with you. So I’m asking you today, will you please marry me?’
Miss Perez immediately threw her arms around her boyfriend and said: ‘I will,’ before adding ‘You got me’ and ‘You make me so happy.’ The unconventional proposal has been viewed by hundreds and become an internet favourite.
Miss Perez worked as a weather forecaster in the Air Force before joining the Weather Channel.
