Lady proposes to her course rep

Meanwhile, Legit.ng reported that a lady had hilariously proposed to her course rep in class.

The lady left her seat, approached the course rep where he sat and stunningly pulled the surprise.

She first stooped to his level, took his hand and slotted the ring in, quite to the amusement of the young man. Some people joked about who they thought would care for the other should they get married. Others gushed over the clip.
