Nicholas Webb popped the question on Monday, at his graduation ceremony. Fellow graduates held up cards containing letters that read ‘Melissa Will You Marry Me?’

His girlfriend Melissa Collado said yes.

“For it to happen now I’m like ‘ok’ I had no idea. No idea,” she said.

Webb said that Collado deserved the proposal.

“She supported me the whole way. She deserves it,” he said.
