Academy Award-winning actor Tom Hanks spread some joy by helping a couple get engaged at the Texas Book Festival in Austin on Saturday. He was at a talk about his new book, Uncommon Type: Some Stories, and at the end of the event, had a question-and-answer session. During the session, a man proposed to his unsuspecting girlfriend, Nikki Young, reported EOnline.com.
Hanks read out a question from a man named Ryan McFarling, “Here’s Ryan’s question, and it’s for Nikki Young... Nikki, will you marry me?” Hanks brought the pair onstage and Ryan proposed to his girlfriend in front of the audience. Nikki said yes! The couple then took photos with Hanks.
