This Proposal Honouring Her Late Father Will Melt Your Heart

'I'll make you proud to call me your son'


Tyler Shelton has filmed every single day of his 20s so far — including the day he proposed to Haylee Rose, his girlfriend of seven years. Though they'd been together forever, Rose's dad passed before Shelton was able to ask him permission to marry his daughter. This proposal video is Shelton's tribute to him.


He begins by calling Rose's brother  Grant. "Uh, I had a question for you. Um, I just wanted to know if you'd be cool with me asking your sister to marry me," he asks. Grant pauses and tells him he is like a brother to him: "Dad would 100 percent want you guys to get married." Are you crying yet?
Shelton calls Rose's sister next. "I'd be extremely happy," she answers. A bittersweet piano melody plays in the background as photos of Rose and her father play. Can you handle this?

Then there is the moment where he gets down on one knee and promises to love her forever. He thanks her father for giving him the most amazing woman in the world and the world subsequently melts into a puddle of happy sadness. 

"I'll make you proud to call me your son," he says.  

Are you OK? Go call your father.
