“Good Morning America” went all out for military servicemen and women on Veteran’s Day, even going as far as to have Jason Derulo sing his hit “Marry Me” so a coastguardsman could propose to his girlfriend.
Petty Officer Samuel Peikert, who was named Coastguardsman of the Year by USO, planned the big surprise for his girlfriend Jackie. Though they acted like they were there so Peikert could be honored by “GMA,” they were really there so he could pop the question. Since seemingly everyone but Jackie knew about the surprise, it still managed to come as a shock to her as Peikert got down on one knee and asked her to marry him. She, of course, said yes.
“I’m still shocked,” Jackie says after the proposal. It was then revealed that David’s Bridal will help her pick out her perfect wedding dress.
For his part, Derulo was thrilled to be involved. “She said yes,” he tweets along with a photo with the pair. “congrats again to the lovely couple.”
