Céline Dion recently took part in a pre-concert meet-and-greet — it was just your average event, with pictures taken, autographs signed, hugs given out and loads of satisfied, squeal-y fans. But, it was also much more than that. At this particular meet-and-greet that took place on Friday at Caesar’s Palace in Vegas, there was a marriage proposal in the works, wherein the singer would be momentarily reduced to the background as the romantic moment played out before her. But because this is Céline we’re talking about, she still managed to remain the star of it all.
Nick Janevski and Austin McMillan were about to have their pictures taken with Dion when Janevski got down on one knee and popped the question. And if you wondered whether Céline was in on it, the photos speak for themselves.
when @celinedion is just as shocked as you are at your PROPOSAL !!! 💍😱💗 there are no words to describe this moment! what i thought was just going to be a special night seeing my favorite performer turned out to be a night filled with so much happiness, surprise & celebration with everyone we love & even ended with donuts and ice cream so idk how it could get better! i get to marry the man of my dreams & grow old with my best friend 👴❤️👵🏼 God’s timing is so perfect. nothing could be better than this!! #justsaidyes @weddingwire
“I didn’t even say yes … for like two whole minutes I was just shocked,” McMillan told Buzzfeed. “I just looked at Céline Dion and then we both looked at him … I just kissed him.”
According to Buzzfeed, Janevski used to be a personal trainer for Dion’s manager, which is how it all became possible. As for Céline, she couldn’t contain her reaction and basically gave Winona Ryder a run for her money in the awesome face department.
Congrats to the happy couple. Here’s hoping their marriage is filled with as much love and happiness as Céline and René‘s.
