We love a good proposal.

From marching bands to messages in the sand, there are hundreds of ways to pop that special question.

But for one couple, things were a little bit more special, as that proposal was one of the first things the bride-to-be had ever heard.

Andrea Diaz had been deaf her entire life, but thanks to be beauty of cochlear implants, she was finally able to hear for the first time.

After her doctor turned the implant on and did some initial tests, her boyfriend Kevin waited patiently for his moment.

Getting down on one knee, Kevin asked: “Can you hear me?” before launching into the big question.

“I love you so much and you’re my best friend, baby.

“I wanted to make one of the first things that you hear me asking you to marry me.”

Andrea was in tears as she said yes almost immediately and hugged her husband to be.

Isn’t that beautiful?
