Dad Enlists Newborn Son to Help Propose

Marriage proposals can be a great opportunity to use your imagination. Hiding the ring in a piece of cake, putting it in a glass of champagne, custom crosswords, a radio announcement, proposing in public on one knee, even an elaborate proposal themed after a movie–the options are nearly endless.

But what about using a baby to ask his mother? That would be pretty unique.

Well, that is what a young Australian father has done.

Paudie Kelleher and Lisa Keogh welcomed their little bundle of joy, Conan Patrick Kelleher, weighing 9 pounds and 7 ounces, on September 5th at a Sydney hospital. But Paudie decided to make his son’s birth a double celebration. After the baby was washed, Paudie put on a custom-made onesie on his newborn son with the all-important question emblazoned across the cute kid’s torso: “Will you marry my daddy?”


And when the baby boy was taken back to his mother, an obviously ecstatic Lisa said YES.

Lisa took to Facebook to share this unique marriage proposal that she received from Paudie along with the adorable kid’s picture sporting the onesie.

Along with a picture of her son Conan, Lisa wrote, ‘What an amazing day gave birth to our beautiful baby boy Conan Patrick Kelleher 9lbs & 7oz & to top it all of Paudie proposed happiest day of my life.’

So cute!
