The chap said he wanted to surprise his lady with a ring to seal their undying love for each other. He's clearly a romantic at heart.
He then concocted the perfect plan and popped the question during Grace’s birthday celebration.
Grace, who was caught unawares, first thought she was just going home to pick a bottle of water when she met her friends and family all waiting for her.
“I remember asking him what plans he had for my birthday and he said he had none since it would fall on a Monday. My sister-in-law told me we would go for a meal of roasted meat,” the bride to be said.
That was not all. The beauty found a box on the table and when she opened it the cake read ‘will you marry me?’

Soaked in tears, Grace turned to her love-struck man who just stared at her and tried to comfort the sobbing beauty.
Bernard then took out a ring, got on one knee and asked his damsel if she could be his for the rest of his life.
“Yes,” Grace answered as she fought back tears.
“You have been there for me from the beginning and you have accepted me for who I am,” Bernard said.
The pair met on a dating site after Grace decided to find a man who was HIV positive just like her.
“I chose him over other men who even came from the US,” Grace said.
What a sweet love story!
