Miranda Lambert says 'yes' to fan proposal
Miranda Lambert has got "engaged" - to a six-year-old fan.
The 32-year-old singer - who divorced Blake Shelton last year after four years of marriage - was thrilled to receive a proposal from a young supporter and promised they can tie the knot, but not for several years.
Speaking to the audience at the MetLife Stadium in New Jersey on Saturday (20.08.16), Miranda said: "I forgot to tell you something really important. I got engaged today! There's a little 6-year-old boy here named Sebastian. He asked me to marry him. I said yes, in 25 years."
And Miranda - who was performing as support act for headliner Kenny Chesney - showed off the pink ring "gentleman" Sebastian had given her when he popped the question.
The 'Vice' hitmaker said: "Look at this beautiful ring! He got on one knee. He was such a gentleman. It may be my favourite proposal ever."
The next day, Miranda, who is dating Anderson East, uploaded two photos taken during Sebastian's proposal to fans on Instagram.
She added the caption: "I said YES! But he has to wait 25 years. This sweet boy Sebastian is a little gentleman."
Sebastian had got into the meet-and-greet session with his idol after spotting fan Sarah Goddard, who was wearing a sticker to grant her access to see the country singer, and asking her to propose on his behalf - but she went one better and brought him into the room with her.
Sarah explained to People magazine: "I told his mom he could come in with me 'as my son' so he could propose to Miranda himself.
"He bought the ring himself ... his mom said he's been holding on to it since Christmas, waiting for an opportunity to propose to Miranda."
Sarah shared her involvement in the proposal on her Instagram, sharing a picture of the ring with the captions: "I made Sebastian's dream come true, he is the sweetest. He even practiced his proposal with me @mirandalambert
"Can't believe Miranda just acknowledged Sebastian the 6yr old boy I got a M&G who proposed to her with a pretty pink ring @mirandalambert."
She also uploaded a video with the caption: "The moment when Miranda tells the entire stadium about Sebastian's proposal. He is such a sweet boy."
