Peter Facinelli and Jaimie Alexander
Clouds, the cold, poor visibility – everything that could have gone wrong for the Twilight star as he prepared to pop the question pretty much did.
Peter had planned to propose with a message flying from the back of a plane, but then the weather happened…
“We were at the top of the Empire State Building, I had it planned, she [Jaimie] didn’t know,” the actor told People.
“At 3:55 she was like, ‘I’m cold, I’m going to go inside’,” he continued. “And then all of a sudden I look up when she went in and the plane was there!
“I had binoculars and I looked up and I saw a helicopter, and I looked and couldn’t find [the plane] because I was nervous that it had left, and then I gave the binoculars to her and she goes, ‘Yeah, it’s right there,’ and then she read the banner, so it worked out,” he added.
He then revealed that he tried to get down on one knee, but his jeans were a bit too tight.
“I had just bought these new jeans and they were a little tight,” he added, “so I said, ‘my jeans are tight but I’ll try to get down on one knee’.”
We’re sure we’ve seen this in a rom com before…
