A curious hippo at the Cincinnati city zoo photobombed the moment a man proposed to his girlfriend in an image that’s already going viral across the Internet.
Nick Kelble took his bride-to-be Hayley Roll to the zoo last month to visit their favorite attraction -Fiona the hippo- hoping to make a memory that would stay with the couple forever.
Near the exhibit, where the two frequently came to visit the semi-aquatic mammal, Kelble got on one knee to pop the big question.

Nick Kelble popped the big question to his girlfriend Haley Roll and got a bit of a surprise when Fiona the hippo popped into the camera shot
‘We went to the zoo for our one-year anniversary and Fiona was in the window,’ Roll told The Daily Buzz online publication.
The couple said that they plan to get married next year after they graduate
‘Nick, my boyfriend and I were waiting in line to get our photo taken with Fiona and I gave my cell phone to someone to take the photo and when I turned back around, Nick was on one knee proposing.’
As Kelble was laying his heart on the line, Fiona decided it would be the perfect moment to check out the action.
‘We’re so happy Fiona could be there on our special day here’s to many more years of going to zoos with you,’ Roll wrote on Instagram.
Roll, a recent graduate at Bowling Green State University and radiology tech at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital, said the couple will wait until next year to officially tie the knot.
