Man Waits Two Years To Propose With Grandma And Mom Present
A caring grandson waited for two years and the entirety of the pandemic so that his grandmother could help him collect an engagement ring and be there for his surprise proposal to his girlfriend. Scott Kinmartin, 39, is extremely close to his grandmother, Janet Michels, 90, and mom, Nancy Kinmartin, 64, and it had always been his dream to have them both present were he to propose. But with the pandemic taking hold, Scott had to put his plans on ice, given that he was ready to marry partner Chelsea, 30, who Janet had never met, but could not travel to visit her in Buffalo, New York. Eventually, with flight paths opening up, Scott managed to convince his mom to fly from New York State to Portland, Oregon, where the couple are based, and Janet agreed to join. After the pair arrived, Scott revealed his proposal plans to his grandmother, and the three of them headed out to collect a ring he had recently selected. Scott documented his entire journey on video, and in order to keep things a secret from Chelsea, he managed to disguise his proposal as a meet-and-greet for family at her parents’ house, where Chelsea’s own 89-year-old grandmother was present. On October 14, Scott staged a family photograph with the couple's son, Sabre, before getting down on one knee.
