Austin McMilan received the surprise of a lifetime when her boyfriend, Nick Janevski dropped down on one knee. McMilan, a huge fan of Celine Dion was surprised with not only a meet and great, but also a marriage proposal at the same time.

The two 24-year-olds were introduced to each other at their gym. When they began hanging out, both Austin and Nick knew that they were meant to be together.

Celine Dion has always been a part of Austin’s life. Her mom is a fan of the singer and she was practically raised off of her music. One day, when Nick picked her up from work, Dion’s “My Heart Will Go On” played on the radio. The two decided that her 1997 Titanic hit would be their official song.

Janevski serendipitously used to be a personal trainer for the manager of Dion. He decided to contact his old client and ask if he could possibly set up a meet and greet. Once the offer was accepted, he told McMilan of the upcoming plan. According to Buzzfeed, she was “freaking out” and was not sure what she would say to her all-time favorite celebrity for 30 seconds.

After the Vegas performance, the couple headed back stage.  It was then Nick popped the question in front of the singer.



Entertainment Tonight reports that Austin was “shocked and couldn’t get any words out.” However, she was not the only person impressed by the proposal. Dion reportedly backed up into the curtain and said “are you going to say yes?” Needless to say, Dion was just as shocked as Austin about the marriage proposal. Good news, Austin did say yes!



Apparently, Celine has even invited herself the wedding. Major brownie points, Nick.
