Saturday was already set to become one of the most special days of Louisville senior Taraneh Momeni’s life. As if graduating from the School of Dentistry and walking across the stage to receive her diploma wasn’t enough, her boyfriend decided to make it much more memorable. When Louisville basketball player and fellow senior Kyle Kuric stepped on stage as Momeni’s name was called to receive her degree, she thought he was up there to photograph the moment. Then, he took the microphone.

“Sorry to interrupt,” Kuric said as you can see in the video that WHAS 11 shared with us. “Me and her have been dating for about two-and-a-half years and I love her more than anything and definitely want to be with her for the rest of my life. I love her very much.”

He then dropped to one knee and proposed. She said yes.

“I was just sitting their anxious, getting all nervous,” Kuric said describing the moments leading up to the proposal. “I started shaking and I finally got up there to do it and worked out well. My entire family was going to be in town and obviously her entire family was going to be in town for this so, we wanted it to be a big family thing and she had no idea so that just added to it.”

Bravo, Kyle. Fortunately Taraneh was ready for the commitment, or what started out as a special day could have gone south in a hurry. Just ask this guy.
