Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton was kind enough to join Kiss 95.1 in Charlotte on Wednesday morning to help one of our country’s servicemen take the next step in his life. A caller named Brian, who serves in the US Air Force and is currently stationed in New Mexico, proposed to his girlfriend over the phone. Typically the over-the-phone proposal is frowned upon, but when you’re serving in the military and get an NFL quarterback to help you pop the question it’s completely acceptable. Newton joined Brian on the line while hosts Drex and Maney got his girlfriend Kim on the phone. Kim was told that Newton was on the line, which seemed to completely overwhelm her as she’s obviously a huge fan. The Panthers quarterback then informed her that Brian has something he would like to ask her, and the conversation went something like this. “From the moment I met you, I knew that I loved you, and I knew that I wanted to love you for the rest of my life,” Brian told Kim. “I know when you say something over and over again, it can lose meaning, but every time I say I love you, I mean it, and I want you to be my wife. I want you to marry me.” Kim eventually said “yes,” but her immediate response after Brian’s proposal was priceless. “I can’t believe Cam Newton is on the phone,” she said. Talk about having a lot to take in at once. I recommend listening to the entire audio clip, which can be heard here. This is not the first time an NFL player has helped a fan propose to his girlfriend, but it just may be the most entertaining reaction we have seen.
