FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – A Fort Wayne couple is now engaged after some help from a Zumba class at Freiman Square Friday afternoon.
Kristin Ruesch and Alfonso Bonilla are both in the Army and met at a recreational salsa class while they were both deployed in Afghanistan.
After their deployment, the Kristen moved to Fort Wayne to be with Alfonso, but she wasn’t ready to get engaged.
Alfonso told her when she’s ready, she should ask him, and he’ll say yes. Watch the video and to see how that played out on Friday.
“I had no idea,” Alfonso said of Kristin’s plan. “I was just kind of looking around, I had no idea what going on, but I was definitely surprised.”
Kristin says she’s been planning the surprise for more than a year now.
“I was terrified,” she said. “It’s too bad every guy has to go through this, Women should have a little more sympathy.”
