Pop star Demi Lovato stunned her fans — and longtime beau Wilmer Valderrama, no doubt — when she accepted an on-stage marriage proposal Saturday night from a handsome young suitor named Grant Feikert.
Women in the audience swooned as Feikert went down on one knee and offered his proposal with just a bit of prompting: “Demi, will you marry me?”
Then he slipped an impressive green/yellow ring on her finger and Lovato exclaimed, “I will.”
Oh, did we mention, Mr. Feikert is just five years old and the betrothal jewelry was a Ring Pop (watermelon flavor, we’re guessing).
In what may be the cutest marriage proposal you’ll ever see, Lovato calls the sweet-faced cutie pie on stage after the 22-year-old singer got word that there was a young man in the audience holding a familiar poster that read, “Demi, I have a ring for you.” Young Grant had been to three previous concerts, and his sign has been seen in a number of Lovato concert clips circulating the Internet.
Once on stage, the precious little boy, wearing bright red pants and a denim jacket, tells Lovato that his name is Grant and that he’s four years old. But, then he quickly corrects himself. “I’m five,” he says.
“Oh you’re 45,” jokes Lovato. “You’re of age.”
She tells the beaming child that he’s the cutest little boy ever and then asks him about the ring mentioned on his poster. Little Grant had forgotten to bring the ring onstage, but a member of the Lovato’s video crew was able to retrieve the ring from Grant’s mom, who was in the audience.
Lovato sweetly shows him on the proper technique of going down on one knee to propose and then he slips the ring on her finger.
With the proposal accepted, Lovato asks Grant if she could have a kiss. The little boy pecks her on the cheek and the crowd joins in a single heartfelt, “Aaaaaaah.”
“I love you so much and you are so sweet,” Lovato says. “I can’t wait to see you at the wedding.”
With Grant back in his seat, Lovato takes a moment to review the monumental event.
“Well, guys, we have big news tonight,” she says. “I’m engaged… to a five year old. It’s OK, my heart is melting.”
Then she sits at her piano and takes a good look at her new bling. “People [will say], ‘Oh, my God, let me see it.’ And I’ll be like, ‘It’s green.’”
“Then they’ll be like, ‘Oh, my God. How did he do it?’”
“[And I’ll say,] ‘On stage, at my concert… He even got down on one knee.’”
Continuing to admire the ring, she says, “I might wear this for the rest of the show.”
On Sunday, Lovato posted the proposal picture to her Instagram account with the following caption: “Oh and by the way guys…… I’M ENGAGED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!” “Grant … #CUTESTEVER #demiworldtour”
“It was so amazing to see him on stage with her,” Grant’s mom Kelly Feikert told E! News. “I have been singing one of her songs to Grant as a lullaby since he was born! He loves Demi and has seen her four times in concert! So, it was surreal and amazing seeing him up there with someone we admire so much! We are such fans of her, even more so now!”
