Most people these days seem to be breaking away from tradition and doing whatever they want, especially when it comes to relationships, marriage, and starting a family. But that's okay because this actually keeps things interesting. Now, in the case of Mark Thomas, things didn't go in the order that you'd expect. He and his wife fell in love and eventually had a daughter. Years later, they decided to get married. But after Mark and his wife, Kathryn tied the knot, Mark chose to pop the question. Wait! What? Wouldn't he have to have done that before he got married? Actually, it wasn't Kathryn he proposed to. It was his daughter.
Actually, things didn't exactly go in that order for Mark and his wife, Kathryn. First, they fell in love back in 2012, and then they had a daughter named Evelyn, who is now four years old. But the little girl didn't want to feel left out of her parent's wedding.
Most parents would have corrected Evelyn and reminded her that this was Mommy and Daddy's big day, but Mark and Kathryn didn't do that. Instead, they encourage her misconception. After all, this was an important occasion for the entire family.
So, Mark Thomas walked up to Evelyn, who was sitting on the couch in the living room. Then, he got on one knee, took out a ring and proposed to his daughter. The moment was unforgettable and it was obvious that the little girl was tickled pink by her dad's kind gesture.
The little girl was expecting a ring of her own and her dad didn't disappoint her. He went to the jewelers, got her a ring, and proposed to her properly. Of course, he probably should have left out the part where he told her that mommy had gotten two rings, but the little girl was okay with one.
She reached out to grab her ring, which Mark described as a very special moment. Why? Because he told his daughter that he and Kathryn had always intended for the union to be about the three of them, not just about mommy and daddy.
The proposal was one of those hold your breath moments, but of course, there was no way that Evelyn was going to turn down the most important man in her young life. So, if you're still wondering, you'll be relieved to know that she said yes.
Mark took the ring and placed it on her finger, but not before reminding her that once the ring went in, they were officially a family. The girl was so excited that she kissed the ring a bunch of times. Then she leaned into her dad, who carried her off like a knight.
Mark created the cutest memory ever for his daughter. But he also set the standards high on what a good father is, and now every man will likely have to aspire to be just as awesome as he has been to his daughter.
