A dad is melting hearts with an adorable marriage proposal.
Enlisting the help of his one-day-old son, Ryder, new dad Darick Mead took his bride-to-be by surprise with a moment she won't forget.
A video posted on Twitter shows the new mum getting ready to change Ryder's nappy for the first time when she realises his onesie has a message written on the front: "Mummy, will you marry my Daddy?"
Of course, she said yes!
Speaking to ABC News, Mead said: "I didn't want to do it just because of my son. I wanted to do it because it felt good in my heart."
Mead, 26, met his wife Susan Medina, 20, on the social network MeetMe.com and hit it off straight away.
The doting dad had planned to propose the day his son was born, but after a long labour he postponed his plans.
"She was in labour for over 17 hours and she pushed for two-and-a-half hours," Mead said. "Three epidurals later and ... Ryder was born via emergency C-section."
Medina said she had no idea what her hubby-to-be was up to.
"I don't even remember what exactly I was feeling. I just know that I started crying out of nowhere," Medina told ABC News. "I did not expect that to happen."
"I was even waiting for him to say, 'Oh just kidding,'" she added. "I’m pretty sure I asked him, 'Are you sure?'"
