Ray Smith, 38, of Grimsby, U.K., told his 33-year-old girlfriend Claire Bramley that he would document her pregnancy in photos. Smith took a total of 148 selfies with Bramley, who is now eight months pregnant, posing for them without noticing one very important detail.
Smith was secretly proposing to her in every single one of the almost 150 pictures by including tiny slips of paper with the question “Will you marry me?” in the poses.
“I had no clue, I was totally oblivious to it all,” Bramley said. “He told me he was taking the pictures to create memories for the baby so I just let him get on with it.” To that, Smith added, “Sometimes she wanted to see the pictures so I had to take more than one — one with the card and one without.”
However, since Bramley didn’t seem to be aware of what was going on, Smith decided it was time to do something about it. He officially proposed on Christmas Day. “I was totally surprised, but in hindsight it’s exactly the kind of thing he does. He likes to do romantic things,” Bramley said.
“I said ‘yes’ straight away, I didn’t need to think about it. I got a bit emotional but I am pregnant after all.”
