You never know what will happen when renovating a house, but the latest episode of the popular home improvement show “Fixer Upper” takes the cake, the wedding cake that is.
After the big reveal, U.S. Marine TJ had a big question for his girlfriend Stephanie.
As Chip and Joanna Gaines watched, TJ dropped to one knee and asked Stephanie to marry him.
Chip told the happy couple, “What a beautiful start to the rest of your life. We both sincerely hope you live here happily ever after,” People reported.
TJ and Stephanie met while he recovered from a leg amputation after he had an injury from an IED during his Afghanistan tour, according to HGTV.
The couple had purchased the starter home before the show. With a small budget of $45,000 for repairs, the Gaines raised donations for the couple from the residents of Waco, Texas to double the project’s budget to make the home more accessible.
