Christina Aguilera had a romantic surprise planned last night on the first stop of her Liberation tour.
‘I have a really special surprise that’s happening tonight,’ she told the audience while performing in Hollywood, Florida. ‘I wanna welcome two special people to the stage.’
Fans Mike Kontomanolis and Ben Lear came onstage, and Aguilera handed her mic to Lear. ‘Thank you for being an inspiration not only to everyone here, but to him,’ Lear told the singer, gesturing to Kontomanolis.
He then turned towards the other man: ‘You’re kind, you’re loving. Six years ago, you proposed to me, and you gave me the opportunity to say yes. Tonight, in front of Christina, I’m gonna ask you the same question.’
Pulling a ring box out of his pocket, Lear dropped to one knee and proposed. Kontomanolis, clearly emotional, immediately nodded his head yes.
