The sweet proposal went down at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta last Sunday night. The Atlanta Falcons play the New Orleans Saints. The Falcons have three male cheerleaders in their squad, one of them, Ben, was in for a big surprise.

Ben’s boyfriend, Dominic, a registered nurse, decided that the game would be the perfect opportunity to pop the question. He duly got down on one knee, to the surprise and delight of the cheerleading team, and to Ben’s total shock.

Dominic is originally from Arkansas and moved to Atlanta after graduating from nursing school. Ben is originally from Austin, TX, but grew up in Atlanta. She is in her second season as a cheerleader with the Falcons, and before that, enjoyed four seasons suiting up for the WNBA’s Atlanta Dream.

When not cheerleading, Ben works as a financial analyst for a large consulting firm. The two men have been together for just over two years.

“We hope to get married next summer!” Dominic told Queerty, “But the date is still tentative.

“Benjamin was very surprised by the proposal. He had no idea this was happening. His cheer coaches and teammates were supportive and so was the entire Falcons organization.

Both men shared pics to their Instagram, including tam mascot Freddie Falcon giving them a hug.
