Stout explained how he decided on the
“So I was listening to Spotify on my
way home from work one day,” Stout
said. “It was a really catchy tune and I thought it was great
because I had never heard it before. And then I put it on my
favorites and then I listened to it over and over again. I was just
like, 'This song rocks! I love it. It's great.' And then the
lyrics just kinda … resonated and get to that minimum where I was
like, 'I think I'm ready to put a ring on his finger.'”
Betty Who said that she wept openly
when she first saw the video of the marriage proposal.
“I was totally a wreck, and so
emotional. It was totally amazing,” she said.
Stout and Reese watched the performance
from backstage and afterward gave Betty Who a hug. (Video of Betty
