Unbeknownst to a CBC Saskatchewan reporter, a man being interviewed had a special Valentine's Day surprise planned.

Justin Folk decided that it was the right time to get down on one knee during an interview about love with CBC.

The reporter asked if Justin Folk and his girlfriend Cheyenna McKenzie could share a good love story or favourite Valentine's memory.

Folk said, "I sure could."

He then got down on one knee and asked McKenzie, "Will you marry me?"

She quickly said "yes" followed by, "Did you set this up?"

"No, I didn't set this up it was impromptu," Folk responded. "I was planning on it tonight but there you go. See if it fits."

The couple have been together five years and were spending their Valentine's Day with their son, Bo, at the MacKenzie Art Gallery.
