Cincinnati Zoo’s baby hippo, Fiona, got a front-row seat to a wedding proposal between two of her fans.

A snapshot shared on Instagram shows the hippo underwater with her face near the glass, watching as Nick Kelble got down on one knee in front of her with a ring box for his smiling girlfriend, Hayley Roll.

Thankfully the hippo didn’t put Hayley off and she accepted the proposal made earlier this month.
