Texas tourist proposes to girlfriend after asking news crew to video moment

Santa Barbara County wedding proposal caught on camera at the request of the groom

SANTA BARBARA COUNTY, Calif. - Texas tourists got engaged while a Santa Barbara news crew captured the moment.

Alex Valedez had already planned to pop the question in a place with a spectacular view and when he and his friends spotted our TV news crew on a scenic overlook, off Highway 154, they asked Videographer Henry Galvan and Reporter Tracy Lehr to play along and figure out a way to video the moment without giving it away.

They asked Rosa Nunez if she would answer some questions about current events as Valdez got down on one knee and pulled out a box containing a diamond ring.

Nunez said, "Yes."

It appears the couple nervously put the diamond on Rosa's right ring finger, instead of the left, but it's all part of the engagement story they can tell family and friends.

The Texas couple already have a 4-year-old son named Daniel. He was all smiles during the memorable moment.
