Marriage Proposal During Newscast (VIDEO)

While a correspondent delivered her report on eating healthy during vacation, a couple behind her accidentally stole the show.

The Washington Post found footage of KMBC correspondent Brenda Washington talking about candy bars and chips while Josh Mullin drops to one knee and proposes to his girlfriend, Ashlee Baldwin.

A station photographer told Washington about what had just happened behind her, and she astutely grabbed the couple for an on-camera interview.

It might not be the greatest marriage proposal ever, or as epic as an Inception-inspired wedding, but it is certainly sweet and refreshingly simple. Also, Mullin can be thankful it didn't go wrong.
