Minutes-old baby helped her dad propose – by wearing baby grow with big question

Romantic dad Aaron Broadhead, 22, popped the question after Skyler-Grace arrived on Wednesday 15 August at the labour ward at Pinderfields hospital, West Yorkshire.

Speaking about his secret plan to surprise Skyler-Grace’s mum, Emily Barker, first-time father Mr Broadhead admitted he had been planning the proposal for about three months.

He said: “We’d been together for a year, I’d had it planned since Emily was about 28 weeks into her pregnancy. It was a big question so I was definitely nervous.”

Little Skyler-Grace, who weighed 6Ib 9oz, was briefly taken away from her mum to be washed and dressed, and Aaron seized the opportunity to slip his daughter into the baby-grow.

Fortunately, the baby grow fit his newborn daughter.

Mr Broadhead added: “I was a bit worried she wouldn’t fit into it – but she came out a healthy weight so it all worked out in the end.”

Wearing a little pink hat, the tot’s outfit read: “Mummy will you marry Daddy?”

Overwhelmed, new mum Ms Barker, 18, couldn’t say no to the adorable gesture following the birth.

Skyler-Grace was then handed back to an ecstatic Ms Barker.

Speaking of the romantic proposal, Ms Barker, from Leeds, West Yorks., said: “It was the happiest day of my life – I couldn’t believe it.

“It made Skyler-Grace’s birth extra special.”

The staff on the Labour ward were also over the moon with the romantic proposal and Labour Ward manager, Sarah Brennan said: “It was a lovely moment, all the staff were overwhelmed.

“It’s the first marriage proposal we have seen here on the Labour Ward at Pinderfields.”
