(Newser) – Jessa Gillaspie jumped up and down as her girlfriend got down on one knee Friday at the site of their first date, the Memphis Zoo, but there was more to the move than simple excitement. Before giving an answer, Gillaspie reached into her purse and pulled out a ring she'd bought for partner Becky McCabe with plans to propose that very day, per CBS News. She then took a knee, too. "I had no idea she planned to propose, and she had no idea I planned to propose to her! We were both so surprised," Gillaspie captioned a video of the event, viewed 819,000 times on Facebook. The in-sync Tennessee couple plan to wed next summer, reports WTHR. (Read more uplifting news stories.)
