Now, normally I like to start out an engagement session post with some lyrics from an obscure folk-pop song. But Chris is a rapper and a big fan of hip-hop, so in honour of that:
“Now would you leave me if your father found out I was thugging?
Do you believe me when I tell you you the one I’m loving?
Are you mad cause I’m asking you 21 questions?
Are you my soulmate? Cause if so girl you a blessing
Do you trust me enough to tell me your dreams?
I’m staring at ya trying to figure how you got in them jeans
If I was down would you say things to make me smile?
I treat you how you want to be treated, just teach me how
We only humans, girl, we make mistakes
To make it up, I’ll do whatever it takes
I love you like a fat kid love cake
You know my style, I say anything to make you smile”
-50 Cent + Nate Dogg
Chris proposed to Carrie in Ireland a few months ago. She’s from Dublin, so they went home to visit her family, and Chris put together the most epic scavenger hunt for her, complete with videos from all her friends and a made-up story about two cats (or was it puppies? or unicorns? Anyway, something cute and fluffy because that’s what Carrie likes, and Chris likes Carrie.) At the end, he got down on one knee and asked her to be his shorty for life. I’m so happy these guys are getting married, because, in the words of the immortal 50 Cent, they love each other like fat kids love cake.
