The 38-year-old talk show host and the 47-year-old songwriter announced their engagement on Monday (April 8) during an episode of The Talk.
“We go to a park, and we have food and we’re eating it, it’s really sweet and there’s this guy sitting playing guitar, like a street musician, and he starts playing this song that we love… I’m like, ‘Oh, that’s so weird, this is so magical and amazing,’” Sara said about how Linda proposed.
“So that ends and she’s like, ‘Oh, I’m gonna ask him to play this other song,’ but this other song is really obscure and this guy wouldn’t know it, but magically he knows it… And suddenly the people picnicking next to us pull out string instruments from under the blanket and walk over and they start playing Love Song (by The Cure),” Sara added. “Then she goes to her backpack and she pulls out some T-shirts and the first T-shirt says, ‘Will,’ and then she puts on another T-Shirt that says, ‘You,’ ‘Marry,’ ‘Me’ and the last one is a question mark. And then she goes to her backpack and gets a ring.”
“So then she says, ‘Ok, turn around,’ and I turn around and our mums are there and a couple friends… So I think that’s it and it’s the most amazing proposal ever and then… this guy walks up and she’s like, ‘This is John Waite,’ and he starts playing ‘Missing You,’” Sara said.
Congratulations to the happy couple!
