Of course, such things are more fun when you aren’t doing them under pressure from family and friends!

The emotional moment

Don and Tim have been together since 2016, but the proposal was a surprise.

Speaking to Page Six, the CNN anchor talked about the overwhelming emotions he felt when Tim asked him to be his husband. Don was so touched he couldn’t hold back tears!

Of course I cried! At first I was like, ‘Are you serious?’ His hands were trembling and his mouth was shaking, and he had a box in his hand and he got down on one knee.
