Girlfriend Who Throws Birthday Party for Boyfriend Ends up Being Surprised With Proposal Herself

Exclusive to Happily

A woman who threw a party for her boyfriend was shocked when in fact, her boyfriend had secretly arranged the whole thing to propose to her in front of family and friends.


Cece Catena was left gobsmacked when boyfriend Alex Ramirez got down on one knee, declaring: “She thought she was gonna throw this party for me – but really this party’s for her.”

Alex had let Cece arrange the birthday party all while secretly planning to use the occasion for a proposal in front of their family and friends in Nipomo, California.

Video captured by the guests shows Alex blowing out candles on his birthday cake before beginning to make a speech.

As he thanked family and friends – including Cece’s close relations who had flown in from the East Coast – for coming to the party, Alex quickly turned his attention to Cece.

Thanking her for arranging the party, he added a ‘but’ before explaining he had really orchestrated the party so that he could ask a very special question.

Getting down on one knee, Alex asked if Cece would marry him, to which she said yes through floods of tears.

Cece said: “Honestly, I felt like I almost blacked out during it.

“I know it’s very cliche to say, ‘Oh, it’s the best day ever’, but honestly, I can’t think of another day that topped that.”

The same went for Alex, who said it would be a birthday to remember.

He added: “I honestly probably wouldn’t have done it if I couldn’t get them [Cece’s parents] to come.

“Family means everything you know. There’s probably a lot of stuff that they wish they could be a part of, so I definitely wanted to make sure, for the biggest moment yet, I definitely wanted them to be there.”
