Noah Galloway may not have won “Dancing with the Stars” yet, but he certainly blew away the competition Monday night when he proposed to his girlfriend.
Galloway, a double amputee who was wounded while serving in Iraq, had just danced the waltz to David Cook’s “Time of My Life” when Erin Andrews brought him backstage, where his girlfriend Jamie Boyd was waiting.
“You’re amazing,” Boyd told Galloway. “You’re a beautiful dancer and you have a beautiful heart.”
Then, much to her surprise, the grinning Army vet got down on one knee.
“I’ve got to do this here. Will you marry me?”
“I’m speechless,” Boyd said. “And I’m never speechless!”
Andrews asked, “Is that a yes?”
The Alabama native was in his third month of his second tour of duty in Iraq when an IED attack hit. He was unconscious for days, and woke up on Christmas Eve to find out that he had lost his left arm above the elbow and left leg above the knee.
He’s now a father of three, a personal trainer, a motivational speaker — and newly engaged.
