DWTS winner Bobby Bones proposed to Caitlyn this weekend
Bobby Bones won the Dancing with the Stars Mirror Ball Trophy, as fans know. But, he’s also known for mentoring American Idol winners. And, of course, fans know him from his Raging Idiots Band. Of course, he also hosts his Bobby Bones Show. Now, 40 years old, he surprised his girlfriend Caitlyn who he spent time with during quarantine.
The proposal went down in Nashville in the backyard barn. And, as a special extra, singer Mat Kearney played for them. He sang Nothing Left to Lose. Bobby chose the song because when they heard him in concert, the song made Caitlyn realize that Bobby Bones was the one for her. The Instagram post by the DWTS alum came with lots of photos of their special day.
Total surprise for Caitlyn Parker
One photo that Bobby shared revealed her covering her mouth with surprise. It came as she walked through the door of the barn. In another photo, Bobby knelt in front of her as he proposed. And, along the wall, some candles glowed. He captioned it with, “I am the luckiest. I waited so long for the right one. And it payed off [sic]” Then he talked about how he “surprised her with a secret proposal in the barn in the backyard.”
Then, when she “said yes,” Mat Kearney sang their special song “outside.” The DWTS alum said that he feels “so happy” as he marries the “love of [his] life.” People noted that celebrities like “Carrie Underwood, Lionel Richie, Dan Smyers and Russell Dickerson” quickly congratulated them. Meanwhile, fans also chimed in with their responses.
