A personal trainer from New Zealand with a large Instagram following has shared the moment he proposed to his girlfriend on the platform — and it was a pretty elaborate affair.
Josef Rakich looks to have spared no expense in asking for girlfriend Mimi’s hand, hiring a helicopter and an entire stadium, as well as gifting his new fiancée a pink Range Rover and a giant diamond ring in a flurry of fireworks and sparklers.
Rakich invited friends and family down to Eden Park, New Zealand’s largest sports stadium which is located in Auckland, to watch the moment he proposed.
He captioned this post: “Yesterday I asked the the girl of my dreams to spend the rest of her life with me!”
The pair arrived in a helicopter that was also hired for the occasion, from which he can be seen lifting Mimi while still blindfolded.
They had a camera crew on hand to capture every second of the proposal, which Rakich has since shared with his nearly 750,000 followers on Instagram.
The personalised pink Range Rover that had “Will you marry me?” written on the front windscreen was placed in a large pink box that was also packed with balloons.
As Mimi pulled the ribbon, the balloons started to escape, and she turned to face Rakich who was down on one knee. Once she said yes, the fireworks started going off.
You can catch a glimpse of her giant diamond ring in the post below.
Maryam Matti “Mimi” also shared some photos of the proposal with her nearly 80,000 followers.
Rakich appears to be used to sharing his extravagant lifestyle with his Instagram fans.
