Hippo Adorably Photobombs Couple's Proposal At The Zoo

"We're so happy Fiona could be there on our special day."

When Nick Kelble decided to propose to Hayley Roll on their one-year anniversary, he knew he wanted to do it somewhere special and a place that they both loved — so he chose the Cincinnati Zoo. 

The couple were waiting in line to have their photos taken with a hippo named Fiona. Roll told the Telegraph that she gave her phone to someone to take their photo and when she turned around, her boyfriend was on one knee proposing. 

The couple got even more of a surprise when Fiona adorably photobombed the special moment.

Roll shared photos on Instagram of Kelble proposing and they show the little hippo in the background watching the entire thing unfold.

Prior to Fiona photobombing the couple, she has already gained quite a following. The Cincinnati Zoo reported that Fiona was born six weeks premature weighing only 29 lbs. She was the smallest hippo to ever survive. Typically, full-term hippos weigh between 50 and 110 lbs.

On Oct. 24, the hippo celebrated turning 9 months old.

Roll told Fox News, "We are huge #TeamFiona fans and have been following her since she was born."

She added on Instagram, "We're so happy Fiona could be there on our special day."
