Prominent Hollywood Director, Glen Weiss, was the man of the moment on Monday night’s Emmy award show as he proposed to his longtime girlfriend Jan Svendsen on stage, and to a live audience of millions of viewers around the world.
Weiss had come out for his acceptance speech after receiving his award for ‘Outstanding Directing for a Variety Special’. But he began by talking about his mother who died two weeks ago then moving on to how Jan is the sunshine his mom said to never let go of.
Mom always believed in finding the sunshine in things, and she adored my girlfriend Jan. Jan you are the sunshine in my life, and mom was right, don’t ever let go of your sunshine. You wonder why I don’t like to call you my girlfriend, because I want to call you my wife! “
Then to the surprise of everyone in the Microsoft Theatre, Glen told Jan why he didn’t like calling her his girlfriend – because he had always seen her as his wife.
He then pulled out the engagement ring his dad gave his mom “67 years ago” and while making a joke to his family about not swiping the ring, he asked Jan to be his forever mate.
