FISHERS, Ind. — A 5-year-old girl is stealing the spotlight from her just-engaged mother and it's all thanks to her stepfather-to-be's sweet, thoughtful proposal.
When Grant Tribbett, of Westfield, Indiana and Cassandra Reschar started dating, she was already a single mom. Once Grant decided that it was time to propose, he asked one of Cassandra's girlfriends to book a nail appointment for the mother and daughter.
The Saturday after they got their nails done, Grant took them to Cracker Barrel for breakfast. They went for a walk in the Ritchey Woods Forest Preserve in Indiana after breakfast. That's where he finally proposed.
But here's the twist: Grant got down on one knee and proposed to Adrianna, too.
According to Cassandra, who later shared her experience on The Knot's How He Asked, he asked, “Adrianna, can I be your daddy, to promise to love and protect you for the rest of your life?”
Adrianna, like her mother, said 'Yes.'
“Yes! I finally get a daddy, Mommy, I finally get a daddy!”
He presented her with a heart necklace that she says she now carries as a piece of his heart with her.
The couple will get married in December, and Adrianna will be the flower girl.
