Irish lesbian reality stars got engaged


Shannon Whelan proposed to Ciara Smyth on February 15, after the pair met during an episode of the Irish edition of the show First Dates almost two years ago. A clip of Whelan getting down on one knee at her own birthday party was shared by Irish TV channel RTÉ. In the video, Whelan is up on stage talking to the crowd, when she reveals that she had popped a different question to Smyth’s mother, Pat. She asked her future mother-in-law for a blessing to propose her daughter, who was unaware of what was going on. Shannon also asked Pat to give her her engagement ring for the proposal and the mother happily agreed. After screams from some in the audience, the Dubliner walks down off the stage, bends down and takes her partner’s hand. Smyth had no idea why her girlfriend did so. “My jaw literally hit the floor, it came to me as a complete surprise,” she said. “I got so nervous, all I could really say was: ‘I suppose I will.’ But I know I’ve made the right decision and I can’t wait to spend my future with the girl I love.”
