When Becky McCabe got down on one knee to propose, she had no idea that her girlfriend Jessa Gillaspie also planned to ask the big question that same day!

The adorable surprise left both women shell-shocked but thrilled!

The pair had their first date at a Memphis Zoo beer event and the two separately came up with the idea to propose there. 

So when 28-year-old school psychologist Jessa got down on one knee, 25-year-old PHD student Becky ran to grab something out of her bag… a ring to propose too!

In a post on Facebook, Jessa says, "I had no idea she planned to propose, and she had no idea I planned to propose to her! We were both so surprised!!!! We were surrounded by our friends and had the most amazing night. I am the luckiest girl in the world to be able to call her my fiancé."

After their story had gone viral, Jessa says the couple had no idea it would reach so many people. "I can’t say I’m not thrilled, because all I’ve ever wanted was for Beck and the world to know how much l love her."

Becky and her now-fiance Jessa met in graduate school in Memphis and have been talking about tying the knot for the past couple of months.

Their exciting day ended in a double proposal and one incredible story!
