“Prince Charming” Gets Down On 1 Knee In Front Of His Cinderella — And Their Audience! 

Prince Charming actor proposes to Cinderella on stage.

Who says “happily ever after” only happens in fairy tales? Audience members at a recent stage production of “Cinderella” in Sun Prairie, Wisconsin, got to witness a real-life love story reach its happy ending at curtain call. Actor Gabe Hanna, who was playing the role of Prince Charming, surprised Cinderella by proposing to her on stage. It turned out that the pair was dating in real life, so Gabe took the opportunity to turn the performance into the most magical engagement ever.

Ella Kleefisch (yes, her name is Ella in real life) couldn’t help but shed tears of joy as Gabe announced to the audience how much she meant to him.

“I have known Ella for the last two years, and throughout the last two years I have been the most happy that I’ve ever been in my entire life,” he said. “Two years ago I was awake at night, hoping, praying to God that someone would come into my life and love all the things that I love and do all the things that I do and be my everything. And yes, I’ve found her.”

He added, “She is my angel.”

After delivering his beautiful speech, Gabe got down on one knee before his partner and produced a ring from inside his jacket. Both the audience and the other cast members erupted into cheers when Prince Charming popped the question.

“Ella Rose, will you marry me?”

Cinderella gave an emotional yes before getting swept into his arms for a sweet kiss. Everyone on stage, including Gabe, came together in singing the last song, “Finale: The Wedding,” according to People. The engaged couple have been sharing the most adorable photos and videos of the fairy tale proposal on Instagram.
