Samira quote according Out magazine
Lauren came home and asked me to sit next to her. “Then she got me up, and we started dancing together. And she pulled a ring from behind the couch,” Samira told the magazine. “I was completely shocked. I was crying uncontrollably and kept backing away from her . . . We didn’t tell anyone else for a few days. That was really important to us — to have some time where it was just ours.”
Morelli took her turn to tell her own side of the story,revealing she why she popped the question before the trip. She claimed so they could celebrate while on a trip together.
“I found a ring, and they shipped it to me, and it was as if someone had handed me a ball of fire and said, ‘Here, tend to this.’ I was so nervous and terrified she knew it was coming, but she was so shocked that I couldn’t get her to stop crying,” Morelli told Out. “She was very clear she’d wait for me to be ready, so to give her something I knew she wanted so much was incredible. It was the most magical day of my life.”
