(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) An exciting moment during Live at Five Wednesday - our first live proposal!

Our floor director and camera operator Gary Smith proposed to his girlfriend Madi Adkins and she accepted.

She was discussing an upcoming missions trip to Guatemala when Gary saw it as the perfect opportunity to pop the question.

"I know she was being anxious. She wanted to get engaged for so long, you know. But it takes time to plan and I just wanted to make sure I did it right, even though I was pretty nervous," Smith said.

"After I saw Gary have a microphone on, I kind of had something in the back of my head but I was like he wouldn't do it on Live at Five, he wouldn't do it. And as he walked over, I was so shocked," said Adkins.

Gary and Madi have been together for three years. They met at Hollywood Theater.
