Watch: Twitter Melts After Gay Man Proposes to His Partner During Kylie Minogue Special

A Kylie Minogue "superfan" received a marriage proposal from his partner during a televised concert, and Twitter gushed with happiness.

The special, titled "An Audience With Kylie," was broadcast Dec. 10 on Britain's ITV, with the concert taking place at the Royal Albert Hall. "Viewers, and Kylie Minogue herself, got a surprise as one of the audience members had a very important and sweet question to ask," Yahoo News reported.

"First though, two young boys stood up to introduce themselves and ask a question," the article recounted, detailing that the boys "explained to Kylie that they were with their two fathers at the event, which saw a whole host of celebrities in the crowd..."

One of the boys' two dads then took the mic and posed a heart-warming question – not to the "Padam Padam" star, but to the boys' other dad, asking him for his hand in marriage.

"So, I wanted it to be memorable and special for our family, so thank you, because this question isn't to you," the man told Minogue, "it's to your superfan, Martin," Cover Media recounted.

"Martin, would you marry me?" the man asked his partner.

"Amid cheers from the crowd, Martin pointed to Kylie on stage and asked, 'What would you say?'" Cover Media relayed, "to which Kylie, 55, nodded and replied, 'Yes.'"

The crowd went wild with joy.

Minogue quipped, "I don't even know... has that just actually happened?"

The occasion grew even more special when Minogue "went on to ask the couple how they met and they said it was at one of Minogue's concerts, making it a sweet full circle moment for their family," Yahoo! News recounted.

Minogue was so moved she left the stage, Cover Media said, going to the men to give them a hug after exclaiming, "Thank you so much for coming. And congratulations!"

X, the social media platform once known as Twitter, melted.
