Who knew Ryan Gosling was such a good dancer?

No, the proposal of our dreams didn’t happen over the weekend. But Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes did witness a proposal at SXSW. And it was all kinds of sweet.

On Saturday, during a Q&A for Gosling’s directorial debut, Lost River, an audience member changed the subject for a few precious moments to pop the question to her girlfriend of 11 years.

“This really wasn’t planned. My heart started pounding and I couldn’t help it,” she said after Gosling personally handed over his microphone.

Of course, the girlfriend said yes, the room clapped (and probably cried tears of joy), and naturally, the panel ended on the sweetest note possible. (Yes, even sweeter than when Gosling talked about the “amazing women” in his life, aka. Mendes and their baby girl, Esmeralda, at another panel the day before).

Watch it all go down, below. (The proposal starts around the 11:45 mark).

Lost River opens Apr. 10.
