Dec. 10 (UPI) -- When The Wanted singer Siva Kaneswaran found out his girlfriend planned to throw him a surprise party, he turned the tables on her and surprised her with a ring.
Kaneswaran got the help of the family of Nareesha McCaffrey, his girlfriend of six years, and then got down on one knee to present her with a custom three-carat diamond ring.
"I said to her I wanted a present I would always remember this year by... for you to be my wife," he said. "It was like a military operation to plan the proposal. I couldn't even tell the other boys in the band in case they blew the surprise."
Kaneswaran said he had bought the ring several months before, and had been waiting for the right moment to pop the question.
"I'm still in shock," said McCaffrey, who was caught so off guard by the proposal she initially said no. "I don't like surprises and he really surprised me, but I was so happy."
"I can't wait to start planning the wedding," she said.
