Love was in the air at Adele's One Night Only special. The British singer gave fans an event of a lifetime with an intimate concert at the Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles that premiered Sunday, Nov. 14 on CBS.

There were celebrities in attendance such as Lizzo, Oprah, Drake, Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade, and many more. And while the audience was there to enjoy the angelic sounds of Adele, little did they know that they would also get to witness the proposal of a lifetime.

Adele One Night Only - Surprise Proposal

The "Hello" singer stopped her show and announced what was going to take place. As the lights went down, a man, Quentin Brunson, and a woman, Ashleigh Mann, walked out in front of the audience.

Quentin guided his blindfolded girlfriend down a path as she questioned what her beau was up to. As she took the blindfold off, she was caught off guard after realizing she was surrounded by a sea of people looking at her and Quentin, who was on bended knee.

Quentin started off his speech by thanking her for being patient with him. "I'm extremely proud of you and every day, you blow my mind," he said. "There's absolutely nothing that you can not do and I just know that you're going to be an amazing mother to our kids one day and I love you."

There were waterworks as he continued to praise Ashleigh, and while she too was crying she asked, "Who are these people?" Which made everyone laugh. After a lot of "Oh my God's" from Ashleigh, Quentin was finally able to pop the question to which she replied, "yes."

After the audience broke out into applause, Adele came out on stage, and Ashleigh's expression was priceless. The singer instructed the couple to sit down and enjoy the show and as they sat down, Ashley realized she was sitting next to Lizzo and comedian Melissa McCarthy, shocking her even more.

Adele began performing her hit song "Make You Feel My Love," which she also dedicated to the lovely couple. Quentin and Ashleigh spoke about the heartwarming moment with Gayle King on CBS Mornings.

Couple of 7 years gets engaged at "Adele One Night Only" CBS special

As to how the proposal came about, Quentin said he answered an ad that was looking for couples to propose and he had a feeling that he and Ashleigh would get chosen.

"They didn't give me a lot of information for the good because it would have made me more nervous. So I found out about it being Adele maybe a couple of days before it happened and I did not know who was going to be there in the audience," he said.

In fact, Quentin avoided looking at the audience so he wouldn't be as nervous. As far as what was going through Ashleigh's mind when blindfolded, she said, "I honestly thought we were going to go on a hayride," she said. "I'd been talking about going to the pumpkin patch so I just assumed we were doing something cool like that, but I saw him down on one knee and Adele was standing there, and I was like, 'Am I alive? This could be a dream.'"

The couple also had to keep their engagement under wraps until the special premiered. Quentin and Ashleigh have been together for seven years, which Ashleigh hilariously mentioned during the proposal that that was a "long time."

Gabrielle Union is not here for the label stepparent. While she became a stepparent after marrying Dwyane Wade in 2014, that doesn't mean that she wants to be defined by it. The actress spoke about the dislike of that term during her appearance on Glennon Doyle's "We Can Do Hard Things" podcast.

It was actually pretty close to this time last year when I penned the piece "How To Get Through The Holidays If You Don't Observe Them". Unlike some of the other articles that I write for the site, I pulled that one from very personal experience. Being that my personality is very wired to "be good" on something once I know its origin, holidays are something that I tend to take a pass on; this includes Thanksgiving (some insightful reads on its origin are found here, here and here). Still, this doesn't mean I'm not aware of the fact that many people use this time of year to reflect on their blessings and to say "thanks" for all the good that has come their way. Since I like to write on relationships a lot, I thought to myself, "Why not come up with ways for people to show gratitude to their significant other?"

I didn't want to say that I was having bad luck. That's not something I'd ever want to speak into existence over my life. But I will say something wasn't right. I had a few coins stacked in my purse from a one-time project as well as from an ongoing one. Then I received emails from not one but two publications within days apart asking me if I'd like to contribute a few articles every week. Opportunities and money were flowing in. If you follow the law of attraction, you'd say I was vibrating on a high frequency.

Tinashe has learned a lot about her mental health while growing up in the entertainment industry. The singer/songwriter began dancing at four years old and had her first movie role at five years old.

From there, she went on to be in a girl group The Stunners and act in TV shows like Two and a Half Men. Now as an independent artist focusing solely on her music, the "All Hands on Deck" singer opened up about the struggles she faced in the industry.

My favorite time of the year is the start of the official boot season which begins during the transitional period between summer and fall. What's most exciting about the sudden drop in temperatures is stepping back into those sleek pair of boots for the first time in months. Whether zipping up oldies but goodies or investing in a new fall 2021 boot trend, this year is all about the calf boot. Specifically, this is the best option when easing your summer clothes into the appropriate fall looks.
