CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - The entire scenario was planned out flawlessly. Everyone knew about the surprise except for Kristopher Watkins' girlfriend, Nina.
Kristopher's family waited patiently at the international baggage claim at Charlotte-Douglas Airport. Kristopher's grandmother held a tiny box in her pocket which she would slip to her grandson in a long-awaited embrace.
Kristopher was returning from an 11 month tour in Afghanistan. He would make official, his plea to the love of his life.
As family cheered, Kristopher walked down the ramp into the waiting area. Dressed in his best military uniform, adorned with a impressive array of medals, he fell into the arms of his family.
Just as planned, Kristopher stood next to Nina. "I ain't perfect, by no means," he said in front of his whole family. More cheers erupted when he dropped to one knee.
In the middle of the baggage claim, "Will you marry me, for real?" Nina, in an attempt to be coy, pretented to think for a minute. But her final words were the answer Kristopher wanted to hear. "Yes, every day for the rest of my life," Nina said.
The two will be married before Kristopher returns to duty in 30 days.
