ST. LOUIS – A former emergency room technician proposed to his girlfriend, an ER nurse at SSM Health Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital, on Friday.

And it was a total surprise.

Kristen Williams thought she was coming to the hospital to be honored by a patient family. Instead, her boyfriend, Ryan Cleavelin, proposed to her in front of her coworkers, patients, families and volunteers.

And of course, she said yes!

Cleavelin and Williams met back in 2014 while working in the emergency department.

Congratulations to the future Mr. and Mrs. Cleavelin!
