Former Wolverine actor, Hugh Jackman helped one fan propose the million dollar question to his girlfriend after receiving a letter from him.
Jackman shined his star power on the special occasion of one happy couple.
The 50-year-old actor surprised fans when he took a moment of a break from his tour, "The Man. The Music. The Show." in St. Paul, Minnesota, on June 22.
“I don’t normally do this and you’ll understand why afterward but I got a letter from a guy named Joe,” Jackman told the crowd present at the Xcel Energy Center. “Joe told me he was going to be here in the audience.”
As the actor stepped off the podium, he reached Joe Kripal and his girlfriend Sanaa Ahmed while bystanders in the background could be heard chanting, “Oh my gosh, oh my gosh.”
As Jackman requested the camera operator to pan the spotlight on him and Kripal, he gave an extra microphone to the man and said, “Hi Joe, how are you doing? It’s good to meet you. Say hi to everyone.”
Jackman expressed his apology for not being able to attend McKellen party later only to send a video where he sang a rendition of “Happy Birthday,” much to the crowd surprise.
At the end of the video, Jackman added, “Love you, man. Happy birthday.”
