Tom Hanks helps couple get engaged at Texas book reading

It seems like we could all use a little good news on this Monday and, thankfully, actor Tom Hanks did something pretty cool over the weekend.

While hosting a reading of his new book, “Uncommon Type: Some Stories,” in Austin, Texas on Saturday, Hanks helped a couple get engaged.

Hanks told the crowd he was getting tired of people asking questions and said he would like to pose one of his own.

He then pulled a slip of paper out of his pocket and said that a man in the audience, Ryan McFarling, had a question for Nikki Young.

“Nikki, will you marry me?”

The couple ran on stage, where McFarling gave Young a ring and snapped some photos with the actor.

Hanks said that everyone in the audience could agree that McFarling was a lucky man and wished the couple well before they returned to their seats.

That’s all we have to say about that.
