Celine Dion’s priceless reaction during fan meeting

By Tribute on February 9, 2017 | 5 Comments

Céline DionCeline Dion with fans was shocked during a meet-and-greet with fans when a young man suddenly did something very unexpected.

Nick Janevski was at the meet-and-greet with his girlfriend, Austin McMillan. The two took a photo with Céline, then Nick suddenly got down on one knee and asked Austin to marry him.

Taken by surprise, Céline backed up into the curtain as the newly-engaged couple kissed.

Austin, who was equally in shock at the time, told ETOnline: “Céline was shocked and I was too. She was super sweet and wished us a long and happy marriage like she had with her husband [René Angélil]. Then [she] invited herself to the wedding!”

Céline’s husband, René Angélil, died last year after a long battle with cancer. They had been married for 21 years, and have three children together.

Nick and Austin were attending one of Céline’s final concerts in Las Vegas. McMillan is a lifelong fan of the French Canadian songstress, and couldn’t wait to watch her perform.

The hilarious aftermath of the proposal is making the rounds across the Internet.

Austin and Nick have yet to set a date for their upcoming wedding, but we hope Céline makes good on her promise and maybe even sings a song at the ceremony!  ~Ashleen Grange

    Perhaps it’s just me, but I find it kind of selfish and insensitive to propose in front of Celine, who’s lifelong love just passed away last year…

    Are we really all that fragile Vanessa? I think Celine would have found it romantic….the world still carries on after loss.

    Her reaction is hilarious. Also, Austin can be a female name?!

    Aaaawww. Celine is always super nice with her fans, am sure aside from being shocked she feels happy and love for this couple. After all, didn’t she sang – So don’t save it all for Christmas Day / Find a way / To give a little love everyday / Don’t save it all for Christmas Day thus she will be at their wedding – aaaahh lucky ones!
