An Indiana man proposed to his girlfriend and included her younger sister, WXIN-TV in Indianapolis reported.

Will Seaton, 25, and Ashley Schaus, 23, met at a car show several years ago, the station said. Schaus’ younger sister, Hannah, 15, has Down syndrome. Ashley Schaus told Seaton he’d have to marry two girls if they ever got engaged since Hannah is dependent on her, WXIN said.

Seaton got on one knee and asked Schaus to marry him, and then got down on one knee a second time to ask Hannah to be his “best friend forever.”

“I was very surprised. Will is wonderful, but he's rather humble and so this gesture blew me away. She was so happy, and all I could think about was how special this was for her,” Schaus told the television station.
