The Grand Proposal

The fans now know all about the big proposal George pulled off for claire. But many don’t know that George had given her a pre-engagement ring back in 2017, three days after he got drafted.

Claire initially panicked because she thought he was proposing, but he calmed her down and told her it was just a pre-engagement thing. 

After years of dating, George wanted to do something grand for the big proposal day. So for that, he planned a surprise like no other!
 
The footballer convinced his girlfriend to join him for a fake team photoshoot, which claire believed was for 49ers players and their wives and girlfriends. However, he told her that it was for the team’s marketing purposes. 
 
On the other hand, he talked to the team’s photographers and video editors about his secret plan. But, of course, as soon as they heard the plan, they were on board as well. 

The Aftermath

On the big day, August 12, 2018, George took Claire down to the Santa Cruz beach, beautifully decorated with ample lighting. The whole setup looked like a photoshoot with cameras and drones all over. 
 
While the couple was posing and photographers were shooting, George got claire a little distracted and immediately got down on his knee to ask her the question. 
 
Claire later said that she was shocked but delighted. George posted the pics on his Instagram. 
 
The videographers took videos of the whole procedure and later edited it into 10 minutes of extended video footage.
 
Later in a radio interview, George boasted about the proposal.
 
He was heard saying, “I’m not going to brag, but I think I killed it, I’m not going to lie,” which sounds like bragging to us.

Kittle’s mom was the photographer while her brother played guitar throughout the ceremony and afterward. 
 
The ceremony took place in a family friend’s jewelry shop in Iowa. While they had planned to do it on the rooftop, they had to move it to the main showroom because of rainy, cold weather.
