Most little girls dream of the day they'll get engaged. The love of your life down on one knee, a gorgeous diamond-encrusted ring, an adorable baby hippo... all of these things combine for a truly magical experience you'll remember forever.
Okay, so maybe that hippo part isn't so common. But if you're the bride-to-be who got engaged at the Cincinnati Zoo on October 8th, that baby hippo made for one VERY memorable engagement photo.
Have you heard of Fiona the hippo?

On October 8th, Nick Kelble and Hayley Roll made a special trip to the zoo.
"Nick, my boyfriend, and I were waiting in line to get our photo taken with Fiona and I gave my cell phone to someone to take the photo and when I turned back around..."
The pic went viral, and the internet lost its collective mind at the hilarious cuteness.

Along with the proposal pic, the couple also got three more pics with the famous hippo.
via: TwitterWhile Hayley and Nick look happy and in love here, Fiona appears less than impressed. But, considering her worldwide popularity, she's probably seen some crazy stuff in her short 9 months.
Based on their engagement, we're guessing the wedding will be a truly spectacular affair.

Hayley told the Daily Buzz that no one at the zoo knew about the engagement beforehand.
via: TwitterThis means that Fiona just sensed that something BIG was about to go down. “We’re so happy Fiona could be there on our special day. Here’s to many more years of going to zoos with you," Hayley captioned the Instagram photo. Best. Engagement. Photo. EVER.
