KINGSVILLE, Texas — On this day set aside to celebrate love, we have one special proposal that took about nine months to complete.
One couple from the Kleberg County area will remember this Valentine's for the rest of their lives.
On February 12, Victoria Mendiola and Lawrence Bergstrom welcomed their firstborn child into the world. It is also the day that the two love-birds got engaged.
Throughout the pregnancy, Lawrence had been planning something special and on Wednesday of this week, the couple officially got engaged with the help of little Brayden.
According to staff from the Labor and Delivery Department at Christus Spohn Hospital – Kleberg, after Victoria gave birth to her son, Brayden Lee Bergstrom, dad had a surprise up his sleeve.
Lawrence Bergstrom pulled out a special onesie that read, “Mommy will you marry my Daddy?”
"I was looking at his shirt and I was like, oh you know it has a lot of glitter. Like it's nice, it's pretty, and then I actually read the shirt and I was like oh my god what's going on! So, I turned around and he's there crying, and I'm like oh my god. I really couldn't believe it," said Victoria Mendiola.
"I actually had a lot that I wanted to tell her at the time, but I just got speechless when it came down to the moment, and I just let the shirt talk for me," said Lawrence Bergstrom.
Staff says Victoria wasted no time in saying, “yes,” with Lawrence calling it, “the best day of my life.”
The newly-engaged couple is very excited to start their journey with their newborn baby boy.
