Actor Miles Teller stopped by Live with Kelly and Ryan this morning and revealed how he recently proposed to longtime girlfriend Keleigh Sperry. The couple was on an African safari this summer when Teller decided to pop the question. So Teller planned what he thought would be a sweet and romantic surprise for Sperry, but admits that his now-fiancée didn't catch on at first.
"I had our guide early in the morning tie a rose to a tree, [and we] walked up to this nice scenic vista having coffee," he explains. But instead of seeing it as a romantic gesture, Sperry thought the worst. "She looked over and saw a rose and thought somebody had died. Which, whatever." The audience responded with tons of laughter.
Once Sperry realized it was not in fact, a memorial, Teller delivered a swoon-worthy proposal. He had written a card with the day they started dating—which he sweetly recalled as May 11, 2013, and the date of his proposal. "I said, 'This is the day you became my girlfriend and today was the last day you woke up as my girlfriend," he said, melting hearts throughout the studio audience.
Teller and Sperry have been inseparable since they started dating, with the model often appearing as Teller's date to Hollywood events. They recently attended the premiere of Teller's movie Only the Brave, after which Sperry shared sweet pictures of the two, with the caption, "So so so proud."
