CINNAMINSON, N.J. — This story of true love is straight out of the movies.

Courney Greenhalgh shared a video from a celebration for her sister Ashley’s high school graduation and 21st birthday, ABC13 reports.

Ashley’s boyfriend, Danny, was by her side. Ashley and Danny were both born with Down Syndrome and have been dating for the last two years.

While the couple had discussed marriage in the future, they hadn’t made any immediate plans. Nonetheless, Danny wanted to prove his dedication to her.

In the video, Danny gets down on one knee and presents Ashley with a diamond promise ring. He had saved his own money to buy it for her.

It goes without saying that Ashley was ecstatic.

“The presentation of the ring takes this thoughtful gift to a whole new level,” Greenhalgh said. “Not only do they both share an unconditional love for one another, they show a genuine appreciation for life on a daily basis.”
