(WAND/NBC) - Engagements and even weddings are common around Valentine’s Day, but the way one Illinois man proposed to his girlfriend is getting a lot of attention.

Typically an engagement ring comes in a ring box, but Kristian Helton did things a little differently.


His girlfriend, Karsyn Long, loves McDonald's chicken nuggets so much that he proposed to her by putting the ring in a box of nuggets.

Along with the ring, Kristian popped the question with the message, "Will you McMarry me?"

She said yes and the two plan to get hitched next Valentine’s Day.

McDonald’s even says they will cater the event.

The proposal has become such a hit on social media its gone viral getting thousands of "likes" and "retweets."

"Her love for chicken nuggets is I'm sure more than she loves me," said Long. 

"I know this sounds bad, but I go to McDonald's a lot. I always get chicken nuggets. I won't get anything else," said Long.
