Filmmaker Glenn Weiss proposes girlfriend Jan Svendsen at Emmy Awards 2018

This year’s Emmy Awards will be quite memorable for filmmaker Glenn Weiss and his girlfriend Jan Svendsen as the director while accepting his award, proposed to his girlfriend.

The proposal came as a surprise to Jan as she had no clue about it. Glenn Weiss started off his speech by thanking his daughters, friends and also he spoke about his late mother. Then finally, he did an impromptu proposal, wherein he said,  “Jan, you are the sunshine in my life," he said. "And mom was right, don't ever let go of your sunshine. You wonder why I don't like to call you my girlfriend? Because I want to call you my wife." The crowd were all cheering, while Jan Svendsen made her way on to the stage and Glenn Weiss was holding a ring which was given to him by his late mother. He further said, "I want to put this ring that my mom wore on your finger in front of all these people and in front of my mom and your parents watching from above". She indeed said yes to the cute proposal.

Later the couple were on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, where both were interviewed by Jimmy Kimmel, while they were seen lounging in bed.
