Christina Aguilera is all about love.

The pop singer recently showed fans that love always wins by facilitating a marriage proposal at the opening night of her Liberation Tour in Hollywood, Florida.

Mike Kontomanolis and Ben Lear were brought up on stage after the chanteuse – who was decked out in a wedding-inspired dress – sang "Unless It's With You."



Lear dropped to one knee and produced an engagement ring for his unsuspecting beau and proposed to him.

"I could not have imagined you could have a better moment than [with] this woman, who has inspired you throughout your whole life and has brought you so many things," he said, while a gushing Aguilera looking on admiringly.

"You're kind, you're beautiful, you're loving. Six years ago, you proposed to me and you gave me the opportunity to say yes. Tonight, in front of Christina, I'm going to ask you the same question."




Aguilera then dedicated her next song, 2012's "Let There Be Love," to the newly engaged couple. "Should we celebrate this? Should we celebrate the love?" she asked the crowd, before promising the remainder of the evening to continue as a wedding reception.

"All right, guys: Let's turn this into a wedding reception! Let's have some fun tonight!"

The happy groom later expressed his excitement for the most exciting night of his life.




Comments from fans poured in for the 37-year-old singer.






Kontomanolis told E! News, "It all seemed like a dream. Christina was so gracious and humble; it was all just so surreal. She is my icon, so this was too much for words."

He thanked Aguilera backstage after the show, telling her, "You are so important to me. You've gotten me through so many important things."

"I don't know where I would be if I didn't have you and your music to lift me up and just carry me through."

She responded by thanking the couple for their support of her over the years.

"I wanted to share and dedicate this special moment to two people who have been tried and true through my life and supported me. So, I want to wish you guys the best of luck. Thank you so much! Muah! Congratulations, you guys!"

The Grammy-winner got emotional when she told the audience about her absence from performing since 2008's Back to Basics Tour to dedicate her time being a full time mom. "For a long time I have missed this so much," she said at the start of the show.

"I've missed you guys and it's been too long… Being a mom is really important to me and I'm a very hands-on mom. I never want them to feel that they live in my shadow or that they are not important. I don't wanna be that kind of mom, so I took some time off for them."

Cheers to the happy couple in their engagement!

Don't disturb my beauty sleep! That's the one rule I have––and thankfully I live alone, so there isn't anyone to bother me, which is fabulous. But that doesn't mean I'm immune to getting woken up in the middle of the night. The worst way I can think of off the top of my head? The time a drunk guy wandered into my friend's yard and started banging on the window while I was trying to sleep. It was 3 a.m. The incident also gave me the fright of my life!

People told us about the experiences that yanked them out of dreamland after Redditor GratefulD_86 asked the online community,

I love food! Maybe a little too much. It's been an especially amorous relationship over this pandemic. And I know I'm not alone.

All of our palettes are tuned to our own personal tastes. And sometimes certain items and combinations of tastes can leave others less than enticed.

I've lost track of all the side-eye I've gotten when I declare how much I enjoy PINEAPPLE on pizza. I said it. I meant it. Fight me. Let's discuss who else has eclectic tastes.

Redditor u/CatVideoFest wanted to discuss the mixing of certain ingredients that don't leave the best taste in one's mouth by asking:
