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!

TRIGGER WARNING: This article contains sensitive content about depression and mental health.

As the stigma around mental health lessens (however slowly), people are more forthcoming about the problems they are facing. One of the most common mental health issues is depression.

Depression can affect many different types of people. Factors such as gender, race, nationality, and even age have no bearing on whether someone suffers from depression or not.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), globally, "...an estimated 3.8% of the population affected, including 5.0% among adults and 5.7% among adults older than 60 years..."

Depression displays in certain patterns, such as mood changes, physical difficulties, and social isolation. However, depression manifests differently in different people and feels different to different people.

Reddit users divulged what depression felt like to them when Redditor iodineseaspray asked:

"What does depression feel like to you?"

Some of this is sure to sound familiar.
