AUSTIN, Texas -- The Texas Book Festival in Austin may not be the most romantic place to get engaged, but if Tom Hanks is involved then she's bound to say "yes."

That's exactly what happened Saturday during the actor's Q&A at the festival.

Hanks was speaking to hundreds about his book "Uncommon Type: Some Stories." At one point he told the crowd that he was bored of answering questions and wanted to ask one for himself.

Hanks then pulled out a piece of paper and said that a man in the crowd, Ryan McFarling, had a question for a woman named Nikki Young. Hanks said the question was: “Nikki, will you marry me?''

The couple went on stage, McFarling got down on one knee and gave Young a ring. Hanks then hug the newly engaged woman and offered his best wishes to the couple.
