Man Surprises Partner With Marriage Proposal in the NICU

A man surprised his partner with a marriage proposal at the New York Presbyterian Hospital in their daughter’s room at the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) on Thursday, February 11.

According to the hospital, Teon Kennedy had big plans to propose to his girlfriend, Martine Drouillard, before the COVID-19 pandemic hit.

Kennedy’s proposal plans were put on hold after Drouillard gave birth to baby Morgan in April 2020, who was then moved to the NICU. The couple grew close to the NICU staff and Kennedy decided to recruit the entire care team to help him with his proposal.
