Arnold Schwarzenegger helps man propose to girlfriend in Leeds

Arnold Schwarzenegger Leeds Proposal

A British couple from Leeds have got engaged with a little help from Arnold Schwarzenegger, the man who helped kill the Predator.

Mr Schwarzenegger, who is famous for his roles in blockbusters such The Terminator and Predator, posted a video of the proposal online.

The couple, Dean Goulding and Jessica Eddy, were called to the stage by Mr Schwarzenegger, who was making an appearance in Leeds at a charity event.

In the video, Mr Goulding gets down on one knee and pops the question.

Mr Schwarzenegger then embraces the happy couple as the crowd at Elland Road, Leeds United’s football ground, erupt into cheers.

Mr Goulding told Schwarzenegger: “Thanks so much Arnold, you’re a legend.”

The video has been viewed over 900,000 times on Facebook and over 50,000 times on YouTube.

The actor and politician appeared in Leeds last Friday for one of only two UK appearances, and paid tribute to Reg Park, the Leeds United reserve player whom went on to be crowned Mr Universe.

He told the crowd: “It’s wonderful to be back in Leeds. For me it’s kind of emotional coming here because my idol Reg Park was born in Leeds.

“He was one of the best bodybuilders of all time and is one of the people who was most inspirational for me.”
