PARIS (AP) - It could have been a scene from fairytale movie “Frozen.”

And an AP photographer snapping tourists at the Eiffel Tower’s Christmas ice-rink Tuesday happened upon the fairytale moment.

Real estate agent Jon McAchran, 32, of Virginia Beach, Virginia, provoked instant applause when he got down on one frosty knee (and ice-skate) to pop the question on the ice to his girlfriend Ashley Marie Kimberl, 30, presenting her with a sparkling diamond engagement ring.

Kimberl confirmed her answer to the AP: “We’re getting married!”

She gushed that “it was a surprise, as our first date was on an ice-rink in Virginia.”

This was not the first time that the question has been popped at the Eiffel Tower - Tom Cruise famously asked Katie Holmes to marry him there in 2005.
