 Man Proposes to Girlfriend at Hospital Bedside Moments After She Wakes Up From Month-Long Coma

A man gave his girlfriend something extra to fight for when he proposed at her hospital bedside, moments after she woke from a month-long coma. Laying eyes on the man she loves after 30 days in the dark, she said yes.

Public health student Viktoria Cupay, 25, has had lupus since 2016, an incurable autoimmune disease that can cause joint pain, fever, skin rashes, and organ damage. In 2019, Viktoria fell ill and her mother took her to the emergency room at Rush University Medical Center in Chicago, Illinois, thinking it was “just another lupus flare-up.” Viktoria Cupay fell into a coma in August 2019.

It felt like touching for her family and friends, and when she woke up a month later, her boyfriend Nicholas William Baldo decided not to waste a minute showing that he cared to what extent.

When she comes around and opens her eyes, Nick has proposed to his beloved mate and they are now looking forward to getting married.

The young woman, originally from the Philippines but now living in Chicago, slowly gained the strength to open her eyes and flash a small smile as her loving family watched from the side of her bed.

Touching footage captured by Viktoria’s mother Greta Cupay shows Nicholas wearing personal protective equipment asking his girlfriend in his hospital bed to marry her while holding an engagement ring.

Among those who watched over her was her boyfriend of a year and three months, Nicholas, who would talk to her in hopes that she would one day become responsive again.

When Viktoria started showing signs of consciousness, Nicholas saw his chance and asked for her hand in marriage a few weeks later when she fully woke up, showing his devotion to her even in times of strife.

Viktoria was discharged from the hospital after seven months, although her fight with incurable Lupus continues.

The pair, however, now have an added goal in their lives, setting a date for next year and getting ready to invite all their family and friends to celebrate their special day
