This Morning

A big congratulations are in order for Niki Whyatt and Samantha Lochrie!

The couple, who both have Down Syndrome, got engaged on UK breakfast show This Morning.

Niki and Samantha were on the show to discuss the fact that they’d been banned from kissing at the local youth club.

Niki’s mum Jackie commented: “One night they were kissing and one of the staff members went over to Niki and told him it was inappropriate to kiss, and we thought, ‘Well, what’s the problem? They’ve been doing this for a long time. They’re not the only couple that kiss.'”

Niki, 30, got down on bended knee, producing a ring and asking her to marry him and Samantha, 23, immediately said yes.

One viewer wrote: “That was actually the cutest thing I’ve ever watched”, while another said: “Sam & Nicky, it’s hard to find love nowadays. U 2 are gorgeous & lucky to hav each other. Sooo cute! Beautiful [sic]”.


We couldn’t agree more!
