There was an emotional surprise for air hostess Katerena Fale when she hopped off a flight at Auckland International Airport last Tuesday.

According to One News, Fale's partner Fou was waiting with friends and family and an important question: Will you marry me?

The pair married seven years ago in a registry office when Fale was 3-months pregnant, so her husband decided to fill the arrivals hall with a crowd and a spectacular rendition of More than words, a song made famous by Westlife and Frankie J.

"I just started crying my eyes out and thought, what the hell is happening?" Ms Fou told Story.

The couple now have three children, the eldest of whom accompanied her father while he popped the question.

She "kept telling me to just breathe," Fale said.
