As the team prepared to scrub in and enter the operating theatre, Jarryd had other plans in mind.
Minutes before his partner Caitlyn’s caesarean section, Jarryd informed the Monash Health team that he was going to propose to Caitlyn after the procedure. The team got right down to business to make this happen.
As Caitlyn was holding her new son Callum to her chest, John Legend’s All of Me, began to play from a Bluetooth speaker and Jarryd dropped to one knee.
Completely shocked by the proposal, but absolutely thrilled, Caitlyn said yes!
Jarryd asked Caitlyn’s father for his blessing in April, and what better time to ask her to be his wife shortly after the arrival of their baby boy.
Congratulations to Caitlyn and Jarryd on both of these exciting milestones, and well done to our incredible team for pulling off this very special event!
