Never upstage a potty training toddler!

If you've ever needed proof that the old saying 'love is blind' is true, you'll want to watch this clip of 3-year-old Owen taking a whizz while his dad proposes marriage to his mom. 

Talk about an unforgettable moment. 

"She only wanted the two of us and the kids, it had to be recorded, and not done somewhere on holiday," Explained Owen's dad, Kevin Prztula, of his now fiancé's requests for the proposal location. 

"I chose the fountain because I needed someplace random that wouldn't give it away."

Fountains may now go down in history as the last place for a couple with children to go to when getting romantic. 

"I'm gonna pee outside," Owen can be heard saying to his oblivious parents who truly only had eyes for each other, only noticing what Owen was doing after mom Alyssa said yes. 

Taking it all in their stride, the couple has embraced the moment as "the spontaneous things in life we can look forward to as a family."

The real lesson? Never upstage a potty training toddler.
