Dario Ramirez was part of a group of Venezuelan deputies visiting the Vatican on Sunday when, to general amazement, he asked his girlfriend to marry him, Italian media outlets reported Wednesday.

In a video posted on the website of Il Fatto Quotidiano, a daily newspaper, Ramirez is seen speaking briefly with the pope before making his move, with Francis at first surprised but then smiling warmly at the couple as cheers erupted.
