AceShowbiz - Noah Galloway proposed to his girlfriend, Jamie Boyd, on the Monday, May 11 live show of "Dancing with the Stars". The army veteran did it shortly after his performance of a Viennese waltz set to "Time of My Life".
After his performance, host Erin Andrews invited Boyd, an Army Reserve specialist, to the backstage. As they were at the backstage, Galloway told Boyd while holding her hand, "The song, the 'Time of My Life,' you've given it to me."
"You know, I've got to do this here, because... this," he said before bending his knee in front of his girlfriend. "Would you marry me?" Boyd was surprised as her 33-year-old boyfriend got down on his knee before her and asked the question. She said "yes" while nodding her head. The backstage got crowded as the other performers cheered and applauded them, expressing their joy. Boyd said, "I'm speechless, and I'm never speechless!"
"That was a moment when I knew I wanted to propose to her on the show. I always thought if I made it to the finale I would propose, but I realized the competition is so stiff I couldn't let the opportunity pass me by in case this is the end of the road for me on the show," Galloway told PEOPLE.
Galloway, who lost his arm and leg during war, is one of four contestants running in the semifinals of the dancing competition show. He is partnered with Sharna Burgess.
