Congratulations to E! News anchor Jason Kennedy and his girlfriend, author and fashion blogger Lauren Scruggs, on their engagement! Kennedy proposed this past weekend to the survivor of a horrific plane propeller accident. Despite a long-distance relationship that spans from Dallas to L.A., the two have made it work since July 2013.
Kennedy flew to her hometown of Dallas and created a magical proposal outside of her apartment building. Aside from spelling out “Will you marry me” on the lawn, he filled her apartment with tulips. After he said to come down because he had a question to ask, he sealed the deal with a ring.
What girl could resist that?! Of course she said yes!
On a night in December 2011, Scruggs walked into a plane propeller after flying around to look at Christmas lights. She had to have her left hand amputated and was left with severe facial injuries. At the time, she was running a fashion blog called LOLO, but she now runs her own online magazine.
Scruggs wrote of her doubts about finding love in her book, “Still LoLo: A Spinning Propeller, a Horrific Accident, and a Family’s Journey of Hope.”
I was sure no guy would ever think I was attractive again, much less would want to marry me.”
But she eventually found love with Kennedy. After seeing her interview on Dateline NBC, he recalls “looking up at the TV and saying I would love to marry a girl like that. I was just so moved by her and her story, and I thought she was hot, too, so that’s always an added benefit.”
I am so so so happy for this couple! I’ve been a fan of theirs for a little while and I can’t wait for this wedding. Congratulations!
