I got engaged to Slick LaRoo

Big Ben loves Slick LaRoo.
Both sides of the family got to watch the engagement LIVE at Fox 59 WXIN.

Wow. I am 35 years old and I am in love. On Tuesday, 2/5/13 I asked Slick LaRoo (a.k.a. Kelly Campbell) to marry me. Not just any proposal, a LIVE proposal on Fox 59 WXIN after our weekly DoItIndy Kid’s segment. I was confident of a yes, but I still had the inside jitters.

I won’t forget the day that @IndyVal, DoItIndy reporter told me she had a Twitter friend (@SlickLaRoo) I needed to meet. I really didn’t think much of it at the time. AND…things didn’t work out exactly like a regular relationship either… Kelly became a friend in October 2011, reporter for DoItIndy after that and we finally fell in love in the summer of 2012. I’m excited, a little anxious, scared and I want to be an amazing person for the woman I will wed very soon.

Many adventures will come in the future, and I can’t wait to share them with the love of my life.

If you would like to chat the wedding with us, please use the Twitter hashtag #WedBK.
