A Surprise Proposal at ECM

ECM Nurses Assist With a Patient’s Engagement

On the day of his baby girl’s birth at Eliza Coffee Memorial Hospital, Tyler Melton asked his girlfriend, Desiree Kiplinger, to marry him, but he got a little help … from his new baby!

ECM nurses helped Tyler decorate a onesie for baby Aspen Tyler. Then, when the moment was right, he handed his newborn daughter over to the new mom.

Desiree says she was shocked and didn’t know he was going to propose at the hospital. She also said she’s been planning her wedding for a while and is excited to finally pick a date.

Aspen joins big sister, Kady.
