Federal New Democratic Party Leader Jagmeet Singh let Canadians know Tuesday night that he is engaged to Gurkiran Kaur Sidhu.
Jagmeet Singh, proposed to girlfriend Gurkiran Kaur, an entrepreneur and fashion designer, with the proposal in front of several dozen friends and family members at a vegetarian restaurant where they had their first date.
Singh hardly ever opened his personal life diary after he was elected federal NDP leader, but social media posts in December made headlines after it was reported he and Kaur were engaged.
The couple confirmed that the engagement was instead a “rokha” — a traditional Punjabi ceremony held ahead of a wedding.
Singh also invited several members of the media, including The Canadian Press, to witness the surprise proposal Tuesday night, along with friends and family.
At the event, Singh pulled a ring out of his jacket pocket and got down on one knee to propose to Kaur. Nothing could be better than ending the wonderful event with an acceptance.
Within moments, the couple waded into the crowd and Kaur shouted, raising one hand in the air, “Every one, I’m engaged!”
Applauding his engagement ,Singh said he was excited about the engagement. “I’m super excited to take this step forward — to have a life and future together with my partner,” he said.
