Tom Hanks Helped With Marriage Proposal At Texas Book Festival

Oscar-winning actor and author Tom Hanks was in the Lone Star state over the weekend.

The Hollywood A-lister was in Austin for a sold-out reading of his new book "Uncommon Type: Some Stories" at the Texas Book Festival, followed by a Q&A.

At one point he told the crowd he was bored of taking their questions and wanted to ask one himself. Hanks then pulled out a piece of paper and said that a man in the crowd, Ryan McFarling, had a question for a woman named Nikki Young. Hanks said the question was: "Nikki, will you marry me?"

The couple went on stage, McFarling got down on one knee and gave Young a ring. Hanks then hugged the newly engaged woman and offered his best wishes to the couple.
