JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

On Wednesday, the University of Mississippi Medical Center's ENT and Communicative Sciences Department shared a heartwarming video on their Facebook page.

One of their patients received a gift of a lifetime - and another huge surprise on top of an already emotional moment.  

She was finally able to hear again thanks to a cochlear implant. But it's one of the first things she heard after the implant was activated that made the moment even more special.

The patient, already overcome with emotion from having her hearing restored, got an even bigger surprise when her boyfriend got down on one knee and proposed to her.

"Well baby, I wanted to make one of the first things you hear, because I love you so much and you’re my best friend baby, I wanted to make the first thing you hear was me asking you to marry me," he told her.

And, of course, she said yes!

UMMC ENT and Communicative Sciences, posted the video to their Facebook page and said:

"We just could not wait any longer to share this amazing story with you. One of our patients received a life changing surprise after having her cochlear implant activated. 
I cannot imagine anything better to hear for the first time! Huge shout out to our staff and the newly engaged couple!"
