Erik Karlsson Proposed To His Girlfriend In The Cheesiest Way Possible


There’s really no limit to what can be thrown on top of a pizza. And for Ottawa Senators defenseman Erik Karlsson, the list of viable pizza toppings includes an engagement ring.

That’s right. Apparently there’s no situation in life that can’t be fixed — or knot that can’t be tied — by the holiest of pies.

Karlsson’s longtime girlfriend, Melinda Currey, posted a photo on her Instagram account Friday afternoon of a pepperoni pizza topped off by an engagement ring. Take a look.

In case there was ever any doubt that he's the one 🍕… #dreamproposal #dreamguy

Karlsson also took to Instagram to break the news, but omitted the pizza. Shame.

Couldn't be more proud to call her my forever. Without her I'm nothing. #shesaidyes

It’s unfair to completely eliminate the chances of Karlsson possessing some romantic creativity, so we’re going to assume this was all part of a cheesy inside joke.
