“I fell in love with a very beautiful woman a few years ago, 'I want to embarrass her as much as I can. I've been in love with you since the day I met you and I will for the rest of my life, and I hope that you'll marry me. One, will you make sweet passionate love to me for the rest of my life?”
Matteo then stood on stage and replied:-
“Forevermore. Will you love my children forevermore?”
Soon after Michael said “Yes,” Matteo screamed:-
“I'm going to marry this motherf***er!”
