  • On Friday, TV host and author Amanda Knox announced on Instagram that she and her boyfriend novelist Christopher Robinson are engaged to be married.
  • The proposal was sci-fi-themed and it caught Knox off guard.
  • The video began with her sewing in their home.
  • She is distracted by a loud sound. Outside, she finds what appears to be a glowing, smoking meteorite accompanied by a digital tablet that describes their love story. Knox is baffled.
  • “I had been thinking about this, but it’s already happened in the future,” Robinson said. “It’s happening now. I don’t have a ring, but I do have a big rock. Will you stay with me until the last star in the last galaxy burns out and even after that? Amanda Marie Knox, will you marry me?”
  • She said yes!
  • The engagement comes over a decade after Knox was accused of killing her roommate while studying abroad in Italy. She was found guilty and spent four years in prison, but the conviction was later acquitted.
  • Watch the full proposal below.
