Though many of us turn to Adele's music after a break up, one gay couple flipped the script and got engaged at her concert in Copenhagen, Denmark this week, USA Today reports.

Adele invited Swedish fan Andre Soderberg, 18, and his boyfriend Simon Carlsson, 20, on stage Tuesday. Not long after joining her, Soderberg suddenly got down on one knee and popped the question to his partner -- in front of more than 10,000 attendees.

Of course, Adele adorably freaked out at the proposal, which you can watch below. The "Hello" singer also made headlines after joking (?) about being the couple's surrogate.

"Should I be your surrogate if you have children? I'd love to have a baby with someone Swedish," she reportedly said at the show.

Speaking with The Sun, Soderberg said he was "thinking about asking [Carlsson] to marry me but when Adele invited us to the stage, it just happened."

"I thought, 'Why not now?'" he added.

"I had a plastic ring on which we had bought earlier in the day when we were buying costumes," he continued. "So, I took that ring and put it on his finger. What can I say? I just love him so much!"
