CEDAR FALLS (KWWL) - Cedar Falls veteran Taylor Morris and his long-time girlfriend Danielle Kelly are engaged.

Taylor Morris is the Navy EOD from Cedar Falls who lost his arms and legs while serving in Afghanistan in May of 2012. During his recovery, Danielle Kelly was always seen by his side.

Pictures of their love story captured the national spotlight, and the couple even found themselves on the Today show.

On Sunday, Kelly announced the engagement on the Taylor Morris blog.

“After almost 9 years of dating we are TYING THE KNOT!!!” Kelly wrote.

Kelly goes on to describe a spontaneous picnic lunch date.

“I opened the ice cream and inside was a ring box. At first, I thought it was a big piece of chocolate. Then at a second glance, I notice(d) it was a box!!

"I grabbed the box, opened it, it was the perfect ring, and Taylor asked me. I was so shocked that I think it took me a minute or two to finally say YES.”
