In honor of Veterans Day, Good Morning America helped USO Coast Guardsman of the Year, Sam Peikert, pull off a big surprise for his girlfriend – an on-air marriage proposal featuring Jason Derulo singing "Marry Me."
"I'm still in shock, definitely," says Jackie Fairchild on GMA Live!, after having gladly agreed to marry Peikert.
"They came to me, they started putting a mike on, and my makeup, and I didn't think I was going to be on TV. I was adamant on not being [on TV], and then, when I got into the green room, they just pushed me out there," Fairchild explains.

Ciara may still be glowing from her recent engagement to rapper-producer Future, but she's already well into planning mode.
"It's going to be two parts," she told PEOPLE at the People's Choice Awards nominations announcement last week. "We're both from Atlanta and we have so many family and friends … it's going to be hard to get everybody in one place, so we're going to do a celebration part and a wedding."
Though she expects the engagement to be a short one, the Grammy winner, 28, is still making sure every little detail is picture perfect on her big day.

Aras Baskauskas may have been sent to Redemption Island on last week's episode of Survivor, but things are certainly looking up in his personal life.
During an romantic sunset on the beach, Baskauskas surprised his girlfriend of four years, Christy Petersen, with an engagement ring.
Petersen, a model and clothing designer, had just finished a photo shoot on Saturday afternoon in Big Sur for her women's line, DAWN. At the end of the shoot, she and Baskauskas, 32, sat on a rocky outcrop to watch the sun set into the Pacific Ocean. As dusk fell, Baskauskas dropped on one knee and proposed, presenting her with a handmade ring by jewelry designer Jessica Seaton. The ring, set in rose gold, sports a sliced diamond surrounded by smaller diamonds.

Who needs months of planning? All Kaley Cuoco needs is a veil, a tennis-ball necklace and about 30 seconds – and she's married!
That's how it goes down in a segment Thursday on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, in which DeGeneres surprises The Big Bang Theory actress by bringing in her fiancé, Ryan Sweeting, and orchestrating a quickie wedding for them on stage.
Cuoco, 27, laughs hysterically as her tennis-player beau sheepishly asks at one point: "This isn't legal, right?"

Walking into the after-party for her Saturday Night Live hosting gig in the wee hours of Nov. 3, Kerry Washington did something shocking: She grabbed the hand of her husband, former 49ers cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha, and held it in public.
For the very private star, who wed in secret this past June after a three-year courtship she'd kept quiet even from friends, it may be out of character. But then again, she has a lot to be happy about at the moment: her loving marriage, her popular TV series, Scandal, and a baby on the way.
"Kerry's in it to win it, and she's winning," her friend Joe Reinstein, who worked with her during Barack Obama's two presidential campaigns, tells PEOPLE in its new issue, on stands Friday. "She deserves everything."
