Our hearts.

While crowds of My Chemical Romance fans gathered at Kilmainham Royal Hospital for the band’s highly-anticipated reunion tour this week, one man decided it was the perfect time to pop the question to his partner.

In a video shared on TikTok by user @jadehurley76, the happy couple can be seen kissing and hugging as the crowd surrounds them.

“The cutest propsosal ever,” the video’s title read.

It continued: “Was at MCR in Dublin and witnessed the cutest couple ever getting engaged and look at this lovely clip. I hope they see this video.”

Fellow fans took to the comments to congratulate the pair.

“I’m crying,” one person said.

“Go on the lad!” another wrote.

“Big congrats for them both,” a third added.

My Chemical Romance played two explosive shows in Dublin and Wednesday and Thurday this week, after kicking off their European tour in the UK on 17 May.

The couple’s engagement wasn’t the only memorable moment from the concerts, though.

Singer Gerard Way found himself in an awkward situation when he was met with intense booing from the crowd for mentioning the Queen of England.

After telling fans he was having some issues with his throat and vocal cords, the frontman said he’d keep singing no matter what. He added he wouldn’t even care if he lost his voice while playing for the Queen of England, and that he’d still “sing through shards”.

When his comments elicited boos and a “f**k the Queen” chant, he looked embarrassed and a little confused, quickly moving on to something else.

On the second night, the singer addressed the response, saying he had just mentioned her as an example of a person most people would be nervous to perform in front of. He won’t be making that mistake again!
