Imagine finding out that you'd been proposed to without even realizing it. Now imagine that you'd been proposed to 148 times without realizing it. Such was the case with Claire Bramley, who learned of the dozens of hidden photo proposals when Ryan Smith finally got down on one knee and popped the question.

The face-to-face proposal followed a succession of photos (yes, 148 of them) taken over the course of five months in which Smith would strategically place a card with the words "Will you marry me?"

"I had no clue, I was totally oblivious to it all," Bramley, who is pregnant with their child, told Metro UK. "He told me he was taking the pictures to create memories for the baby so I just let him get on with it." But getting on with it wasn't so easy, Smith said. "Sometimes she wanted to see the pictures so I had to take more than one -- one with the card and one without."

He finally gave up the ghost on Christmas morning, when he gathered the photos all together on his laptop, got down on one knee and gave her "a bit of a spiel."

Of course, she said yes.
