Taylor Swift’s Eras Tour has brought unforgettable moments to fans around the globe, but for one fan in Portugal, the concert turned into a life-changing experience. Beatriz Simões, a dedicated Swiftie, was live streaming the concert for her friends on social media when her boyfriend, Ricardo Matos, proposed to her during the iconic song ‘Love Story’. The Eras Tour stop at Estádio da Luz in Lisbon was already special, featuring a mix of Swift’s classic hits and new tracks, including the debut live performance of ‘The Tortured Poet’s Department’. However, it was the romantic proposal during ‘Love Story’ that stole the show.

Simões, 23, had no idea that her boyfriend, Ricardo Matos, 20, was planning to propose. As she streamed the concert live on Instagram, she captured the magical moment when Matos got down on one knee. The proposal took place during the eighth song of Swift’s 46-song setlist. As Taylor Swift sang the lyrics, “And said, ‘Marry me, Juliet, You’ll never have to be alone, I love you and that’s all I really know,” Matos seized the moment, surprising Simões completely.

In an interview with People, Simões recounted the moment with emotion. “He knelt to the ground and pulled out a ring and said, ‘Marry me, Juliet, you’ll never have to be alone,’ It was a total surprise.” Overwhelmed with joy, she immediately said yes, hugging him tightly while her phone continued to stream, capturing the background of the concert instead of the proposal itself. “I’m still in total shock. It was magical, and everyone was so happy,” she added, reflecting on the moment. Simões and Matos have been together for three years, having known each other for five.

The proposal occurred in section 3, row 5, with Taylor Swift continuing her performance unaware of the personal milestone her music had just highlighted. The event quickly became a topic of discussion among fans both at the concert and online. Although Simões couldn’t capture her own reaction due to the surprise, another concertgoer, Keren Noyman, managed to record the proposal from a different angle and shared the video on TikTok. Noyman, 28, who was present at the concert, changed her camera’s focus from the stage to the couple, capturing their joyous moment. “I felt jealous because I went with my boyfriend of eight years last time and got no proposal,” she jokingly told People, adding that she has always enjoyed watching such moments on screen and was thrilled to witness one in real life.

The video quickly garnered attention on social media, with fans expressing their happiness for the newly engaged couple. One user wrote, “Was so cute to watch on the stream, so happy for them.” Another commented on Simões’s dedication to live streaming, “She’s still live-streaming after the proposal…so sweet.” Yet another fan, who had been following Simões’s updates on X, added, “I don’t know the bride-to-be. I’ve read her tweets lately on X, so I thanked her for continuing with the live stream after this big moment in her life.”

This heartwarming proposal adds to the long list of memorable moments inspired by Taylor Swift’s ‘Love Story’. For years, the song has been a favorite at her concerts, often serving as the perfect backdrop for romantic gestures and proposals. The lyrics “marry me Juliet” have become synonymous with the hopes and dreams of countless fans. This latest proposal during the Eras Tour in Lisbon is a testament to the enduring impact of Swift’s music on her fans’ lives.
