Men are known to splash out hundreds of pounds to look just right when it comes to proposing to their sweethearts. But Foo Chen took romantic licence a bit too far when he dressed himself up as a giant sperm.
Foo, 29, then turned up with dozens of other 'sperm', and after a bizarre dance that saw him 'defeating' the other sperm in the hospital courtyard, Foo then dashed through the main entrance for his meeting with destiny.
But rather than being repelled by his strange get-up, his girlfriend Miaomiao Ping, 26, was overcome, and said yes straight away.
The odd couple hit the headlines in local newspapers in the city of Wuhan in Hubei Province, China, when Foo turned up at the local hospital where his girlfriend works as a nurse.
Porter Ken Li said: "I thought it was a joke at first, that or someone had gotten away from the local psychiatric hospital. This guy turns up looking liking a giant blob. I wouldn't have known he was supposed to be a sperm unless I was told.
"He said it was a private joke between his fiancee and him, and that she had dared him to dress up in the strange attire."
His girlfriend, a nurse in Kangjian Women's and Babies' Hospital, said: "We have been dating for two years and he told me he wanted to have children with me. I told him that I would want to get his sperm checked first at work, but it was a joke, and he certainly turned the tables on me.
"People were pretty surprised at the hospital when he came bounding down the corridors dressed like this. I think it was very brave of him and wonderfully romantic, and so I said yes."
He added: "I know people think I am mad but love makes you do crazy things."
