As you may know, robin is pregnant, and, well, I'm sure most of you know I'm the father. But what you might not know is that I'm in love with robin. And I'm in love with our baby. And I'm in love with the life that -- that we can have.
Now, I never claimed either one of us were perfect. In fact, my faults are well-documented. All you have to do is get on robin's blog and you'll see what a screw-up I've been. What, you might ask, do I love about robin? Well, the truth is, you can't quantify love. But I'm going to try. Robin -- robin's amazing. She's beautiful. And she's smart. She's so smart that it scares me sometimes. Because when you're with someone that intelligent, well, you have to step up. And she's warm and compassionate, and she's stubborn sometimes. So stubborn that it borders on compulsion. And she's going to kill me for saying this, but -- She's incredibly tender. And she cries at the drop of a hat. It's pretty adorable. Especially now that she's pregnant, she's hormonal. But what I love the most about robin is her unbelievable strength. She faces her fears and she stares them down. She's been scared, truth is, for some time. And you've overcome your fears, and I'm -- well, I think that I'm your last fear. So I'm here to tell you that -- not to be scared any more. Because I'm in this for the long haul. Whatever that means. And we can face our fears together. Me and you. As a family. As a husband and wife. So, robin, hey -- Say you'll marry me.
I want to spend the rest of my life with you, sharing everything it has to offer -- the good, the bad, and just being a family, loving each other.
Before I met you, i thought my life was great. But you made me realize what i was missing. You believe in me. You make me better than I ever thought possible. You just -- you make my life more. And we might not always agree, but even when we don't agree, there's always -- always mutual respect and trust. And that's a deeper connection than I ever thought possible. Because you showed me what it means to commit to something. You showed me with your love, your courage, your fearlessness, your decision to have a baby -- Our baby, your willingness to forgive my many mistakes. I know our life's not always going to be perfect, and there's going to be ups and downs. But there's no one in this world that I would rather do all those things with than you. So -- robin, will you do me the honor -- will you marry me?
