Today scientists revealed a new species of horned dinosaur elegantly named Regaliceratops peterhewsi.
Scrolling through the study, some keen eyes at Science noted something a little different in the acknowledgments.
Lead author Caleb M. Brown wrote this little passage:
C.M.B. would specifically like to highlight the ongoing and unwavering support of Lorna O'Brien. Lorna, will you marry me?
Best of all: The publisher, Cell Press, was totally into it.
"Current Biology is aware of the proposal and we are wishing the very best for the couple. I checked with several editors and this is a first for Current Biology as well as Cell Press," a spokesperson told Retraction Watch.
BuzzFeed has reached out to Brown for an update.
Science reports that she said yes! Congrats to the couple!
