When Jason Lord donated to Lauren Parsekian’s charity, The Kind Campaign, he had no idea how generously her husband, Breaking Bad star Aaron Paul, would pay him forward.
Aaron Paul is the favorite actor of Lord’s girlfriend, Jackie Prater, and when he discovered that, he decided to help Lord propose to her.
Lord took Prater out for a night, and was in the middle of performing Mr. Big’s 1991 ballad “To Be With You” — an inside joke between the couple — when the room when dark and Paul’s head appeared on the wall.
“Hi Jackie,” he said. “I hope all’s well there in Chicago. I just wanted to send you a message on behalf of my good friend Jason — I think you know him — who I understand has a very important question to ask you.”
