Watch: ABC News Reporter James Longman Proposes to Boyfriend in Adorable Vid

Monday July 6, 2020

ABC News reporter James Longman announced last week that he is engaged to his partner Alex Brannan.

Taking to Instagram, the London journalist shared a lovely video of the proposal, which took place at his home.

"We're engaged," Longman, 34, captioned the post. "I asked Alex in the garden while his mum filmed, trying to stop his nephew from running over to us. And then the rest of the family came over. There was quite a lot of crying."

The video shows his fiancé's mother can be heard explaining to a young boy what is going on: "James has just asked him to marry him, darling."

People magazine notes that Longman reflected on his coming out on National Coming Out Day back in October. He wrote a moving easy in which he said he came out to friends at 16 and told his mother in an email when he was 24.

Longman recently opened up about reporting from Chechnya and reporting on the purge of gay men and women.
