The fitness diva Shilpa Shetty Kundra shares a beautiful bond with her husband Raj Kundra, and the actress has time and again confessed how the duo keeps on pulling each other's leg even today. Not only this, Shilpa is so much in love with Raj, once she was quoted saying, 'Why Raj did not meet me earlier.' Isn't that truly adorable?

From their social media PDA to confessing affection towards each other in front of the media, Shilpa has never shied away from sharing her feelings for Raj. Now in a talk show with Shibani Dandekar, which has surfaced online and taken the internet by storm, the actress is seen confessing how Raj's proposal at the Eiffel Tower in Paris swept her off her feet.

When Shibani asked about the Eiffel Tower proposal, Shilpa was quoted saying, "I was in Paris for the Karl Lagerfeld show. Raj flew down and proposed to me. He had booked out the whole banqueting hall at the Grand. A bit OTT. He had these violinists playing. He conned me into it. He told me, 'We're having lunch at a friend's place, so just dress up well.' My sister told me to wear red, so it was already planned. He had told me from Mumbai that we will be going to this really cool place but I had no clue. He had already asked my parents."

Raj planned a fancy meal for Shilpa and proposed with a diamond ring during the last course - dessert. "It was a five-carat diamond ring and I might sound really materialistic but I was like, 'It's just five carats.' I took a while to say yes because I was like, 'This is not what I imagined.' No, no, I am just joking. Because I took two seconds more, he was like, 'The wedding ring will be bigger.' So I said yes there and then. He knew that I have always wanted to go to the Eiffel Tower. I have shot in Paris, I have shot beneath the Eiffel Tower, but I had decided that I would go up only with the man I end up with."

Isn't that funnily romantic? Watch the video here:
