‘I proposed a year and a bit ago and now we’re getting married. I’ve always known she’s the one I’ll end up with.’  

In November 2017,  the sports star pulled off a very public and elaborate proposal in a movie theatre in Melbourne. 

Callan got down on one knee in front of a jam-packed cinema to pop the question to his girlfriend.

‘It was understood the bride to be wanted a proposal to be in public,’ Radio host Ross Stevenson said on 3AW, after the proposal news broke.

Sun Theatre staff member Kris told Daily Mail Australia there was about 170 people packed into the cinema on the night of the proposal to watch Murder on the Orient Express.

‘It was absolutely gorgeous, [Mr Ward] had pre-planned it all,’ Kris said. ‘It was very romantic, her mum was here as well and she didn’t know anything was happening either.’

‘He quickly went to bathroom and changed into a suit, came back and grabbed Ruby, took her down to the front of the cinema.’

With their special song playing and a photo of them on the screen, Callan proposed to his bride-to-be.
