A video in which a little boy battling cancer got down on one knee and proposed to his favourite nurse has melted hearts around the world.

Little Gideon Robinson (5) from San Diego summoned the courage to ask nurse Sarah Richards to marry him as he received treatment for leukaemia  at Rady Children’s Hospital in California.

The teary-eyed nurse happily accepted the homemade ring and admitted she was thrilled to be Gideon’s hospital husband.

"Sarah is really nice and pretty and always gets me Legos because she knows I love playing with them," said Gideon speaking to TODAY.com.

"I wanted to marry her to make her laugh like she makes me laugh," Gideon said.
