This gentleman had the cutest way of asking a girl with Down's syndrome to prom

By Catherine Wyatt


An 18-year-old has given us all unrealistic expectations of men with his prom proposal to a girl with Down’s syndrome.

Shaedon Wedel asked his best friend’s sister to go to prom with him by presenting her with flowers and a packet of Doritos – because who doesn’t love Doritos?

He even got a T-shirt made which said: “I know I’m NACHO typical Dorito but…I’m going to be CHEESY and ask: WILL YOU GO TO PROM WITH ME?”

Carlie has Down’s syndrome, and Shaedon said he wanted to do something special for her.

He said: “I decided on the Doritos theme because I have known her for seven years and there has not been a day that I have not seen her eat Doritos. She absolutely loves them!

“My main goal is to make her prom as special as possible.

“She says she wants to be a princess like Cinderella and it would mean everything to make her feel that way.”

Shaedon said he has known his best friend Carson and Carlie for years, and described them as “my second family.”

He added: “I want her to get that Cinderella Prom Dress and prom that she wants. She honestly deserves it so much.”

From the looks of it, 15-year-old Carlie really has met her prince for the night!
