Nick Offerman Just Revealed the Hilarious Way He Proposed to Megan Mullally

It involves lots of fake rings and a few over-excited ducks.

Nick Offerman, 47, and Megan Mullally, 59, are one of the cutest couples in Hollywood. The comedy duo, who have been married for 15 years—and have starred together as a raucously dysfunctional couple on Parks and Recreation—have kept the laughs going for fans on social media since the show ended.

They clearly have the same exact sense of humor.

Their puzzle antics are historic.

Like Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively, they love roasting each other.

And they aren't exactly shy about letting the world know their personal life is bomb, lending credence to recent research dispelling the myth that older people don't get down.

Now, in a new interview with The Guardian, the funnyman gave details on how he proposed to Mullally, and he couldn't have described it any better:

"It was in Regent's Park [London] that I bent my knee and presented my hand-carved, walnut, heart-shaped ring box. Magically, the ducks on the water and birds in the air began to furiously copulate all around us. Something made the moment bigger than the two of us. It was fated by Mother Nature."

You can't deny that the proposal, along with the way he described it, is Ron Swansonesque to a tee.

In a 2013 interview with Playboy, Swanson explained that he had actually fake-proposed to Mullally three times before doing it for real:

"Offerman brought three disposable rings fabricated by the 'Will & Grace' costume designer in order to joke-propose to Mullally three different times [in Paris]. In succession, he dropped fake rings down a Parisian grate, from the top of the Eiffel Tower and off the Pont Neuf, the city's oldest standing bridge. 'I thought it was hilarious,' says Mullally. 'But the rings got progressively bigger, and for a moment I thought the last one might be real.'"

Never change, you two.
