Congratulations to Sweet Home Alabama actor Josh Lucas and his wife Jessica! Their first child, Noah Rev Maurer, was born on Friday

Josh keeps a pretty low profile, especially when it comes to his personal life, but a few months ago, he told Jay Leno the story of how he got engaged and it’s definitely not your average date night.

While he was filming a movie up  in Big Sur, California, he came face-to-face with a mountain lion outside of his trailer.

“I hear, totally serious, two big breaths, and six feet above me, I see the very slight glint of the eyes of a huge [mountain lion] and I literally proceed to do what I had just read in the instructions,” Lucas explained to Leno. “And I started screaming and yelling and literally being as crazy as I could be, it padded off and just slowly went away and I worked my way into the trailer and I got in and I decided at that moment that this woman was the woman for me.”

Anyway, Carson was reminded of this story after hearing news of the couple’s baby being born and he posed a question to all the lady listeners of AMP Radio…would you accept a proposal from your significant other if they were only able to follow through with it after a near-death experience?

Would you be offended that it took something so drastic or do you think it’s sort of romantic? Producer Angie wasn’t on board with Josh’s proposal, but one of our callers, Liz in Redlands brought up a good point. Isn’t it sweet that his last thoughts before being devoured by a wild beast were about making a commitment to his girlfriend?

But not all of you were as optimistic as Liz. Take a listen:

  • What would you do if you were put in the same situation? Would you accept the proposal or would you be ticked off? Share with us below in the comments section!
