Their “Love Story” started at a Taylor Swift concert so it just made sense that they would get engaged there.

The singer posted a series of photos Friday on her Instagram showing her in between a fan who proposed to his girlfriend during the meet and greet at her Philadelphia concert.

“They walk into the meet and greet and he says, ‘We met 5 years ago at the Red Tour’ and then….. ,” The caption read with Swift jokingly referring to herself as #thirdwheel.

Swift didn’t identify the couple but the Twitter account @TSphilaPROPOSAL documented “Anthony + Stephanie – I PROPOSED IN FRONT OF TAYLOR SWIFT 7/13/18 DURING #RepTourPhilly.”

According to a tweet on the account, Anthony had been planning the proposal since June.

“I want to give my girlfriend the proposal of her dreams! Help me spread the word so Taylor can see this,” the tweet said. “I know Taylor can make this night unforgettable. #ReputationTourPhillyProposal @taylorswift13 @taylornation13.”

There is also a tweeted photo of the couple on the fateful day they met five years ago.

The pair are such die hard Swifties that they returned Saturday for her second night concert in Philadelphia — this time wearing T-shirts featuring their proposal pics with the singer.

“We are back… as an engaged couple! #RepTourPhilly @taylornation13 @taylorswift13,” a tweet featuring the photos read.

President Harry Truman said: “It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.” That spirit is alive and well at Fox 2. Our teamwork is on display each and every day.

Our news slogan is: “Coverage You Can Count On.” We quite frankly are too busy to worry about who gets the credit. Our main concern is serving the viewer.

We go where the stories take us. Whether it be Washington, D.C when a Belleville man opened fire during a congressional baseball game practice or to Puerto Rico where local Ameren crews restored power after more than 5 months in the dark.

Coverage You Can Count On means “Waking up your Day” with our top-rated morning show. From 4:00 am-10:00 am we are leading the way with breaking news. But our early morning crew also knows how to have some fun! Our strong commitment to the communities we serve is highlighted with our Friday neighborhood shows.

Our investigative unit consists of three reporters. Elliott Davis focuses on government waste, Chris Hayes is our investigative reporter, and Mike Colombo is our consumer reporter. They work in unison with the news department by sharing resources and ideas.

We continue to cover breaking news aggressively and relied on our seasoned journalists to make a difference with the stories we covered. The shooting of Arnold Police Officer Ryan O’Connor is just one example of that. Jasmine Huda was the only reporter who had exclusive access to the O’Connor family during his amazing rehabilitation in Colorado.

Last, but certainly not least, FOX 2 and KPLR 11 are committed to covering local politics. We host debates among candidates and have the most extensive presidential election coverage.
