Love is real, you guys.

Detroit rapper Payroll Giovanni proposed to longtime girlfriend and Detroit hair mogul Kendra Parker in front of friends last night. Parker's reaction was caught on camera — and it's amazing.

The proposal has the internet feeling some kind of way.

Congrats, Payroll and Kendra.
