HOUSTON -

Two days before Easter, it isn't that odd to see a bunny on ice skates doing laps at the Galleria ice rink.

People were watching but no one was paying much attention, including Karla Hercules. She had no idea her boyfriend, Ezequial Felix, was inside the suit and poised to pop the big question.

"I didn't know what to think," Hercules said. "I was like, 'OK,' then I seen his walk and I was like, 'OK.'"

Hercules and Feliz have waited a long time for this moment. 

They've been together for 12 years and have four kids. Hercules told Local 2 she wasn't growing impatient and Felix said now is the right time. 

"That's how life goes sometimes," he said. "We were just trying to move forward and do things right."

There are no wedding plans, yet. They both said they hope to tie the knot sometime next year.
