Rock star Jack White stunned fans in Detroit Friday when he proposed to his girlfriend and got married on stage. 

“I’ve got a little question for you, Olivia Jean,” White asked his girlfriend and fellow musician Olivia Jean while on stage at the Masonic Temple in his hometown of Detroit. “Will you marry me?”

The musician, best known for his band The White Stripes, and his girlfriend had been singing the 2001 song “Hotel Yorba” when he popped the question, The Detroit News reported. He resumed the song after she said yes, beginning again with the song’s line: “Let’s get married.”

But the excitement didn’t end there. 

The couple was married on stage by Third Man Records co-founder Ben Swank during the encore portion of the concert, the Detroit Free Press reported. The respective bass players for White and Jean served as the best man and maid of honor, while White’s mother, Teresa Gillis, served as a witness. 

This is White’s third marriage and details on how long he had been dating Jean are unclear. Both are Detroit natives
