New Idea reported that Dan persuaded NBA superstar Patrick Mills to organise the proposal during a basketball match at the Sydney Entertainment Centre.

"Basketball first brought us together, and it's huge in both our lives, so it seemed a great way to surprise Marni and make the proposal really special" said Dan.
