A photo of one woman proposing to another has gone viral online, but not for the reason you might think.

Newser reports that photographer Carlos Jair shared a photo on social media of his sister, Jessica Rodriguez, proposing to her longtime girlfriend, Chelsea Miller, at the Art Institute of Chicago.  Rodriguez reportedly got down on one knee and offered a ring, an act which was greeted by raucous applause from onlookers. 

But when Jair examined the photos he took, he noticed one in particular in which a woman in the background can be seen beaming with joy as she opens her mouth and holds a hand over her heart. 

 "It really made that photo even more special,” said Rodriguez.  

Jair posted the photo to Twitter with the caption: "My sister proposed to her GF today and look at that older woman's reaction."

The tweet has been shared over 100,000 times, and a video of the proposal has been viewed on YouTube more than 50,000 times. 

But not everyone is convinced of the third woman’s reaction.  One Twitter user wrote that “she looks more shocked by the absurdity than anything else.”

Take a look at the photo and decide for yourself what the woman was thinking.
