As you may be aware, the highlight of Monday night's Emmys ceremony was when producer and director Glenn Weiss proposed to his partner live on stage.

Weiss had just collected an Emmy for Outstanding Directing for a Variety Special when he got down on one knee and asked his partner Jan Svendson to marry him.

Well, in case you were itching to hear more details on the how, when and why of the proposal, Jimmy Kimmel - who has worked with Weiss many times in the past - interviewed the pair on his show last night.

Weiss revealed that since his mother passed away recently, it had given him "a new perspective on life" and that he realised a week or two ago that he "wanted to do something."
