NRL Player Jack Wighton's Proposal Goes Viral Thanks To Typo In Instagram Post

You can never afford to slip-up on the internet.

Never, ever.

So when NRL star Jack Wighton had a small typo in his latest Instagram post, social media users were on hand to quickly remind him of his error.

The Canberra Raiders five-eighth managed to capture the beautiful moment he proposed to his new fiancee in front of their daughters while also announcing that they'd be expecting their third child.

Wanting to share the big news with his family, friends and footy fans, Wighton took to Instagram to post a carousel of pictures.

But unfortunately for the happy couple, Wighton had a small typo in his caption that instantly got the attention of his 70,000 followers.

"Welcoming my new Finance & Baby number Three," he said in the Instagram post.

And as we all know, all it takes is just one tiny slip-up online for people to come piling in.

Popular Instagram account Celeb Spellcheck was the first to pick up on the innocent mistake, re-sharing the post with the caption: "Congratulations on your loan approval!"

One user commented: "I wonder if he got a good rate."

While another added: "Westpac or ANZ?"

It was an honest mistake from the Dally M Medal winner, who later edited the caption so that it read "fiancee" instead.

Damn auto-correct again, aye Jackie?
