Wilson, a former student of St. Thomas of Villanova, answered “yes” to a prom date request from student Stephanie Dufour, according to CBC News. Dufour said, “I want to have a hotter prom date than all my friends, so I was wondering if you would go to prom with me.”
“Usually we get weekends off, so if I can swing it, I’ll come back, and I’ll go to prom with you,” Wilson responded to a room full of applause.
Wilson was visiting the school and hosted a question-and-answer session.
Dufour was shocked by the answer saying she thought Wilson “was just going to shrug it off and start laughing. I was definitely not expecting that answer.”
