Augusta, GA -

An everyday conversation prompted a late movie star to buy a couple a wedding gift.
the jewelry store just clued the couple in that paul walker paid the bill for their engagement ring. Pat Harvey reports.

"It's still to this day the most generous thing anyone has ever done for me," says.
Victorville couple, kristen and kyle upham never got that perfect ring when the quickly married before kyle left for his army deployment to iraq. but in 2004 they say actor paul walker made that wish come true while the couple was shopping for a ring in Santa Barbara.

"I noticed there was someone else in there but didn't give it much thought and we started looking at rings and what not and he kept wanting me to go bigger and i kept saying 'no look at the prices."

Kyle struck up a conversation with walker and figured out who he was."When we were talking you know we exchanged names you know, kind of talked about what each of us did and when he found out kyle had just come back i remember seeing the look in his face, he it kind of transformed."

Kyle and Krysten left the store without a ring but a short time later the salesperson called them back.

"One of the ladies came out holding a bag and just simply said, 'here's your ring' and i think both of our mouths dropped. and i think after a couple of minutes of shell shocked it finally sunk in and we were like well how, who bought it? she just smiled at me and said it was better not to say.

The couple recently figured out who purchased the ring after the jewelry shared the story with reporters following walker's death.
