8 Swoon-Worthy Celebrity Proposals
We love an over-the-top, flashy celeb proposal, but we also don't hate the more reserved and intimate ones. Here, eight swoon-worthy celebrity proposals with all the feels.
Eva Longoria and Jose Antonio Baston
In December 2015, Longoria's media mogul boyfriend, Jose Antonio Baston, risked dirtying his perfectly tailored suit in the Dubai sand and got down on one knee to pop the question with a stunning ruby-and-diamond ring.
Sofia Vergara and Joe Manganiello
There is no such thing as too handsome…not even for Sofia Vergara. In December 2014, Joe Manganiello popped the question to the Modern Family actress in Kauai, Hawaii, but not before translating his proposal speech to Spanish to make the Colombian native feel right at home. Qué romántico!
Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka
Suit up, gentlemen! Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka hid their engagement for over five years and revealed their commitment following New York State's legalization of gay marriage in 2011.
Ciara and Russell Wilson
Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson has some serious game…literally. The pro-footballer wined and dined his girl Ciara in March 2016 on a romantic vaca to Seychelles. He got down on one knee right as a gorgeous sunset rolled in. Swoon.
Prince William and Kate Middleton
During a trip to Kenya in October 2010, the Duke of Cambridge used his late mother’s 18-carat sapphire-and-diamond engagement ring to woo the soon-to-be Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton. Who could say no to a ring and proposal fit for a queen?
George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin
George Clooney’s engagement to Amal Alamuddin in April 2014 didn’t quite go as planned. It appears the Up in the Air actor’s proposal plans were a tad complicated. George made a home-cooked meal, lit a few candles and tucked the gigantic rock inside a small matchbox. After "accidentally" blowing out a candle, he asked Amal to relight it. But it took more effort than expected to get Amal to choose matches—instead of a lighter—and reveal the ring.
John Cena and Nikki Bella
John Cena put a ring on it… in the ring. The professional wrestler got down on one knee during WrestleMania and proposed to his longtime girlfriend Nikki Bella. Oh, and that 4.5 carat rock? Excellent choice. (Tiffany & Co., we’re looking at you.)
Matthew McConaughey and Camila Alves
Matthew McConaughey’s proposal to Camila Alves was a family affair. The Dazed and Confused actor planned a Christmas morning proposal and placed the ring—which he wrapped several times to disguise the shape—under the tree. Upon opening the gift, Camila was all, “Alright, alright, alright.”
