In celebration of the week of love leading up to Valentine’s Day, we decided to list down 10 super romantic celebrity proposals that sent the butterflies in our tummies soaring!
1. Kanye West to Kim Kardashian – Kanye West pulled out all the stops when he proposed to his lady love! He popped the question on Kim Kardashian’s 33 birthday in front of her family and friends at AT&T Park in San Francisco. After a surprise scoreboard proposal, the rapper whipped out a 15-karat Lorraine Schwartz and got down on one knee while a 50 piece orchestra played Lana Del Rey’s Young & Beautiful in the background.
2. Tom Cruise to Katie Holmes – 10 years and a bitter divorce do not dim the fact that Tom’s proposal to Katie Holmes remains one of the most romantic ever! Cruise popped the question to Katie Holmes on top of the Eiffel Tower, when they were having a candlelit dinner at Le Jules Verne.
3. Nick Cannon to Mariah Carey – Nick Cannon proposed to Mariah Carey not once but twice. Cannon first popped the question while on the rooftop of her Manhattan apartment. He presented her with a 17-carat diamond hidden inside a candy ring pop. A few days later, they jetted off for a romantic helicopter ride around the Empire State Building, during which Cannon proposed again.
4. Matthew McConaughey to Camila Alves – Matthew McConaughey presented Camila Alves with a rose-cut Cathy Waterman engagement ring – but she had to work to get it. He gave it to her as a Christmas gift and buried it inside multiple boxes. When Alves opened the last box, the ‘Magic Mike’ star got down on one knee and popped the question.
5. Ben Stiller to Christine Taylor – While actress Christine Taylor was away, Ben Stiller snuck into her house and decorated it with rose petals and candles. When she returned, Ben proposed, but soon realized he forgot the ring at his apartment! Luckily, she still said yes.
6. Pink to Carey Hart – After four years of dating, singer Pink proposed to Carey Hart in June 2005 via a pit board during one of his races in Mammoth Lakes, California. She was holding a sign saying, “Will you marry me? Serious!”
7. Jordan Bratman to Christina Aguilera – While on vacation in Carmel, CA, music executive Jordan Bratman proposed to pop singer Christina Aguilera in a hotel room filled with rose petals and gift boxes, each with a present and a self-penned poem. After she opened the last box (which contained a five-carat ring), Bratman got down on one knee and asked her to be his wife.
8. Abhishek Bachchan to Aishwarya Rai Bachchan – While on work trips to New York, Jr. Bachchan would often stand on his hotel’s balcony and fantasize about getting married to Aishwarya. When the duo traveled together to NYC for the premiere of Guru, Abhishek actually proposed to his lady love at the same hotel balcony. Now isn’t that cute!
9. Adam Levine to Behati Prinsloo – Adam Levine went old school and asked Behati’s dad for his daughter’s hand in marriage before popping the question to the Victoria’s Secret Angel. And when he did ask Behati, he was so nervous that he dropped on both knees instead of just one!
10. Seal to Heidi Klum – Though they’ve split up now, British singer Seal went all out while proposing to supermodel Heidi Klum, in a custom made igloo! He flew her out to an igloo decorated with flowers and a bed with satin sheets and proposed there!
