We can’t help but swoon when we see these celebs giddy as they pop the question. The past year has made us all focus on love being the most important thing to hold onto and nothing gets in its way. There’s certainly been a lot of love in lockdown!
Actor Joe Manganiello says “You only get one chance to do it, and if you’re gonna do it , you’ve gotta do it right so there’s a lot of planning that goes into it”
Actor Will Smith says about his proposal over 2 decades ago: “It’s really weird when you live the kind of lifestyle that we live: so simplicity becomes the jewel.”
There are too many romantic stories to chose from but take note guys and gals on how our Hollywood hero’s mastered these pivotal moments…
Swoon worthy Lockdown Proposals
Lily Collins and Charlie McDowell
Lilly got engaged to Charlie near the end of 2020 while they were taking a road trip in a beautiful mountain backdrop in the middle of nowhere. Lily let us in on their secret on Instagram saying “I’ve been waiting my lifetime for you and I can’t wait to spend our lifetime together.” Thank goodness he got it photographed!
Leigh Anne Pinnock and Andre Gray
Leigh Anne’s boyfriend and footballer Andre swept her off her feet during the lockdown whilst celebrating their fourth anniversary. Andre covered their garden in fairy lights and set up an intimate outdoor sofa and no doubt spoiled her with affection. She shared photos from that moment on Instagram with the words through tears “my world is literally complete”.
Stacey Solomon and Joe Swash
Planning a surprise to be different and out of the blue could maybe make our future brides suspicious. But instead, going for a walk in the same place on a seemingly ordinary day is what Stacey experienced in winter of 2020. What she thought was her routine turned out to be trees smothered in white roses and her beau getting down on one knee which blew her mind as we saw in her emotional Instagram stories. Very cute!
Jordan banjo and Naomi Courts
After spending 5 years together Jordan took the plunge and set up such a romantic proposal. On the beach in the Maldives he had a sign in the water light up “will you marry me?” Which made her feel like the luckiest woman in the world. What more could you want?!
Classic Celebrity Proposals
You must have heard of these before (and I thought we‘d chose couples who are still together) how the romance never dies and we love to reminisce.
Joe Manganiello proposed to Sophia Vergara on a vacation in Hawaii. He’d worked hard at Learning Spanish for her. “I had looked at every ring in the world, and this is the ring that I wanted. I had a whole speech prepared in Spanish. I proposed to her on one knee in Spanish with the sun going down. It was awesome.” Sophia describes it even more beautifully by saying how it was perfect and she even looked up and saw a rainbow.
José Antonio Bastón and Eva Longoria
There’s just something about a holiday proposal! José proposed to Eva while on vacation in Dubai. He had apparently planned the proposal for six months which took place in a desert, along with a beautiful intimate picnic set up and even with camels around. Clearly he knew how to please his missus.
Pink decided to scrap tradition and propose Carey Hart herself. (We love that!) In the middle of one of his racing competitions, she stood on the sideline with a whiteboard reading, “Will you marry me?” He saw as he sped part and on his second lap around the track, he sped right up to Pink and dropped out of the race to kiss her! Unforgettable.
Ludacris and Eudoxie Mbouguiengue
In 2014 Rapper Ludacris proposed to his girlfriend as the couple flew to Costa Rica. Eudoxie looked out the window and saw that he had arranged to have her name and “Will you marry me?” written in the grass. Timing would have had to be perfect and he pulled it off (lucky he spelt her name right too).
The possibilities are endless and there’s definitely a proposal out there perfect to suit you two as a couple. It takes a lot of thought and even if it’s something simplistic it’s a beautiful moment that will be remembered forever.
