Hollywood's finest are known for their epic proposals. There are always rose petals everywhere, champagne, and over-the-top surprises. Some even take it to the next level with private helicopters! We couldn't help but wish we were the ones in these enchanted tales too.
While we couldn't witness these romantic moments, we’ll settle on reminiscing on these adorable stories of seven pairs of celebrity couples.
Giuliana and Bill Rancic
Giuliana spends her days interviewing celebrities on the red carpet, which makes total sense that Bill gave her a glamorous proposal. He surprised Giuliana with a helicopter ride over Chicago, complete with champagne and pizza from her favorite pizzeria. When they were high above, looking down at the romantic Chicago skyline all lit up, Bill popped the question.
Gisele Bündchen and Tom Brady
Brady and Bündchen first met through a friend at a party and started dating in 2006. Flying high above New Jersey on Christmas Eve, the NFL quarterback took the supermodel on a private jet ride with dozens of white roses and champagne on board according to the New York Post. Another surprise? Gisele's parents were also on the plane to witness their daughter's memorable moment.
Eva Longoria and Jose Antonio Baston
Baston swept Longoria off her feet with a dazzling desert proposal while they were on vacation in Dubai. The television executive decroated a romantic lounge filled with patterned pillows and Persian rugs right in the middle of the desert dunes, where he proposed to Longoria with a jaw-dropping ruby ring. It definitely deserves a huge round of applause!
Jenny Slate and Ben Shattuck
Ben Shattuck proposed to actress Jenny Slate in the simplest yet sweetest way possible. It took place in an abandoned castle in southern France, where the art curator organized a picnic for Slate and asked her to marry him. "I screamed yes!" revealed Slate in an Instagram post, saying the moment made her feel "happy and free."
George and Amal Clooney
George had planned to propose to his true love after dinner one night. When he blew out the candle and asked Amal to get the lighter in the box behind her, she could only find a ring! She was so shocked that when the actor got down on one knee, all she could do was stare at the ring and gushed out 'Oh, my God’. The story goes that George Clooney was on his knees for 25 minutes waiting for her to give him an answer. And the rest, as you know, is history.
Will and Jada Pinkett Smith
The pair have been married for 21 years, yet Will Smith's proposal was shockingly low-key — but that only made it all the more romantic. "We were just lying there, going to sleep. He looked over at me, and said, 'Hey, we might be real good married. You wanna marry me?' Unplanned. No ring. Not the classic proposal. I said yes," Jada recalled how Will popped the question.
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry
In their first joint interview after announcing their engagement, Harry shared that he knew Markle was the one the very first time they met. Markle and Harry then revealed they had been cooking dinner together when Harry, unable to wait until they'd sat down to eat, surprised his co-chef by getting down on one knee and presenting her with a gorgeous custom sparkler. “We were literally making Ina Garten's classic roast chicken when I said YES to him.” Markle laughed.
