Celebrity News: Wedding Proposals
Love... Hollywood Style! This celebrity news page is all about the rich and
famous and how they propose to their better half.
Unfortunately the golden days of Hollywood are gone and so is the classic
romance that we all associate with our favorite Hollywood legends. However,
there's a newer crop of celebrities who are trying their best to bring some of
that old sparkle back.
Not all of them have the charisma and character to pull off a legendary proposal but
some of them come pretty darn close. Most of the couples have parted ways but we
can still learn a thing or two about how to put on a 'proposal' show from these
The TomKat proposal is one for the books but as we all know the marriage
In June 2005, Tom Cruise took Katie
Holmes (or Kate as he calls her) to Le Jules Verne restaurant in Paris where
they shared a romantic candlelit dinner for two at the
He then took her to the Eiffel Tower and popped the question. Then, just mere hours later, Tom and the future Mrs. Cruise were at a press
conference where Tom said: "Today is a magnificent day for me. I'm engaged to a
magnificent woman!" Nothing says I love you like a press junket!
Mariah Carey gets a double proposal from the dashing Nick Cannon. While they
were relaxing at her Manhattan apartment, he popped the question with a 17 carat
diamond hidden inside a candy ring pop. How sweet, right?
Well, rumor has it that the young Cannon used the same ring to propose to model
Selita Ebanks. The ring which Nick designed himself is estimated to cost $2.5
million dollars and has rare pink and purple diamonds.
Perhaps he was feeling guilty so a few days later, he whisked her away on a
helicopter ride and proposed for a second time.
Seal proposed to gorgeous model and host of (the
amazing) Project Runway Heidi Klum on Dec. 23 2004.
Just two days before Christmas, at 14,000 feet in Whistler, B.C., in unchartered
terrain on a glacier, in a natural snow cave, in an igloo built just for the
Now that's what we call cool celebrity news and an incredibly romantic proposal.

Pink proposed to Carey Hart as he was racing on June 26, 2005 at a Mammoth
Lakes, California Pro 250 racing finals competition.
Hart drove off the track during the race to say yes and actually forfeited the
The couple also decided to get matching "Tru Luv" tattoos on their wrists.
Celebrity News Update: They split up but are back together again with baby
Willow. (At least we
think that's what's going on this month.)
Even though the marriage didn't last
David Arquette proposed to Courtney Cox on a beach in Florida and arranged to have fireworks go off exactly when he planned to pop the question. Nice touch David!
Since they both have a good sense of humor they didn't go for the conventional
mushy sentiments most people engrave on their wedding bands. Instead, this cool couple went
with: A Deal's a Deal.
Just goes to show that your love and nuptials can be unique and reflect who you
are without spending big bucks.
Christina Aguilera was showered
by gifts from music exec Jordan Bratman.
In celebrity news reports, they say he filled the room with flowers, balloons
and a stack of gift boxes. Each gift box contained a poem written by the love
struck Bratman and the last box contained Christina's engagement ring.
Way to go Jordan! Girls just melt for flowers (even the ones that say they
don't). We promise love & romance with a proposal like this although in this
case, in the end, we were proved wrong--they split up :-(
Rebecca Romijn first met Jerry O'Connell in Vancouver on a film set.
Jerry ditched his first proposal idea of popping the question in a sports
stadium - he was worried that he may be rejected in front of thousands of
So he forewent the very public proposal for a much more low key personal
one instead. He took the sexy X-Man star to the New York city apartment he grew up in. Much
better this way!
Not exactly celebrity news but thought this was worth listing.
Jenna Bush's boyfriend Henry Hager is extremely outdoorsy and quite romantic. He
woke her up at 4:00 am and took her on a hike up Cadillac Mountain in Acadia
National Park in Maine.
They hiked for about 90 minutes in the dark. When they finally reached the top,
the sun was coming up and he proposed.
Apparently, he chose this location because it's supposedly where the sun first
hits the United States. Nice touch when proposing to the daughter of a

He proposed on Christmas Eve at a Christmas tree farm in Toronto, Canada.
Dean's sister helped by putting up lights for a half a mile leading the couple
to a table for two surrounded by decorated Christmas trees. The couple rode up
in a horse-drawn carriage and Dean proposed.
More celebrity news from Reality Show veteran Rob Mariano who proposed during
the live season finale of Survivor All-Stars to his competitor Amber Brkich.
Just before announcing the winner, Rob popped the question by getting down on
one knee in front of a shocked Amber—who was wearing a shirt that said I heart
Rob. She said YES!
And then moments later they announced that she had just won the million dollars.
Not a bad start!
