Just because you’re a celebrity doesn’t mean you don’t feel that stomach jangling mixture of fear and excitement when it comes time to set up a marriage proposal! Celeb guys might have access to expensive rings, and pricey destinations and other glamorous embellishments but they still feel the pressure to pop the big question in a way that is beautiful and unique. Celeb gals are still over-the-moon with the excitement and happiness of the moment and they want to share the news and bragging rights soon after the ring lands on their finger.
What’s not to love about a romantic proposal story? In honor of Valentine’s month we take a look at some of the best celebrity proposals!
Taylor Kinney proposed to Lady Gaga on Valentine’s Day 2015, during a snowy night in Manhatttan. “First he gave me a Ring Pop. That was kind of amazing and I was crying, I was so excited,” she told Access Hollywood at the Oscars. “And then he pulled out the heart-shape diamond. First it was candy. I was happy with the candy.”
She posted a photo of her heart-shaped engagement ring on Instagram.
Seal went all out for his proposal to Heidi Klum in 2004. He took Heidi for a helicopter ride over the dramatic Canadian Rockies. When the helicopter landed high atop a glacier there was a specially built igloo waiting with all the trimmings. Seal proposed and presented Heidi with a stunning 10 carat canary diamond ring. Heidi spoke about the event later, saying “He had an igloo built there, and they’d brought up everything: a bed with sheets inside the igloo, rose petals everywhere, candles. Very, very romantic!” She went on: “There was food and champagne, and then the helicopter left. It was a little scary, too, because you’re so cut off from the world. No trees, nothing — it was hardcore. But I was ecstatic. Too bad their marriage, like this igloo, eventually melted!
Kanye popped the question in October 2013 and gifted Kim with a 15-carat diamond ring from jeweler Lorraine Schwartz. For the big event, Kanye rented out A & T Park in San Francisco—yes the entire park! There were about 100 guests in attendance and the event was filmed for an episode of KUWTK. The stated reason was to celebrate Kim’s 33rd birthday, but during the party he had the words “PLEEEASE MARRY MEEE!!!!” flash up on the Jumbotron. The over-the-top proposal set the scene for their incredible wedding in Florence, Italy, the following May.

Music executive Jordan Bratman proposed to singer Christina Aguilera in a hotel room in Carmel, California. Josh filled the room with rose petals and gift boxes, each containing a present and a self-penned poem. The pair first met when he worked for her management company. Christina opened the last box, and discovered a gorgeous five carat diamond. Jordan then went down on one knee and popped the big question. Unfortunately this is another wonderful proposal but sadly the marriage itself wasn’t as enduring.
Actor Dean McDermott proposed to Tori Spelling after a long carriage ride down a path lit with twinkling Christmas lights. At the end of the path the pair enjoyed a romantic tryst at a table set up among Christmas trees. Dean then proposed to Tori with a beautiful diamond and sapphire ring. Despite some pretty dramatic ups and downs, the couple are still married and share four children together and they claim they are more in love than ever.
Bill proposed to Guiliana during helicopter flight over Chicago. He told her they were going to be looking at Christmas lights. He surprised her with the proposal, along with champagne and Guiliana’s favorite food, Giordano’s deep-dish pizza!
