Popping the big question with a ring is not easy even for celebrities. They might have went down on their knees a lot of times on the big screen, but when it comes to real life, stars too get nervous and anxious.
Before the lavish wedding ceremony and luxurious honeymoon comes the act of "popping the question," and trust me, these handsome stars are also nervous before proposing their lady love.
However, it is very interesting to know how these celebrities have proposed their partners. We have seen both incredibly low-key and totally over-the-top ways the Hollywood stars have used to propose their lovely partner.
From proposing on the eve of Valentine's Day to getting down on the knee of a ground, stars have been creative and pushed boundaries to make the day memorable and romantic.
For example, Lady Gaga was proposed for marriage by her partner Taylor Kinney on Valentine's Day this year. So, a lot of celebrities pick up holidays as the best time to pop the big question and also spend more time with their partners. For example, Joe Manganiello and Matthew McConaughey proposed to their ladies on Christmas Day in 2014 and 2011 respectively.
Here are some of the inspiring and romantic ways celebrities proposed.
Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka
The stars were engaged long before same-sex marriage was legalized. Burtka first proposed to Harris and he picked up the same place where they first met. "We were on our way to an event at an Indian casino 45 minutes out of town in a limousine, and David wanted to stop for some reason that I didn't quite get. I thought he wanted to get some booze or something. And then he got on one knee and proposed, and I was so freaked out by it that I said, 'Yes,' but I didn't know what it meant. Then I got the ring and loved it, and a year later, on Valentine's Day, I proposed to him in Santa Monica," Neil Patrick Harris told Out magazine.
Valentine's Day is the day to declare love and take your relationship to the next level. This is what Lady Gaga and her long time boyfriend, Taylor Kinney did on this special day this year. Lady Gaga announced her engagement on her Instagram account by sharing a picture of her engagement ring on Instagram, she wrote, "He gave me his heart on Valentine's Day, and I said YES!"
The handsome Magic Mike star proposed his now wife, Camila on Christmas in 2011. He made it more surprising by wrapping the engagement ring in about eight different boxes deep, so she would keep opening boxes to get to it. "During Christmas time we go around as a family and everyone gets their turn to open presents. I had wrapped the engagement ring in about eight different boxes deep so she'd have to keep opening boxes to get to it. And because we go around and swap out and take turns on who's opening presents, she had to get skipped the last 15 times. She kept going, 'Why can't I open that present?' And I said, 'You have to wait til the end.' Finally I get to her and I'm calling my family over ... and her eyes go wide and I take a knee and I said, 'Will you marry me and take my name?'"
The rapper proposed to his now-wife Eudoxie Agnan just moments after the two took off for a ride on his private jet in December 2014.

Not only did Eudoxie say "yes," but the couple tied the knot just a few days later.

Seal proposed to now divorced wife, Heidi Klum in 2004 with a 10-carat canary diamond ring. The supermodel revealed the romantic story a few years later, saying that he took her by helicopter to the Canadian Rockies. "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."
Kanye popped the question with a 15-carat diamond ring from jeweler Lorraine Schwartz at a baseball ground! He rented out San Francisco's AT&T Park for an epic celebration for Kim's 33rd birthday in October 2013, and he blasted the words "PLEEEASE MARRY MEEE!!!!" on the Jumbotron. A group of about 100 people attended, including Kim's entire family, some of Kanye's friends from Chicago, a full orchestra, members of San Francisco's tech elite, and the film crew from Keeping Up With the Kardashians.
