One of the best parts of loving a celebrity couple is when one of them pops the question. You get so excited for them as if they were one of your girls from your book club. You want to know everything: from the ring to if they’ve set a date yet. And one of the biggest things we want details on is how they proposed.
We love how romantic — or even silly — some proposals are. For instance, we swooned over how Travis Barker proposed to Kourtney Kardashian on the beach, how Sam Asghari proposed to Britney Spears by surprise, and even how Dylan Meyer proposed to Kristen Stewart. But what we love more is when the women in the partnership shake up gender norms by popping the question themselves.
When proposals come up, the traditional way for heterosexual couples has typically been for the man to pop the question. A 2019 study from The Knot showed that 97% of grooms were the ones to propose to their brides, per The Atlantic. So when one of our favorite celebrity women does it, we’re obsessed.
From Britney Spears to Jodie Turner-Smith, check out some famous women who have proposed to their partners over the years.
