Matthew McConaughey recently revealed to Jay Leno just how he proposed to now-wife Camila Alves, and it's as heart-stoppingly romantic as you'd imagine from someone so frequently shirtless. It involved eight boxes before Alves finally unwrapped her ring on Christmas day, and her first word was, somehow, not "yes," he told Leno. His response: "Look, I’m down on a knee. I’ll stay here awhile. I will outlast you." "And I did!" he concludes. "She conceded." In his honor, Celebuzz rounds up nine more equally swoon-worthy celebrity engagement stories:

  • Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon: Cannon first proposed to Carey on her apartment building's rooftop, with a candy ring that—fortunately for Cannon—had a real diamond ring inside. Then he proposed again, while the couple flew around the Empire State Building.
  • Pink and Carey Hart: Pink did the proposing, holding up a sign asking Hart to marry her while he raced in Mammoth.
  • Seal and Heidi Klum: Seal popped the question in a custom-built igloo atop a glacier at 14,000 feet. Too bad that didn't last
