hellomagazine.comFlick through our gallery to find out which celebrity couples have got engaged in the festive season over the years
Michael Jordan and Yvette Prieto
The former Chicago Bulls basketball star proposed to his supermodel girlfriend Yvette on Christmas Eve 2011, after three years of dating.
The couple later wed in April 2013, and in November announced that they are expecting their first child together.
Michael was previously married to Juanita Vanoy, whom he had three children with. The pair divorced in 2006.
Dean McDermott and Tori Spelling
The Canadian-American actor chose a truly festive location to propose to Tori Spelling on Christmas Eve in 2005 – a Christmas tree farm in Toronto.
Dean had a little help from his sister, who put up fairy lights that led the couple to a table for two surrounded by decorated Christmas trees. Dean and Tori then rode up in a horse-drawn carriage and the groom-to-be popped the question.
A year later, after marrying in May 2006, the couple relived the festive moment when Dean proposed for a second time.
"We sat on a bench overlooking the lake and I gave Tori her last Christmas present" said the actor.
"I'd wrapped the ring in a much bigger box, and as soon as she opened the ring box I asked her to marry me again. It was very romantic and magical."
Matthew McConaughey and Camila Alves
The Magic Mike star popped the question to his long-term Brazilian model girlfriend on Christmas Day in 2011.
Matthew shared a touching photo of the couple kissing on his WhoSay account, with the caption, "Just asked Camila to marry me, Merry Christmas."
The Somewhere Only We Know singer was proposed to on the evening of Christmas Day in 2010, when she and her husband Sam Cooper were holidaying in Bali.
Lily eagerly said "I do" to builder and decorator Sam, whom she has described as "the love of my life". The lovebirds later celebrated in the hotel bar, drinking champagne and cocktails with other guests.
The engagement came just a month after Lily suffered a miscarriage. The couple, who married in June 2011, are parents to two young girls, Ethel and Marnie Rose.
Will proposed while the pair were holidaying in scenic Sun Valley, Idaho over the Christmas holidays and later married in June 2012.
The wedding was Drew's third trip down the aisle. The Hollywood actress was married for a year each to Jeremy Thomas and Tom Green.
Natalie Portman and Benjamin Millepied
The pint-sized actress got engaged to her Black Swan co-star over Christmas in 2010, and at the same time announced her pregnancy.
"I have always kept my private life private but I will say that I am indescribably happy and feel very grateful to have this experience," Natalie told Entertainment Weekly at the time.
The couple welcomed their son Aleph the following year, and married in secret in a traditional Jewish ceremony in summer 2012.
Reese Witherspoon and Jim Toth
Reese and her Hollywood agent husband Jim got engaged in late December 2010, after almost a year of dating. The couple exchanged vows just a few months later in March 2011 at Reese's country ranch in Ojai, California.
"What I'm finding out is that it's very comfortable to be with somebody who understands my career, but doesn't do what I do," said the blonde beauty. "He's a great guy. He's wonderful."
Soul singer John asked his long-term supermodel girlfriend Chrissy to marry him after the couple had been together for four years.
John popped the question while the pair were on holiday in the Maldives in December 2011. The singer's romantic proposal was almost scuppered at the airport, when security guards were rifling through his bag that contained the ring in the box.
"Chrissy was standing right next to me and I was, like, 'Oh, my God, I've hid it so well this whole time," said John. "'It's going to ruin the surprise and I'll have to get on my knees in the airport.'
"But for some reason they decided not to look in the box. They just didn't look."
