IT is probably the biggest and most nerve-wracking question a man (or a woman in some cases) will ever have to ask.
Here are three of the more talked about proposals.
Timing was everything for Michael Douglas when he fed the important line to our very own Catherine Zeta Jones.
The couple had just held a party at their Aspen, Colorado, home to welcome in the new millennium.
As the new century started Douglas presented Catherine an antique, 10-carat marquise-cut diamond ring — the rest is local history!
Diminutive Tom Cruise chose the top of the Eiffel Tower when deciding to ask Katie Holmes the big question.
Singer Seal certainly lived up to his name when proposing to supermodel Heidi Klum inside a snow cave… on a glacier… at 14,000 feet. Klum later described the proposal as "a once-in-a-lifetime event," and she had a 10-carat cushion-cut diamond ring to support her statement.
