Back in the days, being a woman and asking a man for his hand in marriage was frowned upon by the society – ladies were supposed to be rescued by their knight in shining armor, right? But what difference does it make when there is a role reversal?
Haley Lu Richardson and Brett Dier
Gone are the days when men needed to pop the million-dollar question to the love of their life, now, even women ask this to their partners as well when they feel that the timing is right. Such was the case of Haley Lu Richardson, star of Five Feet Apart, who was very open about how it went down.
Apparently, she and boyfriend actor Brett Dier were just hanging out by the couch and eating pizza, while he was making Shia LaBeouf jokes, when Haley suddenly asked him if he wanted to marry her. The Schooled star said yes.
Britney Spears and Kevin Federline
Did you know that singer Britney Spears made the big move on her then-boyfriend Kevin Federline during a flight to New York from Iceland in 2004? They have now moved on from each other but they have an amusing proposal story.
So the Toxic hitmaker asked the wrestler the question, but the man initially said no. Kevin explained that he was used to the thought that men ask women to marry them and not the other way around, so he ended up asking her minutes later.
Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard
Let’s admit it: Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard are a match made in heaven. In 2009, the Parenthood actor proposed to the Frozen voice actress, however, things didn’t immediately end up in marriage because they famously promised that they would only tie the knot once every gender could.
So when the Defense of Marriage Act was shot down by the Supreme Court in 2013, the Veronica Mars star asked her long-time boyfriend for his hand in marriage. Of course, Dax said yes and they wed a few months after.
Pink and Carey Hart
Pink has a lot of tricks up her sleeve, and we’re not just talking about her musical prowess. Who can forget the day she proposed to her now-husband Carey Hart in 2005?
The Try singer certainly knows how to make the announcement big because during a motocross event that year where her husband was competing, Pink used a pit board to ask Carey to marry her on the last lap. Half a year later, these equally talented people got married and they now have wonderful kids, Willow and Jameson.
