Lauren Morelli and Samira Wiley
Samira Wiley, an actress, and Lauren Morelli, a writer, first met on the Orange is the New Black set in 2012. Their friendship blossomed into a love affair, and Morelli proposed to her in private. Wiley told Out Magazine that they had planned to spend the weekend in Palm Springs. “I’m very laid back; if it is five in the afternoon, Lauren wants to beat traffic, I’m just waiting. I was determined to pack well that day. “She came home from work and wasn’t ready to leave, so I was confused.”
Sofia Vergara, Joe Manganiello
Joe Manganiello, actor, proposed to Sofia Vergara. It wasn’t romantic. The Magic Mike star proposed to Vergara while on vacation in Hawaii, December 2014. He used Vergara’s native language as a way to express his love. On Live with Kelly and Michael, he said that he had prepared a large speech in Spanish and was anxious about it. “It’s not something you want to do, but to make the Spanish for the proposal to the Colombian lady look bad.”
George Clooney, Amal Alamuddin
George Clooney proposed to Amal Alamuddin (his then-girlfriend), on April 28, 2014. But the process took much longer than he anticipated. Clooney prepared a pasta dinner and proposed to his girlfriend on a night at home.
