Kim Kardashian, Katy Perry, and others -- Hollywood has seen its share of major breakups and shocking divorces from its biggest celebrities in the past year but it's not all heartbreak in Tinsletown. Many of our most talented celebs have decided to take the walk down the aisle with their beloved significant other. Here's the lowdown on our favorite recent celebrity engagements.
Perhaps it's the third times the charm for this soul singer! Aretha announced her engagement to longtime beau William "Wilkie" Wilkerson on Jan 2nd. The former firefighter and singer met in Detroit almost thirty years ago!
Aretha was all laughs when she announced the engagement saying, "No, I'm not pregnant!" The two are planning a Miami wedding for summer 2012 and we hope this love is lasting for the 69-year-old diva.
Did anyone ever think this Texan hunk would settle down? Neither did we! The actor proposed to long time model girlfriend Camila Alves who shares two children with the brunette beauty.
The two have been together for over four years and Matthew popped the question on Christmas tweeting afterwards about it. "Just asked Camila to marry me, merry Christmas." Merry Christmas indeed!
This R&B crooner has been known to be quite the swoon worthy star when performing one his hit songs and over Christmas he swooned his girlfriend of four years, model Christine Teigen.
John who just turned 33 on Dec. 28th took his lady love to the scenic Maldives for the proposal and by New Year's Eve the model was showing off her gorgeous engagement ring while bringing in the new year. We can't wait to hear the music that comes from this beautiful union.
This rock god has seen his share of ladies over the years so it was surprising when he announced his engagement to girlfriend Erin Brady over Christmas. Erin worked as Aerosmith's accountant and after dating the rock star and knowing his debaucherous ways she said " 'Hey listen, if you play, I'm gonna' play,'" she said on Oprah Winfrey's new show "Oprah's Next Chapter". "He didn't really like when he was on the other side of that scenario."
At the age of 63 Steven has been married twice before so has Erin, 25 years his junior, finally found a way to keep Steven tied around her finger?
