Neal Schon

Neal Schon is a taken man. The longtime Journey guitarist proposed to former reality star Michaele Salahi during the band's performance in Baltimore on Sunday night, according to reports.

"They were on stage when he proposed, then they had a cake after work backstage." her agent, Mike Esterman, told E! News afterward. "The diamond was pretty large."

Salahi and Schon first became an item last year when she skipped out on her husband - and fellow White House state dinner crasher - Tareq Salahi. They apparently dated in the past but decided to rekindle their romance when her marriage to Tareq went south.

We congratulate the happy couple! It's pretty romantic to get engaged onstage - just ask these other celeb couples!

Diana DeGarmo and Ace Young

Former "American Idol" finalists Diana DeGarmo and Ace Young have dated for a few years, but Young decided to make it official by proposing to her in May during the season finale.

It felt cheap, though - probably because Young got in a blatant product endorsement during his proposal.

"We have an amazing group of people around us, and, with the help of David Webb Jewelry, I have a way to make this fun last forever," Young told his girlfriend as he got down on one knee. "I love you to death. …Diana Nicole DeGarmo, will you marry me?"

Jake Owen

Cute country star Jake Owen broke a million female hearts simultaneously when he proposed to longtime girlfriend Lacey Buchanan during a concert in their hometown of Vero Beach, Fla.

The 30-year-old got down on his knee during the performance of his song "Don't Think I Can't Love You." Obviously, she said yes.

"I'm a happy man. Life is complete," he tweeted afterward.

Aaron Carter and Kari Ann Peniche

Not all onstage proposals end up with a wedding. Just ask singer Aaron Carter. The younger Carter brother did an impromptu proposal to his porn star girlfriend during a concert in September 2006.

He called off the whole thing a week later.

"I got caught up in the moment and proposed. I then realized it was a hasty thing to do and I am not ready for marriage quite yet," he told US Weekly afterward.

Probably a good choice, especially because Peniche also dated older brother Nick Carter.

A.J. McLean

Backstreet Boys singer A.J. McLean has had his fair share of personal problems, but he put that behind him when he proposed to girlfriend Rochelle Karidis in 2010. McLean popped the question to a surprised Karidis at the Wasted Space nightclub in Vegas, according to sources.

"He got up on stage and the DJ turned the music off. He asked her to come up on stage and he got down on his knee and she squatted down with him," a source told People at the time. "He asked her and she said yes and hugged him. He took the ring out of his pocket and put it on her hand."

Apparently he bought the ring that day. It's working out, though: The pair is expecting a daughter in the coming months.

Do you think Neal Schon and Michaele Salahi will last?
