In a fast progressing society, it is odd to see that the pressure or willingness to pop the question still rests on a man’s shoulder (or knee perhaps). In some cultures, such as the Irish, women get the chance once in four years on the 29th of February. However, there are couples where the girlfriend decided to propose to her man whenever she wished to. Why wait when you can ask the romantic question any time of the year? We have listed some of the most ideal couples of Hollywood where the female partner made “The Proposal” without having to wait for the “Leap Year”. It was equally romantic and one of the best days of their lives regardless of who got down on the knee. Find out the 10 female celebrities who proposed their partners for marriage. We wish that the number increases soon.

Five Feet Apart actress, Haley, and Brett were dating since 2012 when Haley was merely a teenager. One day they were out having pizza and laughing when Haley suddenly popped up the question and Brett happily said yes. Both are perfect for each other for their spontaneity. When asked to describe the scene, she said “I just asked,” she said. “Neither of us are, like, crazy romantic people, so nothing was planned. He was sitting there eating a pizza and he was telling me a joke that Shia LaBeouf had said in an interview, and he was, like, pretending to be Shia LaBeouf explaining this joke and for some reason I just cut him off and was like, ‘Wanna marry me?”
