Ah, the holidays. The smell of pine. A chill in the air. Engagement announcements blowing up your Facebook news feed. Even famous people aren’t immune to the holiday romance bug.
These are the stars who proposed over the holidays.
Kelly Clarkson and Brandon Blackstock: Kelly Clarkson and her now-husband Brandon Blackstock got engaged on Dec. 15, 2012.
Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake: Jessica and Justin just got hitched, but less than a year ago they were newly engaged. JT got down on one knee just days before Christmas 2011, or just days after Hanukkah 2011, but we don’t think either are Jewish, so let’s go with Christmas.
Britney Spears & Jason Trawick: Britney Spears and Jason Trawick got engaged about a week before Christmas 2011, but by NYE 2013 they had already split.
Matthew McConaughey & Camila Alves: After dating for what felt like FOREVER, Matthew McConaughey proposed to Camila Alves over Christmas 2011. They were married earlier this year in a secret ceremony.
Fergie and Josh Duhamel: Long before the baby and the wedding, in December 2007, Josh Duhamel proposed to Fergie.
Crystal Harris and Hugh Hefner: Hugh Hefner popped the question to his now-wife Crystal Harris over Christmas 2012. Surprisingly, they are STILL together.
Brandy Norwood and Ryan Press: Last Christmas, singer Brandy announced that she and boyfriend Ryan Press were engaged. Since then, we haven’t heard much from Brandy.
Kat Von D and Deadmau5: Although they have called off their engagement, for a few short months these two were celebrating their December 2012 engagement.
