Multiple marriages, called-off engagements, cheating scandals and more; relationship drama in Hollywood is always swirling. It’s also no surprise when fans see celebrity couples make up, break up or “put a ring on it.” What is surprising is when celebrities decide to marry a “non-famous” after their own fame comes. Although, it seems as though their track records tend to be a bit more successful and less tabloid-friendly.
But what about the celebrities that seem to only date other celebrities? Or, even further, get engaged and get married to other celebrities (plural form, of course). Who has proposed to others in the spotlight? Who has proposed to both movie stars and pop stars alike? Take the plunge and check out these 15 celebrities that have proposed to more than one woman while finding out how successful the engagement actual was!
