Matthew Mcconaughey ensured his proposal to Camila Alves was full of suspense by hiding her engagement ring in seven different boxes.
The Sahara star surprised the Brazilian beauty by popping the question on Christmas Day (25Dec11), and he made sure it was a moment to remember by burying the diamond under a pile of presents.
MCConaughey tells People magazine, "It was the last gift to be opened and I wrapped it in seven different boxes so Camila would have to keep unwrapping. She got the ring, I took a knee and asked her to marry me and take my name. After a bit, she conceded... thankfully."
MCConaughey also treated Alves to a vintage-style diamond headpiece and 10-carat earrings to wear on their wedding day last weekend (09Jun12).
