Beckinsale 'Tricked' Into Engagement
VAN HELSING beauty KATE BECKINSALE was proposed to by boyfriend LEN WISEMAN when he asked her to open a friend's birthday present for her - and found her won engagement ring inside.
Director Wiseman sprung the surprise on her at the party at the VICEROY HOTEL in Los Angeles, before the happy couple - who married earlier this month (MAY04) - headed off to a room to be by themselves.
Beckinsale, 30, says, "Len was holding the present and he goes, 'I'll give it to you instead', and I said, 'Why are you giving it to me?'
"But I opened it and the ring was inside. And that's when he asked me. He'd booked a suite upstairs and when I walked in, there were petals all over it and one of special songs - a PETE YORN track - was playing."27/05/2004 17:20
