KATE BECKINSALE
It was a case of love at first bite when mum-of-one Kate Beckinsale fell for director Len Wiseman on the set of their first film together, the vampire flick Underworld. And in 2003, the filmmaker decided to pop the question, appropriately enough, over a bite to eat.

The couple were enjoying an intimate dinner at the luxurious Viceroy Hotel in Santa Monica when Len asked Kate, who has a daughter, Lily, from a previous relationship, to marry him, presenting her with what she would later call "an absolutely beautiful" ring. The director set the romantic stage for post-engagement celebrations, booking the hotel's lavish presidential suite and filling it with lilies, Kate's favourite flower.

But Len popped the question not once, but twice. At the couple's May 2005 Bel-Air wedding, the groom surprised then four-year-old Lily with a miniature ring of her own, asking the little girl if she would marry him, too.
