We have a couple of celebrity wedding proposals today – first off, openly gay boxer Orlando Cruz proposed to his boyfriend. Watermark reports:

Cruz made his proposal on his Facebook page, and his boyfriend accepted. “I’d like to say, and share it with your friends, and with my friends: Do you want to marry me?” Cruz said on a video of about 2 minutes posted on the social media site Aug. 14. “It’s an important step, it’s a step I’ve thought about, it’s a step that we have thought about.” Cruz also mentioned the proposal on his Twitter account, saying that he had taken an important step in his life and that he wants happiness for him and his partner as a couple.

Lily TomlinAnd actress Lily Tomlin proposed to her partner of forty-two years, with an unusual twist. Queerty reports:

“You don’t really need to get married, but marriage is awfully nice,” Tomlin said. “Everybody I know who got married, they say it really makes a difference. They feel very very happy about it.” Being the iconic funny lady she is, don’t expect the woman who’s made us laugh in films such as Nine to Five and Big Business to have a traditional wedding. “No rings, no bridal dresses,” she added. “Maybe we’ll be dressed like chickens.”

We wish both happy couples many more years together in matrimonial bliss.
