14 Famous Women Who Proposed To Their Male Partners

As times change, the role of women in the workplace or romantic relationships is now evolving. But, when it comes to marriage proposals, the male partner is always the one who gets down on one knee to ask the question.
However, some famous women have recently changed their roles. They sometimes decide to flip the script and proposed to their male partners. Anyway, no one decides who should be the one to pop the question. So let's go ahead, ladies, and you can do it. Still, our gentlemen also deserve it. It’s so interesting that the one who says “yes, I do” is sometimes a man instead of a woman. Some typical examples are retired Olympic alpine skier Lindsey Vonn, who proposed to her fiance PK Subban, and Elizabeth Wilding, who popped the question to Michael Wilding. Kristen Bell is also worth mentioning. She asked Dax Shepard to marry her via Twitter as if they proved themself to be the most romantic couple in the world.
