Although Matthew McConaughey’s recent wedding to Camila Alves went off without a hitch, in a lavish, 72-hour ceremony, the Magic Mike star admits that getting her to say “yes” to his marriage proposal was a little more difficult.
“At Christmas time, we go around our family and everyone takes turns opening presents,” McConaughey, 42, revealed Monday on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno. “So I had wrapped the engagement ring in about eight different boxes deep, so she would keep opening boxes to get with it.”
What did Alves say when she saw the ring?
“We finally got to her, and I’m calling my family over … She gets to it, she opens it up, her eyes go wide. I take a knee and I ask her, ‘Will you marry me and take my name?’”
