MATTHEW MCCONAUGHEY reveals to star news that his new wife, CAMILA ALVES, initially declined to his proposal last December.
Good thing she changed her mind!
The “Magic Mike” stripper star, who finally married Camila last June 9 in Texas, revealed on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” earlier this week:
“At Christmastime, we go around our family and everyone takes turns opening presents. So I had wrapped the engagement ring in about eight different boxes deep, so she would keep opening boxes to get with it.”
“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?’”
While that was actually an interesting twist to the usual proposal line (and admit it, it’s kind of hard to say no to the hunky actor!), Matthew shared that Camila declined… but he managed to change her mind in just a few seconds:
“The first word out of her mouth was not ‘yes.’ I’m not gonna say what it was. But I did say, ‘Look, I’m down on a knee. I’ll stay here awhile. I will outlast you.’ And I did! She conceded.”
Aww! Well we’re sure Matthew breathed his final sigh of relief when Camila said “I do” this month.
But we’re still curious…
How do you think Camila declined Matthew‘s proposal?
