The holiday weekend was full of family gatherings and celebrations, and one thing that many toasted was the numerous engagements that occurred. This included those in Hollywoord, as actor Matthew McConaughey had an extra special present for his girlfriend of five years, Camila Alves, according to Us Weekly.

The actor turned to Twitter to announce his engagement and tweeted, "Just asked Camila to marry me, #MerryChristmas."

McConaughey also posted a picture of the two kissing on his WhoSay account this past Sunday, the media outlet reports.

It wasn't just McConaughey who got on one knee this past weekend, as soul-singer John Legend also popped the question to longtime girlfriend Chrissy Teigan. The two got engaged while on a holiday vacation in the Maldives.

The nine-time Grammy winner will be ringing in the new year with his fiance while doing a performance at the Pearl Concert Theater at the Palms Casino Resort this Saturday.

Now, these women along with the others who got engaged this weekend will be showing off their new and beautiful engagement rings.
