Yesterday, I blogged about former Backstreet Boy A.J. McLean’s engagement to girlfriend Rochelle Deanna Karidis. It turns out he isn’t the only one infected with the engagement fever; a lot of celebs have started 2010 with a wedding proposal.
First, People reported that rocker Marilyn Manson, 41, proposed to his on-and-off girlfriend Evan Rachel Wood, 22, while he was performing onstage in Paris last January 4. Although the couple has yet to confirm the engagement, it has fueled the Hollywood grapevine.
Second, comedian Russell Brand, proposed to popstar Katy Perry, 25, during their New Year holiday in India. According to The Sun, he popped the question in a romantic ceremony at India’s luxury Taj Rambagh Palace hotel with the help of the hotel staff.
Third, Keyshia Cole’s spokesperson recently admitted that the singer/reality star is pregnant and engaged to NBA player Daniel Gibson. Their first child is expected to be born in March.

Next, Canadian crooner Michael Buble, 34, and his Argentinian actress girlfriend, Luisana Loreley Lopilato de la Torre, 22, finally admitted to the press that they have been engaged for two months now. You may recognize Luisana for her role in Michael’s video, “Just Haven’t Met You Yet.”
Lastly, The New York Post reported that Derek Jeter, 35, of the New York Yankees is engaged to Minka Kelly, 29, of Friday Night Lights. One reporter went out of her way to get the scoop on this engagement by posing as a bride-to-be at the Oheka Castle in Huntington, where Kevin Jonas recently got married. She found the hotel’s official wedding schedule where the Jeter wedding is set for November 5.
