Jennifer Aniston’s fiancé pulled a fast one on her when he popped the question, the actress tells People. Justin Theroux had been conspiring with the specialists who have worked along with Aniston for years in order to come up with the perfect ring. While he had help, this was a difficult task since the actress admits that she didn’t even know what she wanted. “He just knows what I like,” she explained on how he managed to impress her with his taste in jewelry. “It’s hard to pull one over on me…it was…a very covert operation,” Aniston admitted. She had no idea what he was planning and was taken by surprise by not only the proposal itself, but how perfect the ring was.

How do you keep an impending proposal under wraps?

Cupid’s Advice:

Planning on proposing? Congratulations! Now here are some key tips on how to keep it on the down low so that your partner does not find out before you have the chance to pop the question:

1. Keep it in a small circle: Be cautious of who you share your information with — you don’t want someone blabbing to your hopefully future fiancée about your intentions. You have the element of surprise, so make sure that you can trust the people who are conspiring with you.

2. Hide it well: Once you have the actual ring, hide it in a place where no one will ever find it but you. Just remember where you put it or else that would be a sticky situation. Here’s a hint: somewhere in your shared bedroom is not the best place.

3. Stay cool: One of the biggest tipoffs is you acting strangely and out of character. Do your best to remain calm, cool and collected or else your partner will know something is up.
