  • Everyone loves a good photobomb — even celebrities. 

  • These are the most serendipitous encounters normal people have had with celebrities photobombing them, including Dwyane Wade's sweet reaction to a proposal and the iconic "double-bomb" of Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone.

  • Be on the lookout in your photos — you never know who'll show up.

In another case of celebrities being just like us, they love a good photobomb. They do it to each other on red carpets all the time.

But these cases are special — these famous faces actually chose to bless regular people with their presence, and memorialize it with a photo.

Dwyane Wade was walking along the beach in California when he was overcome by this couple's proposal

The former NBA superstar was walking along the beach in Montecito when he happened to walk right by an in-process proposal.

Instagram user @ryanbasch shared a series of three photos of Wade walking behind the happy couple and eventually taking a photo with them. He captioned the photos, "When @dwyanewade happens to be taking a sunset stroll on the beach and walks by mid-proposal."

Wade even shared the photos to his Instagram story, and DMed Basch himself, writing, "I need y'all marriage to work. It's now on my conscience." Basch eventually invited Wade to the wedding — so perhaps we'll see more of this unlikely friendship.

Jason Segel happened to walk by this couple's engagement photos and decided to hop in

Megan Monaco and Joe Fetrow were visiting Philadelphia to take their engagement photos when they noticed the "How I Met Your Mother" star walking around the area. According to Twisted Oaks Studio, the comedian came over to say hi, and he jumped right into a photo with the couple, who are both big Segel fans.

"You don't expect something like that to happen ... and then it does, and it was so fun," Monaco told CNN.
