When news broke that one of favorite celebrity couples had separated, hearts collectively shattered all over the globe. Yeah, we’re talking to you Anna Faris and Chris Pratt! So, to super-glue our broken hearts back together, we rounded up 35 beautiful couples who have proved that maybe, just maybe, love isn’t dead after all.
John Legend and Chrissy Teigen
If you don’t think #RelationshipGoals when you see John Legend and Chrissy Teigen then boy are you in for a surprise! Not only is their cute meet as cute as it gets but their nuptials in September 2013 are enough to make you weak in the knees! The pair met on the set of Legend’s “Stereo” music video back in 2007, but the legendary singer admitted that it was not love at first sight for him. “I’m more cautious than that,” he said to the Los Angeles Confidential magazine in November 2014. “For me, I’m the kind of person who needs to grow into that feeling. It was probably a couple of years in when I could already see us being together forever.” Their daughter, Luna, was born in 2016.
Jay Z and Beyonce
Power couple is an understatement here. After their collaboration on “’03 Bonnie & Clyde”, everything pieced into formation and while their love isn’t always #flawless, it’s still going strong. Jay Z and Beyonce exchanged vows in 2008, and welcomed a daughter, Blue Ivy, in 2012. On July 13, 2017, the pair welcomed twins, daughter Rumi and son, Sir Carter.
George Clooney and Amal Clooney
No point in denying it but George Clooney was the perpetual playboy of Hollywood until he met Amal, of course. Sparks flew and the couple fast-tracked their relationship; they began dating in late 2013, were engaged by April 2014, and became Mr. and Mrs. Clooney in September 2014. On June 6, 2017, this beautiful couple welcomed twins a daughter, Ella, and a son, Alexander.
Eric Johnson and Jessica Simpson
Aww, lovebirds! Jessica Simpson and the former NFL player Eric Johnson met in 2010 and really wasted no time sharing their love to the rest of the world. The parir got engaged in November 2010 and said “I Do” in July 2014 (in the meantime they also welcomed daughter Maxwell and son Ace).
Kate Middleton and Prince William
Kate Middleton and Prince William ooze grace and class with every step taken. The Duke and Duchess met when they were just classmates at Scotland’s University of St. Andrews – establishing their relationship as friends first then lovers; the pair were inseparable, apart from their short breakup in 2007. Now the two are rock-steady after exchanging vows in April 2011 and welcoming two little ones, with another on the way: Prince George and Princess Charlotte.
Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis
Fans of That ‘70s Show will forever ‘ship the on-screen couple of Jackie and Michael Kelso and while that relationship didn’t happen, at least it did in real life. Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher remained friends long after the show went off air, heck they even dated other people, until they rekindled the flame in 2012! In July 2015, they secretly got married and have a beautiful daughter, Wyatt Isabelle, and a handsome son Dimitri Portwood, together.
Sarah Michelle Gellar and Freddie Prinze Jr.
Be still my heart – it’s teen movie heaven! Sarah Michelle Gellar and Freddie Prinze Jr. met on set of the 1997 flick I Know What You Did Last Summer, and they quickly became friends before any kind of romantic spark blossomed. By April 2001, they were engaged and in September 2002, they got hitched. They have a daughter and a son together and recently celebrated 15 years!
Rachael Leigh Cook and Daniel Gillies
Rachael Leigh Cook and Daniel Gillies come from two ardent fandoms (although they’re from different times and mediums) – Cook is the 90’s sweetheart from She’s All That while Gillies is Elijah Mikaelson, the ~original~ vampire from The Vampire Diaries, then The Originals. While only dating for about a year, they knew it was meant to be, and they’re still going strong after 12 years! Cook and Gillies have two children together: daughter Charlotte and son Theodore.
Justin Theroux and Jennifer Aniston
Our girl Jennifer Aniston found lasting love and we’re over the moon for her! In May 2011, Aniston began dating the actor, director, and screenwriter Justin Theroux, the following year they became engaged, and on August 5, 2015, they said “I Do”.
Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds
Personally, I adore Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds, they have such down to earth personalities which makes their relationship so relatable. Lively revealed to Marie Claire’s July 2016 issue that she knew Ryan Reynolds was the one for her because she “knew he would always be my best friend for my whole life. … I could like him as much as I loved him.” Ugh, I’m not crying, you’re crying. September 2012 is when Lively and Reynolds exchanged vows, they are also parents to daughters, James and Ines.
Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith
Despite all the divorce rumors, Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith are still going strong! In fact, they have one of Hollywood’s longest lasting marriages – having gotten hitched back in 1997. Together, they have two children, Jaden and Willow.
David Beckham and Victoria Beckham
You know those super cute love at first sight stories that want you to throw up from cuteness? Yeah, that’s the case when it comes to David Beckham and Victoria Beckham! “Posh and Becks” met back in 1997 at a bar, and Victoria knew David was the one as soon as she laid eyes on him! Two years later and the pair said “I Do”, they share four children together, three sons (Brooklyn, Romeo, and Cruz), and a daughter (Harper).
Kanye West and Kim Kardashian
Love them or hate them, you can’t deny that no loves Kim Kardashian and Kanye West quite like…Kim Kardashian and Kanye West. This headline-making pair had an extravagant over-the-top wedding in Italy in May 2014, and have two kids together — daughter North and son Saint.
Emily Blunt and John Krasinski
Wrap your head around this but Emily Blunt and John Krasinski had their first date at a shooting range! Seriously. According to “Jim Harper”, he really didn’t think that the first date would lead to a second, let alone marriage and children. “On our first date, I decided, ‘I’m gonna really hit the gas and bring her to a gun range,’” he admitted to Conan O’Brien in 2012. “I think that I was so sure that I would never end up with her … that I was like, ‘You know what, I’m gonna blow it right away and then that way you don’t feel bad.’” Not only did they get married in July 2010 but they have two daughters, Hazel and Violet. Never change you two!
Nikki Reed and Ian Somerhalder
Vampire fandoms of Twilight and The Vampire Diaries exploded into insanity when Nikki Reed and Ian Somerhalder began dating in mid-2014. Aside from their acting careers, Reed and Somerhalder are avid activists who tied the knot in April 2015. And now they can also add a new title to their already impressive resume: Parents! Their daughter, Bodhi Soleil, was born on July 25, 2017. #congrats
Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard
Late 2007 is when Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard officially became one of Hollywood’s cutest couples. Don’t believe us? Just you wait and see. They postponed their engagement in 2010 until California legalized same-sex marriage and they waited three years for that beautiful honor. Bell asked Shepard to marry her via Twitter, which he accepted, and the pair exchanged vows at the Beverly Hills County Clerk’s Office on October 17, 2013 – which only cost them $142 dollars. Together, they have two daughters, Lincoln and Delta.
Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz
Arguably one of England’s most royal couples. Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz began dating in December 2010 (although they were friends for many years), and the following year they got hitched in a private New York ceremony, with only a total of four guests in attendance, including Weisz’s son and Craig’s daughter.
Fergie and Josh Duhamel
When Fergie was still with the Black Eyed Peas, she and the group had a cameo on the show Las Vegas, where Josh Duhamel was the lead character. One thing lead to another and after dating for three years, the pair said “I Do”, and have a son together.
Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan Tatum
Make sure you’re following Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan Tatum on social media, why? Well you’ll just have to find that out for yourself! Anyways, Channing and Jenna met on the set of Step Up back in 2005 and the rest is history! No doubt you know they got engaged while on a romantic vacation in Hawaii two years later, tying the knot in 2009, and their daughter, Everly was born in 2013.
Rita Wilson and Tom Hanks
29 years. Yup, that’s how long Rita Wilson and Tom Hanks have been married and if that’s not impressive enough for you, we don’t know what is. Together they have two sons, along with two children from Hanks’ previous marriage. Hanks said to BBC Radio’s Desert Island Discs, “I don’t think I’ll ever be lonely any more…that’s how I felt when I met my wife.” AWW.
Oprah Winfrey and Stedman Graham
After Oprah Winfrey and Stedman Graham were introduced by friends, it took a couple years before they began dating. In fact, the pair have been together since 1986! 30 years, people, that’s impressive. Graham adorably said one, “It really does amaze me that I get to be around a woman who changes people’s lives every day…and takes her own lunch to work.”
Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick
Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick have been married 19 years, and have three children together, a son and twin daughters. Get this, it was Parker’s brother who introduced her to her future husband! Three months later, Broderick asked her out. “I love Matthew Broderick. Call me crazy, but I love him. We can only be in the marriage we are. We’re very devoted to our family and our lives,” Parker revealed to Harper’s Bazaar. “I love our life. I love that he’s the father of my children, and it’s because of him that there’s this whole other world that I love.”
Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi

Angela Bassett and Courtney B. Vance
Angela Bassett and Courtney B. Vance have been married for about 19 years, and have twins together, son Slater and daughter Bronwyn. While they got married in 1997, they actually met back in school in 1980, but remained friends for years, not going on their first date until 1996! “I just looked at him and knew that he was a kind person whose core burned pure,” Bassett told Rolling Out. “Now he makes mistakes, and so do I, but I always try to do the right thing and I feel like I’ve found someone who tries to as well.”
Felicity Huffman and William H. Macy
Before exchanging vows on September 6, 1997, Felicity Huffman and William H. Macy had quite the on-and-off relationship…for 15 years. The duo have two daughters together, Sophia and Georgia. Huffman recently said to Ellen DeGeneres, “‘I just lucked out with that guy. He walks in a room and I go, ‘Ah!'” Okay, that’s just cute.
Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka
Ugh, Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka are the epitome of #relationshipgoals and pretty much always will be! Harris and Burtka began dating in 2004, got engaged two years later but waited until same-sex marriage was legalized before going public with the good news. In 2014 in Italy, the pair got hitched and have twins via a surrogate.
Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell
Since early 1983, Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell have been an item! Impressive? We’d say so. Although they actually met way back in 1968 on the set of The One and Only, Genuine, Original Family Band. 15 years later, they began dating and the rest is history!

By April 2015, their son, Silas, was born. Also, we have to add that they have the most adorable date nights, some of which we mere mortals can replicate and others (like attending fancy award parties), we can’t. One can hope, though, one can hope.
Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos
When Mark Consuelos became Kelly Ripa’s new co-star on the set of All My Children in 1995, that was it. The love bug struck both actors that they eloped the following year! Together, they have three children: Michael, Lola, and Joaquin.
