Then And Now: Celeb Couples From The Past To The Present

By: Lilli Keeve | Last updated: Jan 25, 2024

Marriage is a tough thing, no matter if you’re a celebrity or not. All relationships consist of challenges, and most couples are doing their best to make it work out. When you’re in the public eye, however, everything is heightened.

These are some celebs that have gone through a lot in their marriages and have remained intact. Indeed, this proves that love is the strongest force in the world! 

Dax Shepard And Kristen Bell

These lovebirds are known for being vigilant about children’s privacy but have been very public about their relationship with each other. They have been hitched since 2013, and have two daughters, Lincoln and Delta. But, things haven’t always gone smoothly for the couple.

Naturally, Dax and Kristen have gone through their fair share of ups and downs – Dax was in an open relationship before meeting Kristen. They are very content with where they are now despite the bumpy road.


Justin Timberlake And Jessica Biel

The backstory behind Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel’s relationship history is quite vast. In 2007, the “Say Something” singer and the actress first became romantically linked with each other. Even though they did split for a brief period of time in 2011, their wedding ceremony happened in Italy on October 12, 2012. It took place at the famous St. Mark’s Basilica.

Justin and Jessica have shared many life-altering experiences throughout their journey together. They experienced the birth of their sons, professional endeavors, and unforgettable birthday celebrations. The pair is still going strong, even after all these years!

John Legend And Chrissy Teigen

John and Chrissy have had two children (Miles, 4, and Luna, 6) since they got married almost a decade ago. And, a third child is apparently on the way. On September 14, 2013, John and Chrissy were wedded to each other.

On a podcast, John shared his thoughts on the journey with Chrissy. He said, “We’ve been through enough together. As a result, it has strengthened and fortified us. As a result of these tests, we’ve grown together and learned new things about each other.” The two are still together and seem to be happy. 

Ellen DeGeneres And Portia de Rossi

Held on August 16, 2008, at their home in Beverly Hills, Ellen and Portia wore Zac Posen for the special ceremony. Although there were rumors swirling around over their split, they saw them in a positive light since the rumors weren’t based on any solid truth. This is likely the case with celebrity romances.

After 14 years of marriage, the couple is still enjoying their lives together. Throughout the crazy rollercoaster ride of buying and selling over 20 homes, Ellen and Portia remain happy. 

Sacha Baron Cohen And Isla Fisher

Sacha and Isla truly seem to be a perfect couple. They are among some of the funniest and most talented stars in Hollywood and have sustained an enduring relationship. The pair met over 20 years ago and have been married for over a decade!

The celeb couple has been private in terms of their relationship and family life. When they talk publicly about each other, it’s filled with nothing but love. With three kids and one dog, Sacha and Isla definitely plan to remain with each other long-term. They continue to blossom in their relationship after they first met and moved to Australia. 


David And Victoria Beckham

At a soccer game in 1997, David Beckham and the-then Victoria Adams were first introduced to each other. With their love quickly escalating, David proposed to Victoria within the first year of their meeting with a marquise-shaped diamond ring.

They welcomed their first child in March 1999 and got married four months later on July 4. In their 20-years-and-counting of marriage, they had three more children and exchanged vows again in 2017. Their story proves that true love does exist!


Freddie Prinze Jr. And Sarah Michelle Gellar

Without a doubt, Freddie and Sarah were the “it” couple of the 1990s. You’d be pleased to know that they are still happily together 20 years later. The actress of Buffy the Vampire Slayer fame and the handsome heartthrob of the teen comedy She’s All That met in 1997 on the set of the horror slasher, I Know What You Did Last Summer.

During an accidental encounter in Mexico years later, it wasn’t until then that the co-stars became more than just friends. And, in 2002, they tied the knot at a Mexican resort. Seven years after, they welcomed Charlotte Grace first in 2009 and then Rocky James in 2012.


Michael Douglas And Catherine Zeta-Jones

For the past 20 years, Michael and Catherine Douglas have been married to each other. They first met in August 1998 at the Deauville American Film Festival in France after being introduced by Danny DeVito. On November 18, 2000, they had their wedding at New York’s Plaza Hotel.

Michael and Catherine have two children, Dylan, 19, and Carys, 19. Michael’s son, Cameron, 42, comes from his previous relationship. After a brief separation in 2013, the pair are still together to this day. 


Jay-Z And Beyoncé

This celebrity couple began dating in 2001, even though they met a year prior. They secretly wed on April 4, 2008. Due to the nature of being in the public eye, there were many cheating allegations pertaining to their relationship. Even Jay-Z admitted to his infidelity in June 2017 but is grateful that Beyoncé forgave him.

They have three children: Blue Ivy who was born in 2012 and two twins, Sir and Rumi, who were born in 2017. For over 20 years, the couple has been staying strong! 


Tim McGraw And Faith Hill

As one of the longest-lasting couples in the music business, Tim McGraw and Faith Hill are still together! Both avid fans and lovers of country music, they first met briefly in 1994. They weren’t reunited, however, until 1996 when they went on their joint tour – this was where they truly became close.

Having been married for 25 years and counting, the two have been involved in a few recording projects together. In addition to appearing on television and raising three daughters, Tim and Faith continue to remain happy with their lives. 


Mark Consuelos And Kelly Ripa

As one of the sweetest meet-cute stories in Hollywood, Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos met on the set of All My Children in 1995. With the instant chemistry and sparks flying, and, after Consuelos joined Ripa’s daytime drama as her love interest, they started becoming more intimate. 

Source: Barry King/ WireImage and Jeff Kravitz/ FilmMagic

Although their first year together was wonderful, they did split temporarily. The split didn’t last long, as Ripa noted later on. In 1996 the following week, the two got married in Las Vegas. They’ve welcomed three children into the world: Lola, 21, Michael, 25, and Joaquin, 19. 


Will Smith And Jada Pinkett Smith

In 1994, even though Jada Pinkett Smith actually auditioned for a role in The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, she and Will’s relationship was developed off-screen. It was in 1997 that the two tied the knot. After 28 years of marriage, Will and Jada’s two children are also in the limelight: Willow, 21, and Jaden, 23.

Source: SGranitz/ WireImage and Mike Coppola/ Getty Images

Trey Smith is Will’s first son from a separate marriage. Jada confirmed in 2020 that she had dated August Alsina while she and Will were on a break, and the media was buzzing with that news. 


Ted Danson And Mary Steenburgen

After Ted Danson ended his second divorce (which was with Whoopi Goldberg), he and Mary Steenburgen met. The two married each other after meeting two years prior on the set of Pontiac Moon. Ted and Mary secured their marriage on October 7, 1995.

Danson became a stepfather to Lilly and Charlie after their wedding, and Steenburgen stepped into the role of stepmother to Alexis and Kate. They’ve been married for 25 years and have never left their honeymoon phase! Now, that’s a true and rare kind of romance. 


Elton John And David Furnish

Elton John and David Furnish met each other in the most unexpected way while at a mutual friend’s dinner party in 1993. With the chemistry off the charts, the two set up their first date the day after the party. 

Source: KMazur/ WireImage and David M. Benett/Contributor via Getty Images

Becoming civil partners in December 2005, John and Furnish got married nine years later because same-gender marriage was legalized. The couple is parents to two sons: Zachary Jackson Levon Furnish-John (who was born in December 2010 through a surrogate), and Elijah Joseph Daniel Furnish-John (born in January 2013 through the same surrogate). 


Matthew Broderick And Sarah Jessica Parker

Because of their combined love for theater, Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick met in 1991. They got married in 1997, a year before Parker’s hit HBO series premiered. In the span of their being together for nearly 30 years, they had three children: Tabitha Hodge, James Wilkie, and Marion Elwell.

The couple’s 25th wedding anniversary was on May 19, 2022. Parker posted on her Instagram a photo of her leaning against Broderick and another one of their wedding invitation to honor their anniversary. 


Kevin Bacon And Kyra Sedgwick

Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick have been married for more than three decades, and their love knows no bounds! They first met each other in the 1970s when Bacon was performing in a play. On June 23, 1988, the two had their first child, Travis. 

Source: Rick Maiman/Sygma via Getty Images and Stefanie Keenan/VF22/ WireImage for Vanity Fair

Bacon and Sedgwick welcomed Sosie, their youngest child who is also an actress, on March 15, 1992. For 34 years, the pair have raised two children, tried to stay out of the tangled web of Hollywood, and still remain in love.


Tom Hanks And Rita Wilson

In the early 1980s, while starring on the ABC sitcom Bosom Buddies, Hanks and Wilson became acquainted with one another. Even though at the time, Samantha Lewes was Hanks’ sweetheart, their relationship went public in 1986. After Hanks and Wilson began dating, the couple married two years later in 1988. 

Source: Barry King/ WireImage and Jeff Spicer/ Getty Images

The couple had two children: Truman Theodore Hanks and Chester “Chet” Hanks. They have been partners (both professionally and personally) for a long time. Not only have they acted together, but they’ve also made films, raised two sons, and supported each other during their weakest moments. 


Stedman Graham And Oprah Winfrey

In 1986, when Oprah Winfrey’s show debuted, she had begun dating Stedman Graham. Miraculously, the pair are still together to this day. They didn’t have any children together for nearly 40 years of marriage, but Graham does have a daughter from another relationship. In 2015, he also became a grandfather. 

Source: Ron Davis/ Getty Images and Paul R. Giunta/ Getty Images

Winfrey and Graham called off the wedding a year after their engagement. However, it was rumored that they secretly tied the knot from a fabricated report from a magazine. Some believe that if they would have gotten married, their relationship wouldn’t have lasted. 


Christopher Guest And Jamie Lee Curtis

Well, this certainly doesn’t happen much anymore! After Curtis discovered Guest in a 1984 magazine, she contacted him about going out. Amazingly, she heard back from him and went out on a date the following day. The two got married in December of that same year.

Source: SGranitz/ WireImage and JNI/Star Max/ GC Images

Curtis and Guest have two adopted children: Annie, 35, and Ruby, 26. On July 29, 2021, they announced that their son, Thomas, was transgender. Thomas became Ruby in March 1996.  


Kurt Russell And Goldie Hawn

Russell and Hawn started dating after their prior marriages ended in 1983. It was that very year that they met each other on the set of Swing Shift. Hawn fell in love with Russell after he told her this corny pick-up line: “It looks like you have a great figure.” 

Source: Barry King/ WireImage and Gregg DeGuire/ WireImage

In 1983, they had their first child, Wyatt, while also being responsible for raising their children from the other marriages. Along with Wyatt, they raised Hawn’s children, Oliver and Kate, as well as Russell’s son, Boston. The couple has been dating for nearly 40 years, but they don’t have any plans of getting married yet. 


Ozzy And Sharon Osbourne

In 1970, Ozzy’s second wife, Sharon, was introduced to the rockstar. Their relationship turned romantic in 1979 when she was only 18 years old. 

Source: Getty Images and Zimbio/ Pinterest

Ozzy and Sharon got married in 1982, later becoming parents to Kelly, Aime, and son, Jack. They did split a second time but returned to renew their vows in 2017. It’s wonderful that the couple came back to each other and continued sharing their lives together!


Lily Tomlin And Jane Wagner

Tomlin and Wagner got married in 2013 on New Year’s Eve after being together for more than four decades. Wagner was an actress on the show Desperate Housewives and Tomlin had been in the business since the mid-1960s. Wagner didn’t foresee that same-gender marriage would become legal while she was alive.

The couple made the decision to not have any kids because of all that’s happening in the world. They did, however, celebrate their 50th anniversary in 2020. 


Enrique Iglesias And Anna Kournikova

The two have been married for 21 years and are also parents to three children. Not much (aside from this) is known about their relationship, though. Iglesias and Kournikova, who is a famous tennis player, met in December 2001 while filming Iglesias’ “Escape” music video. Anna played his love interest.

In January 2018, they announced that they were expecting two children: Nicholas and Lucy. The twins were born on December 16, 2017. They are still together to this day. 


Courtney B. Vance And Angela Bassett

As Hollywood legends, Vance and Bassett first met while at Yale School of Drama – and that’s where they quickly took a liking to each other. Their success hasn’t only been reflected in their acting careers, but also in the longevity of their marriage. 

Source: SGranitz/ WireImage and Axelle/Bauer-Griffin/ FilmMagic

Since tying the knot on October 12, 1997, the happy pair have been together for 24 years and counting. They became parents in 2006 with the welcoming of fraternal twins, Slater and Bronwyn. 


Nick Offerman And Megan Mullally

While they were acting in a play together in 2000, Offerman and Mullally met. Nick’s appearance wasn’t that cute, as Megan recalls. Despite that statement, they have been married for 17 years. Offerman and Mullally have been collaborators on many projects, including Megan’s sitcom smash hit. 

Source: Michael Schwartz/ WireImage and Daniele Venturelli/ WireImage

They don’t have any kids, even though they have been married for quite a long time. But, they still have a lot of love for each other, and even co-wrote a book that was published in 2018. It’s called The Greatest Love Story Ever Told


Ben Stiller And Christine Taylor

Having co-starred in a host of projects together, Stiller and Taylor have been married since 2000. They did hit a bumpy road but got through it. Their relationship never definitively ended, and Taylor, 50, and Stiller, 56, shared how they rekindled their marriage after, nearly five years ago, they got separated. 

Source: J. P. Aussenard/ WireImage and Bruce Glikas/ WireImage

The pair didn’t date others while they were split up, a source divulges. They did announce in February 2022, that they were getting back together. Stiller and Taylor have two children, Ella and Quinlin. 


Hugh Jackman And Deborra-Lee Furness

Jackman and Furness have had one of the most fortunate Hollywood relationships. With an age gap of 13 years, the two Australian actors have been dating since the mid-1990s, which reaffirms that age is truly just a number.

Source: Paul Hawthorne/ Getty Images and Dominique Charriau/ WireImage

The couple’s wedding rings have a special Sanskrit message inscribed on them. The rings were exchanged between Jackman and Furness in Melbourne, Australia on April 11, 1996 – it wasn’t even a year since they had first met each other! The pair made the choice to adopt: one daughter in 2000 and another in 2005. 


Rob And Amber Mariano

Rob was a competitor on the reality show Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains and subsequently became the Sole Survivor two seasons later on Survivor: Redemption Island. Mariano got engaged to Amber during the season finale and, in 2005, their wedding special aired on CBS. The two have been together ever since that fateful day!

Their first daughter, Lucia Rose, was born into the world in 2009. Carina Rose, their next child, was born in 2010. In 2012, the family welcomed Isabetta Rose, and then Adelina Rose in 2014. 


Samuel L. Jackson And LaTanya Richardson

While they were in college, Jackson and Richardson Jackson first met. And, it’s been over four decades since they tied the knot! The couple is serious about staying together and has promised each other to stick with their marriage. 

Source: SGranitz/ WireImage and Momodu Mansaray/ Getty Images

They got married in 1980, and their producer daughter, Zoe, is an Emmy winner. The pair have said that their dedication to remaining in a relationship (and their obvious love for one another) is keeping them going. Again, true love prevails here!


Peter Saarsgard And Maggie Gyllenhaal

Since 2009, actors Peter Saarsgard and Maggie Gyllenhaal have been married. They have two children: Gloria, 9, and Ramona, 15. In April 2006, they got engaged and tied the knot in a small chapel in Brindisi, Italy on May 2, 2009.

Source: Evan Agostini/ Getty Images & Ben Gabbe/ Getty Images for Adeam

Most recently, they collaborated on the 2021 psychological drama The Lost Daughter. It was Gyllenhaal’s first directorial film debut and featured Saarsgard prominently. The couple remains happily married and continues sharing their passion for movies. 


Matt Damon And Luciana Barroso

Matt, 51, and Luciana, 46, have kept their private lives out of the public eye since their 2005 wedding. It’s no surprise that tabloid gossip and rumors destroy many celebrity marriages, but that’s an aspect of fame that’s hardly affected their marriage. Eight years after their first wedding, the pair renewed their vows on St. Lucia, a Caribbean island, in 2013. 

Source: Dave Hogan/ Getty Images & Kevin Winter/ Getty Images

Before becoming a biological father, Damon was a stepfather. In 2006, the couple welcomed Isabella into the world, Gia in 2008, and Stella in 2010. They still remain happily together and enjoy life.


Ice-T And Coco

Shortly after meeting on a music video set, rapper Ice-T (Tracy Morrow) and the model, Nicole Natalie Austin, got married in 2005. The couple is the perfect match despite their 20-year age gap. Ice-T and Coco Austin welcomed their daughter into the world in 2015. 

Source: Getty Images/ Alamy

Over the years, their relationship has received much criticism. In 2021, they celebrated their 21st wedding anniversary, and many people were shocked to discover how long they’d been married. It’s no easy feat surviving marriage in this crazy industry, but they’ve found a way to make it work. 


David Boreanaz And Jaime Bergman

With their original wedding scheduled for September 11, 2001, they had to postpone it to 11 days later. Boreanaz and Bergman have a son, Jaden, and a daughter, Bella, but their story isn’t all sunshine and rainbows. 

Source: Kevin Winter/ Getty Images & Michael Tran/ FilmMagic

A former mistress threatened to sell her story, and, David, who starred in the popular crime drama series Bones, confessed to his wife about cheating. He admitted that he was “irresponsible” and vowed to reunite with Bergman, his wife of nine years. 


Will Ferrell And Viveca Paulin

For most of Will Ferrell’s career, Viveca Paulin, his wife, has been right by his side. The two first met in an acting class and, in 1995, they dated for a short period of time before separating. Luckily, they found each other again and got married in 2000.

Source: Robert Mora/ Getty Images & Cindy Ord/ Getty Images

Since reuniting, their marriage has resulted in having three sons: Mattias, Magnus, and Axel. How do Ferrell and Paulin continue to have such a successful marriage? Well, humor plays a very important part. 


Brad Paisley And Kimberly Williams

Brad Paisley and Kimberly Paisley-Williams tied the knot at Stauffer Chapel on the Pepperdine University campus on March 15, 2003. The pair has two boys, Jasper Warren, who was born into the world in 2009, and William Huckleberry, born in 2007.

Source: SGranitz/ WireImage & Bryan Bedder/ Getty Images for The Michael J. Fox Foundation

Every year, Brad and Kimberly celebrate their marriage anniversary in a very sweet and unique way. The singer and actress make a chart of their favorite moments from the past year and put them in a special journal.


Don Gummer And Meryl Streep

Gummer and Streep first met in 1978 while Streep was grieving the passing of her co-star and then-boyfriend, John Cazale. To make matters worse, she was also evicted from the apartment they had lived in together. Six months later, in September 1978, Gummer and Streep got married in her parent’s garden.

Source: Tom Wargacki/ WireImage & Kevin Mazur/ WireImage

The couple is proud parents of four children. They have three daughters: Grace Gummer, Mamie Gummer, and Louisa Gummer, and their only son, Henry Gummer. To this day, they are still happily together. 


Michael J. Fox And Tracy Pollan

In 1985, while working on the smash hit sitcom Family Ties, Fox, 61, and Pollan, 62, met each other. Although, their relationship actually began when they worked together on the 1988 film Bright Lights, Big City. Their marriage has lasted for 34 years and continues to go on.

Source: Magma Agency/ WireImage & Nicholas Hunt/ Getty Images for Tribeca Film Festival

The couple has four children: Sam, Aquinnah, Schuyler, and the youngest of the four daughters, Esmé. Over the last 30 years, Fox and Pollan have endured a lot of struggles, mostly from battling illness. To this day, they remain happily by each other’s sides through it all. 


Denzel And Pauletta Washington

Denzel and Pauletta have been married for nearly four decades – a rather rare occurrence in Hollywoodland. The pair have gone through countless ups and downs throughout their almost 40 years of marriage, but continue to remain close. On June 25, 1983, Denzel and Pauletta tied the knot.

Source: Jeff Kravitz/ FilmMagic Inc & Emma McIntyre/ Getty Images

The Washingtons went to South Africa after renewing their vows in 1995. In 1987, they had their first child, John, and their second child, Katia, in 1988. In 1991, they had their twin children, Olivia and Malcolm. 


Robert Downey Jr. And Susan Levin

During the production of the psychological thriller Gothika is where Robert and Susan first met and Susan produced it. A month later, Robert popped the question to Susan. In 2004, the two appeared on The Oprah Winfrey Show where they revealed all the details of their engagement. 

Source: L. Cohen/ WireImage & Axelle Bauer-Griffin/ FilmMagic

On August 27, 2005, the couple got married nearly two years after their engagement. Robert and Susan’s first daughter, Avri Roel, was born on November 4, 2014. Susan is the stepmother of Robert’s first child, Indio Falconer Downey, from his first marriage. Indio was born in 1993.


Ryan Reynolds And Blake Lively

In 2010, Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively first met on the set of Green Lantern. During that time, they were both in relationships, but, in 2011, they ended those and began dating each other.

Source: Lester Cohen/ WireImage & Monica Schipper/ Getty Images for Netflix

Contrary to what most people thought, Ryan and Blake actually made it. Despite their 11-year age difference, they proved everybody wrong. They tied the knot in 2012 and are still happily married. They are parents to three children and there’s a fourth baby on the way. 


Paul Thomas Anderson And Maya Rudolph

Anderson and Rudolph have been an item since 2001. They’ve never revealed to the public how they met and are very private about their lives. Most people assume that the comedy actress and her director husband met on the set of Saturday Night Live. 

Source: Kevin Mazur/ WireImage

As far as we know, the two have never tied the knot (at least, not publicly). However, Paul and Maya do have four children. Is secrecy the key to maintaining a Hollywood relationship? Who knew? 


Matthew McConaughey And Camila Alves

It was at a club in 2006 when McConaughey and Alves first met each other. The connection was immediate, according to Matthew. He said, “She showed up, and she moved right to left in front of my eyes across that club.”

Source: Marcel Thomas/ FilmMagic & Tara Ziemba/ WireImage

Even though they’re 12 years apart in age, that obviously has no effect on their relationship. Matthew remains acting and Camila continues to fulfill her modeling career. The two are happily married and are parents to three children. 


Prince William And Kate Middleton

In 2004, Prince William and Kate Middleton met when they were both students attending St. Andrews University. Unfortunately, the two broke up in 2007 but got back together a few months later. 

Source: Mike Marsland & WireImage/ Getty Images

They got married in 2011, officially making Kate a part of the royal family. As a real-life Cinderella, Kate is still living out a fantasy with Prince William. The two have three children together and they’re now Wales’ new Prince and Princess. 


Neil Patrick Harris And David Burtka

While David was with a mutual friend of theirs in New York, he and Neil had a chance encounter. David was seeing somebody at the time, but he ran into Neil later on and they formed a friendship. 

Source: Michael Tran/ FilmMagic & Taylor Hill/ WireImage

It didn’t take long for Harris and Burtka’s relationship to become romantic and they officially started dating. And, as of last year, the pair have been together for nearly two decades. They have two children together, too, and are living a happy life. 


Seth Rogen And Lauren Miller

In 2004, Rogen and Miller met through a mutual friend. The actors have been married since 2011 and seem to be very content with their lives. When they were asked about having children, the two made it clear that they don’t intend to have any. 

Source: Vince Bucci/ Getty Images & Michael Kovac/ Getty Images for Moët and Chandon

Additionally, Rogen shared some insight into their relationship. He said, “We have so much fun. I don’t know anyone who gets as much happiness out of their kids as we get out of our non-kids.


Harrison Ford And Calista Flockhart

Flockhart is 23 years younger than Ford and they met at the 2002 Golden Globes awards show. The two actors dated for a whole eight years before getting hitched. Maybe that’s the trick, considering they’re still together today. 

Source: Jim Spellman/ WireImage & Todd Williamson/ Getty Images

Calista has an adopted son, Liam, whom Ford helped her raise. From previous marriages, Ford himself has four children. Seeing as this is Ford’s third marriage, it proves that the third time is truly the charm. Certainly, this gives us hope. 


LeBron James And Savannah Brinson

Nobody should accuse Savannah Brinson of being a golddigger. The interior designer has been with LeBron James, her husband, since high school – which was way before he joined the NBA. 

Source: Johnny Nunez/ WireImage & Johnny Nunez/ Getty Images for Remy Martin

In 2013, the couple finally tied the knot, and they’ve done a wonderful job of navigating LeBron’s fame. They have three kids together: Bronny, Bryce, and Zhuri. Brinson is mostly in charge of raising them because of James’ hectic schedule. 


Julius Tennon And Viola Davis

Davis and Tennon met on the set of City of Angels, a medical drama, in 1999. They’ve been married since 2003 and are still together to this day.

Source: Angela Weiss/WireImage & Amy Sussman/Getty Images for Palm Springs International Film Society

Tennon has two children from prior relationships, with whom Davis has become a stepmother. And, on the flip side, Davis has an adopted daughter to whom Tennon is a father. Tennon has had two previous marriages, but this is one that will definitely last. 


John Krasinski And Emily Blunt

John Krasinski and Emily Blunt first met in 2008, when she was with a mutual friend at a restaurant. Both the actors say they fell in love at first glance. The couple got engaged after less than a year of dating each other and are still happily together.

They have two daughters together named Hazel and Violet. The pair are notorious for working together on film projects, such as the horror/thriller franchise A Quiet Place, which has become a massive success. 


Ben Falcone And Melissa McCarthy

Fellow actors, Ben Falcone and Melissa McCarthy, have played a couple recently on God’s Favorite Idiot, a Netflix show. It’s highly certain the reason their on-screen chemistry was so terrific is due to the fact that they’re actually married in real life.

Source: Jeffrey Mayer/ WireImage & Steve Granitz

The couple first met in 1998 in a comedy writing class. They jokingly said that they’ve been on “the very same page” ever since that meeting. McCarthy and Falcone are a happy couple with two daughters, Vivian and Georgette.


Carey Hart And Pink

Throughout their relationship, Pink and Carey Hart have gone through a lot. Hart, a professional race car driver, and Pink met at the Summer X Games in 2001 and got engaged in 2005. Although they broke up briefly, they got back together in 2006.

Source: Jeff Kravitz/Film Magic, Inc & Alberto E Rodriguez/ Getty Images

The pair have taken more breaks during the course of their marriage, yet they always work it out. 2022 was the pivotal year that they’ve been together for 16 years and have raised two children together.


Javier Bardem And Penélope Cruz

Bardem and Cruz are known for keeping their relationship separate from their public lives, despite them both being notable Hollywood actors. Most people do know that, in 1992, they met on the set of Jamón Jamón, a Spanish comedy/drama.

Before becoming romantically involved, they were first friends. But, that changed almost a decade later when they reunited during the filming of Vicky Christina Barcelona. They tied the knot in 2010 and are parents to two children, Luna, their daughter, and Leon, their son.


Swizz Beatz And Alicia Keys

Famous singer, Alicia Keys, and record producer, Swizz Beatz, have been a couple since 2008. They met when they were teenagers, yet it wasn’t really love at first sight. Alicia has shared her first impression of Beatz, “Everything with him is really over the top. I used to see him and think, ‘He is so annoying.’”

Source: Jamie McCarthy/ WireImage for Niche Media & Rachel Murray/ Getty Images
