Beyonce and Jay-Z
Arguably the most famous couple in entertainment, the QUEEN and Jay-Z will be celebrating their 11th anniversary this year. The couple met in the late 90’s and after their hit duet, Bonnie and Clyde in 2003, relationship rumours spread like wildfire. In 2004 the couple confirmed their relationship at the 2004 VMA’s.
(Apparently this outfits were fashionable back then). In 2008 the couple tied the knot in a very private ceremony. 4 years later their first child, Blue Ivy, was born. Up until know they sound perfect, but no ones perfect. Not even Beyoncé (okay she actually is). In 2013, rumours of Jay-Z’s infedility started spreading after hints were noticed in lyrics and after Solange, Beyoncé’s sister, attacked him in an elevator. Beyoncé’s 6th album, Lemonade, confirmed these rumours in 2016. In 2017, Jay-Z released an album, 4:44, which was an also confirmed the rumours and was seen as an apology. Fast forward 3 years, the couple is happily married after renewing their vows in 2018 with their family and 3 children.

Beyoncé shares an equity in Tidal, she set-up a vegan meal delivery service, had a fragrance line named Heat and founded an active wear clothing line named Ivy Park. They share a combined net worth of $1.22 billion, 43 Grammys and continue to be the King and Queen of the world. Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s relationship has shown the world that true love will always prevail.
Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West
The rap genius and the queen of reality TV, an unlikely duo, but we’re inlove with Kimye. The couple met in 2003 when Kim was still Paris Hilton’s wardrobe assistant. According to Kanye, it was love at first sight for him. The first time Kanye really became apart of Kim’s life was from 2010 onwards. He featured on an episode of Kourtney and Kim take New York. In the episode, Kim invited him to “check out” their store because she respected his fashion taste and style. Little did we know this was the first of many times we would see Kanye on reality TV. In 2012, Kim and Kanye started dating and made their relationship public. We started seeing them together more and more in public, Kanye was part of many of the family events and Kim even let Kanye take over her wardrobe. 2012 was a busy year for the couple because on New Years Eve, Kanye announced that they were expecting their first child.
In June 2013 their daughter, North West, was born and just 4 months later Kanye proposed to Kim in a fully rented out stadium. Fast forward 6 years, the couple is happily married, with 3 kids and a combined net worth of $335 million. Kim owns a beauty business named KKW while Kanye has coloborated clothing lines with Nike, Louis Vuitton and Adidas. We can’t help but stan.
Barack and Michelle Obama
Let’s be honest guys, we all want Michelle and Barack to be our parents. The former president and first lady will be celebrating their 27th anniversary this year = GOALS. The couple first met in 1989 at their law firm. Michelle was assigned to be Barack’s mentor at the firm and she obviously became alot more than that. Just 3 years later, the couple got married and Barack said during his vows that he promises Michelle an interesting life. Words are powerful y’all. In 1998 they had their first daughter, Malia, and in 2001 they had their second daughter, Sasha. In 2004 Barack became the state senator for Illinois and just 4 years later, he was sworn in as the president of the United States.

As I reflect on election night ten years ago today, I can’t help but think about where my political career started. I wasn’t running for office. I was running a voter-registration drive in Chicago. What I learned then — and what would become the premise of my 2008 campaign — was that you couldn't just fight for existing votes. You had to reach out to all of these people who had lost faith and lost trust, and get them off the sidelines. So during our first campaign, when I started seeing all these stories about record turnout in communities all over the country — from young people in line for hours in Iowa to elderly folks in lawn chairs down in Florida — I knew that we had shown what is possible when everybody decides to participate. And that, in and of itself, gave people a sense of their own power — their own agency in the kind of country we want to leave for our kids. When more people get off the sidelines and decide to participate, our country becomes a little more representative of its people — of everyone's collective decision. And American politics can change as a result. So on Election Day this Tuesday, I’m not just asking you to vote. I'm asking you to really show up once again. Talk with your friends, convince some new voters, and get them out to vote because then something powerful happens. Change happens. Hope happens. And with each new step we take in the direction of fairness, and justice, and equality, and opportunity, hope spreads.
Fast forward 11 years, Barack retired as president and their family is trying to live a normal life again. Michelle wants to just be able to shop at supermarkets and Barack wants to learn how to use a cellphone now that he’s allowed to own one. Even though the couple isn’t in the limelight as much, we’ll always be fans.

You can’t tell it from this photo, but Barack woke up on our wedding day in October, 1992 with a nasty head cold. Somehow, by the time I met him at the altar, it had miraculously disappeared and we ended up dancing almost all night. Twenty five years later, we’re still having fun, while also doing the hard work to build our partnership and support each other as individuals. I can’t imagine going on this wild ride with anybody else.
Chrissy Teigen and John Legend
This power couple has us stanning for days. Chrissy Teigen, the gorgeous, hilarious supermodel and game show host, and John Legend, the velvet-voiced singer, met at the filming of a music video. John was the singer and Chrissy was the lead female in the video. According to Chrissy, after the filming, they went to John’s hotel room and did you-know-what.
The couple starting dating late 2007 after months of being chatting and being casual. 4 years later, John proposed on vacation in the Maldives and got married in September 2014 at Lake Como in Italy where the couple went on their first vacation. Lake Como is also the location of the All Of Me video. Fast forward 5 years, the couple share 2 children, a $40 million net worth and are still making us wish we were them.
Ellen Degeneres and Portia de Rossi
This is probably the sweetest couple in Hollywood. Portia and Ellen first met at a party in 2000. According to Portia it was love at first sight but she only proclaimed her feelings to Ellen 4 years later because she was still in the closet. The couple made their relationship public in 2005 after Portia finally had the courage to come out to the public. In 2008, the couple got married as soon as the Supreme Court of California made it legal for same sex couples to wed.
Fast forward to 2019, the couple will be celebrating their 11th wedding anniversary this year, they have a combined net worth of $100 million and share all the love in the world.
Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith
They got that Will and Jada kind of love. The couple first met in 1994 when Jada auditioned to be Will’s girlfriend on the show The Fresh Prince of Bel Air. They started dating in 1995 after Will divorced his ex-wife, Sheree Fletcher. On New Years Eve 1997, the couple tied the knot at a mansion in Baltimore, Jada’s hometown. Their relationship hasn’t always been perfect though. There has been many rumours of cheating from both parties and there’s speculation the couple has an open marriage. Damn. BUT, the couple keep reassuring their fans that they are stronger than ever. They share 2 gorgeous children, Jaden and Willow, the share a combined net worth of $320 million and will be celebrating their 22 anniversary this year.

I’m also really proud to be here with @victoriabeckham tonight – her nomination is recognition of the incredible business she has built over the last 10 years, have a great evening #FashionAwards
Becks and Posh Spice are always serving us looks, and we’re referring to their faces as well. This couple and their children are aesthetically flawless. It’s actually quite nauseating. Let’s dig into their life! Becks and Posh Spice met in 1997 at a Manchester United players’ lounge. According to Victoria, it was love at first sight, but every other woman who’s seen David Beckham in person has said this so obviously we weren’t surprised. A short while later, in January 1998, the couple annoyed their hasty engagement. In March 1999, 4 months before their wedding, Victoria gave birth to their first child, Brooklyn. Now we get why the engagement was so hasty. In 2002, the couple had their second son, Romeo. In 2005 they welcomed their third son Cruz and in 2011 they had their only daughter, Harper. The couple will be celebrating their 20th anniversary this year with their 4 children by their side. The couple share a combined net worth of $1 billion, with David being part of the ownership board of Beckham Miami United and Victoria having a largely successful clothing line. We will love Posh and Becks until death do them part.
Prince Harry and Megan Markle
We can’t get enough of Harry and Megan. They’re literally a living fairytale. The couple met in 2016 at a blind date set up by a mutual friend. According to Harry, he knew Megan was his soulmate when they first met. Their relationship accelerated at lightning speed, and just a month later Megan accompanied Harry on a trip to Botswana. The couple dated for a few months, trying to stay as low key as possible, but sources around the couple kept on reporting that they were wildly in love and an engagement was imminent. And then, in November 2017, Harry and Megan announced their engagement. In May 2018 they wed at Windsor Castle. Megan looked like the princess from story books and Harry’s smile was plastered to his face. We stan. And then, just to make our 2018 even better, Megan and Harry announce their expecting their first child. We wish the couple everything of the best. BLESS US WITH MANY BEAUTIFUL CHILDREN.
Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively
Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively are our favourite internet trolls. To be honest, we love their playful online feuds more than them as a couple! The Dead pool star and Blake first met in 2010 when they were both cast as leads for the movie Green Lantern. At the time Ryan was married to Scar Jo and Blake was dating her Gossip Girl co-star, Penn Badgley. By the end of 2010, Blake had broke up with Penn and Ryan filed for divorce. In October 2011, Blake was seen living Ryan’s apartment in the early hours of the morning and dating rumours spread like butter on warm toast. After a few months of dating, Blake and Ryan got married in September 2012. In October 2014 the couple announced they were expecting their first child, James (a girl), who was born in December of 2014. In 2016 the couple announced they were expecting their second child. Fast forward 3 years, the couple share 2 children, a combined net worth of $93 million and continue to make us giggle with their online trolling.
Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth
We grew up with Miley and Liam dating and breaking up, and dating and breaking up some more. But, they’re here to stay, and so are we! The Hunger Games star and Wrecking Ball singer first met on the set of The Last Song movie in 2009. Their onscreen chemistry was almost tangible and we fell in love. In early 2010 the couple announced their relationship, but in August of that year, they announce their first break up. But in September they’re back together. BUT in November they broke up again. Talk about playing with our feelings. In April of 2011 the couple announce they’re back together. In June 2012, Miley and Liam announce their engagement and the world is genuinely overjoyed. This is when Miley’s rebel phase started. Remember, she tried to twerk. In September 2013, they announce their engagement is called off. After this, Liam and seen smooching a Mexican actress and Miley becomes ‘Piley’ with her new love interest, Patrick Schwarzenegger. Their separation lasts a while but in January 2016 Miley is spotted wearing the engagement ring given to her by Liam in 2012. After being engaged for 2 years, Miley and Liam tied the knot in December of 2018. We wish the couple much happiness and no more break ups because we can’t take it anymore.
