It’s fun to follow the romantic lives of celebrities. Watching the revolving door of relationships and the people that your favorite celebrities hook up with can be a full-time job. Especially in the world of rap, where it seems like there’s a new “it” couple almost daily. From Chance the Rapper to Gucci Mane, the rappers on this list may be iconic — but behind every great man, there’s an even greater woman. These rappers’ wives and girlfriends are way out of their husband’s league!

Jay-Z and Beyoncé

It might have shocked some when the initial news broke that Beyoncé was dating rap icon Jay-Z. But, this couple seems to have made it last and become one of the most popular couples in the rap and music industry.

Instagram // @beyonce

Let’s be honest — though Jay-Z is a super talented producer/musician and a pretty intelligent guy, he’s not the best-looking gentleman. But, standing next to his amazing wife, he absolutely shines bright!

Dre and Nicole Young

There are a handful of rappers that, when you say their names, Hall of Fame status comes to mind. Many of these hail from the ’80s and early ’90s, though, perhaps one of the biggest stars to come out of that era is Dr. Dre.

In 1996, Dr. Dre found his soulmate in Nicole Young. They’ve been married for 15 years and have several children together. But, when you see them side by side, it’s easy to see that this beautiful woman might be a little out of his league.

Ice Cube and Kimberly Woodruff

When we think of rappers nowadays, many think of talented lyricists who aren’t as talented at keeping a girlfriend for longer than a week. But, many old-school rappers actually have managed to maintain a romantic relationship for lengthy periods of time.

Facebook // Strapped Archives

Ice Cube may be better known as an actor nowadays, but he was one of the founding fathers of rap in the ’80s. and during almost his entire career, he’s been involved with Kimberly Woodruff, a stunning woman he was lucky enough to make fall in love with him.

LL Cool J and Simone Smith

LL Cool J is not a bad-looking guy. In fact, many women would happily put him on their heartthrob list. Even still, when you see him with his wife of 15 years, you might notice that he definitely found someone that was a little out of his league.

Instagram // @simoneismith

Simone Smith isn’t just an amazing and loving mother, but she’s also a shrewd businesswoman with an amazing sense of style. Not only is she beautiful, but she’s incredibly intelligent, too.

Swizz Beatz and Alicia Keys

Alicia Keys is one of the most talented and beautiful singer-songwriters in the industry today. In this power couple, it’s hard to decide who’s the bigger star.

Instagram // @aliciakeys

Swizz Beatz, who’s talented in his own right, nabbed the singer’s heart and wound up becoming her one and only. He’s a lucky man.

Machine Gun Kelly and Megan Fox

Machine Gun Kelly and Megan Fox met on the set of the movie, “Midnight in the Switchgrass,” and struck up a friendship. She had just separated from her husband at the time, Brian Austin Green, and had yet to be divorced before rumors started spreading that the rapper and the Hollywood star had begun dating.

Facebook // Machine Gun Kelly

Since then, these two have become one of the hottest it couples in Hollywood. Turning up on different red carpets for the last two years, they’ve just recently gotten engaged.

Wyclef Jean and Marie Claudinette

Wyclef John is a super talented musician and artist who has had a successful solo career and was a part of the iconic group, The Fugees. On top of the music, he’s also had more social ambitions, and through all of this, his beautiful wife stood by him.

Reviewit // Sidra Mamoon

Marie Claudinette is a stunning beauty with her own successes under her belt. However, seeing the two together does look a bit like the odd couple.

Snoop Dogg and Shante Broadus

Snoop Dogg is an iconic rapper that, no matter what type of rap you listen to, we’re sure he’s in your playlist somewhere. Though he’s talented, incredibly smart, and business savvy, he’s not the most handsome man.

Shutterstock // s_bukley

So, when you see the beautiful smiling face of his wife, Shante, you might wonder how he managed to catch her favor. We’re not sure of the story, but one thing’s for sure, these two are ride or die — they’ve been through quite a bit and are still going strong.

LA Reid and Erica Holton

A lot of guys, especially when they’re in their teenage years, have crushes on their teachers. LA Reid might have been one of those that found a roundabout way of making that boyhood fantasy a reality. This well-known record producer found love with a beautiful school teacher.

Famousfix // Mfplayboy

Erica Holton has been with the record producer for years, and the two of them have several children. Her stunning beauty definitely draws people’s attention.

Big Boi and Sherlita Patton

Starting as a member of the rap group Outkast, Big Boi has absolutely built a career for himself. Once the band had separated, he went on to make his solo career. While he worked on his career, he fell in love with a beautiful woman and married her.

Instagram // @bigboi

Sherlita Patton is a stunning beauty that the rapper is more than willing to show off. Though when he does, we’re sure there are at least one or two people that look and wonder how he managed to capture her heart.

Ja Rule and Aisha Murray

Sometimes, the relationship between a rapper and their significant other manages to stand the test of time. Ja Rule, for instance, is married to Aisha Murray, who he has been dating since junior high.

Facebook // Kerokaboy

The two have been head-over-heels for each other for quite a while and eventually wound up getting married. While she’s quite the beauty, it doesn’t look like she feels that she ever settled.

Paul Wall and Crystal Wall

There are a ton of reality TV shows out there, including one that focused on the wives of rappers. One of the rappers covered in this was Paul Wall, and when the audience was introduced to his significant other, they were pretty shocked at what they saw.

Twitter // @freakymarko

Not only was Crystal Wall beautiful, but she was super intelligent and classy. Definitely not a woman that many would have thought would wind up with this rapper.

Macklemore and Tricia Davis

Macklemore himself is pretty handsome but his wife, Tricia Davis truly shines. His beautiful wife isn’t just a pretty face — she’s a fierce businesswoman with a real talent for management. While she lets her husband stand in the spotlight, she takes care of all the behind-the-scenes work.

Instagram // @macklemore

Not only is she Macklemore’s tour manager, but she also uses her extensive education to handle all of the marketing, public relations, and branding for his shows. These two powerhouses are full partners in life and in the industry and we absolutely love it!

Ludacris and Eudoxie

Ludacris is a super talented rapper and actor who, though not traditionally handsome, is definitely good-looking. Even with that, though, you might be a little surprised when you see him with his wife, Eudoxie.

Shutterstock // Kathy Hutchins

A graduate of the University of Miami, this beautiful young woman seems well out of this superstars league. But, clearly, they couldn’t care less what we think of them. Good for them!

Miguel and Nazanin Mandi

It almost seems strange, nowadays, for a couple to stay together for so long, especially when dealing with the music industry. But, Miguel and Nazanin started a relationship when they were young adults. They dated for a long time and eventually got engaged in 2016 and married in 2018.

Shutterstock // DFree

Although, after 17 years together, there reported having some marital troubles that caused them to split up for a while. However, they recently got back together and are trying to work through all their difficulties.

E40 and Tracy

It seems that love can last despite the many challenges of the music industry. Just ask iconic rapper E40 and his beautiful wife, Tracy. They met while in high school in the Bay Area and became inseparable.

Instagram // @e40

The two have a beautiful family and have been together for more than 30 years. It’s such a beautiful story, and we’re so lucky that the rapper chooses to share it with us.

Kid Ink and Aziah Azante

Kid Ink has been in a long-term relationship with Aziah for over a decade. Like several other famous rap couples, the two met while they were in high school, and since 2004, they’ve become inseparable.

Instagram // @asiiah

They tied the knot in 2016 and welcomed a child together since then. It’s such a beautiful partnership — no matter how challenging their lives become, they stick it out together.

Jim Jones and Chrissy Lampkin

If you’re really into rap music and you love reality TV, then we’re sure that you tuned into B.H. Jones’ “Love and Hip Hop.” One of the main stars on that show is Chrissy Lampkin, who’s the significant other of Jim Jones.

Instagram // @chrissylampkin

The two have been together for quite a while, and, while they do make for a beautiful couple, this stunning woman definitely seems to be a bit out of his league.

Gucci Mane and Keyshia Ka’oir

Gucci Mane has found his place in rap history by really bringing rap music to the forefront. From this, he has garnered quite the bank account, but his wife is just as impressive. She took one idea and turned it into her own fortune.

Instagram // @keyshiakaoir

Not only is she a business mogul herself, but she’s also stunningly beautiful. So beautiful, in fact, that many look at this powerhouse couple in absolute wonder.

Papoose and Remy Ma

This couple has quite an amazing story — they’ve been together since way back in the day. Through all their ups and downs, the rap star and his amazing wife stayed together. And, eventually, the two wound up together on a reality show.

Shutterstock // Jamie Lamor Thompson

That’s really when everyone started to realize that this couple was a little bit of an odd pairing. After all, Remy Ma is quite stunning, and Papoose is just kind of OK. So, it’s no wonder that he fell in love with her the second he laid his eyes on her.

Chance the Rapper and Kirsten Corley

Sometimes, real-life love stories are even better than the Hollywood version. So, when you look at this odd couple and think to yourself that she’s way out of this rapper’s league, all you have to do is listen to the story of how they met, and it’s pretty evident why this relationship works.

Instagram // @kirstencorleybennett

Because their mothers knew each other, the two met at the age of nine at a party, and when Chance saw Kirsten dancing, he immediately told her they should get married. Chance the Rapper is not a bad-looking guy, but his wife is definitely stunning, and together they’ve made some very beautiful children.

J. Cole and Melissa Heholt

Just because one member of the relationship likes to be in the limelight doesn’t mean that they both like it. So, whenever you do get to see J. Cole and his wife out and about together, Melissa Heholt, it’s quite a rare event.

Reddit // r/BeforeFamous

The elusively stunning beauty also has quite the brains, earning herself an MA in childhood education, though she ended up going with a different passion and now works as an event planner.

Ice T and Coco

Few couples in the rap world are iconic. One of those just happens to be Ice T and his beautiful wife, Coco. The rapper and his model wife have been together for years.

Instagram // @coco

Considering she works as a Sports Illustrated model, many of us wonder how Ice T (who is super talented musically and on the screen) was able to find and keep this beautiful woman.

Jeezy and Jennie Mai

Sometimes, romance blooms when you least expect it. Jeezy, a Southern rapper, met Jenny Mai, a celebrity talk show host and stylist, in 2018. The two quickly began dating and eventually, last year, tied the knot.

Instagram // @sancriradioshow

Though they’re clearly incredibly happy together, they do make for a bit of an odd couple as Jenny Mai is this stunning beauty, and Jeezy is just kind of your everyday average joe.

AKA and Nadia Nakai

Sometimes it’s hard to keep the rumor mills from turning, especially when you’re in the limelight like the well-known rapper AKA. So, it isn’t surprising that when he and Nadia Nakai were seen vacationing together, it wasn’t long before everyone was putting them together.

Instagram // @akaworldwide

It took some time before they shared their romance with the world, but they made it Instagram official earlier this year. There have been some ups and downs, along with rumors that they have broken up, but nothing’s been confirmed by the two. In fact, they continue to deny the rumors.

50 Cent and Jamira Haines

50 Cent and Jamira Haines have been dating since 2019, after making their relationship known at the season premiere of the rapper’s hit show, Power, in August of that year. They’ve been through just about everything.

Shutterstock // Kathy Hutchins

Though it doesn’t seem like something that a big tough rapper would do, the couple has even created vision boards for each other in the hopes of growing stronger together.

Nicki Minaj and Kenneth Petty

Sometimes it just takes time to come back to your first love. Nicki Minaj is one of the most well-known women rappers on the planet and has been through several relationships in the public eye.

Instagram // @nickiminaj

But, eventually, she did find her way back to her high school sweetheart Kenneth Petty. Knowing each other since they were 14, the couple began dating after another breakup and soon walked together down the aisle before starting a family.

G Herbo and Taina Williams

No matter how difficult life gets for G Herbo, it seems that his girlfriend is by his side. The couple tends to keep their relationship very private, especially as they’re expecting their child. Dating since 2019, they do take to social media occasionally to share big events.

Twitter // @CultureCentral1

Social media seems to be the place where the rapper likes to share his love for his girlfriend which is quite sweet. Many people think they’re one of the couples to watch out for.

A$AP Rocky and Rihanna

While, yes, this couple hasn’t been together for as long as some of the others on this list, we think they definitely deserve to be here. The love between these two superstars has put a smile on many people’s faces and garnered a lot of support from their collective legions of fans.

Shutterstock // Fred Duval

In the early parts of 2020, rumors spread that Rihanna had broken up with her previous boyfriend, and soon she and the rap star were seen on various red carpets together. We wish them all the happiness in the world!

Notorious BIG and Faith Evans

Though he was taken from the world too soon, the Notorious BIG was one of those rappers that seemed to always be able to find himself a beautiful young woman to be on his arm. For quite a while, that beautiful young woman was fellow musician Faith Evans.

Instagram // @90sanxiety

While these two seemed like an odd couple to many people, it was clearly love at first sight as very shortly after meeting each other, they actually got married — it only took them eight days to know they’d found their happily ever afters!

DJ Khaled and Nicole Tuck

DJ Khaled may be one of the biggest rappers and producers on the planet right now. And over the years, as he gained popularity, we’ve watched as he and his wife, Nicole, have walked down red carpets and enamored themselves to their fans.

Shutterstock // Jamie Lamor Thompson

The two have several children together and love to share their relationship on social media. It’s clear that these two were made for each other.

Mustard and Chanel Dijon

This couple has been together since they were 16 years old! Finally, in October 2018, Mustard got down on one knee and asked for Chanel’s hand in marriage. It took two years to plan the wedding but eventually, in 2020, they got married in a small ceremony.

Facebook // Mustard

It probably wouldn’t have taken as long if he had just asked sooner, but, eventually, they did make their way down the aisle. It seems that these two are planning on being together forever!

Common and Tiffany Haddish

It seems that Common has found himself a significant other that can make him laugh. Humor is a big part of any relationship, and this rapper has found his match in his latest love, comidian/actress, Tiffany Haddish.

Instagram // @buzzfeedceleb

They met up, heated up, and, eventually, became one of the hottest couples to watch. They’ve become such a popular couple that they’ve even been featured in People magazine together.

Lil Durk and India Royale

Together for several years, the couple started dating in 2017, and later that year, welcomed a child. The relationship even spurred a song or two in honor of his love. That’s super cute!

Twitter // @mymixtapez

Lil Durk has no filter when it comes to speaking out about his love and admiration for India. He’s gone on his social media many times and talked about how much he owes her. This is one rapper who knows to treat his woman like the queen she is!

Travis Scott and Kylie Jenner

Travis Scott hit the music world in 2009 but didn’t find fame until 2015 when he released his hit “Antidote.” Because of this newfound popularity, he found himself mixed in with tons of talented and beautiful women that were way out of his league.

Shutterstock // Kathy Hutchins

One of these women happens to be his latest girlfriend who’s a member of the Kardashian-Jenner clan. He’s now become practically tabloid royalty! Seeing pictures of him and Kylie is a little odd because she definitely doesn’t look like she’s in the same league as him.

Mr. Papers and Lil Kim

Mr. Papers and Lil Kim have had a pretty drama-filled relationship. They began dating in 2012, and two years later had a child together, named Royal Reign. They broke up shortly after, in 2015.

Instagram // @mr_papers

After a difficult custody battle, many fans of the two musicians thought it was the end for them. But, after being broken up for five years, the two rekindled their relationship in 2020 and seem to once again be going strong.

Offset and Cardi B

While both Offset and Cardi B are serious artists, we all know who the real superstar in this relationship is. Cardi B’s meteoric rise to fame through social media in the late 2010s has absolutely cemented her as one of the biggest musical acts in the world at the moment.

Shutterstock // Kathy Hutchins

Their relationship has been just as dramatic, with rumors of cheating splitting them up for a time. However, they’ve been officially back (and expecting their second child together) since 2021. From their social media accounts, it looks like they’re in it for the long haul.

Lil Scrappy and Bambi Benson

Though they knew each other before, Lil Scrappy and Bambi only made their relationship official while filming the show Love and Hip Hop. This power couple dated for a few years before officially tying the knot in 2017.

Instagram // @adizthebam

Though Scrappy has a son from a previous marriage, it looks like this blended family is making it work — the two have had three children together in the past four years. And it seems like they love hanging out with all the kids!

Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith

First of all, yes, Will Smith is a rapper, or at the very least, was a rapper. If you don’t believe us just go back and listen to the soundtrack of Men in Black. And let’s not forget his half-rapping as the Genie in Disney’s live-action Aladdin.

Shutterstock // Tinseltown

Through all of that, his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith, has been beside him. The two have had their ups and downs (even splitting briefly), but after two kids and years of marriage, they seem to be as devoted as ever, at least according to the recent Oscars fiasco.

2 Chainz and Nakesha Ward

2 Chainz absolutely knows what a treasure Nakesha Ward is — which explains why he proposed twice, with the second time being on the steps at the 2018 Met Gala. She said yes, and they got married very shortly after.

Shutterstock // Featureflash Photo Agency

But, these two have been together much longer — since 2006, in fact! And they have three kids together — Heaven, who’s 15, Harmony, aged nine, and Halo, who’s six. These two clearly only have eyes for each other!

Michelle White and Childish Gambino

Childish Gambino, a.k.a Donald Glover, is one of the most multi-talented and fascinating stars in the world right now. But, due to his insistence on extreme privacy, not much is known about his personal life, which kind of makes him even more fascinating…

Instagram // @justjared

He and his long-time partner, Michelle White, though, seem very happy together. They’ve been together for years, and it’s pretty clear that he’s head over heels for the mother of his three children, which we absolutely love to see.

Pusha T and Virginia Williams

Pusha T and Virginia Williams have had a surprisingly steady relationship. The two met at an album release party in 2005 and have been together ever since. Eleven years later in 2016, Pusha T finally proposed.

Instagram // @babyginny

They ended up getting married two years later, with Pharrel Williams acting as best man. The small ceremony was pretty star-studded, with celebs like Kim Kardashian and Kanye West in attendance. The couple welcomed their first son in 2020.

Professor Green and Karima McAdams

Professor Green (a.k.a Stephen Paul Manderson) the British rapper and singer, has been a vocal advocate for mental health for many years. And since 2019, he’s not been doing that work alone — his incredible girlfriend, Karima McAdams, can be seen by his side everywhere.

Instagram // @karimamcadams

But, she’s not just a beautiful face. Karima has a career of her own as an artist, model, and actor. She’s also trained in martial arts, which isn’t so surprising when you know she was chosen as the model for Lara Croft in the video game franchise.

Quavo and Saweetie

Quavo and Saweetie have had quite a few ups and downs in their relationship — they even fully broke up for a few months, back in 2021, with Saweetie twitting that she’s single and has “endured too much betrayal and hurt behind the scenes.”

Shutterstock // Tinseltown

Yet, shortly after those tweets, they were seen hanging out together once again. Though it seems that they’re taking things slowly and privately at the moment, quite a few sources have confirmed that they’re giving their relationship another go.

Lil Durk and India Royale

Though they’ve been at the center of several rumored scandals in the five years that they’ve been together, these two definitely feel like they’re in it for life. Lil Durk and India Royale started dating in 2017 and had their first kid together just a year later.

Instagram // @indiaroyale

Though over the years many rumors claimed that they had broken up or cheated on one another, the two have remained steady and got engaged at the end of 2021. While the wedding has yet to happen, we can’t wait to see photos of the crazy party they will most likely have.

Future and Dess Dior

This rap superstar certainly lives up to rapper assumptions — only a few short months after splitting from model Lori Harvey, Future found himself a new beautiful girl. Dess Dior, herself a rapper and internet personality, though, seems to be it for Future.

Instagram // @thejasminebrand

Though many fans believed that they had broken up after rumors of cheating, the two posted on their social media accounts that their relationship is as strong as ever. With all the bejeweled gifts they’ve bought each other, we wouldn’t be surprised if a diamond ring is in their future.

Wiz Khalifa and Aimee Aguilar

While he’s mostly known for his musical rap career, Wiz Khalifa has made the move toward acting in the past several years, and his new girlfriend, Aimee Aguilar, seems to be thinking of expanding her own career in that direction.

Facebook // Scandale chez les stars

The Instagram model and the rap superstar have only been dating a few months but seem to be very happy together. Many of his fans, though, might still be hoping to see him get back together with his ex, supermodel Winnie Harlow.

Pharrell Williams and Helen Lasichanh

While most people would consider him more of an R&B musician, Pharrell Williams has been known to rap quite a bit, too. And he most certainly has a gorgeous wife, which absolutely means he deserves to be on this list.

Shutterstock // DFree

These two knew each other for years as friends before taking a leap of faith and starting a relationship in 2008. They’ve since gotten married and have four kids together — including triplets! That must have been a shock!

The Kid Laroi and Katarina Deme

The Kid Laroi has very quickly become one of the biggest music stars to come out of Australia. He released his first single in 2020 and has since become an overnight sensation! He claims all that success is thanks to his girlfriend, Katarina Deme.

Instagram // @katarina.deme

The 18-year-old rapper and the Instagram influencer met in the summer of 2020 through mutual friends and then spent a year apart, only chatting online. Though both of them are super young, it seems like they’re pretty serious about each other.

Chrissy Teigen and John Legend

Okay, we know that John Legend isn’t exactly a rapper, but we think being an R&B star of his caliber definitely deserves an honorable mention. Besides, we just really love his relationship with his supermodel wife, Chrissy Teigen.

Shutterstock // Tinseltown

These two are probably one of the most wholesome celeb couples at the moment and we just can’t help but love their romantic story. While they’ve had some difficult times recently with the loss of their unborn son, the couple and their two kids look to be stronger and closer than ever!

Big Sean and Jhene Aiko

For over a decade, these two had been friends before gradually working to be more. Starting out as completely platonic in 2012, they hung out for five years until they made it official but kept it quiet at first because they wanted to enjoy their time together.

Shutterstock // Kathy Hutchins

Eventually, in 2018, Big Sean hit social media with a few remarks that made it really clear that the two were a couple and there was no going back.

Lil Yachty and Selangie

Over the past couple of years, Lil Yachty Has been walking through the world with a young lady named Selangie. This fashion designer has her own clothing line and seems to be a really good fit for the rapper.

Instagram // @lilyachty

Both love fashion and have a unique idea of what it means to be in style. So, the Atlanta rapper and the fashion designer often try to find ways to have their outfits match.

Kendrick Lamar and Whitney Alford

Sometimes the best relationships are those that take time to develop. That’s what Kendrick Lamar has with his partner Whitney Alford. They began dating in high school and she has been with him ever since.

Instagram // @afrocentricfilmscollaborative

The two also eventually welcomed a child into their life. Remarkably, even with all his fame, this rapper has somehow managed to keep his personal life quite low-key.

Halle Bailey and DDG

As a young musician in Hollywood, it can be very challenging to keep your love life quiet. For quite a while, though, Halle Bailey had been able to do that. That was until she was caught hanging out with DDG.

Instagram // @ddg

Even after the first images were released, the two didn’t immediately acknowledge their relationship. Eventually, they did via social media, and now their fans can’t get enough of them.

T.I. and Tiny

When you’re in the industry, often, the people you associate with the most happen to also be part of it. This is what happened when Tameka “Tiny” Cottle met T.I. — back when she was the bigger star of the two. The couple has gone through several ups and downs, but in the end, they found a way to make it work.

Instagram // @usatodaylife

T.I. is not an unattractive gentleman, but Tiny is a stunning beauty. While the two don’t seem to fit together at first glance, after everything they’ve been through together, they’re clearly in it for the long haul.

What the Wives of 35+ Actors Who’ve Broken Millions of Women’s Hearts Look Like

(Left) Facebook // Emma Heming Willis | (Right) Shutterstock // DFree

We’ve all spent plenty of time swooning over actors. Whether it’s the muscly Matthew McConaughey, the sweet Paul Rudd, or the dashing Mahershala Ali—and who can blame us? But do you ever wonder who these leading men actually date? Well, we’ve rounded up a list of the partners of Hollywood’s most dashing men. Join us as we meet the wives and girlfriends of some of the actors who’ve broken millions of hearts.

Adam Driver and Joanne Tucker

Some of the actors on this list are very private. And really, we can’t blame them. Who wants long-lens cameras poking out from bushes? Or people running after your car? Not us.

Tumblr // His-Catness-Tchalla

Actor Adam Driver married actress Joanne Tucker in 2013. At one stage they welcomed a son and managed to keep him on the down low for a whopping two years! The only reason the secret was spilled was that Driver’s co-star Channing Tatum slipped up.

Jesse Eisenberg and Anna Strout

Anna Strout was actor Jesse Eisenberg’s longtime girlfriend as they dated for a decade after meeting on a movie set. However, they then split while the star dated his co-star, actress Mia Wasikowska, from 2013-2015.

Facebook // JesseEisenberg

Despite their brief split, it looks like things were meant to be for this pair. They ended up getting back together and tied the knot in 2017. They’re now parents to son Banner and have been spotted volunteering at a domestic violence shelter in NYC.

Henry Golding and Liv Lo

First up we have British-Malaysian actor Henry Golding. The star is best known for playing Nick in Crazy Rich Asians, and for starring in A Simple Favor alongside Blake Lively.

Facebook // Henry Golding

Henry Golding met Taiwanese TV presenter and yoga teacher Liv Lo in 2011. The couple got married in 2016 and welcomed their daughter, Lyla, in 2021. Since then, the actor has commented that being a father “puts everything in perspective.” He said, “It has allowed me to really kind of focus on what really matters in life.”

Aaron Paul and Lauren Parsekian

When Breaking Bad hit TV screens, it made stars out of its entire cast. In particular though, fans loved Aaron Paul as the chaotic yet lovable Jessie Pinkman. Critics loved him too, and he took home the Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actor three times.

Instagram // @laurenpaul8

In his personal life, Aaron Paul has been married to actress and director Laura Parsekian since 2013. They met at Coachella and later married in a Parisian carnival themed ceremony. The couple’s daughter, Story Annabelle, was born in 2018.

Kevin Hart and Eniko Parrish

Comedian and actor Kevin Hart has appeared in many movies and released various comedy albums. The Pennsylvania born star has been married twice, and faced some cheating allegations within his second marriage.

Facebook // Kevin Hart

The comic married Eniko Parrish in 2016 in California. The couple welcomed a son, Kenzo Kash, in 2017, and a daughter, Kaori May, in 2020. Shortly after the birth of their first child, Kevin Hart publicly admitted to cheating on his pregnant spouse. In 2021, they’re still going strong.

Riz Ahmed and Fatima Farheen Mirza

British actor Riz Ahmed is recently married to author Fatima Farheen Mirza. The newlyweds got hitched in 2020 in a secret lockdown wedding. The actor recalled, “We did it in a backyard, which is nice in lots of ways. And I think the nicest thing about it was you didn’t have 500 aunties hanging around you, pinching your cheeks.”

Instagram // @ffmirza

At the 2021 Academy Awards, the couple made viewers swoon when Ahmed stopped to fix his wife’s hair. Couple goals!

Matt Damon and Luciana Bozán

Now here’s an established Hollywood couple. Actor Matt Damon met his wife to be when he was filming a movie in Miami. Two years later, Damon and Luciana Bozán got married in Manhattan. Together, the couple have three daughters named Isabella, Stella and Gia. And Luciana has a daughter, Alexia Barroso, from her previous marriage.

Instagram // @mattdamonfansss

Talking about how they met, Damon said “I literally saw her across a crowded room and eight years and four kids later, that’s my life.”

Patrick Dempsey and Jillian Fink

He’ll forever be one half of MerDer for some of us, but Patrick Dempsey actually has a wife in real life. Shocking, we know. The dashing actor married Jillian Fink in 1999 and the pair are still going strong.

Instagram // @patrickdempsey

Jillian was actually Patrick’s hairstylist for three years before they eventually got together. Now they have three kids together—daughter Talula, and twin sons Sullivan and Darby. Though they did file for divorce in 2015, they later reconciled and called the whole thing off. Phew!

Bruce Willis and Emma Heming

Though he was in a high profile marriage with actress Demi Moore, actor Bruce Willis has long since moved on. Of course, he still appears in family snaps with Demi and their daughters, but he’s been happily remarried since 2009.

Facebook // Emma Heming Willis

Bruce Willis’ wife is English-American model Emma Hemming. Perhaps unsurprisingly she is 23 years younger than her movie star husband. They tied the knot at a stunning ceremony in Turks and Caicos. Together, the couple share daughters Mabel and Evelyn.

Joaquin Phoenix and Rooney Mara

It only makes sense that actors sometimes gravitate to other people that work in their industry. That’s definitely the case with actors Joaquin Phoenix and Rooney Mara. The couple met while working on a movie together in 2012 but didn’t get together romantically for four years.

Joaquin and Rooney, who have an age gap of 11 years, announced their engagement in 2019, but haven’t walked down the aisle yet. However, they do share a son, named River, who was born in 2020.

Mark Ruffalo and Sunrise Coigney

Who can deny the cuteness of actor Mark Ruffalo? No matter what role he plays, we just want to look at his sweet face and walk into the sunset. The star married Sunrise Coigney back in 2000 and they’ve been going strong ever since. When they first met, he was down and out and she encouraged him. He has said, “I don’t know if I would have made it without her.”

Together, the couple have three kids—son Keen daughter Bella and daughter Odette.

George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin

For decades, actor George Clooney was Hollywood’s ultimate bachelor. Most of us thought the silver haired fox would never settle down. However, Amal Alamuddin proved us all wrong.

In 2014, George Clooney married Lebanese-British human rights lawyer Amal in Venice. Three years later, the couple welcomed twins Ella and Alexander. Since marrying her famous hubby, Amal has been praised for her chic style. The Clooneys bought themselves a private island on the River Thames where they live in a stunning mansion.

Andy Samberg and Joanna Newsom

Truly, Andy Samberg’s wife only makes us love him more. The actor married musician Joanna Newsom back in 2013. He was a huge fan of her music before meeting her—how adorable!

Samberg and his harpist wife live on a historical estate in LA and also own a Manhattan property. Together they have a daughter, who was born in 2017. The actor has shared that over lockdown they spent time as a family, “sitting out in the sun or something, dancing in the kitchen.”

Mads Mikkelsen and Hanne Jacobsen

Though he makes a very convincing cannibal, Mads Mikkelsen is also a striking leading man. The Danish star was originally a gymnast and dancer, but then became a successful actor in Denmark. Mikkelsen has been with his wife, choreographer Hanne Jacobsen, since 1987.

Mads Mikkelsen and Hanne Jacobsen got married in 2000 and have two children together—daughter Viola, and son Carl. This long lasting couple live in Denmark but also spend time in Majorca, Spain. Sounds delightful!

Mahershala Ali and Amatus Sami Karim

Actor Mahershala Ali and Amatus Sami Karim have known each other for a very long time. It’s thought that the private couple got married in 2013. Together, the couple have a daughter named Bari Najma who was born in 2017.

When Mahershala Ali won his first Academy Award, he said in his speech, “Lastly, I want to thank my wife, who was in her third trimester during the awards season, we just had a daughter four days ago.”

Christian Bale and Sibi Blažić

From one Oscar winner to another, next up is English-American actor Christian Bale. The star married his wife, former model Sandra “Sibi” Blažić, in 2000 and they’re still together. The couple share two kids—Emmaline and Joseph.

Christian Bale has revealed, “Everyone was divorced in my family so I didn’t have very healthy ideas about marriage. Then I met Sibi and suddenly it seemed a fantastic idea.” Amazingly, Sibi worked as a stunt driver on one of Bale’s movies.

Paul Rudd and Julie Yaeger

The adorable Paul Rudd is a different kind of Hollywood leading man. The star has appeared in comedies and superhero movies, as well as in beloved TV series. Paul Rudd met his future wife Julie Yaeger in a publicist’s office right after his big break in Clueless.

When the star left his backpack behind, Julie Yeager dropped it at his friend’s apartment. After that, Rudd asked her to dinner and they hit it off. The couple got married in 2003.

Chris Hemsworth and Elsa Pataky

There are plenty of people who would like to bag themselves a Hemsworth hunk. They’re undoubtedly some of the most coveted stars in the business, but some of them are taken for good. Actor Chris Hemsworth married wife Elsa Pataky in 2010.

Instagram // @chrishemsworth

Chris Hemsworth and Spanish model Elsa have three children together. Pataky has said of her husband, “He was always trying to be the best dad and has never failed to make me feel like his family is the most important thing to him.”

Oscar Isaac and Elvira Lind

Here’s another Hollywood hottie that’s broken millions of women’s hearts. Guatemalan born American actor Oscar Isaac has appeared in sci-fi thrillers, crime dramas and black comedies. The star married Danish director Elvira Lind in 2017. Together, the couple have two sons.

The star realized he wanted to marry Elvira when he saw her care for his sick mother. He said he wanted “to be with this person forever and ever.” The couple have also worked on creative projects together.

Eddie Redmayne and Hannah Bagshawe

Perhaps your type is more of the award winning English gentleman. Actor Eddie Redmayne boasts an Oscar, a Tony, a BAFTA, and a Golden Globe. That’s not bad! The star tied the knot in 2014 with Hannah Bagshawe, who he had known for many years.

Instagram // @amazingeddieredmayne

The English couple went to neighboring boarding schools and struck up a friendship after a charity fashion show. The actor recalls, “She was very beautiful and very funny and she loves the arts and theater just as I do, so we became friends.”

Matthew McConaughey and Camila Alves

We have to imagine that Camila Alves is a pretty well-known wife of a famous actor. Though not a celebrity herself, Brazilian-American Alves is a model and successful designer in her home country. Matthew McConaughey met the stunning Alves in 2006, and they walked down the aisle in 2012.

Instagram // @camilamcconaughey

Together, this happy couple share two sons named Levi and Livingstone. Unlike many of their celebrity peers, Matthew McConaughey and Camila Alves choose not to rely on nannies.

Eric Bana and Rebecca Gleeson

There are several leading men on this list that met their wives at work. Australian actor and comedian Eric Bana met his wife, Rebecca Gleeson, in the world of TV. She was a publicist working at various networks, and he was a TV star. They met in 1995 and married in 1997.

Shutterstock // Featureflash Photo Agency

Amusingly, Eric Bana was crowned Bachelor of the Year by a magazine in 1996 and used the trip to propose to Gleeson. The couple have two kids—son Klaus, and daughter Sophia.

Idris Elba and Sabrina Dhowre

As if we’d forget about English hunk Idris Elba. The star has been married three times, most recently to Somali-Canadian model Sabrina Dowhre. The couple got hitched in 2019 in a Marrakesh ceremony. Idris commented, “We started dating and I fell head over heels.”

Instagram // @sabrinaelba

In 2021 the couple announced they were launching a lifestyle brand together, including a blog, wellness products and a podcast. He has said of their relationship, “a partnership can bring out the best in you.”

Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and Nukâka

Naturally we also need to mention the handsome leading men of Game of Thrones. Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, who played the long-locked Jaime Lannister on the show, is married to Greenlandic actress Nukâka. The couple got married in 1997 and live in LA with their family.

Instagram // @nikolajwilliamcw

Actress and singer Nukâka is also a former Miss Greenland, and competed for her country in Miss Universe. The couple have two daughters named Philippa and Safina. The family have been spotted together at red carpet events.

Jason Statham and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley

These two make a handsome pair—we like to think of them as the British Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds. That works, right? Actor Jason Statham has been in a relationship with model Rosie Huntington-Whitely since 2010. They got engaged in 2017 and have a son together, though they haven’t tied the knot.

Shutterstock // DFree

Jason, Rosie and son Jack Oscar Statham live in Beverly Hills. In 2021 the celebrity couple announced they’re expecting another baby. Yay!

Amelia Warner and Jamie Dornan

At one stage, fans of Jamie Dornan knew he was dating English actress Kiera Knightley. However, he’s actually been married since 2013. Who knew?! The Northern Irish star met English musician and actress Amelia Warner in 2010 and married her three years later.

Twitter // @SourceJamie

Together, Jamie and Amelia have three daughters. The little cuties are named Dulcie, Alberta and Elva. Speaking about lockdown with the family, the actor and former model said, “it’s kind of been the agony and the ecstasy in the same period of time.”

Hugh Jackman and Deborra-Lee Furness

Much has been said about actor Hugh Jackman’s producer wife Deborra-Lee Furness. Unlike many of his peers who only date younger women, the Australian actor married a woman 13 years older than him. Go Hugh!

Instagram // @thehughjackman

Hugh and Deborra-Lee got engaged just four months after meeting on the set of a TV show. They’ve been married since 1996 and share two adopted children, son Oscar, and daughter Ava. Jackman has said of his wife, “Because that is my foundation, that is the rock.”

Benedict Cumberbatch and Sophie Hunter

The dashing Benedict Cumberbatch is also off the market. The English actor has been married to theatre and opera director Sophie Hunter since 2015. Their home must be awfully dramatic, what with all of their theatre experience.

Twitter // @cumberbatchcom

Benedict and Sophie were actually friends for 17 years before getting together. They got married in the Isle of Wight in 2015 and have since welcomed three sons. Christopher was born in 2015, Hal in 2017, and Finn in 2019.

Dwayne Johnson and Lauren Hashian

Ah to be the woman that Dwayne The Rock Johnson settled down with. Can you imagine? The former wrestler and current movie star married Laura Hashian in 2019, and together they have two daughters. The star was married before, and has a daughter named Simone from this relationship.

Instagram // @therock

Dwayne and Lauren got hitched in Hawaii and live in LA. Their daughters have Disney inspired names—Jasmine, born in 2015, and Tiana, born in 2018.

Leonardo DiCaprio and Camila Morrone

You know the way we just mentioned those actors that only date younger women? Well Leonardo DiCaprio is one of them. While other leading men on this list have age appropriate partners, others will always date women at least several decades younger than them.

Quora // R M

We’ve seen Leo with Blake Lively and Bar Rafaeli in the past, but do you know his current beau? Apparently the star has been with Argentine-American model and actress Camila Morrone since 2017. Currently, he’s 46 while she is 24.

Denzel Washington and Pauletta Pearson

Now this is a Hollywood couple that have really stood the test of time. Actor Denzel Washington married Pauletta Pearson back in 1983 and they’re still standing! The devoted couple are parents to four children—John David, Katia, Olivia and Malcolm. In fact, you’ve probably seen John David starring in some movies of his own.

Shutterstock // Tinseltown

When he accepted the American Film Institute’s life achievement award, Denzel Washington said, “I would not be alive without Pauletta Washington. I wouldn’t survive.”

Sylvester Stallone and Jennifer Flavin

Here’s another Hollywood leading man with a much younger wife. Sylvester Stallone has been married three times in total, but third time was definitely the charm. The actor, director and producer was with model Jennifer Flavin since 1988, but broke up with her when model Janice Dickinson claimed to be pregnant with his child in the early 90s.

Instagram // @jenniferflavinstallone

After that, he got back with Flavin and they made it official in 1997. Now, the couple are parents to three daughters—Sophia, Sistine and Scarlet.

Vin Diesel and Paloma Jimenez

Next we turn to actor Vin Diesel, one of the world’s highest grossing stars. The actor is particularly private about his life and doesn’t give many interviews. He married Mexican model Paloma Jimenez in 2007 and they’ve gone on to have three kids together.

Facebook // Vin Diesel

Their daughter Hania was born in 2008, son Vincent in 2010, and daughter Pauline in 2015. The star’s youngest child is named in honor of the actor’s former co-star, the late Paul Walker.

Jason Momoa and Lisa Bonet

Here’s a relationship with an age gap in the other direction. Much like Australian star Hugh Jackman, actor Jason Momoa married an older woman. Actress Lisa Bonet, who was previously married to rocker Lenny Kravitz, is 18 years older than her hunky husband.

Tumblr //

People first thought that these two got hitched in 2007, but those guesses were out by an entire decade. Together, the couple have two kids—daughter Lola Iolani and son Nakoa-Wolf. Jason is also the stepdad to Zoe Kravitz, Lisa’s daughter.

Robert Downey Jr. and Susan Levin

Before marrying Susan Levin, actor Robert Downey Jr. was in a relationship with actress Sarah Jessica Parker, and then married to actress Deborah Falconer. His addiction issues affected both of these relationships, and he spent time in both rehab and jail.

Facebook // Robert Downey Jr

However, in 2003 the star met Susan Levin, a film producer. She turned him down several times but he persisted, and she eventually fell for him. They got married in 2005 and have two kids together, named Exton and Avri.

Kristofer Hivju and Gry Molvær

And now for some red-headed lovers! This striking pair are both Norwegian, one more familiar to us than the other. Of course, Kristofer Hivju played Tormund Giantsbane on Game of Thrones, leading many beard-loving ladies to fall for him.

Instagram // @khivju

The actor is married to journalist, producer and screenwriter Gry Molvær. Together they share two daughters named Noor and Sylja. Amusingly, several pictures were taken of the couple while they had an argument outside a restaurant in 2016. Hey, it happens!

Ewan McGregor and Mary Elizabeth Winstead

We have another age gap here, this time with Scottish actor Ewan McGregor and his wife Mary Elizabeth Winstead. Ewan was married before meeting Mary, and had four daughters with his then wife Eve Mavrakis. Their relationship ended in 2017.

Instagram // @justjared

That same year, the actor met his new wife on the set of a TV show. Her marriage ended around the same time, so the couple probably had lots in common. Now they share a son, Laurie, born in 2021.

Vince Vaughn and Kyla Weber

In 2008, one of Vince Vaughn’s friends introduced him to Kyla Weber at a wedding. He has since said, “at first I was nervous to date her because it’s one of my best friends’ wife’s best friend from childhood…. If it goes wrong, you’re talking about awkward.” However, it went great, and they got married in 2010.

Shutterstock // Andrea Raffin

Now, Vince Vaughn and Kyla Weber have two kids together. He has described his wife as “a civilian” rather than a fellow A-lister.

Kevin Bacon & Kyra Sedgwick

Let’s give it up for actor Kevin Bacon and his wife Kyra Sedgwick.These two got married in 1988 after meeting on a PBS set. Their relationship has lasted decades and they still proclaim their love publicly. It’s the most adorable thing.

Instagram // @kyrasedgwickofficial

For their 30th anniversary, the actor posted a video of the couple duetting together. He captioned the post, “30 years! I can’t believe it, @kyrasedgwick is the woman of my dreams and the music in my life.”

Samuel L Jackson and LaTanya Richardson

Our next pair are also in this for the long haul. Samuel L. Jackson and LaTanya Richardson both went to nearby colleges and ended up crossing paths. They got married in 1980 and have been together for 50 years. How incredible!

Instagram // @ltjackson_

Together, Samuel and LaTanya have one daughter, named Zoe. LaTanya worked as an actress and producer and also set up a charity along with her husband. She has continued to star in movies and appeared on Broadway. The couple have also acted together.

Tom Hardy and Charlotte Riley

Tom Hardy and Charlotte Riley met while working together in 2009. The English actors got married in 2014 and went on to have two kids together. Much like our previous pair, these two have also starred together on-screen.

Instagram // @charlotterileysource

Tom Hardy is very private about his personal life, especially when it comes to his kids. He has said, “I will pose for you, and photos of me and my wife are fine. But if someone takes a photo of my kids, all bets are off.”

Miles Teller and Keleigh Sperry

When they tied the knot, actor Miles Teller and Keleigh Sperry really went for it. The couple got married in 2019 in Hawaii, and celebrated their engagement before that on safari in South Africa. We would have liked an invite!

Instagram // @keleighsperrynews

These two have been together since 2013 but like to keep their relationship on the downlow. The couple first met at an after party for the Black Keys. Teller recalls, “After we met, I knew she was the one.”

Sterling K. Brown and Ryan Michelle Bathe

In a shocking turn of events, actor Sterling K. Brown and his wife Ryan Michelle Bathe are the same age! Has this ever happened in the history of Hollywood? The actors got married in 2007 but have known each other since college.

Instagram // @ryanmichelleb

After graduating from Stanford, Michelle got her MFA from NYU. Now that’s a smart lady! This cute couple are parents to two sons. In interviews, Brown has shared that he and Bathe think it’s important to show kids all aspects of marriage.

Woody Harrelson and Laura Louie

We close out our list of wives and girlfriends with Woody Harrelson and Laura Louie. Bizarrely, Woody Harrelson was married before, but only did it as a joke. However, when he and his first wife went to have their union annulled the marriage parlor was closed.

Shutterstock // Tinseltown

Anyway, the star married Laura Louie in 2008. The couple met back in 1987 when Laura worked as Woody’s assistant. Now, they have three daughter together—Deni, Zoe and Makani. The Harrelsons reside in Hawaii.

Joseph Fiennes and Maria Dolores Dieguez

If you prefer your leading men dark and brooding, then perhaps you’re a fan of Joseph Fiennes. The English actor has been with his wife, Maria Dolores Dieguez, since 2009. The actor and Swiss-Galician model got married in Tuscany in a Catholic ceremony.

Shutterstock // Kathy Hutchins

Together, the couple shares two children, Sam and Isabel. The actor has said, “My greatest escape is being with my family or going on walks or busting out crazy moves to some Katy Perry song — so pretty normal dad stuff, I think.”
