One of the greatest benefits of finding true love is the ability to be blind to color, race, and religion and although it has become the norm, interracial romance should still be celebrated. What better way to honor such an epic feat for the human race than taking a look at the greatest interracial celebrity couples ever?

Taken by the creative and sarcastic humor that fills Norwegian-Thai model Chrissy Teigen’s signature tweets, John Legend fell hard for the Sports Illustrated swimsuit hottie. They met in 2007 on the set of John’s “Stereo” music video, and right away, Legend was crushing hard. After that fateful day, they immediately began dating, fell head-over-heels for each other and tied the knot just three years later at a beautiful Italian- style fairytale wedding. As if it wasn’t obvious already, Legend’s “All Of Me” is about the stunning mom and model and the two gave birth to their adorable daughter Luna in April of 2016.
Keep reading to see who else made the list!
KimYe for the Win
Kanye West has never been shy about his feelings for his now-wife Kim Kardashian and even openly admits that he was quite obsessed with her way before they were together. Even while dating personality Amber Rose, West was quoted saying “If Kim had dated me when I wanted, there would be no Amber Rose.”
With an Armenian background coming from Kim and African American from Kanye, the two make quite a power couple and have some seriously cute kids! Kanye has said on Ellen that the two “practice” all the time making kids so let’s see how much more they will have.
Dr. Dre & Nicole Threatt Young
Many decades ago, Dr. Dre promises his fans “Detox”. That is the name of the album that was supposed to be one of the greatest rap albums of this generation. After a decade and a half, he called it off. Maybe he was too busy focusing on his lovely wife to be making history?
Former NWA rapper Dr. Dre found love in the most interesting place: a divorce hearing! Dre’s loving wife of 17 years, Nicole Threatt, is ex-wife to NBA player Sedale Threatt and an out-of-practice attorney. The Caucasian mother of three enjoys life as a socialite with Dre in Los Angeles.
Robert Pattinson & FKA Twigs
After an unstable relationship with ex-girlfriend and co-star Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson found love in a beautiful black British singer who goes by the name of FKA Twigs. Since getting engaged in 2015, the two have been in the press lately with talks of FKA being pregnant with their baby.
A source told E!, “there isn’t a rush to get married.” “Fall plans turned into winter plans and now there are no specific plans, but they still plan on getting married.” There is no doubt that they are a great couple and that they still are in love with one another.
Chris Noth & Tara Wilson
Known as “Big” from Sex and the City, Chris Noth is quite the opposite from his character on the show; he is actually quite the romantic. After a decade of dating, the actor finally married his long-term girlfriend Tara Wilson and the two share a son together, Orion. As fans of true romance, we love the way that this half-black, half-Asian Canadian beauty looks next to her Caucasian man!
It also seems like his son loves making jokes. “My son makes me laugh every day,” said Noth. “He’s got a little of my goofball in him. He still loves poop jokes.”
Tyra Banks & Erik Asla
You go, Tyra! The stunning supermodel has been dating Norwegian hunk Erik Asla since 2012, but they have been so impressively secret about their relationship you probably don’t even recognize his name! Every couple should follow this model of secrecy because it brings forth higher chances of longevity to the relationship.
The Caucasian photographer and the African-American beauty met on the set of Norway’s Next Top Model and fell head-over-heels behind the camera. They now share a son together with the help of a surrogate! Outside of their child together, Asla also has three other daughters that live in Los Angeles.
Tina Turner & Erwin Bach
The music icon Tina Turner is married to 57-year-old German music executive Erwin Bach and the two only dated 27 years before he took her off the market! That must be a lasting love! Bach even produced Tina’s famous track “What’s Love Got To Do With It!”They now reside in Switzerland where Tina retains a citizenship and the two feel at home.
The two had been a couple for 27 years before finally getting married. That is a testament to love to be together for that long and then finally decide on tying the knot so kudos to the both of them!
Robert De Niro & Grace Hightower
As one of our very favorite, almost fairy tale-like interracial couples, Robert De Niro and Grace Hightower are an inspiration every day. The two have been partners since 1997 where De Niro fell for the hostess at the restaurant Mr. Chow, aka Grace. The stunning African American and second wife to the famous actor gave birth to two beautiful children.
We say fairy tale-like because you could not have guessed that the high-profile actor would have fallen for a hostess and add in the fact that she is another race. For two decades they have been inspiring interracial couples everywhere.
Ice-T & Coco
Most famous for starring in the reality series Ice Loves Coco, previous hip-hop artist Ice-T found love in the comfort of Coco on the set of Law & Order: SVU. After a single split in 2012, the two rekindled their lasting, interracial love and the two have a daughter together, Chanel.
Chanel even participated in her first fashion show at only 14 months of age. Yes, her mom was holding her as she walked alongside Ice for the Nike/Jordan Runaway but that will be something to reminisce about when she grows up. Coco’s shared photos of the event on Instagram and baby Chanel looked less than pleased.
Ellen Pompeo & Chris Ivery
As Meredith Grey, there was only one man for her and his name was Derek Shepherd. The issues with that are, Derek died from a car accident and that it is just a TV show. In real life, Grey has someone else she can call her own.
Grey’s Anatomy bombshell Ellen Pompeo met the love of her life in an aisle, in the grocery store! Her now-husband, producer Chris Ivery, proposed to the actress on her birthday and married her at City Hall in 2007. The inseparable couple gave birth to their baby daughter Stella Luna and live their love every day in Los Angeles.
David Bowie & Iman
Before the tragic passing of the eclectic rock star earlier this year, David Bowie and supermodel Iman’s love was one for the books. The stunning model met the talented performer at a dinner party just after she had announced her retirement from the modeling world in 1990.
Bowie was so taken with the Somalian beauty, he was quoted by Hello! Magazine saying “That she would be my wife, in my head, was a done deal,” he gushed. “I’d never gone after anything in my life with such passion in all my life. I just knew she was the one.” The inspirational pair were married for a beautiful 24 years.
Kendra Wilkinson & Hank Baskett
The story of Caucasian former playboy bunny Kendra Wilkinson and former Eagles wide receiver Hank Baskett has not been a quiet one. With cheating rumors and a close call with divorce in the mix, the two have made waves throughout their six-year marriage. And not to sound pessimistic, but with the backgrounds they have one could have guessed there would be some drama in the mix.
Baskett even gave Kendra permission to flirt and play with other guys after his cheating scandal blew up! Although they are not the “picture perfect” couple, they have managed to work around their issues and rekindle their love.
Sidney Poitier & Joanna Shimkus
Bahamian-American actor Sidney Poitier and Caucasian Canadian former actress Joanna Shimkus make a perfect couple. After 35 years of dedicated marriage, the interracial pair has raised two beautiful and talented daughters who eventually both followed after their parents as talented actresses.
In 2016, Poitier received the lifetime achievement award at the BAFTA Awards. “To my family, my life force, I am nothing without you,” Poitier told the BAFTA audience via video. And all of you, thank you for your warm embrace and this extraordinary moment and memory I shall cherish.”
Taye Diggs & Idina Menzel
The stunning actress and Broadway star Idina Menzel and the incredible Taye Diggs once had a love that was blind to color. After meeting on the set of RENT, the actors fell madly in love and gave birth to son Walker, who is now five years old. The two now are divorced sadly after a 10-year marriage, but they have managed to commit to the responsibility of raising Walker amicably.
And that is the only respectable way to handle that situation, right? Once they decided to have a child they also decided to put the child before themselves, so all the other problems should take a back seat.
Tamera Mowry & Adam Housley
With a gorgeous African American/white son,Sister, Sister star Tamera Mowry and Caucasian Fox Newscaster Adam Housley celebrate their interracial love. The two have been happily married since 2011 and gave birth to their adorable baby boy Aden. As a talk show host on The Real, Tamera enjoys her time on camera but primarily focuses on her marriage and motherhood.
That would explain why the twin hasn’t been in many shows after Sister, Sister. She had the talent to pursue acting and be in it for a while but family is more important to her, clearly and that is quite fine.
Kylie Jenner & Tyga
One of the most famous on our list is the young romance between Kardashian personality Kylie Jenner and African American rapper Tyga. After Tyga cheated on and left his baby mama Blac Chyna for the 18-year-old bombshell, she started dating and is now engaged to Rob Kardashian, Kylie’s older brother. Awkward much?
After a few-month split, the two rekindled their interracial spark and are still currently dating. There always seems to be something bubbling on the rumor mill between these two mainly regarding breaking up but their relationship is as solid as ever.
Ashlee Simpson & Evan Ross
Baby Simpson sister Ashlee found love in the arms of this black Hunger Games actor, and the two married in 2014. In the same year, the pair welcomed daughter Jagger Snow and have been happily in love ever since. Ashlee’s first marriage to musician Pete Wentz gave her first-born Bronx, who is now half-sister to baby Jagger; the whole family is too cute!
Ross made his acting debut in the film ATL alongside rapper T.I. back in 2006. Simpson must have seen the movie and got the hots for him through the big screen. However it happened, the two make a great couple.
Reggie Bush & Lilit Avagyan
Hunky Buffalo Bills running back Reggie Bush and Kim K look-a-like, Persian wife Lilit Avagyan married back in 2014. After a rough breakup with the Kardashian TV star, it was clear that Bush wanted someone that looked exactly like her, which is honestly a little weird but to each their own. The couple has a beautiful son named Uriah and a daughter, Breseis.
The relationship has had it’s ups and downs with a woman claiming that her recent child’s father is Bush so he had to take her to court. That situation died down and the couple has been peaceful for now.
Wesley Snipes & Nakyung “Nikki” Park
Most may know Wesley Snipes from his days as the gnarly vampire king known as Blade. The Blade trilogy was phenomenal but we also may know him from his issues with the government but more specifically taxes.
After dating for three years, the stunning Korean painter and African-American actor married in 2003. Following some tax evasion issues, the interracial pair worked together with their four children to overcome the stress and anxiety and are still happily married to this day! That is what marriage is all about, sticking together when the hardships of life get rough.
Matthew McConaughey & Camila Alves
Heartthrob Matthew McConaughey has been married to beautiful Brazilian- American model Camila Alves since 2012. The gorgeous pair has two children and has recently celebrated Camila’s US citizenship that was made official just last year.
McConaughey recalled the first time he saw Alves and told the story to Howard Stern. “I’m not even a club guy, but I was a club guy,” he said. “And I’m making margaritas at the end of the table, and this figure moves across the room. And I remember [saying] to myself, ‘What is that?’ I didn’t say, ‘Who is that,’ I said, ‘What is that?’”
Alfre Woodard & Roderick Spencer
Golden Globe Award winner Alfre Woodard wedded writer Roderick Spencer in 1983 and has fought for their interracial love for years with family and the press. The two adopted two children, Mavis and Duncan, who are both now successful actors and they currently reside in Los Angeles.
Woodard recently played a huge role in Marvel’s Luke Cage, a Netflix Original series. It seems like she is doing just fine with life even after having to deal with interracial relationship problems. And what better combo than an actress being with a writer? They are a power couple indeed.
Salma Hayek & Francois-Henri Pinault
Sizzling Mexican-American actress Salma Hayek found the man of her dreams in French businessman Francois-Henri Pinault in 2007. The couple was married in 2009 and have a beautiful daughter named Valentina together. Apparently, Pinault was named as the potential baby daddy for Linda Evangelista’s baby in 2006, but he denied all allegations.
Why would he even want to partake in infidelity when he has someone as gorgeous as her on his side? That is one thing we do not understand when it comes to celebrity relationships. We understand that fans throw themselves at you but messing up something with someone who knows you better than anyone else is foolish.
Cuba Gooding Jr. & Sara Kapfer
African-American actor Cuba Gooding Jr., son of The Main Ingredient lead singer Cuba Gooding Sr., married Caucasian high school sweetheart Sara Kapfer. After an awful divorce in 2014, the two have been seen more recently attempting to rekindle the flame on dates.
“Officially I’m still married, it’s just you know how some marriages go,” he explained to Steve Harvey. “Sometimes you take a break or two. All I’m saying is my life is what it is right now,” “I took her to see a movie the other day. We’ve got kid, man, we’ve got to keep this together.”
Eva Mendes & Ryan Gosling
If there were ever a more sought after actor in Hollywood than Ryan Gosling then we must not know who it is. He has been in his fair share of romantic relationships but we think this one takes the cake. That even goes for his near perfect relationship with Rachel McAdams.
As our favorite couple of all time, hunky Caucasian actor Gosling and Cuba goddess Eva Mendes are the perfect couple. The two started dating in 2011 and were married just this year. Giving birth to beautiful daughters, Esmeralda Amada and Amada, the interracial couple seems super happy and in love.
Paula Patton & Robin Thicke
Adorable high school sweethearts Paula Patton and Robin Thicke really made a beautiful couple. The German, Dutch, African-American stunner married the son of Alan Thicke in 2005 but called it quits in February 2014 after 20+ years of marriage. Infidelity was the cause of this one and we just can’t believe that. Thicke regretted it so much he even made an album dedicated to her titled “Paula”. As much courage as it had to take, Patton did not take Thicke back and that serves him right. As friends, they are raising son Julian together amicably, which is what they should be doing.
Halle Berry & Olivier Martinez
Stunning half African-American actress Halle Berry married Caucasian French actor Oliver Martinez in 2013. Raising son Maceo and daughter Nahla together, the couple decided to file for divorce in 2015 due to Martinez’s controlling nature. Since filing, the couple has not taken any action and has recently been warned that their divorce filing will be erased although they still live separately and vacation together. That reeks of cold feet and the two might be secretly working things out. Sometimes it is just hard to go and throw away something special just like that. Hopefully, they work it out.
Eliza Dushku & Rick Fox
Rick Fox is an NBA champion and had one pretty jump shot while he was in the league. He then went on and got one pretty girlfriend.
Albanian Bring It On bombshell Eliza Dushku met the African- American former LA Laker Fox in 2009. After 5 years of dating, the couple decided to part ways due to living on “separate coasts” in 2014 but still remain on good terms. Apparently, long distance just isn’t for everyone. At least they’re still friends! We also know that it is sometimes hard to keep things platonic between a former lover, but Fox is a champion so he knows how to perform under pressure.
Michael Ealy & Khatira Rafiqzada
After dating for four years in secret, African-American actor Michael Ealy announced to the world that he was a married man. Wedding stunning Middle Eastern Khatira Rafiqzada in 2012, they were able to keep their nuptials a secret for two months before the press got wind of their marriage. Raising son Elijah together, the couple happily lives in Los Angeles.
Now here is another great example of keeping things under wraps. They got to two months of keeping it a secret before the media found out. That could also imply that Ealy’s celebrity is not that big.
Michael Jordan & Yvette Prieto
Michael Jordan is the greatest to do it across all sports. He was undefeated in the finals and has six rings. The guy is a walking living legend. His wife, not half bad either. It just feels like he’s a winner on and off the court so you can only sit back and appreciate his greatness.
Jordan is married to the stunning 35-year-old Cuban- American model Yvette Prieto. After four years of dating, the African-American basketball superstar married the woman of his dreams this year in Palm Beach, Fl. Yvette is now stepmother to Jordan’s three grown children from his first marriage.
Khloe Kardashian & Lamar Odom
At first, this seemed like a great love story. One was an NBA champion and other was one of the more wholesome Kardashians. Many thought it would actually last because they seemed so perfect for each other.
Although things did not work out for the pair, Armenian Kardashian, Khloe, married African-American Laker Lamar Odom in 2009. The two were married for four years until their split in 2013 around the time that Odom was admitted to rehab after a drug overdose. Remaining friends, Odom stayed at Khloe’s house as he recovered from his suicide attempt and they are still good friends.
Blac Chyna & Robert Kardashian, Jr
Former model and African-American personality Blac Chyna and Armenian Rob Kardashian found love in one another when her ex-baby daddy Tyga left her for Kylie Jenner.
The two got engaged in a very fast manner and even followed it up with a child. But you know they say, you can’t rush love and it appears that them taking things too swiftly led to a messy breakup. The family tried to warn Rob in the beginning but he wasn’t trying to hear any of that. Well, it was beautiful while it lasted and they created a gorgeous baby from it.
Nicolas Cage & Alice Kim Cage
The handsome actor married the stunning Korean former waitress Alice Kim in 2005. Meeting the actress at the sushi bar where she was working at the time, Cage fell head over heels in love with Kim when she was only 20 years old.
After 11 years together, the couple recently decided to call it quits after Kim was seen flirting with another man at a bar in Vegas. Come to find out, she was doing more than just flirting. Kim would make frequent trips to Nevada and kiss the other man behind Cage’s back. The couple has one son together.
Thandie Newton & Ol Parker
If you remember one of Will Smith’s more memorable films, Pursuit of Happyness then chances are you remember Thandie Newton. The stunning actress has a role in the popular HBO series Westworld and she gives the viewers a bit more skin than they asked for. No one is complaining, however.
Zimbabwean actress Thandie Newton married Caucasian director Ol Parker in 1998. The two met on the set of a BBC film that Parker was directing and fell madly in love; they now have 3 children together. With that many kids, hopefully, the marriage stays sweet and amicable.
Vanessa Williams & Jim Skrip
Actress and goddess Vanessa Williams married third husband and Buffalo businessman Jim Skrip just last year. With two children from her previous marriages, Vanessa is on good terms with both of her ex-husbands, Rick Fox and Ramon Hervey II. These two love each other so deeply that they decided to get married a second time in the Catholic church just a year after their first ceremony!
After the wedding, Williams took to Instagram and wrote, “Yesterday we took one last walk down the aisle – this time in my little church,” Williams said. “Officially wedded Catholic. Amen!”
Janet Jackson & Wissam Al Mana
Janet Jackson married Qatar businessman Wissam Al Mana back in 2012 and the two have managed to escape too much attention from the press ever since. He referred to his wife as his “dream woman” and we couldn’t agree more! It’s good to know that he realizes what a lucky man he is to have Janet Jackson by his side.
Sadly, the two have just recently split up. After a five-year marriage, they separated shortly after the birth of their baby. “They separated shortly after the baby was born,” a source said. “The cultural differences between her and Wissam became even more obvious [after Eissa arrived]. They come from very different worlds.”
Zoe Saldana & Marco Perego
We love that someone as famous as the Dominican-Puerto Rican bombshell Zoe Saldana likes her privacy, which is why you may not know her hunky hubby, Italian artist Marco Perego. The two married back in 2013 in secret and gave birth to adorable twins Bowie and Cy. Recently, Perego has become a US citizen so the family spends most of their time in the States!
That move probably compromises some of their secrecy because paparazzi is everywhere in the states! As long as their love is strong then that should matter much because their family is the number one priority.
Tiger Woods & Elin Nordegren
The African-American professional golfer wed Swedish model Elin Nordegren in 2004 but was caught cheating with 30 other women during the course of their relationship. The two called it quits in 2010 and have three children together that they are now raising separately but in a friendly manner. Their divorce only became final just recently.
“I have moved on and I am in a good place,” Nordegren says. “My relationship with Tiger is centered around our children and we are doing really good – we really are – and I am so happy that is the case. He is a great father.”
Dwayne Johnson & Lauren Hashian
Samoan Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson met his stunning Caucasian wife Lauren Hashian on the set of the film The Game Plan. After nine years of dating, The Rock finally took himself off the market with the beautiful Lauren and the two just had their first baby together last year, Jasmine.
The two have a great dynamic going on it seems, too. “First of all, she teases me about everything. Everything,” he tells People. “Nothing is off limits in our house. And it’s the beauty of it. And I tease her with everything.” You know it’s real when you can joke around.
Larry Fishburne & Gina Torres
African-American Matrix actor Larry Fishburne married Cuban-American actress Gina Torres in 2002. They had their daughter Delilah together in 2007, Torres also is a stepmother to Fishburne’s children from his first marriage, Langston and Montana.
For two great actors, one has to wonder if they ever get to work together and how that goes. In some cases, many couples who work in the same field find it hard to work together. “We always have a good time,” said Torres. “We have a tremendous amount of respect for each other. We love what we do, we appreciate the art.”
Selena Gomez & The Weeknd
The Starboy and Ethiopian singer from Canada is definitely a star. Whenever he drops an album it is a certified chart topper and no one can deny that. You are for sure to hear his lead single on the radio for at least three months before you begin to hear his next single. Selena Gomez is a star in her own right, as well. We know that Gomez had the past with Justin Bieber but it looks like The Weeknd makes her happy.
“They’re not shy about showing affection in public, and that’s not how she usually is,” says the source. “She’s pretty private about relationships, but she really likes him and doesn’t feel the need to hide it.”
Kelly Ripa & Mark Consuelos
Caucasian actress Kelly Ripa met the suave Spanish actor on the set of All My Children and has loved him ever since. With 20 years of marriage under their belts, the gorgeous couple has three adorable children together and they all split their time between New York and Los Angeles.
Ripa candidly revealed that after the two hit the sack, Consuelos would be mean to her. “He’s immediately mean to me afterward and I don’t like that,” Ripa said as she sat next to Consuelos. “I think it’s bizarre. He becomes short with me, like irritated.” She later said she was just joking.
George & Amal Clooney
As front runners for our favorite interracial couple, Lebanese goddess Amal Clooney and George Clooney are seriously the perfect pair. After countless relationships, Clooney met Amal in 2013 a charity fundraiser and was immediately smitten.
Within months of dating, The Oceans 11 actor George popped the question and the couple was wed just months later the same year. He obviously did not want to wait and who could blame him? As of April 2017, the two are expecting twins, the first children for both of them and they plan to raise them in London. “It’s going to be an adventure … We’ve sort of embraced it all … with arms wide open,” he said.
Nicole Richie & Joel Madden
Daughter of Lionel Richie, Nicole married Good Charlotte singer Joel Madden 10 years ago and the two are still going strong. With beautiful children Sparrow and Harlow, the fashionista and musician seem to have it all figured out and we couldn’t be more pleased. Richie is of Mexican, African-American, and English decent.
“There are moments where you feel like life is perfect, and you want to stay in that moment forever, and that’s how we feel: really blessed and lucky,’ the 37-year-old told People. “I give my wife a lot of credit. She’s an incredible partner and really supportive,” he added.
Jessica Alba & Cash Warren
The Latin-English bombshell met the half African-American businessman on the set of Fantastic Four back in 2005 and although she was dating someone else at the time, she admits to being completely love struck by him immediately. The two have been married since 2008 and have two beautiful daughters together, Honor and Haven.
Alba recently opened up about parenthood. “I don’t try to pretend like I have all the answers and I certainly don’t think I’m perfect,” adds Alba. “So when my kids say something, instead of me being so reactive, I think about how I can be better.”
Gabrielle Reece & Laird Hamilton
The Afro-Trinidadian (her father’s side) professional volleyball player and model married Greek professional surfer husband Laird Hamilton back in 1997. The two have two daughters and Reece is stepmother to Laird’s daughter Izabela from his first marriage to Maria Souza.
Reece gave impactful tips on how to keep a marriage strong in an interview. “Respect his masculinity and give him space,” she said. “Men know what they need to do when you give them the space to do it and allow them to step into their power. Don’t try to be his mother. An alpha male does not need that authority figure in his partner.”
America Ferrera & Ryan Piers Williams
The stunning American-Honduran actress America Ferrera is married to Caucasian actor and director Ryan Piers Williams; the two met back when America was a student at USC. They were engaged in 2010 and married by 2011 and have spent the last 11 years loving one another. They are an inspiration to us all!
They celebrated their fifth year wedding anniversary in style out in Hawaii. “Celebrating 11 years of building a life with this generous, funny, dedicated, one-of-a-kind man,” she wrote on Instagram. “I’m grateful for you Ryan and the adventurous, interesting, friend-filled, love-filled life we’ve made together.”
Lisa Bonet & Jason Momoa
African-American Cosby Show goddess Lisa Bonet and Game of Thrones hunk Jason, who is of Hawaiian descent, tied the knot in 2007. After having Zoe with Lenny Kravitz, Lisa was eager to have more children so the couple had two within two years of their marriage. They have got to be the sexiest couple alive!
Here is a funny story about how they first met. “We met through mutual friends,” Jason once told TheYBF. “But when I first met her, she didn’t know I was a stalker, but I was. I was with one of my best friends and when I turned around, and they were going to introduce us, literally like, FIREWORKS. She said ‘Hi I’m Lisa’. And I said ‘Hi, I’m Jason’ and I just turn around to my buddy like… (freaking out).”
Enrique Iglesias & Anna Kournikova
One of the most gorgeous couples around, Spanish singer Enrique Iglesias and Russian professional tennis player Anna Kournikova have been together for forever! After meeting in 2001, the couple has been head-over-heels for one another ever since although they have still yet to tie the knot.
E! recently caught up with the singer and asked him about marriage but he was very cryptic with his response. “Who knows what the future holds…or the past…haha,” he told E! when asked if he plans to get marriedin the future. Well, we are just going to have to wait and see what happens.
Matt Damon & Luciana Barroso
The hunky Caucasian actor wed Argentinian wife Luciana Barroso over 10 years ago and they are still very much in love. After meeting at a bar, the two fell head-over-heels for one another and have not looked back since.
Together, they parent Barroso’s daughter Alexia from her first marriage to Arbello Barroso. It’s seriously adorable how much he loves his wife and cannot stay apart from her for more than two weeks! The Bourne actor feels he is lucky to have her and the feeling is reciprocated from her. Hopefully, they keep this great thing going.
Serena Williams & Alexis Ohanian
Wimbledon champ and tennis legend Serena Williams, who is African-American, announced in December 2016 that she was newly engaged. Her fiancé, Alexis Ohanian, is an Armenian-American who first arrived in the United States as a refugee.
Ohanian co-founded the popular website reddit.com, and Williams fittingly shared their engagement news there, posting “I came home / A little late / Someone had a bag packed for me / And a carriage awaited / Destination: Rome / To escort me to my very own “charming” / Back to where our stars first collide / And now it was full circle / At the same table we first met by chance / This time he made it not by chance / But by choice / Down on one knee / He said 4 words / And / isaidyes.”
Arlenis Sosa & Donnie McGrath
Victoria’s Secret model Arlenis Sosa married basketball player Donnie McGrath in her native Dominican Republic in 2015. It was a star-studded event with several of Sosa’s model friends in attendance, including Toni Garrn, Jourdan Dunn, Lais Ribeiro, Eniko Mihalik and Anais Mali. McGrath’s colleagues also traveled south for the big day. NBA stars Joakim Noah and Chandler Parsons and former NBA stars Marko Jaric and Ryan Gomes were also guests.
Sosa told Brides magazine that the pair had their first date in Paris. She was there for a job, and he was playing in Greece. He flew to France simply to take her to dinner. How romantic!
Grigor Dimitrov & Nicole Scherzinger
Singer Nicole Scherzinger and tennis star Grigor Dimitrov started dating two years ago. She told InTheStyleUK in December 2016 that she was thinking about starting a family someday but wasn’t in a hurry. She said, “A few years down the line, yeah, it’s something that I’m going to be thinking about.”
She added, ‘I feel like I haven’t scratched the surface of what I’m supposed to do and create, and that’s where my mind is at. So when I’ve got there, and it’s the right time, then maybe I’ll think about kids and a family.” There have been rumors they split up after Grigor was spotted ex-girlfriend Maria Sharapova.
Brad PItt & Thandie Newton
Brad Pitt and Thandie Newton met while filming Interview with a Vampire and dated for about a year from 1994 until 1995. Pitt played a vampire while Newton played Yvette, a servant on his character’s plantation. While Pitt later described making the film as “miserable,” obviously one good thing came out of it – his relationship with Newton. They reportedly had an amicable split and remained friends after breaking up.
Pitt also told Entertainment Weekly in 2011 that despite the bad taste the film left in his mouth, “the great thing that came out of that movie is that it birthed my love affair with New Orleans.”
Michelle Phan & Dominique Capraro
YouTuber and a makeup guru Michelle Phan is dating Swiss model Dominique Capraro. At first, the pair had a long-distance relationship because he lived in Paris. They took it slow and only met face-to-face after two years of getting to know one another. He ended up appearing in several of her videos, including one in which he did her make-up.
She revealed in January 2016: “I have never been so fascinated with anyone in my entire life. But I don’t want to be some power couple. I don’t care what people think. We aren’t in any rush to get married and have kids, and I don’t think women should ever feel that pressure.”
Jaden Smith & Odessa Adlon
In April 2017, Jaden Smith stepped out with his new girlfriend Odessa Adlon at Coachella. There’s not a whole lot of information about Odessa. Her Twitter account is set to private, and it does not appear that she interacts a lot on social media (at least not under her real name). She made her acting debut on the TV series Defiance in 2016. She also appeared on Nashville.
