30+ Hollywood Stars Share What Their Pregnancies and Deliveries Were Really Like

Hollywood is all about glitz, glamor, and high-end fashion. Meanwhile, pregnancy is about morning sickness, bloating, and stretchy pants. So… it’s a slightly different experience. Which begs the question, what happens when those two worlds collide? Well, these celebs have been open and honest about what pregnancy is really like — and it’s not what we were expecting!

Kourtney Kardashian

Kourtney Kardashian absolutely loved being pregnant! And in true Kardashian style, she allowed the birth to be filmed. In another on-brand move, Kourtney used her blissful pregnancy as a way to sell products.

Pinterest // @krystyna2605

She advertised on her Instagram how wonderful being pregnant was and all the things she used to help the process. The main thing promoted, which is free, was staying active during pregnancy as that helped her feel healthy throughout the entire nine months.

Katie Holmes

Katie Holmes had a rough go with her labor since she had to follow the rules of Scientology the entire time. Holmes had to be as silent as possible while giving birth (so that the baby could be born in a peaceful environment) and was forced to go home the next day.

Twitter // @summerforsloane

At least the pregnancy seemed to be a lot more pleasant. Katie has said that being pregnant is “a dream come true. I feel great, (being pregnant) is so beautiful.”

Mariah Carey

Having a baby with Nick Cannon may be a rite of passage for women everywhere these days, but Mariah Carey was the OG Cannon baby mama. At the time, Carey shared how difficult it was to enjoy being pregnant while famous because she really wanted to experience that stage of her life privately.

Twitter // @ifhewont

After hiding her baby bump for as long as she could, Mariah finally revealed, “At this point, there is no choice. I either talk or I hibernate.”

Chrissy Teigen

When you’re not the one who’s pregnant, it’s easy to feel out of touch with time. Sometimes, time flies — and other times it goes really slowly. When you’re pregnant, though, you know exactly how long you’ve had a bun in the oven.

Pinterest // @popsugar

While pregnant, Chrissy Teigen’s fans began to get impatient and commented that it seems like the model has been carrying forever. Teigen shared their sentiments, responding with, “How do you think I feel thank you.”

Kate Winslet

We’ve all heard the expression ‘fake it ‘til you make it,’ and as it turns out, that can work for feeling good while pregnant too! Kate Winslet had to utilize her acting skills a bit while she was with child, as she didn’t feel particularly blissful or glowing.

Reddit // u/[deleted]

In fact, Winslet says that she felt more like a “large red London bus” than anything. The actress has said that pretending to enjoy pregnancy helped her get through it.

Tia Mowry

Tia Mowry’s pregnancy was no walk in the park, as the actress had morning sickness every single day. Yikes! Despite being continuously nauseous, Mowry was ecstatic to be pregnant, especially because she’d struggled with fertility issues.

Facebook // Tia Mowry

In fact, it took Tia a while to even believe that she was going to experience pregnancy at all! She shared, “I was in denial, to be honest with you. I probably went through 20 pregnancy tests […] I wanted to be super positive before I got too excited.”

Jessica Simpson

Jessica Simpson was brutally mocked by the public for gaining a significant amount of weight during her pregnancy, but we’re willing to bet that at least half of her critics would’ve done the same.

Pinterest // @dailymail

Simpson was aware of and wasn’t happy about her new figure, but she couldn’t exercise — or even walk at all — due to the pain she was in. Pregnancy left the singer/actress with excessive swelling in her ankles, sciatica pain, bronchitis, and anxiety. We’re sure that the public ridicule certainly didn’t help.

Teyana Taylor

Some women choose to give birth at home, and some prefer hospitals. And then there’s Teyana Taylor, who didn’t get a choice because her baby wanted to come out early. The singer ended up giving birth in her bathroom, with her fiancé getting home just in time.

Instagram // @teyanataylor

Taylor has aptly shared that “Every pregnancy is different.” That’s most certainly true for her, as Teyana’s first pregnancy was a breeze but she was constantly ill and exhausted during the second one.

Hilary Duff

Hilary Duff’s pregnancy left her needing to take a break from having kids. The actress suffered extreme pain — the type that makes you double over — which was, understandably, terrifying.

Pinterest // @usweekly

Given how much she didn’t enjoy the experience, it makes sense that when she did get pregnant again, Duff spoiled herself. Hilary declared, “When I was pregnant with my last child, it was the first time I ever had Taco Bell.” Hey, if Taco Bell makes it bearable, you eat all the Taco Bell you want!

Kim Kardashian

Unfortunately, none of Kim Kardashian’s pregnancies were easy. The reality star was in pain throughout one pregnancy, and the other had so many complications that she needed five surgeries afterward. Due to the health issues Kardashian faced, she’s been advised to use a surrogate for any future children.

Reddit // u/lorimclorilori

Kim shared that during pregnancy, “I hated how I felt. I hated how I looked.” She added that the entire ordeal of expanding her family “was really, really crazy.” But, was it as crazy as Kanye?

Snooki

Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi was known for being extremely out there with her shenanigans on Jersey Shore. While she’s certainly classed it up since then, she’s still a truth-teller. Snooki revealed that pregnancy is “pretty disgusting” as there are constantly bodily fluids leaking out of you.

Instagram // @snooki

She even shared that she’d wet herself routinely while pregnant. Ah, Snooki, it’s nice to see you haven’t changed too much. As a side note, Polizzi has compared herself pregnant to herself after a night of partying too hard. Take from that what you will.

Kate Hudson

Like many celebrities, Kate Hudson wanted to keep her pregnancy hidden. And as many stars do, she found that feat to be impossible. The actress was constantly ill throughout pregnancy, suffering morning sickness, hair loss, and acne. Hudson has shared, “They say girls make you sicker and that, for me, has been the truth.”

Twitter // @PregnantBellies

While this was the case for Kate, it’s worth noting that there’s no scientific evidence that the gender of the baby affects the symptoms a woman experiences during pregnancy.

Amy Schumer

Amy Schumer’s pregnancy was anything but easy, as the comedian was diagnosed with a condition called hyperemesis gravidarum, which occurs in roughly 2% of pregnancies. The rare circumstance causes the mother to experience nausea to the point of debilitation.

Twitter // @celebs_of_world

Schumer is extremely vocal about what she went through, explaining, “With a pregnancy, we’re supposed to make it look easy and I just really reject that, so I wanted people to hopefully feel better and educate other women about what might happen if they get pregnant.”

Porsha Williams

After suffering losing a baby partway through pregnancy, Porsha Williams was understandably worried throughout her entire pregnancy with her daughter Pilar Jhena McKinley. Rather than being able to enjoy the various stages of pregnancy, Williams found herself constantly thinking about the baby she had lost six years prior.

Instagram // @porsha4real

Thankfully, Pilar was born healthy and without complications. We’d say Porsha can rest easy now, but any mother knows that being worry-free simply isn’t on the agenda for parenthood.

Jessica Alba

We’ve all heard of a pregnant woman’s water breaking, something which is usually a dramatic scene in movies. Well, not every mom-to-be experiences that. Moreover, in extremely rare cases, the baby is born still inside the amniotic sac!

Reddit // u/Priceyboy13

That’s how Jessica Alba gave birth to her daughter Haven, who wasn’t exactly ready to leave her home — and ended up taking it with her. Alba explained that the unusual birth inspired her daughter’s name saying, “She came into the world in her ‘safe haven.'”

Beyoncé

Beyoncé and Jay-Z sparked controversy when they allegedly took over an entire hospital floor to welcome Blue Ivy to the world, preventing other expecting parents from accessing certain rooms. In fact, one father said he was unable to see his newborn twins due to the power couple’s takeover!

Pinterest // @alluremagazine

However, the hospital claims, “We have made every effort to ensure minimal disruption to other families experiencing the births of their own children.” Maybe we just have different definitions of the word ‘disruption?’

Carrie Underwood

In stark contrast to certain other celebs, Carrie Underwood doesn’t see herself as any different than other pregnant women. During pregnancy, the American Idol alum revealed, “I feel good. I just have a strange job.”

Twitter // @McKennaTwigg

She continued, “I feel like I’m a working mom, pregnant, I got my stuff to do, you know, it’s just an interesting job I have, but I’m just like every other pregnant lady trying to go to work.” Maybe other singers should take notes?

Gwyneth Paltrow

They say motherhood changes you, and that seems to hold true for Gwyneth Paltrow. Paltrow uncharacteristically criticized promoting unrealistic lifestyle expectations by calling out the social media trend of women posting photos of their perfectly flat stomachs shortly after they’ve given birth.

Twitter // @3z3ki3el

Gwyneth said, “More power to the lady with the washboard [abs] but that is totally the exception and then now we’re being fed all of these other images of what we’re supposed to look like all the time — babies, no babies, whatever.”

Khloé Kardashian

Sadly, Khloé Kardashian has faced fertility issues, making the healthy birth of her daughter True extra special. However, the reality star has been warned against trying to carry more children, which led her to the decision of using a surrogate for her second child.

Pinterest // @hollywoodlife

As if that weren’t enough to go through, Kardashian’s then-partner/the father of the baby, Tristan Thompson, was unfaithful — and Khloé found out right after the surrogate got pregnant. Clearly, men like Thompson will never understand what women go through.

Kristen Bell

Something that we often don’t anticipate when we think about pregnancy is a change of voice, but it can actually happen due to all the hormones. Kristen Bell discovered this while she was pregnant — and recording lines for the animated film Frozen.

Pinterest // @instyle

The discrepancy was so big that Bell had to re-record some parts after she gave birth so that her character Anna’s voice wouldn’t randomly change to a lower register from scene to scene.

Zoe Saldana

Most people try to find the right time to get pregnant and, while that’s certainly a good idea, the moment will never be absolutely perfect. Zoe Saldana experienced this during her pregnancy as producers were unhappy with the actress’s news and wanted to drop her from projects.

Pinterest //  @dailymail

Unfortunately, this seems to be one thing that celebrities and regular folk have in common. Saldana warned her fans, “Let me tell you something, it will never be the right time for anybody in your life that you get pregnant.”

Melissa Joan Hart

Melissa Joan Hart has three children, but she’d have more kids if it weren’t for those pesky nine months that come beforehand. The actress has said, “I would have had seven babies if I didn’t have to be pregnant.”

Twitter // @MrJoshua2023

Hard has shared that she particularly hates needing to change her lifestyle, particularly her diet, throughout pregnancy. She’s also cited feeling constantly exhausted as one of the reasons she doesn’t intend to get pregnant again.

Tamar Braxton

Unfortunately, Tamar Braxton had some difficulties getting pregnant and a tough go of pregnancy itself. The singer had a condition in which her skin was extremely itchy throughout the pregnancy, and she says that nothing really helped it.

Pinterest // @JustMeMrzG

However, Braxton still wants more children, but probably via a different method. She’s referred to any future mini-Tamar’s by saying, “I don’t know how they’re [going to] get here but I would really love to have some more.”

Busy Philipps

You may think you’re tough, but are you deliver-your-own-baby-while-in-labor tough? Well, Busy Philipps is! The actress opted for natural childbirth in a hospital, so there were doctors available. However, when the opportunity presented itself, Philipps chose to be hands-on (literally).

Pinterest // @buzzfeed

Busy aptly said, “During the days and weeks afterward, I felt like I could do anything in the world; there was nothing in this world that you could present before me that I could not conquer.”

Meghan Markle

While some women feel exceptionally beautiful during pregnancy, others just feel… blah. Unfortunately, Meghan Markle falls into the latter category, as the actress has said, “I just waddled around, I was just tired. I was so tired.” We completely understand her, as it’s hard to feel attractive when you’re body is changing rapidly — even if those changes are normal and expected.

Twitter // @according2_taz

The part we’re maybe less sympathetic about is when Markle complained that being pregnant while famous has impacted her well-being. Because she and Harry just want privacy! Cue the Netflix special…

Hilaria Baldwin

Hilaria and Alec Baldwin have always wanted a large family but sadly struggled to get pregnant. Once they managed, though, they made up for lost time and have had a whopping seven children! That being said, experiencing pregnancy in your late 30s is no joke.

Reddit // u/[deleted]

Baldwin revealed, “As I begin the final trimester of this pregnancy, I feel my body slowing down.” She added that exercising while pregnant has helped keep her healthy. Well, you certainly don’t go through all those pregnancies without learning a thing or two!

Ellen Pompeo

While most women worry about not getting time off work after having a baby, Ellen Pompeo couldn’t wait to get back to work. The actress chose to take only four weeks of maternity leave, but her reasons make us wonder if she felt compelled to resume filming before she was ready.

Pinterest // @usweekly

Pompeo said, “I felt like I needed to work while I had this opportunity. The writers and producers were really gracious and wrote my scenes so I could pre-shoot them.”

Zooey Deschanel

One of the unpleasant aspects of pregnancy is all the dietary restrictions — something to which Zooey Deschanel is no stranger. The actress has expressed, “You can’t have sushi. You can’t have cheese that tastes good.”

Twitter // @pretendp0pstar

Unfortunately, the list goes on, “You can have a little bit [of coffee]. I would have like four cups a day, and now I can have half a cup, which is a total joke. A total joke! It keeps expanding. It feels like every week I find out something else I’m not supposed to eat.”

Nikki Reed

Nikki Reed’s approach to pregnancy is an extremely healthy one. While it’s completely understandable to focus on the ‘what’ when it comes to changes in one’s body, Reed chooses to focus on the ‘why.’

Pinterest // @dailymail

The actress has said, “Being pregnant has given me this new and powerful appreciation for my body. Why do I suddenly have this layer of fat? Oh, it’s because my body needs to create […] milk. Why am I hungry and thirsty? Because my body is creating amniotic fluid.” Yes! A pregnant body is powerful and beautiful!

Katherine Heigl

Katherine Heigl is known for her work in rom-coms, and it seems that her real life turned into a bit of a comedy as the actress found herself in some awkward situations while pregnant. Heigl confessed, “The thing that really got me was the indigestion. […] I never stopped burping.”

Twitter // @VegasBlogApp

She went on, “And I felt terrible about it, but there was just nothing I could do — I would be in the middle of saying something and I’d just start burping.” Hopefully, the people around her were understanding about it.

Amanda Seyfried

A very common symptom of pregnancy is a heightened sense of smell. This is due to the increase of estrogen and it’s experienced by two-thirds of pregnant women in their first trimester. Amanda Seyfried is certainly no exception, as she joked, “I can smell electricity. I swear to God I can smell the TV.”

Pinterest // @zimbio

The actress pointed out that people’s body odor was particularly difficult for her to withstand. So, if you know you’re going to be around a pregnant woman, take extra care to put on sufficient deodorant!

Molly Sims

Everyone knows to never mess with a woman during her time of the month or while she’s pregnant. Molly Sims admits to being the poster child for the latter, as she acted “crazy” during pregnancy. Hey, no judgment here, Molly — who wouldn’t be a little emotional while creating a whole human being?!

Twitter // @_Starkiddo

The model explained, “Here’s the number one thing you don’t say to a hormonal girl: ‘I just don’t understand why you’re being hormonal. I don’t understand why you’re being emotional.'” Take notes, people!

Brooklyn Decker

Being a model, Brooklyn Decker is used to needing to look flawless. While she’s always beautiful, Decker did suffer from acne during pregnancy, an experience which she sarcastically referred to as “effin awesome.”

Twitter // @idpakeapa

On a more serious note, Brooklyn pointed out that people don’t talk enough about the effects of childbirth, and women aren’t sufficiently prepared. She said, “You don’t actually talk about stitches and bleeding and blistering and the pain.” Decker even called the amount of blood she lost “really shocking!”

Evangeline Lilly

Evangeline Lilly seemed to have an easy enough pregnancy as, at the time, the actress exclaimed that she felt “great!” However, Lilly found it a bit more challenging to be pregnant while fulfilling her Hollywood obligations.

Twitter // @Ebedell20

The actress complained, “I have to say, high heels and doing a red carpet is starting to ache.” So, don’t wear them! You’re pregnant! Wear sneakers or slippers — even Crocs would be acceptable for a pregnant woman, but only for a pregnant woman.

Olivia Wilde

Olivia Wilde found that becoming a mother provided a new perspective. The actress explained that pregnancy “gives you more empathy because you look at everyone and you think, ‘You were a baby!'” It seems that a lot of Twitter users need to experience parenthood, as Wilde faced backlash while riding the subway pregnant.

Facebook // Celana Hamil Bunda

Olivia rightfully tweeted disappointment that no one offered her their seat, and the responses basically consisted of, “No one asked you to get pregnant.” Well, no one asked you to be a jerk either, but here we are.

Mila Kunis

A lot of women get annoyed when men say “we’re pregnant” as a way of announcing they’re going to be fathers. As much as men deserve credit for fatherhood and supporting their partners through pregnancy, the kudos for pregnancy and labor belong solely to the woman.

Twitter // @BritishVogue

Mila Kunis seems to agree with this sentiment, as she used her own pregnancy to school the public about this issue. The actress clarified, “We [women] can’t have anything, because we’ve got your little love-goblin growing inside of us. You’re not pregnant, we are.”

Cardi B

It’s obvious that Cardi B’s baby took after her mom when it comes to a love for dancing. While pregnant with Kulture, Cardi expressed that there was a lot of activity going on in her belly.

Twitter // @etnow

The singer said, “This been going on for hours. I been trying to take a nap and I can’t. Like I don’t know what’s goin’ on. It’s like she in the club or somethin’ in there.” Well, it seems the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree!

Kelly Clarkson

Despite a lot of women claiming they felt gorgeous when pregnant, Kelly Clarkson doesn’t believe the hype. The singer admitted, “You’re not attractive when you’re pregnant. Everybody tells you [that] you glow and your hair is pretty and your nails are pretty.”

Pinterest // @popsugar

She continued, “My nails are short, my hair still falls out — it’s not all lush and beautiful — and I have no glow. Unless it’s, like, something left over from a bad throw-up. It’s horrible.”

Ciara

Ciara’s pregnancy was plagued by soreness and difficulty moving. The singer explained, “My body was so achy, I thought I was going to need a cane at the end of my pregnancy, to be honest. I was penguin walking throughout the house at the end.”

Twitter // @extratv

She explained that keeping her mental health on point helped with the physical downsides. In fact, Ciara credited being creative and working on music as something that carried her through the nine months.

Emily Ratajowski

Like so many other women out there, Emily Ratajowski doesn’t want to hear about how “we’re pregnant.” The model clarified, “I am ultimately alone with my body in this experience.”

Reddit //u/mal0980

She went on, “There is no one to feel it with me — the sharp muscular aches in my lower abdomen that come out of nowhere while I’m watching a movie or the painful heaviness of my breasts that now greets me first thing every morning. My husband has no physical symptoms in ‘our’ pregnancy.” Well said!

Eva Longoria

Everyone knows that a woman’s belly gets bigger while pregnant, but it truly isn’t just the stomach that grows — despite what bad movie costume prosthetics will have you think. Eva Longoria is well aware of this, as the actress says her whole body got enlarged, specifically her thighs and chest.

Pinterest // @dailymail

For those who may need some guidance on how to deal with expanding, Longoria said that doing yoga throughout her pregnancy helped with both weight management and back pain.

Katy Perry

Like many of her fellow celebs, Katy Perry experienced swelling in her hands and feet — not just in her stomach — while pregnant. Additionally, the singer found that her cravings were all too real.

Twitter // @_SexyPregnant

In fact, Perry’s need for hot sauce was so strong that it simply couldn’t wait until she got home! Katy confessed, “I like, literally, never cared for spice, and now, I have to carry Tabasco sauce in my purse.” Well, if nothing else, it shows initiative!

Maya Rudolph

For those who want more than one child, it’s worth figuring out how you’d like to space out your pregnancies, depending on how easy or difficult the experience is for you. Maya Rudolph timed things in such a way that she felt like it was just one long, never-ending pregnancy!

Twitter // @TheSono71468392

The actress said, “I think I’m 25 months pregnant. [I’m due in] two more months… in dog years, so that’s 25. Honestly, because it’s my third, I feel like I’ve been pregnant for like six years, seriously.”

Jaime Pressly

Jaime Pressly didn’t enjoy being pregnant as she “hated being fat.” Um, Jaime, being fat and being pregnant are not the same thing! We get it, though — she didn’t like taking up more space than she’s used to. That wasn’t the only thing Pressly didn’t like, though.

Twitter // @thegraystray

The actress revealed, “I had this hideous ‘pregnancy mask’ skin discoloration, which completely covered my face […] This may sound arrogant, but I’m used to looking hot, I just wanted to cry all the time.” Ooof, so much for the glow.

Christina Perri

While all the issues of pregnancy — like weight gain, feeling tired, morning sickness, etc — are very real and should be validated, we shouldn’t lose sight of the fact that the important thing is the health of the mom and baby.

Facebook // Christina Perri

Christina Perri knows this better than anyone, as the singer suffered tragic struggles with bringing a pregnancy to term. Perri gave a message of strength to all women by saying, “I am here and whole and walked through it all and I promise you can too.”

25 Celebrities Who Love Their Partners Regardless of What Others Might Think

They Didn’t Choose Love – Love Chose Them

We can’t choose who we love, it’s just a feeling that someone else gives us. More often than not, it doesn’t make any sense. This also applies to the celebrity world. While you might wonder why certain famous people date certain people, it would never cross their minds to question their love. Some of these couples have been together through thick and thin, while others have only just begun their relationships together. At any rate, these couples appreciate each other and don’t care what others think. The following celebrities love their partners, regardless of what members of the public or critics might have to say about them.

Hunter McGrady & Brian Keys

Body-positivity model Hunter McGrady has been making history for the last few years now, especially for her cover features in magazines such as Sports Illustrated’s Swimsuit Issue and The Knot. However, her life has gotten even better after she tied the knot with her “one,” Brian Keys.

Instagram // @huntermcgrady

The couple recited their vows at a ceremony in Moorpark, California. McGrady has also become a proud stepmother to Keys’ daughter. “She’s just the most beautiful little girl,” she said. “She’s so special, so gentle and so loving.”

Ashley Graham & Justin Ervin

Ashley Graham has become one of the biggest proponents of body positivity over the last few years. However, she admits that her interracial relationship with videographer Justin Ervin has not always been easy.

Instagram // @ashleygraham

They met back in 2009 and according to Graham, her family was a little surprised when she introduced Ervin to them. Since then though, the couple’s marriage has gotten stronger and stronger with time and Graham and Ervin are currently expecting their first child.

Billy Gardell & Patty Knight

For a long time, fans of the sitcom Mike and Molly assumed that the actors who played the titular couple, Billy Gareel and Melissa McCarthy, were actually an item in real life.

Shutterstock // DFree

However, for nearly two decades, Billy has actually been happily married to Patty Knight and through thick and thin, the couple have been completely devoted to each other. The TV star values his relationship with Patty above all other things and together, they had a son in 2003.

Chrissy Metz & Hal Rosenfeld

Chrissy Metz is best known for her role as Kate Pearson in the hit NBC series This Is Us. Despite separating from her ex-husband Martyn Eaden back in 2015, it seems like the talented actress has been dating since then and might have even found love elsewhere.

Instagram // @chrissymetz

It is unclear if they are still together as of December 2019, but Hal Rosenfeld seems to be the guy that Chrissy has been spending most of her time with recently.

Gabourey Sidibe

Although it’s unconfirmed if Gabourey Sidibe is with anyone at this moment in her career, the Precious star has been seen with a number of potential suitors over the last few years.

Instagram // @gabby3shabby

There was one young man who she was spotted with courtside of an NBA game between the Brooklyn Nets and the Milwaukee Bucks. Paparazzi also saw her walking around in public with a man wearing a Nike SB tank top. Other than this, it seems like the actress keeps her personal life extremely private.

Melissa McCarthy & Ben Falcone

Melissa McCarthy has evolved from her supporting role in Gilmore Girls to becoming one of the biggest stars in all of Hollywood! Along the way though, she managed to settle down with the man of her dreams – longtime boyfriend and fellow actor Ben Falcone.

Instagram // @melissamccarthy

Ever since marrying in 2005, the couple has been going strong and have had two daughters together – who they concede might follow in their acting footsteps. Moreover, McCarthy and Falcone ended up starring together, briefly, in the hit comedy Bridesmaids.

Oprah Winfrey & Stedman Graham

There are some celebrity couples out there who are so in love and yet, they feel no pressure from society to actually get married. One classic example of this is Oprah Winfrey and her partner Stedman Graham. The couple has been together since 1986 and even got engaged.

Instagram // @nbcnews

They were scheduled to be married in November 1992. However, the ceremony never happened. “I don’t want to be married because I could not have the life that I created for myself,” Oprah said.

Tess Holliday & Nick Holliday

There is no denying that Tess Holliday has been one of the leading figures in body positivity. The model first met Australian photographer/artist Nick in 2012 and after talking online for a few months, the pair finally met in person.

Instagram // @nickhollidayco

After a few years of long-distance dating, Nick finally packed his bags and moved to the U.S. to be with Tess. Their engagement and wedding happened in quick succession of one another and since then, the couple have had two children.

Eric Stonestreet & Lindsay Schweitzer

While he is best known for his fictional relationship with Mitchell in the sitcom Modern Family, Eric Stonestreet’s love life actually looks very different in reality. The TV star met a pediatric nurse at a charity event a couple of years ago and since then, they have been inseparable.

Instagram // @ericstonestreet

Stonestreet opened up about his relationship to Ellen DeGeneres, saying the following: “She calms me — she calms my nerves. I’m a very high-strung person.” According to friends, they are very happy together.

Jessica Simpson & Eric Johnson

While Jessica Simpson was previously in a high-profile celebrity marriage with fellow actor Nich Lachey, her life has drastically changed since then. The singer/actress started dating former NFL tight end Eric Johnson back in 2010 and it didn’t take long before they announced their engagement.

Instagram // @jessicasimpson

Since then, the couple have had three children and in recent times, Simpson has undergone a strict fitness program with her personal trainer Harley Pasternak. Despite all of the changes they have been through together, Jessica and Eric are still going strong.

Adele & Skepta

Despite being one of the most successful singers in the world, Adele has had some misfortune in her love life in recent times. It is believed that the “Rolling in the Deep” singer has been romantically linked to Skepta.

Instagram // @justjared

Ever since her divorce with Simon Konecki, Adele has been in close contact with the British rapper. “Adele and Skepta have been there for each other a lot after both their relationships split up,” a source claimed. “They have a close bond and there’s definitely a special connection.”

Jorge Garcia & Rebecca Birdsall

Fans were devastated when they learned that Jorge Garcia’s character had been killed off in the show Hawaii Five-O. However, they can excuse the former Lost star for the swift departure, especially since he seems to be all loved up.

Instagram // @beckybird812

Garcia recently tied the knot with Rebecca Birdsall and they are proud to show off their love on social media. Birdsall also worked on the same show and it is believed that this how the couple got together in the first place.

Keala Settle

It is believed that Keala Settle has previously been engaged and also had a serious boyfriend at one point. However, the Broadway star seems to be happily single right now and is busy working, whether it is on stage or in front of a camera.

Twitter // @CaseyHowlett

She has been linked to a relatively unknown suitor by the name of Kadot Son, but she’s definitely keeping her personal cards close to her chest. The performer has made a name for herself on stage, winning numerous awards and recently working alongside Hugh Jackman in the movie The Greatest Showman.

Mindy Kaling & B.J. Novak

There is no denying that Mindy Kaling and B.J. Novak go way back. The dynamic duo played characters on The Office that had an on-and-off relationship and then they had a similar kind of relationship in real-life too.

Instagram // @vanityfair

Despite everything they have been through, Kaling and Novak are still extremely close, so much so that the latter is the godfather of the former’s child. “[B.J.] comes over at least once or twice a week to just [to] hang out with my daughter,” Kaling said.

Kevin James & Stephanie De La Cruz

There is no doubt that Kevin James is one of the most outrageous actors in the world of comedy. However, his wife Stephanie De La Cruz certainly brings out the best in him.

Shutterstock // s_bukley

Apparently, James met Stephanie on a blind date in 2001 and since then, the two have been completely inseparable. Two years later, the couple moved in together and a year after that, they tied the knot in a Catholic ceremony. They’ve had four kids together.

Demi Lovato & Austin Wilson

Without a doubt, Demi Lovato has had her fair share of problems over the last couple of years. However, it seems like the “Solo” singer is not so solo anymore.

Instagram // @dustingoals

Lovato has recently been spotted hanging out with model Austin Wilson and it seems like the two have made things official on social media. Wilson commented on one of her Instagram photos with just two words: “My Love.” According to PEOPLE magazine, the two are “enjoying spending time together.”

James Corden & Julia Carey

There is no denying that James Corden’s life has taken some drastic turns ever since he crossed over into the U.S. with his popular chat show. However, one thing has stayed the same, his love life. Corden owes a lot of thanks to his good friend, fellow actor Dominic Cooper.

Shutterstock // Ovidiu Hrubaru

This is because he introduced Corden to his wife Julia Carey many years ago. The couple eventually tied the knot in 2012 and since then, they have had three children.

Daryl Sabara and Meghan Trainor

Described by Rolling Stone as 2014’s “Most Unlikely Pop Star,” Meghan Trainor has come a long way since those sorts of accolades. The “All About That Bass” singer has also become a spokesperson for body positivity, while also working as a consultant for retailer FullBeauty Brands.

Shutterstock // Tinseltown

Since 2016, Trainor has been in a relationship with Spy Kids star Daryl Sabara. They ended up tying the knot on December 22, 2018, which also happened to be the singer’s 25th birthday.

Jay-Z & Beyonce

One of the biggest power couples in the celebrity world is, without a shadow of a doubt, Beyonce and Jay-Z. The couple has virtually been inseparable since the turn of the century, despite only getting married in 2008.

Instagram // @beyonce

While they have had three children and have gone on tour together on numerous occasions, their relationship has seen some cracks due to Jay’s admitted infidelity. Nevertheless, the couple have managed to use their music to confront their issues and despite everything, they are still going strong.

Hugh Jackman & Deborah Lee Furness

Despite being one of the most recognizable faces in all of Hollywood, Hugh Jackman has managed to stay with the same woman through thick and thin – Deborah Lee Furness. The couple met each other on the set of Australian TV show Correlli and just a year later, in 1996, they tied the knot.

“You love each other — and respect each other,” Jackman said. “You truly want to be together.” After Furness had two miscarriages, the couple still became parents through adoption.

Alicia & Scott Mccarvell

Social media has given rise to a new kind of celebrity — the influencer. Some of these influencers, like Alicia Mccarvell and her loving husband, Scott, have used their newfound fame to advocate for body positivity. Alicia has nearly six million followers with whom she shares her self-love journey.

Mccarvell explained how her relationship has changed through her journey, saying that “honestly, the way he has always wanted to love me has never changed, but the way I’ve allowed him to love me has changed drastically.” The two happily create TikToks together, celebrating their love.

Kelly Clarkson & Brandon Blackstock

While there is no denying that Kelly Clarkson and husband Brandon Blackstock both love music, their love for each other is even stronger. The couple started seeing each other back in 2012 and just a year later, they tied the knot in Walland, Tennesse.

Not only are they partners in life, but they are also business partners, with Blackstock being Clarkson’s manager. While the couple had two kids together, Clarkson is also the stepmother of Blackstock’s two kids from his previous marriage.

Amy Schumer & Chris Fischer

It seems like Amy Schumer and Chris Fischer’s first meeting and their eventual marriage ended up happening in the blink of an eye. The comedian-turned-actress met the farmer/chef at his vacation home after being invited by his younger sister, Molly, who happens to be Schumer’s assistant.

In no time at all, the pair started dating, tied the knot in 2018 and have since had their first child together. Schumer did admit though that it took a few dates to fall in love with Fischer.

One of Rebel Wilson’s most recent romances came in 2017 when it was revealed that she was dating stuntman Aden Stay. However, that fling eventually fizzled out and since then, the comedic actress has revealed that she generally struggles in the world of dating.

“Normally people that approach you are the really confident, cocky ones,” she said. “Regular dudes don’t normally come up.” Wilson’s last serious relationship was with Mickey Gooch Jr. but that also came to an end in 2015.

The number of Hollywood couples who have stood the test of time gets smaller and smaller by the day. However, Pierce Brosnan and his wife Keely are still going strong until this very day.
