There are many popular couples, but we had to narrow the list down to 10 favorites.

Barack Obama and Michelle Obama Barack and Michelle Obama will go down as one of the most famous couples in history. Years before they became President and First Lady of the United States, they met when they were both working at a law firm in Chicago. They were married on October 3, 1992, and later welcomed daughters Malia and Sasha. Michelle was a fierce supporter of her husband throughout his presidency, which spanned from 2009 to 2017. Now they are living their best lives, which we read about in their respective books!

  • Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds The actors met on the Green Lantern film set in 2010 where they played on-screen lovers—and by 2011, their scripted romance transferred to real life. Today, they’re one of the most beloved celebrity couples in Hollywood, thanks to their endearing sense of humor and the love they publicly share for each other. After getting married in a private wedding in 2012, they’re now the proud parents to daughters James, Inez, Betty, and a fourth whose name has yet to be publicly shared.

  • Meghan Markle and Prince Harry The world was captivated by Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s 2018 royal wedding, and for good reason. The American actress began dating the British prince in 2016, and their bi-continental romance elicited a flurry of excitement, buzz and curiosity. Their highly-anticipated nuptials were watched by an estimated 2 billion people around the world, and the Duchess’s custom Givenchy gown instantly became one of the most iconic wedding dresses of all time.

  • Beyonce and Jay-Z The musical powerhouses have been together for over 20 years, and their top-secret New York City wedding in 2008 was one that completely reshaped the industry. They’re still married today and share three children together: Blue Ivy, and twins Rumi and Sir.

  • John Legend and Chrissy Teigen Fate brought Chrissy Teigen and John Legend together. Teigen was cast as Legend’s love interest in the 2006 music video for his song “Stereo.” The on-screen romance transferred to real life, and they began dating the following year. After four years together, Legend proposed in December 2011. The famous couple got married in a dreamy Italian ceremony on September 14, 2013, at a villa on Lake Como. They have three children together, and after facing a tragic pregnancy complication in 2020, they later spoke about how their strong relationship foundation helped them move forward.

  • Emily Blunt and John Krasinski We know him as Jim from The Office, and her as Emily in The Devil Wears Prada. Separately, John Krasinski and Emily Blunt are two of the most well-known actors in Hollywood—and together, they make up one of the most iconic couples. They crossed paths for the first time in 2008 when they were both at the same restaurant and a mutual friend introduced them. They got engaged the following year and were married on July 10, 2010, at George Clooney’s villa in Lake Como, Italy. They’ve since welcomed two daughters together and had the opportunity to play on-screen spouses in the 2017 horror flick A Quiet Place.

  • George Clooney and Amal Clooney It doesn’t get more glamorous than George and Amal Clooney. This iconic couple had a meet-cute for the ages at a dinner party Clooney hosted at his Lake Como villa in 2013. The Oscar-winning actor sparked up a fast friendship with the successful human rights lawyer, and their relationship turned romantic later that year. By 2014, Clooney popped the question.

  • Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith Will Smith and his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith have been married for over 25 years, having gotten married in 1997. Through these many years in marriage, the two have been very vocal to the general public about the ins and outs of what goes on inside their relationship.

  •  David Beckham and Victoria Beckham This famous couple is as posh as it gets. After meeting at a charity soccer event, David Beckham began dating Victoria Adams in 1997. According to his teammates, Beckham had a longtime crush on the Spice Girl but was incredibly shy when they met. They got engaged in 1998 and immediately became known as “Posh and Becks” by fans. Their iconic wedding is one we still look back on today. They swapped vows in an Irish castle, and the newlyweds changed into matching purple outfits for their reception (where they sliced their wedding cake with a sword).
