What with Funke Akindele’s surprise wedding, we’ve spent most of today thinking of celebrity couples we like. And so we decided to put it all in a list! Here are a few of our favorite celebrity couples:
BEY AND JAY
Popularly known as THE ultimate power couple, Beyoncé and Jay-Z obviously top our list of favorite celebrity couples. Prior to meeting Jay-Z, Queen B had only been in a relationship once and suffered terrible heart break when it ended. She and Jay-Z were first friends as far back as 2000 and spoke for about a year and a half before going on their first date. They strive to keep their relationship out of public eye as much as possible and got married quietly in 2008. Their marriage is blessed with a daughter Blue Ivy and amidst the ups and down (like whatever inspired Lemonade), they seem to be going strong.
You’ve probably come across the word Brangelina right? Well, if you haven’t then that is the name of Hollywood most favorite (and in the beginning, controversial) celebrity couple. Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie met on the set of the popular movie Mr. and Mrs. Smith in 2004 and have since moved on to become real life couples. Brad was still married at the time of their meeting to fellow movie star Jennifer Aniston; he later got divorced and became an item with Jolie. Together they have adopted three children from different parts of the world and also have three of their own.
While some many people have said that the Kimye relationship is a copy model of Beyoncé and Jay-Z relationship but abeg, these two have continued to prove that nothing is stopping them! The duo dated a couple of other celebrities before finally finding love with each other. They were first as a couple pictured while leaving a restaurant together in April 2012 and today they are married and have two children. They are considered the most controversial celebrity couples alive as they constantly give the media something to talk about. But we like them cos despite what anyone thinks of them as individuals, they are ALWAYS there for one another.
TUFACE & ANNIE
The next celebrity couple on our list have seen it all and conquered it! They have managed to prove to us convincingly that love does conquer it all in the end. Tuface and Annie Idibia first met in 1999 and started dating officially in 2002. Even though their courting years was seemingly filled with turmoil and several separations they were together able to pull through it. Today, their marriage is blessed with seven children and they continue to excel in the limelight.
