10 Stars Who Dreamed of Being With Their Favorite Celebrity, and Fate Agreed
It’s common to feel attracted to a celebrity, and sometimes even dream of meeting them in person. As unlikely as it may seem, some celebrities have also felt this way about their colleagues, and they even had the good fortune of becoming romantically involved with them.
Bright Side found some love stories among celebrities and decided to make a list of the lucky few.
1. Victoria and David Beckham
Victoria and David Beckham met in 1997 at a soccer match when he was playing for Manchester United F.C. “Posh Spice” revealed that her now-husband, David, was the first celebrity she ever thought of in a romantic way.
The couple got engaged a year later and, in 1999, they married. They have now been married for over 20 years and have raised a beautiful family with their 4 children.
2. Brad Paisley and Kimberly Williams-Paisley
The first time Brad Paisley saw his current wife, Kimberly Williams, was in the movie, Father of the Bride (1991), to which he went with his then-girlfriend. When the second part of the film was released in 1995, the singer went to see the sequel alone and, upon seeing the actress again, he thought she could be a hard girl to find, being beautiful, smart, and funny at the same time.
The couple started dating in 2001 and ended up getting married in 2003. They currently have 2 children together.
3. Hailey and Justin Bieber
Hailey Bieber had feelings for her now-husband even before she met him and thought he was cute. The 2 met on a TV show in 2009 and their families kept in touch because they attended the same church. But it was only a few years later that they began to develop a real friendship that eventually turned into love. However, they were separated for a while, and in June 2018 they met again to seal the deal.
4. Vanessa and Nick Lachey
Vanessa and Nick Lachey met when they were in a stable relationship: he was married to Jessica Simpson and Venessa also had a partner. The love affair was not love at first sight, as they met in a work environment where she was the host of a TV show that Nick frequently went on to promote his reality show and his music career. Sometime later, Vanessa was part of a video clip of Nick, and that’s when things began to change — to the point that the now-wife of the singer confessed that she felt so nervous about promoting this video on the show, she couldn’t even show up for work that day.
5. Max Ehrich and Demi Lovato
Max Ehrich was attracted to Demi Lovato before they even started dating. He actually wasn’t afraid to speak about his feelings on social media back then — just check this 2011 tweet, for instance.
The young singer was single at the beginning of 2020 when they both started sending flirty messages to each other on social media. Little by little, they fell in love, and after a few months, they announced their engagement. However, this did not last long, and 2 months later they ended up splitting up.
6. John Krasinski and Emily Blunt
John Krasinski had seen The Devil Wears Prada, a film starring Emily Blunt, about 75 times when they started dating. She even once almost caught him watching the film, although he later confessed to her that it was one of those movies he watched every time he stumbled upon it on TV. They started dating in 2008 and got engaged the following year, celebrating their wedding in 2010. They currently have 2 daughters.
7. Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow
Chris Martin met his current ex-wife, Gwyneth Paltrow, backstage at one of his concerts. The meeting took place in a very strange way, with the press speculating about a possible relationship between the 2 when they still didn’t really know each other. After this, they started dating and were married from 2003 to 2014, making their divorce official in 2016. As a result of this marriage, they had 2 children.
8. Anne Hathaway and Adam Shulman
During an interview in 2014, Anne Hathaway said that from the first day she met Adam Shulman, she knew he was the love of her life and that she was going to marry him. And so it was: the couple married on a farm south of San Francisco in 2012 and already have 2 children.
9. Jessica Alba and Cash Warren
Jessica Alba met Cash Warren while filming Fantastic Four in 2004 and has been attracted to him ever since. 4 years later, the couple married in Los Angeles and have since given birth to 3 children.
10. Sandra Bullock and Jesse James
Sandra Bullock met Jesse James in December 2003 when she took her godson, a fan of Jesse’s show, to see some of his work and became fascinated with the entrepreneur and television host. Nearly 2 years later, the 2 were married in a private ceremony in California. However, after 5 years of marriage, they ended up divorcing.
