13 Celebrities Who Fell in Love With Ordinary People That Have Regular Jobs
We often see famous people dating and marrying other celebrities either from their own space or a different one. It’s not just because they all attend the same events but also because they understand each other and the hardships that come with being in the industry. However, not everyone seems to think this way, since many of the most famous stars seem to stay away from having renowned partners.
1. Lady Gaga and Michael Polansky
The famous superstar was first spotted in public with Michael Polansky in February 2020, and it seems they are still together. Michael is a tech CEO and works for Facebook co-founder Sean Parker’s different business ventures. Based on his LinkedIn profile, he now runs the Institute for Cancer Immunotherapy, which does cancer research.
2. Cynthia Nixon and Christine Marinoni
Cynthia and Christine have been married since 2012, but got together back in 2004. Christine is an LGBTQ+ educational activist who worked for New York’s Department of Education in the past. She helped establish the Alliance for Quality Education to ensure that all kids receive a high-quality public education. Since Cynthia is an activist herself, she met Christine in their shared activism space.
In 2009, when same-sex marriage wasn’t yet legalized in New York City, the 2 of them got engaged at a rally. This was their way of showing their full support for the cause. Of course, when the Marriage Equality Act passed in 2012, they got married legally.
3. RuPaul and Georges LeBar
The lovely couple has been together since 1994 but only got officially married in 2017. While Ru has a very glamorous work life as the host of RuPaul’s Drag Race, his husband is the opposite. He is the manager of a 60,000-acre ranch in Wyoming and South Dakota.
On one of the very rare occasions that Ru talked about their relationship, he revealed how they met. They were both on the dance floor of a club in 1994 when Ru approached him after seeing him dancing, and the rest is history.
4. Ariana Grande and Dalton Gomez
We don’t know much about Ariana and Dalton’s relationship, but we do know that they started dating somewhere in 2020. While he seems to know a few famous people, his job is away from the public limelight.

The couple got engaged in December 2020 and finally got married in May 2021 with only a few guests in attendance.
5. Paul Rudd and Julie Yaeger
The couple first met sometime after 1995 and have been together ever since. They are both very private when it comes to their marriage, and they don’t share very much about themselves.

In 2017, she wrote the movie Fun Mom Dinner, in which Rudd was the executive producer.
6. Taylor Lautner and Taylor Dome
The 2 Taylors met when Lautner was on a hiatus from acting, and his sister introduced him to his future wife. Dome is a registered nurse and has publicly thanked Lautner for always supporting her during her journey. “Thank you for encouraging me when I felt like quitting.

7. Sam Worthington and Lara Worthington

She has partnered up with quite a few companies to promote them.
8. Riz Ahmed and Fatima Farheen Mirza

The actress herself called her to let her know that the novel would be published right when she was stepping out of the subway.
