8 Celebrity Couples Who Gave Their Love a Second Chance and Proved Going Through Rough Patches Only Makes You Stronger
Breakups and divorces aren’t always the last chapter of someone’s love story. Sometimes they just happen to remind 2 people what they truly feel for each other, even if it takes 2 decades to come to that realization.
Bright Side believes that there are times when the most cherished things are born by giving them a second chance, and these celebrities are living proof of that.
1. Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck
Jennifer and Ben first began dating in July 2002 and got engaged by the end of that year. But they called off the engagement and were eventually separated by January 2004. Nearly 2 decades later, Ben and Jennifer spent several days in Montana together. Who knows, maybe “Bennifer” will be a thing again.
2. Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel
Justin and Jessica’s love story began in 2007 when they first started dating. In March 2011, the couple broke up, but they remained friends. While they were separated, in one interview Justin revealed how much Jessica means to him: “She is the single-handedly most significant person in my life. In my 30 years, she is the most special person.”
Several months after their breakup, the duo got back together and got married in 2012. Since then, Justin and Jessica have been happily married and have 2 children together.
3. Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin
Justin and Hailey were friends long before they started dating. They were together as a couple from December 2015 to January 2016 and ended their relationship on bad terms. Eventually, they found each other again in 2018, made their peace, and are now happily married.
4. Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik
Zayn and Gigi have been in an off-and-on relationship since 2015. They parted ways several times, but they never lost respect for each other. Despite everything, the couple stayed together and welcomed their first bundle of joy in 2020.
5. Rose Leslie and Kit Harrington
Rose and Kit are now happily married and proud parents of a baby boy, but their relationship wasn’t always rainbows and butterflies. They first started dating back in 2012, and after a few months, the couple broke up and were apart for 2 years. In 2014, they gave their love a second chance and have been together ever since.
6. Pink and Carey Hart
Pink and Carey’s story is long — with 2 decades and 2 reconciliations that happened along the way. They met and got together in 2001 and broke up 2 years later. Eventually, they got back together and Pink proposed to Hart in 2005.
They were married for 2 years and got divorced, but their love story didn’t end there. Back then, Pink revealed that they still loved each other and that maybe one day their relationship might involve beach babies and sunshine, but not at that moment. And she was probably right because a year later the pair got back together. They are now happily married and have 2 children together.
7. Courteney Cox and Johnny Mcdaid
The pair were set up by their mutual friend, Ed Sheeran, in 2013. They started dating right away and got engaged in 2014. After a year, Courtney and Johnny broke up and stayed separated for a year. They rekindled their love and have been in a happy relationship ever since. In an interview, Courtney revealed that after the breakup their relationship became even stronger.
8. Hilary Duff and Matthew Koma
Duff and Koma made their first debut in 2017, but after a few months of dating, they split up. After several months apart, they got back together and got married in 2019 and, so far, they have 2 children together. The couple is very much happy together and in an Instagram post, Duff wrote for Koma: “My best friend, lover, and papa bear that can not be rivaled... it’s always been you.”
