It's always so heartwarming to see your favorite celebrities come together — and it's even more gratifying to know that they're still happily married! Join Wonderwall.com as we celebrate some of our favorite married Hollywood couples who've stood the test of time! Starting off our list is none other than this It couple from the aughts: Sarah Michelle Gellar and Freddie Prinze Jr. Sparks flew between these co-stars a few years after they made the 1997 cult-classic teen horror flick "I Know What You Did Last Summer. On Jan. 31, 2020, the "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" actress recalled the night that changed it all in an Instagram post celebrating their anniversary. "20 years ago this week, my friend @realfreddieprinze and I were supposed to have dinner with a mutual friend from out of town," she wrote. "That friend missed her flight, but we decided to still meet and catch up. Now 20 years together, 17 plus married and two kids, we still go to that restaurant for dinner. So thank you @sloaney77 for not showing up for dinner." Keep reading to see more of your favorite married Hollywood couples…
It wouldn't be a list celebrating married Hollywood couples unless Chrissy Teigen and John Legend were on it! The pair, who met in 2006 while filming John's music video for "Stereo" (in which Chrissy played the love interest), have been married since 2013, but the road to marital bliss wasn't necessarily the easiest — in fact, the "All of Me" singer once tried to break up with the model. "I was on tour with him and he'd gotten sick," Chrissy told Cosmopolitan in 2016. "He was feeling really bummed and stressed out. He was like, 'I can't be in a relationship right now.' That lasted for one day. Literally, a day. I knew it came from a place other than us not working. It was the stress of him having to maybe cancel a show, and he had never been in a real relationship — or so he says now. I always joke, 'Remember when you tried to break up with me?' He's like, 'Yes, sorry. Big mistake.'" Now the couple share two children: daughter Luna and son Miles.
Among the most buzzed-about married couples in music? Definitely Beyonce and JAY-Z. From the infamous 2014 Met Gala elevator incident to the release of Bey's 2016 visual album, "Lemonade" — which fueled rumors that Jay had cheated, which he later confirmed — their marriage has endured its share of (highly publicized) complications. Still, they've managed to move past that together. In a 2018 interview with CNN's Van Jones, Jay shared why he wanted to save their marriage. "It's my soulmate, the person I love," he said. "You can be in love with someone — you can love someone and if you haven't experienced love, and you don't understand it and you don't have the tools to move forward, then you are going to have complications, period." Since mending their marriage, the couple appear to be stronger than ever — they embarked on their "On the Run Tour II" in 2018 and that same year surprised fans with the release of a joint album, "Everything Is Love." Together, Beyonce and Jay have three children — daughter Blue Ivy and twins Rumi and Sir.

Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi married in 2008 following the California Supreme Court's decision to overturn the ban on same-sex marriage. The couple had been dating for four years prior to legally tying the knot. Since getting together, Ellen and Portia have established themselves as a true Hollywood It couple. In a 2016 interview with People magazine, the award-winning talk show host had nothing but love for her wife. "I can't imagine not being married," Ellen said. "I have my best friend, the person I want to spend time with more than anybody else in the world."
Another married Hollywood couple we can't help but be fascinated with is Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West, who married in 2014. Their relationship, while imperfect, only seems to have gotten stronger over the years. Following an argument that aired on an episode of "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" about Kim's 2019 Met Gala dress — born-again Christian Kanye thought it was too sexy while Kim felt it was on-brand — Kim visited "The Real" where she shared her belief that marriage is all about compromising. "I think, at the end of the day, that's what marriage is," she said on the talk show. "He's going to do things that I don't agree with and I support him and vice versa." The Wests share four children together: North, Saint, Chicago and Psalm.
This is one couple that is beyond adorable. From the looks of love they give each other to the way they praise each other in the media, Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban set the bar high for others. In a 2019 interview with People magazine, Nicole said she realized she wanted to marry Keith on the morning of her 38th birthday. "I believed by that point he was the love of my life," she shared. "Maybe that's because I am deeply romantic, or I'm an actress, or I have strong faith as well, but I believed, 'Oh, OK, here he is.'" The couple exchanged vows in 2006 and now have two children together — Sunday Rose and Faith Margaret. (Nicole also has two kids from her first marriage to Tom Cruise — Connor and Bella).
Denzel Washington and wife Pauletta have been married since 1983. The couple first laid eyes on each other in 1977 when they filmed the TV movie "Wilma," and the rest is history. In an interview with The Guardian in 2010, Denzel shared the "secret" to his marriage — namely that there isn't one. "There is no secret to the perfect marriage," he said. "I have been married 27 years to Pauletta. Everybody has their ups and downs, we've had ours. It's hard work, you know. But we made a commitment. A spiritual foundation helps everything — marriage, work, peace of mind." Denzel and Pauletta have four children together — Olivia, Katia, Malcolm and John David, who stars in the 2020 Christopher Nolan film "TENET."
After a couple years of on-off dating, Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin got together again — this time for good — in the summer of 2018. Barely a month later, he proposed in the Bahamas, and two months after that, the pop star and the model tied the knot. The couple later posed for the cover of Vogue's March 2019 issue and shared some details about their relationship. "When I saw her last June, I just forgot how much I loved her and how much I missed her and how much of a positive impact she made in my life," Justin said. "I was like, 'Holy cow, this is what I've been looking for.'" Hailey shared the same sentiment about her hubbie. "We're coming from a really genuine place," she said. "But we're two young people who are learning as we go. I'm not going to sit here and lie and say it's all a magical fantasy. It's always going to be hard. It's a choice. You don't feel it every single day. You don't wake up every day saying, 'I'm absolutely so in love and you are perfect.' That's not what being married is. But there's something beautiful about it anyway — about wanting to fight for something, commit to building with someone." In 2020, the once-troubled "Changes" singer — who in 2019 remarried Hailey in a religious ceremony — wrote in an emotional Instagram post, "Now I am navigating the best season of my life: MARRIAGE!"
After Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds tied the knot in 2012, they quickly established themselves as one of Hollywood's most beloved married couples. The pair welcomed their third child in 2019 and are still going strong. The "Deadpool" star was featured in a Humans of New York Instagram post in 2017 in which he said of his wife, "She always responds with empathy. She meets anger with empathy. She meets hate with empathy. She'll take the time to imagine what happened to a person when they were 5 or 6 years old. And she's made me a more empathetic person. I had a very fractured relationship with my father. Before he died, she made me remember things I didn't want to remember. She made me remember the good times."
While our list is filled with many lovable married Hollywood couples, it's hard not to especially love this one. Two daughters and nearly 10 years of marriage later, John Krasinski and Emily Blunt are still absolutely smitten with each other. While they've certainly established successful careers on their own, the power couple joined forces for 2018's horror film "A Quiet Place," which garnered critical acclaim. The success of that joint effort also resulted in a sequel, "A Quiet Place II," which hits theaters in March 2020. When he visited "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" in 2018, John shared how meeting Emily changed his perspective on wanting to stay single. "It's one of those things where, as soon as you meet someone, you kind of know," he told the talk show host. "I wasn't really looking for a relationship — then I met her and I was so nervous. I was like, 'Oh God, I think I'm going to fall in love with her.' And as I shook her hand I went, 'I like you.'"
Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade haven't had the easiest relationship, but their love continues to prevail. The two married in 2014 and have been living a modern-day fairytale ever since. "When I met Dwyane, his résumé looked like crap: athlete, going through a divorce, nine years younger than me," she told Glamour in 2014. "None of that screamed, 'Let's have a lasting relationship.' Then, after I had a heart-crushing breakup with yet another immature jerk, I thought, it can't be any worse if I date a fetus. Let's just see what happens. Turned out he'd been on his own since he was 15. He had wisdom that comes with facing an insane amount of adversity. He's sweet, funny, honest about his shortcomings. When I put my preconceived notions to the side, I found someone cool."
While Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard might epitomize "couples goals," they've experienced rough patches in the past. Kristen and Dax have been married since 2013 but have been together since 2007. "We definitely had to work really hard at being a couple because we're both incredibly, painfully stubborn, and we're pretty much opposites," Dax told People magazine in 2019. "All these movies from the '80s taught us that it's love at first sight, and it is supposed to be easy and all you have to do is find that person," Kristen said in the same interview. "It took me a while to realize, 'Oh, that was such a lie,' because things that you work really, really, really hard for always yield the best results." The couple share two kids together — Delta and Lincoln.
Enter one of Hollywood's most iconic married couples… Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson have been legally wed since 1988 — that's more than 30 years! For these two, time seems to have only strengthened their bond. In an interview with Oprah Winfrey in 2001, Tom opened up about his relationship with Rita. "Honestly, I married into a classic old-world family structure in which people like to spend time with each other and construct their lives so they can," he said. "That hadn't been part of my existence up till then. And you know what? In the 13 years Rita and I have been married, I've discovered there's no substitute for that. There's such an advantage to being involved in the day-to-day details of each other's lives. It's a marvelous fabric to exist in."
This one's a real-life fairytale. Though Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis met in 1998 when they played on-screen couple Kelso and Jackie on "That '70s Show," they didn't actually spark romantically until 2012. Following a reunion at the Golden Globes that year, they started seeing one another and got engaged in 2014. "We started dating with the idea we're both never going to get married," Mila told radio show host Howard Stern in 2016. "[Ashton] just got out of a marriage [to Demi Moore]. I got out of a long relationship [with Macaulay Culkin]. I was single and having the best time ever. I was totally dating, having a great time, and I was like, 'I'm never getting married.' He's like, 'Great, neither am I!' And we're like shaking hands on it and we're like, 'Life is great!' A year later, we're like, 'Tomorrow, let's get married.'" The couple have welcomed two children together — Wyatt Isabelle and Dimitri Portwood.
Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka got together in 2004 and in 2010 welcomed twins Harper Grace and Gideon Scott. In September 2019, the former "How I Met Your Mother" star took to Instagram to proclaim his love for the chef, with whom he exchanged vows in 2014. "Five years ago today, in the countryside of central Italy, I married this miraculous man," he wrote. "David Michael Burtka continues to inspire my soul, inform my spirit, and ignite my heart. Best decision ever. Happy Anniversary, @dbelicious. I love living life with you." What more is there to say other than we love their love?!
After auditioning for a role in the critically acclaimed hit series "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air" (which ultimately went to actress Nia Long), Jada PInkett Smith befriended Will Smith and the two grew close until things eventually turned romantic relationship. Will and Jada married in 1997 and have long been among Hollywood's most notable married couples ever since. On Tidal's "Rap Radar" podcast in 2018, Will shared how he and Jada don't prescribe to traditional labels. "We don't even say we're married anymore," he said. "We refer to ourselves as life partners." They have two children together — Jaden Smith and Willow Smith. Will also has son Trey from a previous marriage.
Hello, Mr. and Mrs. Jonas! These two got together in a way so fitting for the modern world — Joe Jonas slid into Sophie Turner's DMs! "We had a lot of mutual friends, and they'd been trying to introduce us for a long time," Sophie told Harper's Bazaar U.K. in 2019, the same year they married. "We were following each other on Instagram and he direct-messaged me one fine day, out of the blue." In the same interview, the "Game of Thrones" alum gushed about her love. "He's lovely. He's just the funniest. … He's the most fun, energetic, positive person I've ever seen. I'm pessimistic, so we balance each other out."
Ciara and Russell Wilson began dating in 2015 and married in 2016. On an episode of Jada Pinkett Smith's "Red Table Talk" Facebook Watch show in 2019, the singer spoke of the sadness she felt about becoming a single mother (she had son Future Wilburn with rapper ex-fiancé Future) and how then falling for NFL quarterback Russell was unlike anything she'd ever experienced. "It was different," she told Jada. "I had never had that feeling in my life. It was just, like, calm. We were connecting in every way. His conversation, it was just different. The way that he looked at life was different. Also, the energy with my son, it just felt right. And of course, consistency. He's consistent. That consistency is so crucial." Together, Ciara and Russell share a daughter, Sienna Princess. They're expecting another child in 2020.
Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem keep their relationship pretty low key, but theirs is another on-screen-turned-off-screen romance. The couple met while filming 1992's "Jamón Jamón," reunited for 2008's "Vicky Cristina Barcelona" and wed in 2010. In an interview with Tatler in 2019, Penelope talked about how their decision to keep their relationship private has proven to be a good one. "It would feel very strange to do it a different way," said the mother of two. "I just couldn't do it."
A relationship spanning more than two decades? That's a rarity in Hollywood! Writer-director-producer Judd Apatow and actress Leslie Mann have a love that has certainly stood the test of time — and that's a fact. The couple married in 1997 and had two daughters — Maude (who stars on the hit HBO series "Euphoria") and Iris. According to Leslie, when she first went out with Judd, she didn't realize it was actually a date. "I kept trying to cancel and he was like, 'No, I really want you to come to this basketball game,' and so I was like, 'Ah, fine,'" she shared on "Live with Kelly and Michael" in 2016. Well, we're glad she ended up going!
