Happy, confident, secure, and unapologetically in love – there are some celebrity couples that we just can’t get enough of. Sometimes the state of our love life can be at a standstill, and when things seem a bit lackluster, there’s nothing wrong with being a bit jealous of our fave celeb pairings. These seemingly perfect partnerships leave little to be desired and are basically the exact kind of long-lasting relationships we want when the time is right. These powerful and prominent couples restore our faith in true love and have what it takes to make us all green with envy... in a good way, of course. We all want to find love, there's no doubt about it, but in the meantime, we can love our favorite celeb match-ups and hope that our own relationships can live up to all the hype. These stars set the bar really, really high. Here are 15 celebrity couples that show us the meaning of #relationshipgoals. We can't help but totally envy them.
15 Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard
When it comes to super adorable celebrity couples, Kristen and Dax definitely come to mind. Bell is best known for her starring role on Veronica Mars. Of course, she’s had huge career success since then, playing the female lead in House of Lies and lending her voice to the role of Princess Anna for the immensely popular Frozen. In a bit of an unlikely pairing, Bell hit it off with fellow actor Dax Shepard in 2007, and the two have been nearly inseparable ever since. Kristen was known as being a quintessential “good girl” while Dax was popular for his wild antics and outlandish behavior. The pair proved that opposites certainly do attract, and the couple wed in 2013 and they share two daughters. The duo is currently featured in a series of charming commercials for Samsung that depict them in everyday situations that many other husbands and wives can relate to. One of the reasons this couple is so endearing is how totally down to earth they seem. Kristen and Dax are the couple that we all want to be friends with... and we can’t help but envy them and their awesome relationship.
14 Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen
You might know Tom Brady. He's the legendary quarterback for the New England Patriots. His wife just so happens to be famous supermodel Gisele Bundchen. Maybe you've heard of her, too. This unstoppable powerhouse couple has more fame and fortune than most of us can dream of. Brady is an all-American football star and Gisele has walked prominent catwalks all over the globe... and just in case that wasn't awesome enough, she's graced the cover of practically every single high fashion magazine. The couple appears to be pretty down to earth even though they have all this fame and success, and they live a pretty simple life (all things considered, of course). The pair met in 2006 on a blind date -- they were set up by a mutual friend. They tied the knot three years later and have two kids together. Both of them are totally guilty of gushing about their relationship to the media, showing that these two are more than your average A-list couple. They have a real bond and a genuine love that money can never buy. And we totally want their relationship.
13 John Kranskini and Emily Blunt
John Krasinski's first major role was playing Jim Halpert on the hit sitcom The Office. His career has taken off since then and he's landed tons of lead roles in big movies. In 2008, the actor became smitten with English actress Emily Blunt, who has starred in such films as The Devil Wears Prada and The Huntsman: Winter's War. The perfectly paired lovers got married in 2010 in Italy and have since welcomed two daughters. What is it about these two that leaves us all hoping we’re someday lucky enough to find a similar kind of relationship? Well, aside from appearing to be totally likable, it’s clear to see that they are over the moon for one another. John has publicly stated that he felt an instant connection when he first met his future wife. In an interview, John said, “I met her and I was so nervous. I was like, ‘Oh God, I think I’m going to fall in love with her.'" What about Emily? She's also talked a lot about how much she loves her husband. She's said that John has changed her life for the better and that she feels invincible when they’re together. John and Emily, we’re completely jealous!
12 Chrissy Teigen and John Legend
She’s an outgoing, outspoken model and television personality, and he’s an award-winning (and amazingly talented) musician. Together, they make one seriously enviable couple! Chrissy and John first met in 2007 on the set of one of his music videos. The two really hit it off and dated for four years before getting engaged in 2011. They finally said “I Do” in 2013 and have recently welcomed their first child. Legend’s biggest hit to date is his romantic ballad, All of Me, and it was of course written about his beautiful wife. Anyone who’s ever listened to the single knows that it’s probably one of the sweetest love songs of our time, as Legend tells the world how much he wholeheartedly and unconditionally loves his lady. Mushy stuff aside, this popular duo really doesn't care about what other people think, and they have no problem getting all lovey-dovey in public and on social media. Chrissy and John were meant to be, and we strive to snag a romance like theirs.
11 Tim McGraw and Faith Hill
Tim McGraw is a chart-topping country star who has been producing hit after hit since the early 90s. With such a long career under his belt, it would be hard to find a partner who can handle that high level of fame, right? Well, he deftly met his match in Faith Hill, fellow country star and actress. The pair got married way back in 1996 and they have been going strong ever since. Over the past twenty years, Tim and Faith have stood by each other's sides through the best and the worst times, such as the birth of their three daughters, and the low points of Tim’s past alcohol and drug addictions. Whatever life brings their way, Tim and Faith carry on together the way a loving husband and wife should. These two show us that they are committed to each other and that true love really does exist. Especially by Hollywood’s standards, two decades of marriage is equivalent to nearly a lifetime! This country power couple makes us hopeful that our soulmate really is out there somewhere.
10 Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively
He’s a super famous (and super handsome) actor, and she’s an equally famous (and super gorgeous) actress. This amazingly good-looking couple gives us all a serious case of hardcore envy because, well, they’re kind of perfect. Ryan and Blake first met while filming Green Lantern in 2010. Prior to sealing the deal, Ryan had been involved with other high-profile people like Alanis Morissette and Scarlett Johansson. Ryan openly discussed the first time he and Blake felt sparks fly… and it was during an awkward double date with other people. The two really hit it off, leaving their respective dates wondering what had just happened. From then on, the relationship progressed and they got married in 2012. Ryan and Blake have a daughter together and are currently expecting their second child. Seriously, these two are the picture of perfection, and we just adore them!
9 Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher
Mila and Ashton met as teenagers in 1998 when they co-starred on That 70’s Show. Though they played boyfriend and girlfriend on screen, the two never actually dated while working together... probably because Mila was in a long-term relationship with Macaulay Culkin at the time. After the show ran its course the cast remained good friends and Mila and Ashton kept in close contact over the years. Ashton went on to marry actress Demi Moore, but the two couldn’t make it work and divorced in 2012. Not long after their split, he reconnected with his (also newly single) former costar - and the rest is history. Mila and Ashton got married in 2015 and the couple shares a daughter and currently has another bun in the oven. The epic thing about this couple is that they built a strong foundation of friendship way before ever getting romantically involved. Fans of That 70’s Show had long hoped that they would someday get together, and their dreams eventually became reality. What makes us even more envious is that Ashton was actually Mila’s first kiss…ever! The two locked lips for the first time during a scene for the show which served as Mila’s first kiss... both on-screen and in real life. We’re sure glad these two finally came to their senses and got together.
8 Thomas Rhett and Lauren Akins
If we’re talking about couples who we’re envious of, Thomas Rhett and his wife Lauren Akins are quite possibly one of the cutest couples on the planet. Of course, Thomas is known in the world of country music for his back-to-back hits and top-selling albums. Thomas and Lauren ‘s history goes all the way back to the first grade where the two Nashville natives were friends for years until something clicked and they decided that they both wanted something more. Rhett stated that both of them came dangerously close to marrying someone else before his future father-in-law told him that he needed to tell Lauren his real feelings before it was too late. After finally getting together, the pair got married in 2012. Rhett’s wife has been in his life long before he hit it big. Since coming on the scene in 2013, he has managed to become a hugely successful artist, and his most recent (and biggest) hit, Die a Happy Man, was inspired by none other than his one true love. These two are as real as they come, and their relationship is totally one worth envying.
7 Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan-Tatum
Everyone knows Channing Tatum for his role in Magic Mike, but long before he was stripping his way into our hearts, he was winning the heart of his future wife Jenna Dewan-Tatum. Channing and Jenna met in 2006 while both starring together in the movie, Step Up. At the time, Channing wasn’t looking for a serious relationship and tried his best to stay away from Jenna. In the end, love won, and they became an item. They got engaged in 2008, got hitched the following year, and had a daughter in 2013. This couple is shamelessly in love and they make sure everyone knows it. They always have kind words to say about each other in the press, and Jenna openly admits that she loves Channing’s magic dance moves. When asked about how they make their marriage work, Channing told the press, “You have to want it. [Our] thing is checking in with each other all the time, like ‘On a scale from 1 to 10, how much do you love me right now?'” We can’t help it, this couple makes us ooze with envy.
6 Adam Levine and Behati Prinsloo
We know what you’re thinking: hot musician couples up with even hotter Victoria’s Secret model… no surprise there. Contrary to most rock star/model couples, their connection is way more than just physical, and Adam and Behati are super real. Adam had a habit of dating beautiful women, ending a relationship with a Russian Sports Illustrated model before meeting his future bride-to-be in mid-2012. Adam and Behati dated for almost a year before calling it quits in 2013... only to reconcile and get engaged in the following months. The super attractive couple got married in 2014 and is expecting their first child later this year. They make us green with envy for many reasons – one being that they seem hopelessly devoted to one another. They often reference their relationship on social media, with Adam referring to his wife as the “love of his life” on numerous occasions. It’s clear to see that true love has changed the lead singer of Maroon 5 for the better, having said on their wedding day that it “all feels very natural” and that he’s serendipitously “sitting in the chair I'm supposed to be sitting in right now." These two were definitely made for each other... and we hope that one day a dreamy pop-rock star will sweep us off our feet the way Adam did with Behati. Hey, a girl can dream.
5 Anna Faris and Chris Pratt
Take one look at Anna Faris and Chris Pratt,and you’ll see a couple that’s truly in love. Anna is a hilarious actress best known for her work in comedic films such as House Bunny and the Scary Movie film series, and she also stars in the new sitcom, Mom. Chris is also a fellow actor and funny man, who most recently starred in Jurassic World and Guardians of the Galaxy. The future couple met in 2007 while playing love interests on the set of the film, Take Me Home Tonight. Things moved fast for the pair, and over the next couple of years they became engaged, married and had a son together. It quite possibly puts some truth to the term “love at first sight.". Anna and Chris are totally worth being jealous of because they each can’t stop raving about what makes the other so wonderful. The pair has tons of quotable moments that make us all want to come out and say “aww” in unison. Anna has publicly stated that her husband is “humble, and he's a great leader, and he's an incredible father and a great husband”. She also said that after years of dating the wrong guys, she finally found someone who’s she can accept unconditional love from. Chris even went as far as to say that their relationship “has made me believe in divine intervention and destiny”. Cue the “awws” in 3... 2... 1 …
4 Pierce Brosnan and Keely Shaye Smith
We all know him as James Bond, but his wife knows him as The One. Pierce Brosnan is an actor, who famously played the role of 007 in a string of Bond films. While on a beach in Mexico in 1994, he met his now wife, the journalist and former model Keely Shaye Smith. The couple got married in 2001 and have two sons. Even after many years of marriage, Pierce is still completely hooked on his wife. The doting husband is no stranger to publicly professing his love for his woman, whether it’s on social media or during interviews. The blissful couple remains happy and rock-solid, despite scrutiny from the media about Keely’s weight gain in contrast to Pierce’s incredibly fit physique. Pierce is quick to defend his wife’s honor and shoots down any negative press about his lady love. He insists that he loves every inch of his wife just the way she is and encourages her to keep her curves. This is a prime example of a great marriage and an awesome relationship and for that, we’re envious.
3 Sofia Vergara and Joe Manganiello
These two might actually be too flawless to even put into words. Sofia is of course known for her Modern Family role, while Joe is probably best known for his role on True Blood. The two sizzling stars started dating in 2014 and were engaged that same year. They got married in 2015 and remain one of Hollywood’s hottest couples. Prior to meeting Joe, Sofia had been previously engaged and endured a very messy public breakup that sparked lots of controversy even long after the relationship had ended. Her loyal hubby stood by her side and remained her comfort during the media storm that surrounded her during at that time. These two love birds are never lacking when it comes to PDA, often sharing loving photos on social media, giving each other smooches on the red carpet, and walking hand-in-hand. It’s not hard to see that Sofia and Joe are totally head over heels for each other, and we wouldn’t want it any other way.
2 Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel
It goes without saying that we all hoped that someday Justin and Britney would get back together, but when he got with Jessica Biel it felt like all was finally right in the world. Justin and Jessica are both big stars, they’re both athletic, super attractive and they both seem surprisingly down-to-Earth for being as famous as they are. The singer and actress got together in 2007, got married in 2012, and welcomed a son three years later. The long-time lovers try their best to keep their high-profile romance out of the spotlight, but they do speak about one another to the press when asked about their marriage. Jessica recently said that her pop star husband “supports everything that I do and that's why I think he's a wonderful partner,". Justin has proven himself to be his wife’s biggest fan - telling Ellen DeGeneres that he often reflects on how lucky he is to have found her and tells himself, ”if you only make bad decisions for the rest of your life, you made one really good decision." We are seriously smitten with this adorable pair... and absolutely envious of their relationship.
1 Prince William and Kate Middleton
When it comes to couples we can’t help but envy, it doesn’t get any better than Prince William and Kate Middleton. This royal pair met in 2001 while they were both studying at the University of St Andrews. The two parted ways in 2007, only to reunite shortly after. By 2011, the future heirs to the throne got married at Westminster Abbey and created a worldwide media frenzy. The Prince and the Duchess created a royal family of their own, with the birth of their two children. Though they are mostly famous in the UK, it seems like everyone across the globe can’t get enough of William and Kate. They are admired by the masses for their royal relationship, expanding brood, and their dedication to philanthropy. It’s easy to see that the two simply adore one another, and they live a fairy tale life that only exists in our wildest dreams. If there’s one couple who we want to model ourselves and our relationship after, there’s no doubt about it: William and Kate take the cake.
