In Hollywood, relationships tend to have a much shorter shelf life than they do in the world of us normal folks. Every day, it seems like the tabloids are reporting about some new celebrity romance that’s come to an end. Most recently, our hearts broke when it was announced celebrity couples like Adele and Simon Konecki, Pitch Perfect couple Anna Camp and Skylar Astin, and Wendy Williams and her longtime husband were parting ways. Can’t the universe just let love be?!
Even though there seem to be many famous people who are just getting out of relationships, there are just as many hopping into new ones. Now that we’re a few months into 2019, we wouldn't have guessed some of the celebrity couples who are gracing the headlines with their unexpected romances. There have been tons of celebrities who’ve moved on to new relationships (or even ended ones before we knew they were a thing). At this rate, there are bound to be at least a few celebrity engagements before the end of the year.
In this list, we’ve compiled all of the newest celebrity couples that fans likely don’t even know are items. Keep reading to see which stars are off the market!
20 Kiernan Shipka And Charlie Oldman
Even though Chilling Adventures of Sabrina fans are totally shipping onscreen lovers Kiernan Shipka and Ross Lynch to get together in real life, it turns out the young actress actually has a beau.
This spring, 19-year-old Kiernan went public with her relationship with 20-year-old actor Charlie Oldman, who happens to be the son of legendary actor Gary Oldman. The relationship comes as a bit of a surprise to fans since Kiernan was adamant last November that she didn’t have any time to date.
The young couple has been spotted hanging out one-on-one at various locations in Los Angeles. But it wasn’t until Charlie posted a cuddly selfie of the two online featuring a heart emoji that fans took it as confirmation that they were together. Kiernan has since uploaded pictures with her new man, too.
19 Selena Gomez And Austin North
Now that her ex-boyfriend Justin Bieber is officially off the market, it looks like Selena Gomez is looking to move on, too. This past January, the singer was linked to her friend Austin North, which has made fans question whether she has a new man or not.
According to Hollywood Life, Selena and Austin started getting closer following her release from treatment last December. They’ve been spotted hanging out multiple times, including attending Selena’s church service together.
“He understands the pressure that comes with fame, and like Selena, is a big believer in God,” a source told the publication before adding that they’re taking things slow so Selena can focus on her health above all.
18 Brooklyn Beckham And Hana Cross
We swore that Brooklyn Beckham was still dating Chloë Grace Moretz, but clearly, their break-up must’ve been for good because the aspiring photographer has a new woman on his mind.
According to Daily Mail, Brooklyn has been seeing model Hana Cross since last November. Many fans didn’t even realize they were a thing until they began posting cuddly pictures of each other on social media. “Brooklyn’s family really loves her,” a source said of the pair. “She fits in perfectly.”
Evidently, things are going well between the couple because his famous mom Victoria has already given her seal of approval. Of Hana, the source said, “Her and Victoria get along very well.”
17 Emma Roberts And Garrett Hedlund
It was only earlier this year that news broke that American Horror Story co-stars Emma Roberts and Evan Peters had called off their years-long engagement. Although the couple has been on and off in the past, it seems like this split was for good considering Emma has already been linked to someone else.
This past March, almost immediately after her break-up news was announced, media outlets confirmed Emma had moved on with Garrett Hedlund. The two have been spotted sharing multiple PDA-filled moments in New York since going public with their relationship.
“Garrett and Emma have been friends, but this is new, casual, and just a couple of weeks old,” a source told Us Weekly. “Emma and Evan were heading for a split and now are just friends. Evan has moved out. It wasn’t a bad breakup.”
16 Pete Davidson And Kate Beckinsale
We couldn’t stop hearing about Pete Davidson when he was engaged to Ariana Grande last year. But since the young couple broke up, there hasn’t been too much word on the comedian. It turns out he’s already moved on, and it’s with someone famous.
Pete has been spotted with actress Kate Beckinsale, who’s 20 years his senior, on numerous occasions since his split from Ari, including at a Golden Globes after party. Although they haven’t publicly confirmed their relationship, sources say the two are enjoying their casual romance.
“She’s very happy with Pete,” one insider told People. “They have really similar senses of humour and she’s always laughing with him.”
15 Rita Ora And Andrew Garfield
A part of us still isn’t over the fact that Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone are no longer a thing. But clearly, the two of them have moved on since they’ve both been linked to other people since their split several years ago.
Most recently (and surprisingly), Andrew was reportedly dating singer Rita Ora. The couple were photographed several times late last year, including over the Christmas holiday. However, this celebrity couple was so low-key that most fans didn’t even know they were an item until reports that they’d broken up began surfacing.
“The relationship just fizzled out,” one source told Mirror. “It’s sad but they have both accepted the situation and moved on.”
14 Lady Gaga And Jeremy Renner
Although Lady Gaga called off her engagement to Christian Carino last year, it seems that the pop star has already jumped back into the dating game. This past March, media reports suggested that she was getting cozy with actor Jeremy Renner.
At the time, a source confirmed the two had been “hanging out” and that she’d been spending “a lot of time” with Jeremy’s six-year-old daughter, Ava, Elle reports. However, the source added that the celebs were unsure if they wanted their relationship to turn romantic or not, especially since Gaga just got out of a relationship.
13 Rami Malek And Lucy Boynton
Rami Malek and Lucy Boynton met on the set of Bohemian Rhapsody in which they played onscreen lovers. And it became clear that these two are also together in real life if their adorable displays of affection during the movie’s press tour and awards season was any indication.
In January, while accepting an award at the Palm Springs International Film Festival Awards Gala, Rami didn’t hold back from thanking his co-star-turned-girlfriend. “Thank you, Lucy Boynton. You have been my ally, my confidant, you are my love,” he said. “I appreciate you so much.” Are you swooning yet?
12 Halsey And Yungblud
Although a part of us is holding out hope that Halsey will get back together with G-Eazy, it doesn’t look like that’ll be happening anytime soon. It turns out the singer actually has a new man in her life, and their romance started brewing earlier this year.
Halsey was first linked to alternative rocker Yungblud in February, and the rumours have just kept coming since then. The couple was especially cozy during March’s iHeartRadio Music Awards, where they didn’t hide their PDA for the cameras.
Still, considering that Yungblud isn’t as famous as his leading lady, most fans don’t even know who he is, let alone that he’s in a new relationship with Halsey.
11 Kehlani And Javie Young-White
Fans were all surprised last year when singer Kehlani announced her first pregnancy - especially since the star wasn’t in a public relationship with anyone. After much talk in the media, the celebrity finally decided to reveal the paternity of her baby.
While speaking to Queen Radio, the 23 year old revealed she’d been in a relationship with her guitarist, Javie Young-White, for some time. She explained that her pregnancy was actually planned.
“When I found out that I [could] get a break from touring because I’ve been primarily a touring artist, that’s when I planned for it for this time,” she told the station. “It was planned so we had a short time frame of [achieving our goal].”
10 Nikki Bella And Artem Chigvintsev
Although there was a time when we were certain Nikki Bella would end up with her ex-fiancée John Cena, the reality star has found love once again!
At the beginning of this year, it was confirmed that Nikki was dating her Dancing With The Stars partner Artem Chigvintsev. They met on Season 25 of the reality show back in 2017.
“They’ve been spending time together for a long time, but it’s nothing serious right now,” a source told People. “They have a strong attraction to each other, but they’re just having fun. They’re both extremely busy with their own careers, so they spend time together when they can.”
9 Channing Tatum And Jessie J
One of the most unlikely celebrity couples of the moment has got to be Channing Tatum and Jessie J! It was only last year that Channing announced his split from Jenna Dewan after almost a decade of marriage. But fans lost it when the actor then stepped out with his new singer girlfriend, who looks identical to his now-ex-wife.
Since then, the couple hasn’t been afraid to post about each other on social media or to be spotted by the paparazzi while hanging out. “Wishing you the happiest day filled with all the love and all the light,” Channing wrote about Jessie online during her birthday. “You came into this world on this day and lit it on fire. You have blessed our eyes, our ears, our hearts and our lives. So thank you for just being you.”
8 Blac Chyna And Soulja Boy
It’s been tough to keep track of who Blac Chyna has been dating since her dramatic split from Rob Kardashian in 2017. But according to TMZ, the reality star has been romancing rapper Soulja Boy after breaking up with Kid Buu.
The publication said the couple began dating in February after Soulja directly messaged her over social media. The couple then met in person at Sean Kingston’s LA penthouse, where TMZ says they got together. Since then, the casual couple has been spotted hitting up Grammy parties and Hollywood hotspots together.
However, fans shouldn’t automatically think this is a serious relationship. Chyna has also been linked to her ex Kid Buu in recent months, so it’s clear she’s just playing the field at the moment.
7 Olivia Munn And Tucker Roberts
Olivia Munn is usually pretty low-key about her personal life, so it’s no surprise the actress has yet to confirm her rumoured romance with businessman Tucker Roberts, who is 10 years her junior. However, we’d say the photos speak for themselves.
The couple was first spotted doing Christmas shopping in late December, and then the following week they were photographed getting cozy at Scooter Braun’s New Year's Eve party. The photos showed a smiling Olivia sitting on her rumoured boyfriend’s lap. Considering it was Scooter who posted the photos on social media, it appears the couple doesn’t mind if the world knows they are in fact together.
6 Zac Efron And Sarah Bro
Sorry ladies - Zac Efron is currently off the market! The 31-year-old actor has been linked to 23-year-old Olympian swimmer Sarah Bro after they were first seen hitting the gym together. According to Us Weekly, the new couple only decided to make things official this past March.
“[They] looked like they were having a great time,” a source said about the couple after seeing them attend a MMA match together. “[They were] not overly publicly affectionate.”
This relationship comes as a bit of a surprise as Zac revealed a few years ago he’s not a relationship sort of guy. “Dating is something I’ll never be able to do,” he told The UK Times. “As in the dictionary definition of dating, because one way or another, I’ve impacted that person’s life and they’ll soon realize it.”
5 Amber Rose And AE Edwards
Honestly, it seems like just yesterday that Amber Rose split from her husband and first baby daddy Wiz Khalifa. But not only has the model found love with someone else, she’s also expecting her second child with him.
Just this April, the celebrity surprised fans by revealing her pregnancy news to social media, confirming the baby’s father is her boyfriend Alexander “AE” Edwards. It was quite the surprise for many fans who hadn’t realized Amber was seriously involved with anyone.
According to People, the low-key couple has been dating since September 2018, but weren’t photographed together until the following month. Amber has since been increasingly public about their relationship on social media.
4 Ben Affleck And Lindsay Shookus
Most fans know Lindsay Shookus as the woman that Ben Affleck moved on with directly after his divorce from Jennifer Garner. Although the media reported the couple broke up sometime last year, new reports say they’ve decided to give their romance another go.
“She has a kid and an ex-husband and a job in New York and Ben has his family and a job in L.A., and while they love and respect each other, they just realized it wasn’t going to work,” a source told Us Weekly about the reason for their initial break-up.
Since Lindsay herself isn’t a celebrity, don’t expect this couple to be photographed together regularly. Sources say they’re trying to avoid any more bad press, considering all the negativity Lindsay received when they first went public with their romance.
3 Adam Lambert And Javi Costa Polo
Singer Adam Lambert has always been notoriously private about his personal life. We can’t even remember the last time he had a public relationship! But this past March, the musician confirmed he’s very much taken at the moment.
Adam posted a cute selfie of himself and model Javi Costa Polo with the caption “LUV U,” confirming that the two were an item. When one fan commented that they “finally” made their relationship official, Adam wrote back, “Honey, we have been official for months. IG isn’t the gatekeeper of our truth!”
According to People, this is Adam’s first relationship since breaking up with Sauli Koskinen in 2013.
2 Jim Carrey And Ginger Gonzaga
Jim Carrey has become more private about his personal life since his split from Jenny McCarthy years ago. But this past January, the actor confirmed he had a new woman in his life - Ginger Gonzaga! The couple met while filming The Kidding, and they finally confirmed their romance by attending the Golden Globes hand-in-hand.
“Not bad for a first date!” Jim joked to People. Of his new girlfriend, he later told Extra, "She's incredible... [has] wicked talent, and [is an] amazing person.” Maybe there could be wedding bells in their future!
1 Nicolas Cage And Erika Koike
This relationship ended before we even knew it was a thing! In late March, reports surfaced saying wacky actor Nicolas Cage had married makeup artist Erika Koike. The pair eloped to a spur-of-the-moment ceremony in Las Vegas.
However, it wasn’t a happily ever after. Only four days after saying ‘I do,’ Nicolas applied for an annulment. He claimed he’d been intoxicated during the time of the ceremony and Erika hadn’t been completely honest with him about everything.
According to People, the couple had been dating for at least a year, despite most fans being in the dark. Nicole and Erika were first spotted vacationing together in Puerto Rico last year.
