We each have our own favorite celebrity “it” couples. As much fun as it can be to watch celebrities dating each other and eventually falling in love, famous people don’t always date other famous people. Yes, sorry to break the news to you, but some celebrities do end up with normal folks that are more like us than their rich and famous counterparts. In fact, many of these types of romances end up lasting longer than more high-profile relationships.
Even though these celebrities ended up with lowly, normal people, each couple has a romance and a story behind how they fell in love. If you’d like to learn more about some of the biggest celebrities with their mostly normal partners, how they met, and other fascinating details, take a look at our list of over two dozen famous people who settled down with normals.
Discover the Celebrities Who Got Hitched to Normals Below:
Jon Bon Jovi and Dorothea Hurley
Jon Bon Jovi and Dorothea Hurley were high school sweethearts before they got married. The couple has been together 40 years and married for 31 of those years. In a 2020 interview with People, Bon Jovi named “mutual respect” as the key factor in their successful relationship. And it’s been a fruitful one! The pair have four children together.
When Hurley was asked about the early days of their relationship she had a gut feeling about the fame that her husband would find. ″I always said I was good at spotting potential too,” she explained to People. “I have a gift.”
Ellen Pompeo and Chris Ivery
If you have ever needed a reason to put a little effort into getting ready before making a run to the grocery store, let Ellen Pompeo inspire you. She met her future husband, Chris Ivery while shopping for groceries. The Grey’s Anatomy star and music producer struck up a conversation that would later bloom into a relationship and finally romance. Fun fact: both are from Boston but their paths did not cross until they were both living in Los Angeles.
Matt Damon and Luciana Barroso
While filming 2003’s Stuck on You in Miami, Matt Damon first caught glimpse of Luciana Barroso who was working at a bar where he and cast members were hanging out. He later told Ellen Degeneres about the encounter saying that he “literally saw her across a crowded room.” He also described their meeting as one of fate.
The couple has four children and celebrated their 15th anniversary in 2020. One of the secrets to their relationship, Damon shared with Vogue, is that he and Barroso have a pact to never be apart for more than two weeks. We’re not sure how that’s even possible with his grueling filming schedules but if it’s working, it’s working!
Reese Witherspoon and Jim Toth
Reese Witherspoon shared with Elle that she met her current husband, talent agent Jim Toth, when he rushed in to rescue her from a drunk admirer at a house party. In fact, it was Toth’s friend who was embarrassing himself by talking to Witherspoon. That’s such a normal meet-cute. Withing the same year that they met, in 2011, Toth proposed to Reese. Her kids from a previous marriage to Ryan Phillipe even participated in the wedding. The couple welcomed their son, Tennessee James, in 2012
Witherspoon is known today not just as an actor but as a powerhouse producer with her own production company, Hello Sunshine. She credits her husband for believing in her vision and helping her find the confidence to branch out from acting.
Julianna Margulies and Keith Lieberthal
Julianna Margulies married a “normal” but, in all fairness, her normal looks like a movie star. Her partner Keith Lieberhal looks like he plays a lawyer on TV but he’s actually a practicing attorney. Margulies explained to Ellen DeGeneres in 2011 that the connection was “immediate.” And, they met by chance!
“I met my husband at a dinner party that I wasn’t going to go to through an agent I didn’t sign with,” The Good Wife actor shared. “I just started a Broadway show so I didn’t want to stay out late. Famous last words. I went, and there was Keith.”
The couple got married in 2007 and have one son, Kieran, who they welcomed in 2008.
Julia Roberts and Danny Moder
Superstar Julia Roberts also married a normal, sort of. He’s also in the entertainment industry, so a little less normal than most folks. Roberts met a cinematographer, Danny Moder when he was a camera operator on The Mexican. The rest is history! After 20 years of marriage and three kids, the couple is still going strong. However, they’re extremely hush-hush about their private life so not a ton is known about their romance.
George Lucas and Mellody Hobson
Star Wars creator George Lucas married “an investment guru,” which may be an understatement. Mellody Hobson is the president of Ariel Investments, a Chicago-based financial firm, and sits on the board of a plethora of companies and charities. She has a stellar reputation in Chicago and is not seen as a normal there. She’s also the mother to their daughter, Everest, who was born in 2013, the same year that the couple got married.
Jon and Tracey Stewart
While making the 1997 film, Wishful Thinking, a production assistant for the film arranged for a blind date between Jon Stewart and Tracey McShane. For those of you out there that don’t think blind dates are worth it, think again! The couple hit it off and were married by 2000. The couple are proud parents to two children. Tracey (now Stewart) is an animal activist and she runs a preserve in upstate New York.
Kevin and Danielle Jonas
Joe Jonas married Game of Thrones star Sophie Turner, and Nick Jonas calls international star Priyanka Chopra his wife, which makes Kevin Jonas a bit different from his younger brothers. He was the first Jonas brother to marry and he wed hairdresser Danielle Deleasa in 2009. The Jersey girl did not stay a normal for long. She would soon become very recognizable thanks to the reality series, Married to Jonas.
Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Justin Mikita
Modern Family‘s Jesse Tyler Ferguson and his husband, lawyer Justin Mikita, have two different first meeting stories. Ferguson shared that, though they’ve used the answer “through mutual friends,” the pair actually hit it off at the gym. They’ve been married since 2013, in a ceremony officiated by none other than playwright Tony Kushner (very much not a normal). The couple has a son named Beckett who was born in 2020.
Terry Crews and Rebecca King-Crews
Nine-Nine star Terry Crews has been with his wife Rebecca King-Crews throughout his rise to fame. The pair got married in 1989 and have five kids. King-Crews is a musician by trade, so she knows exactly what the entertainment industry is like. Their shared experience as well as their commitment to marriage maintenance, including a 90-day “no sex” pact to reconnect in other ways, have kept their bond rock solid for over 30 years. We should all be so lucky!
Natalie Portman and Benjamin Millepied
An Academy Award isn’t all Natalie Portman got from her time starring in the 2010 drama Black Swan. Portman also got a husband out of the experience. She and dancer Benjamin Millepied, who choreographed her routines, hit it off on set (so he’s normal-adjacent). In 2011, she dedicated her Oscar to her “beautiful love” and their then-newborn son, Aleph.
They married in 2012 and welcomed their daughter Amalia in 2018. Millepied continues to direct the LA Dance Project, a company that he founded.
Cynthia Nixon and Christine Marinoni
Cynthia Nixon has no doubt been inspired in her public advocacy work by her wife, Christine Marinoni. Marinoni is an education activist and the previous director of New York City’s Alliance for Quality Education, an organization with a mission to ensure that public schools have the resources they need. What a great cause!
Marinoni gave birth to the couple’s son, Max, in 2011 and has been outspoken about the miscarriages she endured prior to that. The pair married in 2012.
Lisa Kudrow and Michel Stern
Many of the cast of Friends went on to marry other celebrities in the entertainment industry but Lisa Kudrow chose another path. In fact, she fell in love with someone out of the business entirely, French advertising executive Michel Stern. That’s not exactly normal but who couldn’t love an ad exec?
They wed in 1995, and when she became pregnant with their only son Julian Murray, it was written into the show (Phoebe was a surrogate for her brother). The secret to the couple’s long run, Kudrow told Glamour, is that they don’t make promises they can’t keep, like feeling the same way about each other forever. “But we are promising to work on whatever problems come up,” she explained. “We’re committed to our marriage working.”
Zoe Saldana and Marco Perego-Saldana
An injury prevented Marco Perego-Saldana from having a professional soccer career (he’s almost normal, oka?). But, thankfully, it allowed him to find his other passion: art and probably the other love of his life. It’s unclear exactly when he met Guardians of the Galaxy hero Zoë Saldana, but the world found out that they had married in secret in 2013, Oprah Magazine reported, and that Perego-Saldana had progressively taken his wife’s last name. They now have three boys, including a set of twins, who they’re striving to raise in a gender-neutral environment, according to Us, which includes parents sharing housework and other stereotypically gendered domestic tasks.
Seth Meyers and Alexi Ashe
Once upon a time… In 2008, human rights lawyer Alexi Ashe went with her sister, who worked in set design on Saturday Night Live, to former cast member Chris Kattan‘s wedding. That’s where the show’s head writer, Seth Meyers, another guest, first saw her. The late-night host got hitched in 2013, and the pair balance their hectic schedules while raising three children: Adelaide, Ashe, and Axel.
Alexi Ashe fights human trafficking as a Brooklyn district attorney. She might be a normal but she is a superhero to many, no doubt.
Paul Rudd and Julie Yaeger
It never hurts to be kind! In 1995, an on-the-rise Paul Rudd traveled to New York and went straight to the office of his new publicist. Julie Yaeger, who worked in the same firm, was there to give a helping hand. She offered to store his luggage so he wouldn’t be late for an audition. Eight years after that, they got married, and 26 years and two kids later, they’re still together. She left her normal status behind and branched out by writing the screenplay for the 2017 film, Fun Mom Dinner.
Eddie Redmayne and Hannah Bagshawe
Eddie Redmayne and his wife Hannah Bagshawe were friends for over a decade before taking their normal friendship to a whole new level. The couple met while attending a charity event while in boarding school (how British!). Their friendship finally blossomed into a romance after Bagshawe visited Redmayne on set while he was filming Les Misérables. Those sweet vocals must have done the trick! The couple eventually wed in 2015 and they are parents to two children: Luke and Iris.
Aaron and Lauren Paul
Breaking Bad star Aaron Paul and his wife Lauren (née Parsekian) have a pretty magical first kiss story. The actor told Jimmy Kimmel that it happened on a Ferris wheel at Coachella, the California music festival where they first met. In 2018, they welcomed their daughter, Story Annabelle, ET reported. In March 2022, they welcomed their second child, Ryden Caspian. In her professional life, Lauren co-founded the Kind Campaign, a non-profit organization that combats bullying among young girls. She might be a normal but she’s fostering needed change as bullying is a terrible blight.
Wanda Sykes and Alex Niedbalski
Comedy legend, Wanda Sykes first spotted her future wife, Alex Niedbalski, while taking a ferry. You can’t get much more normal than that, right? Soon after, a friend introduced Sykes to a French woman who could help Sykes find the right granite countertops for her kitchen remodel. That French woman was none other than Niedbalski. The pair got married in 2008, and Sykes came out to the public just one month later. Together, they have 11-year-old twins: Olivia and Lucas.
Ken Jeong and Tran Ho
Before Ken Jeong was famous for his roles in Community and Dr. Ken, he was an actual doctor, a general physician, and that’s how he met his wife, also a physician, Tran Ho. The couple met at a singles mixer for doctors. You know just normals doing normals’ stuff. Speaking to NPR, Jeong said that he was offered his role in The Hangover while Ho was being treated for Stage 3 breast cancer and that she encouraged him to take the role and not feel guilty about it. She’s been cancer-free for a decade, and the couple share two children: Zooey and Alexa.
Gal Gadot and Yaron Varsano
Wonder Woman‘s Gal Gadot has been married to normal, Yaron Varsano, a real estate developer, for 14 years. In an interview with Glamour, she shared that they met “at this very strange party in the Israeli desert”—all about wellness and holistic healing. They weren’t into the overall vibe, but it turned out they were into each other. On their second date, Varsano told Gadot that he knew he wanted to marry her eventually. His wish came true and the couple have had three kids together through the years: Daniella, Alma, and Maya.
Meryl Streep and Don Gummer
American treasure, Meryl Streep, has something in common with her spouse, Don Gummer, they are both artists (not exactly normal, but you know). The three-time Academy Award-winning actress married the sculptor in 1978. They met when Streep was grieving her boyfriend, John Cazale, who died of lung cancer.
According to Michael Schulman’s Her Again: Becoming Meryl Streep, as reported by People, Streep had to leave the apartment she and Cazale shared, which led to a romance that would end up spanning decades. To help her move, Streep’s brother brought along a friend: Gummer. Though her family worried that she’d moved on too quickly, Streep and Gummer have been married for 43 years and have four children. Each of the children has chosen a life of not normalcy and all have careers in entertainment.
Christian Bale and Sibi Blažić
Oscar-winner Christian Bale met his future wife, Sibi Blažić, through his friend, Winona Ryder (totally normal). The circumstances weren’t all that glamorous on Blažić’s part. At the time, she was working as Ryder’s personal assistant, Marie Claire reported. In addition to being an assistant, she was also trying to launch a career in modeling. She and Bale have been married since 2000 and have two children, but don’t expect to hear many more details about how they fell in love or much else. They are incredibly private about their personal lives and the lives of their kids.
Patrick Dempsey and Jillian Fink
Another Grey’s Anatomy actor to grace this list, Patrick Dempsey, and his makeup artist wife Jillian Fink met when Dempsey came into Fink’s salon for a haircut. However, they very nearly called it quits a few years ago. Before they decided to end things for good, they called off their divorce and made another go of it. “I didn’t feel like we had done all the work. And we both wanted to do that work,” Dempsey told People in 2016.
He credited counseling for helping their family, which includes three children, get through the rough patch, and in 2019, the pair celebrated their 20th anniversary.

Learn Which Celebrities Have Had the Most Unbelievable Weddings!
David Harbour and Lily Allen Celebrated Their Wedding at In-N-Out Burger
“In a wedding officiated by the king himself, the people’s princess wed her devoted, low-born, but kind credit card holder in a beautiful ceremony lit by the ashen skies courtesy of a burning state miles away in the midst of a global pandemic,” Harbour wrote on Instagram beside photos of the couple at the Graceland Wedding Chapel, and later, at In-N-Out. “Refreshments were served at a small reception following.”
Lily Allen and David Harbour were married on September 7, 2020. They decided to go ahead and get married during the pandemic because of Allen’s two daughters, Ethel and Marnie. The girls struggled with Harbour’s place in their family prior to the wedding.
“We were riding around the beginning of pandemic — she has two kids, these beautiful daughters, 8 and 9 — and we were riding bikes out in the country trying to figure out what we were gonna do for the next year or however long it was going to take,” Harbour said in an interview with Jimmy Kimmel. And the little one was riding along and she was going like, ‘David, Dad, David, Dad.’ Because the ‘d’ got her confused,” he noted. “And the older one got very upset with that, which I understand, and was like, ‘He’s not our dad! He’s not our dad!’”
Joe Manganiello Did a ‘Magic Mike’-Inspired Dance at He and Sofia Vergara’s Reception

There Were Giant, Rotating Cakes on Each Table for Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker’s Cermony in Italy

There was also a live performance of “Can’t Help Falling in Love” sung by opera legend Andrea Bocelli. Further, the entire event was hosted by Dolce & Gabbana. The venue as well as a yacht belonging to the luxury brand were used by Kardashian and Barker. They and other members of their families were also outfitted in garments from D&G.
Julia Roberts Walked Down the Aisle Barefoot
Julia Roberts walked down the aisle barefoot for her first marriage. She married Lyle Lovett in 1993. The Pretty Woman actor opted for an understated Commes des Garçons white dress for the 1993 nuptials, which People reported happened after a whirlwind romance with Lovett of “three or four weeks.”
Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka Had an ‘Orange Boy’
During an episode of Live! With Kelly and Michael, Kelly Ripa, who was a guest at the 2014 ceremony, explained this cute and offbeat wedding detail. Neil and David’s son, Gideon, was originally going to be the ring bearer at their wedding but instead said, “I want to be the orange boy.” Kelly recalled that Gideon “passed out oranges to everybody as he came down the aisle.” Neil and David’s daughter, Harper, served as the flower girl.
Ripa also revealed that there were fireworks, magic tricks, and a performance by Sir Elton John. She elaborated on the magic portion of the ceremony saying it was done “Because you know, Neil is way into magic.” So, it’s clear this was no ordinary ceremony!
Sarah Jessica Parker Did Not Want a White Wedding Dress
Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick got married in 1997. The couple sprung a surprise wedding on unassuming guests, inviting friends to New York for what they thought was a party. 100 guests gathered at New York’s Angel Oresanz Synagogue. SJP chose an unconventional black dress to wear for the wedding. Apparently, the risk was not worth the reward and the actor later regretted the choice.
“I wore black on my wedding day, and I really regret that. I was too embarrassed to get married in white, and both Matthew and I were reluctant to have people pay so much attention to us,” SJP told Marie Claire. “Which is ridiculous, because that’s when you can relish the attention when it’s natural. We treated it like it was a big party on a Monday night, and I regret it.”
They could always have a do-over!
Keanu Reeves Showed Up to Robert Downey Jr.’s Wedding on a Motorcycle
Want to hear the most Keanu Reeves thing ever? He attended Robert Downey Jr.’s 2005 wedding to producer Susan Levin. But, he showed up in style. He came on his motorcycle to the wedding that was held underneath a gazebo built for the occasion. on Long Island. You know, he just showed up in formal wear on a motorcycle, as one does.
Samira Wiley and Lauren Morelli Chose A Very Unique Wedding Theme
Funfetti was the theme of Samira Wiley and Lauren Morelli‘s cute 2917 wedding. “My favourite detail from that wedding turned into confetti everywhere,” Samira told The Knot of the unusual theme. “We had a confetti cannon … It shoots thousands of pieces of confetti right after the beat drops. It’s amazing.” Sounds festive!
Michael Jordan and Yvette Prieto Pitched a HUGE Tent
Michael Jordan and Yvette Prieto used the biggest wedding tent in history for their 2013 nuptials. The tent was also larger than Michael’s own home — his house takes up 35,000 square feet, Buzzfeed reported. The tent totalled 40,000 square feet! If it sounds like that would be rather expensive, you’d be right! The price tag for the wedding topped $10 million. Wowza!
Idris Elba’s Tattoo Inspired Part of Bride, Sabrina Dhowre Elba’s Wedding Gown
Sabrina Dhowre Elba‘s wedding train was embroidered with a message inspired by her husband, Idris Elba‘s tattoo. Designer Vera Wang custom-made Sabrina’s wedding gown for the 2019 ceremony. Vera explained to Vogue that Sabrina asked for the bottom of her train to be embroidered with the phrase, “This train carries no wrong-doers” as a tribute to an arm tattoo that Idris has.
Not only was the dress special, but the location for the Elbas’ wedding was also pretty unique. The couple was married in Marrakesh, Morocco over the course of a three-day extravaganza that included plenty of camel rides, and fire-eaters, acrobats, and belly dancers performing. Sounds like a real party!
Katie Holmes’ Disappeared on Her Wedding Day with Tom Cruise
Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes’ $3 million wedding was filled with drama. Before the ceremony even began, Katie’s parents, who are practising Catholics and who raised their daughter to be also, refused to attend the wedding because of her choice of partner (Katie’s dad thought Tom seemed like too much of a control freak) and the whole Scientology thing. The couple moved forward with the wedding without her parents only for the bride to go missing on the big day.
Tom was standing at the alter waiting for Katie to join him with all the A-list guests in attendance. Leah Remini, who was in attendance, wrote that it felt like an “eternity.” Finally, after keeping guests and her groom waiting for longer than 20 minutes, Katie emerged. The couple’s marriage only lasted six years but perhaps the strange wedding should have been a red flag.
Alexis Ohanian Did a Carousel Reveal for Serena Williams
Alexis Ohanian did the most for his bride, the iconic, Serena Williams. The couple’s 2017 wedding had a sort of fairytale theme with chandeliers outfitted with gold birdcages and throne chairs for the happy couple to sit on. The wedding was already magical, but as the party went into the early hours of the next day, Ohanian revealed a white carousel for Williams as a surprise. Now, think of the biggest thing you’ve ever been surprised by. Can you imagine finding a magical carousel at about 1:30 AM? What a dream!

Nicole Richie and Joel Madden‘s 2010 wedding had a larger-than-life guest in attendance. On the day of their nuptials, an elephant was seen at Nicole’s father, Lionel Richie‘s home, which is where the ceremony took place. Is this the weirdest celebrity marriage detail on this list? It’s possible! What’s even more interesting about it is that Nicole had talked about wanting an elephant at her wedding for years! It was always her plan.
In 2005, Nicole said on Larry King Live! that she wanted “a very, very big wedding” with “hundreds of people and elephants.” She explained that she wanted an elephant present “because elephants are really good luck, and they’re beautiful animals.” You got to give it up for this animal-lover who always knew what she wanted for the big day.
Arthur Miller Married Marilyn Monroe Using a Borrowed Ring
Here’s a bit of a blast from the past. Arthur Miller married Marilyn Monroe in 1956 and on the day of their ceremony, Miller gave his bride a borrowed ring! Yes, Miller used a ring borrowed from his mother to marry Monroe. Three days after the nuptials, Miller gave Monroe her actual wedding ring which was inscribed with the message, “A to M, June 1956. Now is forever.” Unfortunately, that was not how things shook out. The couple divorced in 1961.
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s Wedding Outfits Were from Their Children
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt had some really cute contributions from their kids incorporated into their wardrobes for the big day. Angelina’s wedding dress and veil were created with the help of the late Versace tailor, Luigi Massi.

Ms Jolie was not the only person who got some help from the kids. Pitt reportedly forgot the tie he had planned to were for the ceremony and, instead, wore one that he borrowed from one of his sons.
Despite all of the good fortune you’d expect for these touches from the kids to bring, the couple split after Jolie filed for divorce in 2016.
Meghan Markle Carried a Very Special Bouquet on Her Wedding Day
America’s very own royal, Meghan Markle and her husband Prince Harry had a huge wedding celebration that became a sort of national holiday in the UK. Despite the extreme scale of the ceremony (and all the other events around it), Markle carried a very humble wedding bouquet down the aisle. Prince Harry handpicked the flowers in it which included a very special flower for him.
One of the flowers in the special bouquet was forget-me-nots. The name and symbolism alone are sweet but it’s even more special when you understand that they were Princess Diana‘s favorite flowers. How heartwarming is that?
It Was a Really Long Table for Kim Kardashian and Kanye West
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West had an over-the-top wedding in Florence, Italy in 2014. Guests were seated at a 224-foot-long marble table to take in the skyline views of the city. It might be hard for you to imagine a table this length and you’d be totally right to not comprehend what such a monstrosity might look like. To put it into perspective, if you stood the table up, lengthwise, it would be 3/4 the height of the Statue of Liberty!
The rest is history as this couple’s marriage ended after seven years in 2021.
Beyonce and Jay-Z’s Flower Power
Superstar couple Beyonce and Jay-Z had a lavish wedding in 2008. It included, among other luxe features, a whole bunch of dendrobium orchids, Beyonce’s favorite flower.

Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher Did Not Drop the Big Bucks on Rings
Mila Kunis shared on Conan in 2016 that Ashton Kutcher bought her a “stunning” engagement ring. But that wasn’t necessarily the case with the wedding bands she chose for their nuptials. Both were more humble rings from Etsy; Mila’s band cost $90, while Ashton’s was just $100.
Priyanka Chopra’s Wedding Dress Was On Another Level
For the 2018 wedding of Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas, the bride’s dress was bedazzled beyond belief. Chopra wore no fewer than two gowns for the ceremony. One of which was a custom dress designed by Ralph Lauren. The creation of the ensemble included adding 32,000 pearlescent sequins to Priyanka’s hand-embroidered coat, plus embellishing the strapless dress worn underneath it with over two million more sequins, according to Vogue. You read that correctly! That’s a ton of detail!
Ariana Grande Wore Mismatched Earrings for Her Wedding to Dalton Gomez
Ariana Grande wore mismatched diamond and pearl Lorraine Schwartz earrings for her 2021 wedding to Dalton Gomez. The earrings were a very special part of her ensemble as they matched the engagement ring she wore and were worn in a unique way to offer meaning to the bride. One was placed normally and the other was attached upside down. According to Vogue, this combination “represents appreciating the lowest or the ‘upside down’ moments in [Ariana’s] life and how they have contributed to where and who she is now.”
That’s certainly a bit different than most!
Victoria and David Beckham Turned to a Disney Classic for Their Wedding Theme
It’s been a minute since Victoria and David Beckham tied the knot. The couple wed in 1999, and they’ve been going strong ever since. They turned to a pretty unconventional Disney animated film to help inform the aesthetic of their wedding, 1973’s Robin Hood. Hello! Magazine reported that colors from the movie, purple, green, and burgundy, all became the color scheme for their wedding!
