The celebrity world is known for being rife with breakups, despite many couples being seen as the “perfect” Hollywood power couples. However, many celebrities have defied the odds while also proving that age is just a number. Here are some of the celebrities with huge age gaps.
1. Nikki Reed and Ian Somerhalder
Age Gap: 9 years
It seems that these stars (who both played vampires in their respective television shows) didn’t care about their age gap of nine years when they began dating in 2014. After only a few months of dating, the two got engaged and married in 2015. The match made in vampire heaven seems to be going strong, and the couple has a three-year-old daughter.
2. Behati Prinsloo and Adam Levine
Age Gap: 10 years
The Maroon 5 frontman wed the Victoria’s Secret model in 2014. Despite the 10-year age gap, the two are enjoying married life with their two daughters, Dusty Rose and Gio Grace.
3. Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas
Age Gap: 10 years
Another couple with a 10-year age gap is the former beauty queen and actress Priyanka Chopra and singer Nick Jonas, with the former being much older. The two held a lavish three-day wedding in December 2018 and had four more wedding receptions to celebrate their love for each other.
4. Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds
Age Gap: 11 years
This couple was an unlikely pair when the two met while filming Green Lantern in 2010. When they worked together, they were both in relationships. They started dating a year later, and secretly got married in 2012. The couple has remained one of the most followed couples in Hollywood. They have two children together and have been married for eight years.
5. Beyonce and Jay-Z
Age Gap: 12 years
They may be among the mismatched couples, but this duo remains one of Hollywood’s power couples. They started dating in 2001, and got married after seven years of dating. They welcomed their first child, Blue Ivy Carter, in 2012 and twins, Sir and Rumi, in 2017. While Jay-Z has reportedly cheated on Beyonce, it seems like the couple is keen on working on their relationship.
6. Deborra Lee-Furness and Hugh Jackman
Age Gap: 13 years
Versatile actor Hugh Jackman is 13 years younger than his partner, Deborra. Despite this huge age difference, the couple has maintained their relationship for over two decades. They first met during the 1995 Australian show, Correlli, and got married after a year. They have two adopted children.
7. Camila Alves and Matthew McConaughey
Age Gap: 13 years
The two stars have been married since 2012. They are among the most beloved couples in the entertainment industry, showing that age is but a number when it comes to maintaining a strong relationship. The key? Removing the toxicity from the relationship. Their love has produced three beautiful children: Levi, Livingston, and Vida.
8. Amal Alamuddin and George Clooney
Age Gap: 17 years
George Clooney was among the most-sought-after bachelor before he met international law and human rights lawyer Amal Alamuddin at a dinner in 2013. They hit it off immediately and tied the knot in 2014. They are now proud parents to twins, Ella and Alexander.
9. Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Jason Statham
Age Gap: 20 years
They may have a huge age gap, but it doesn’t show one bit when you see the couple attend events as the two have remained deeply in love. While they are yet to be married, the couple welcomed their son, Jack Oscar, in 2017.
10. Annette Benning and Warren Beatty
Age Gap: 21 years
Warren Beatty used to be a ladies’ man before he met his wife, Annette Benning. The couple has been married since 1992 and has four children together.
These couples have remained committed to their relationship despite the difference in their ages. If you are ready to be committed to your partner, you should start choosing unique wedding sets for your own nuptials.
