Becoming a famous personality around the world is something that a lot of people strive to achieve. Aside from the fame and fortune that comes with the job, becoming a celebrity also means they get to meet a lot of interesting people along the way. Among these are people who are influential in their fields and also possess a vast amount of wealth. Who needs credit cards when you have that much cash?
We’re sure some of you wonder what it’d be like to have billionaires as spouses. Aside from living a cushy life, let the celebrities on our list let you in on the pros and cons of marrying one of the wealthiest people in the world.
Janet Jackson & Wissam Al Mana
Janet Jackson is, without a doubt, one of the biggest names in the music industry during her time. Her songs Together Again and All For You are still played today. Aside from being Michael Jackson’s sister, she did work hard and earned a name for herself. In April of 2010, Janet Jackson met Qatari businessman Wissam Al Mana. According to The Richest, he currently has a net worth of $1 billion. With so much wealth, this family wouldn’t have to worry about things such as mortgages. Some might think their wedding ceremony was an extravagant and public affair, but it was held in secret in 2012.
Sadly, after giving birth to their first child, Eissa, the couple would find themselves arguing over how to raise their son due to their different religious beliefs. One thing leads to another and in 2017, three months after Eissa was born, the couple finally parted ways.
Miranda Kerr & Evan Spiegel
Starting her career off as a Victoria’s Secret model, Miranda Kerr definitely knew how to grow her empire. Aside from modeling, she was also able to run a business, Kora Organics, and it turned out that she’s actually pretty good at it. After calling it quits with Orlando Bloom, Miranda Kerr met Snapchat’s CEO, Evan Spiegel in 2014. The two developed a romantic relationship which eventually led to their marriage in 2017. The Australian model first met Spiegel during a dinner event hosted by Louis Vuitton. From then on, things went slow and steady between the two of them before they finally admitted to each other about their feelings.
The couple later started their own family. They have two children, Hart and Myles. With how things are going, the Kerr-Spiegel family won’t be running out of gas anytime soon. As of 2020, Evan Spiegel has a net worth of $4.6 billion.
Salma Hayek & Francois-Henri Pinault
American-Mexican actress Salma Hayek was able to gather a huge fan base at the start of her career. With her stunning looks and fierce persona, her roles were quite versatile. Though she originally started in the TelaNovela, Teresa, she eventually stepped up and moved into the big screen.
In the spring of 2006, Frida actress Salma Hayek met Francois-Henri Pinault during a gala at the Palazzo Grassi in Venice. In 2007, they announced their engagement along with Hayek’s pregnancy. Although Pinault, the CEO of Kering, is a man of wealth himself, Hayek prefers to keep a sturdy flooring for herself to stand upon, saying, “I have a system in my life that I’ve chosen, where my expenses from before the marriage are my expenses.” Throughout their relationship, the two have always been there for each other through thick and thin. As of 2019, Francois-Henri Pinault has earned a net worth of $33.2 Billion.
Elle MacPherson & Jeffrey Soffer
Starting her career off as a model, Eleanor Nancy Macpherson eventually expanded her network by venturing into acting and modeling as well. Her modeling career is what gave her a headstart, with her almost perfect figure, she was featured on the cover of Sports Illustrated five times.
Australian supermodel Elle Macpherson got married to Jeffrey Soffer in Fiji the year after he survived a helicopter crash in the Bahamas – an event that somehow brought the two closer together. Unfortunately, things didn’t go so well for the two because, by 2017, they went their separate ways. Macpherson ended up getting Soffer’s mansion, which was worth $26 Million, and also received $53 million in cash. Not a big loss for Soffer since he has earned a net worth of $2 billion. As for MacPherson, despite getting such a lavish home to herself, she purchased her own place and got the assistance of a moving company.
Jami Gertz & Antony Ressler
If you were born in the 80s, well, Jami Gertz will be someone you might be familiar with. Being one of the biggest names during her time, she starred in various films such as Crossroads, The Lost Boys, Less Than Zero, and Quicksilver. These films are only some of her previous projects.
For more than 3 decades now, Jami Gertz has been living happily with her husband Antony Ressler. Since their marriage in 1989, they’ve been finding ways to help make the world a better place to live in. The couple donates often to various charity organizations, an amount close to $10 million. Together, the couple has three children. Oliver being the eldest, Simon in the middle, and Theo is the youngest. The Lost Boys star and her philanthropist-by-heart husband Ressler, along with their three sons, continue to make investments for charity projects and organizations. As of 2020, Antony Ressler has earned a net worth of $4 billion.
Serena Williams & Alexis Ohanian
The story of how the tennis player Serena Williams met her now-husband Alexis Ohanian, the co-founder of Reddit, might sound like a romantic-comedy that came to life. The two first met at a hotel in Italy in 2015, not knowing what the other’s profession was at the time. What started as small talk, became the start of their relationship. After a year and a half, Ohanian invited Williams to go to Italy with him. There, he proposed to her at the very hotel where they first met.
Williams has quite a fortune to her credit, but so does Ohanian who has a net worth of $10 million. Both are very successful in their individual fields, and they are really a great pair because they can build each other up and support each other when they need it the most. They seem to also share their assets and have all the lavish things life has to offer.
Holly Valance & Nick Candy
Actress Holly Valence swooned the hearts of many as she was able to gather a huge fanbase at the start of her career. Aside from being an actress, she also does very well in terms of modeling and singing as well. With the vast amount of talent she has, she quickly rose to fame.
To be proposed to at the beach with the words “Will You Marry Me” written in the fire would have been quite the romantic gesture, but to have it happen in the Maldives? Must be many a woman’s dreams! Nick Candy proposed to Holly Valance in 2012 and he definitely deserves credit for knowing how to make his girlfriend happy. Ever since they’ve been happily married, eventually becoming a family with two daughters: Luka Violet Toni and Nova Skye Coco. The couple also makes an effort to share their fortune by participating in charity projects. Nick Candy’s current net worth is $1.1 billion.
Stephanie Seymour & Peter Brant
Before we talk about Stephanie Seymour’s current relationship, let us mention her past one. The actress was once married to Guns and Roses frontman, Axl Rose. However, like most celebrity relationships, their union didn’t really work out. Love is always worth another try. With that being said, she is definitely one of those who gave it another shot.
It seems that she gave her ‘another shot’ another shot. Seymour and Peter Brant thought they were ready to part ways but had a change of heart during the trial. Imagine this scene: husband and wife announcing to everyone that they were taking back every terrible allegation they have thrown at each other and were reconciling. Crazier than fiction, right? Since then, Brant and Seymour have continued to live happily with their two sons and one daughter: Harry, Peter Jr., and Lily Margaret. To their credit, thinking about their kids is probably one of the reasons why they stayed together. Not fame or wealth, although Peter Brant does keep his family comfortable with his net worth of $800 million.
Jane Fonda & Ted Turner
Still being one of the most poised actresses despite the years, Jane Fonda is definitely someone to look up to in the industry. Having a good track record in terms of her achievements, it seems like the big screen isn’t her only forte.
From 1991 to 2001, Fonda was married to Ted Turner, who is the founder of CNN and has a net worth of $2.2 billion. They began their marriage like lovesick teenagers and never wanted to be away from each other for too long. Unfortunately, the “flooring” of their relationship started to crumble as the years went by. Communicating with each other slowly became difficult for them to do. In time, this eventually led to both of them choosing to separate. Although all’s well that ends well for both, Fonda’s adopted daughter Mary Williams did write about how the experience affected her in a book titled The Lost Daughter.
Princess Charlene of Monaco & Prince Albert II
Princess of Monaco Charlene Wittstock managed to make headlines not only through sports – as she was also hailed as a princess as well. Though she was born in Bulawayo, Rhodesia, her family eventually moved to South Africa during her younger years.
Before becoming a princess, Wittstock was an Olympic swimmer for South Africa. If you are curious how she became royalty, her road to obtaining that title started in 2000 when she and Prince Albert II first met during a sports event. Since then, the Prince and the Princess have been married for more than 10 years and are happily raising their twins, Jacques and Gabriella. The children were born in 2014. With such precious gifts to take care of, we won’t be too surprised if the couple takes extra measures to ensure their safety. This includes getting a top-notch home security system, which should be easy to do thanks to Prince Albert II’s net worth of $1 billion.
Heather Mills & Paul McCartney
Heather Mills may have earned a name for herself through her modeling career, but she does seem to have a lot more to offer. Who would have thought that she’s still slaying the runway on a prosthetic leg? Her car accident in the past didn’t slow her down in terms of her career.
In 1999, Heather Mills met Paul McCartney at an awards ceremony. Since then, the two were inseparable. Did you know that he even wrote her a love song? We think this is the grandest of all romantic gestures—especially coming from Paul McCartney. He proposed to Mills in July of 2001 during her birthday and their intimate wedding ceremony was held the following year. The ceremony took place in County Monaghan, Ireland. The following year, they had a daughter named Beatrice. Unfortunately, the couple separated ways in 2006 with Mills receiving quite a sum of McCartney’s $1.3 billion net worth.
Talulah Riley & Elon Musk
English Talulah Riley worked her way up into the limelight by working on different projects. Some of the projects she worked in are Pride & Prejudice, St Trinian’s, The Boat That Rocked, St Trinian’s 2: The Legend of Fritton’s Gold, and Inception.
Talulah Riley first met tech mogul Elon Musk in 2008. He was already significantly wealthy back then, but certainly, nothing compared to his current net worth of $1.7 billion. The two would later develop a relationship and exchanged vows in 2010. It eventually became clear for both of them that their relationship was built on top of unsteady flooring, however. They tried to separate twice, the first time in 2012 and the second time in 2014. While they are now on different paths, it is reported that they are still on good terms with each other and wish for nothing but the best in each other’s lives.
Alvaro de Miranda Neto & Athina Onassis
Álvaro de Miranda Neto is quite prominent in the world of sports — he’s continually won awards in the Olympics. He may be very good at one thing, but he also does very well in terms of touring the globe. His name in sports is a huge, but sometimes, one can’t have the best of both worlds.
After many years of being acquainted with each other, the two showjumpers Alvaro de Miranda Neto and Athina Onassis decided to get married in 2005. Their marriage was been beautiful in the beginning, with both living a comfortable life thanks to both of their assets. Athina Onassis, alone, is worth $1.5 billion as of this year. Later on, however, things soured for the couple and they decided to part ways—settling the matter in court with a lawyer representing each. The process was not easy, we’re certain, but they eventually reached a settlement that favored both of their requests.
Anne Wojcicki & Sergey Brin
Thriving in the tech industry, Anne Wojcicki does have a lot to offer. In May 2007, Anne Wojcicki and Sergey Brin became one of Silicon Valley’s most influential married couples. The 23andMe founder Wojcicki and Google co-founder Brin have two children together. Their daughter, Chloe Wojin, and son, Beji Wojin. By 2013, their relationship started to crumble as Wojcicki. The two eventually decided to live separately before deciding on parting ways.
Despite this, there’s no doubt that their children will be well taken care of. These kids will never have to worry about student loans in the future! Aside from their mother’s personal assets, their father also has a net worth of $52.5 billion. Aside from having a huge net worth, she was also listed in Forbes’ World’s 100 Most Powerful Women, where she was #93 on the list. Seem like Girl Power runs in the family, as her sister Susan Wojcicki is the CEO of YouTube. While Janet Wojcicki is a Ph.D. anthropologist and epidemiologist.
Jerry Hall & Rupert Murdoch
American Model and Actress, Jerry Hall, started her career back in the ’80s. Aside from modeling, she also worked on film projects such as Tim Burton’s Batman and Urban Cowboy. She eventually tied the knot with Mick Jagger, but their relationship didn’t work.
Things may have been rough, but she did give love another try. When it comes to marriage, especially high profile ones, there will always be people who will talk. The naysayers and rumor mongers can make or break a blossoming relationship. Fortunately for model Jerry Hall and global billionaire Rupert Murdoch, they were much stronger than all the gossip. They openly showed their affection and love for each other in public showing how much they love and care for each other. The 25-year age gap didn’t even seem to exist between the two of them! To their credit, they chose to enjoy life and are happier for it. We’re sure their children and friends are all rooting for this amazing couple!
Andrea Casiraghi & Tatiana Santo Domingo
Andrea Casiraghi’s relationship with Tatiana Santo Domingo started in 2005. In 2012, Princess Caroline, his mother, announced the couple’s engagement to the public. They were often spotted celebrating many occasions together, including Prince Albert II and Charlene Wittstock’s wedding. The couple now has a happy family with three children, Alexandre Andrea Stefano the eldest and the first son, their first daughter India, and Max Rainier the youngest of the three.
Like his uncle’s family, the couple also ensures their children’s safety by making investments in proper security. With Tatiana Casiraghi’s net worth of $1.3 billion, doing so would be easy to accomplish. For sure, the couple has already covered the basics for the future of their children. They are certainly also showered with everything that they could ever ask for. They would be able to join the entertainment world without a worry if they wanted to follow in their father’s footsteps as well. It’s the best of both worlds for them.
Kate Capshaw & Steven Spielberg
Landing a role in Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom was such a fortunate experience for actress Kate Capshaw because of two things: it was a blockbuster and being in the film allowed her to meet her soulmate. Who you might ask? Not the lead actor, but the film’s director, Steven Spielberg. This might seem like your typical Hollywood romance, but contrary to the stereotype, these two have withstood the test of time.
We have to give them credit for their three decades of togetherness. That’s something that not even Steven Spielberg’s net worth of $3.7 billion can buy. Decades of being together in the jungle that is Hollywood is something that is definitely impressive, because not a lot of couples can stay together while they are public figures. Capshaw and Spielberg obviously have something special. We’re happy that they found, support, and comfort in each other as they both embarked on their separate careers.
Melanie Craft & Larry Ellison
After dating for eight years, Melanie Craft and Larry Ellison got married in December 2003 at his Woodside Estate. Craft always wanted to be a writer, but her relationship with Ellison led to her put this passion for writing on hold. The couple decided to part ways in 2010, but Craft did not leave their home and marriage empty-handed. She received a number of properties from Ellison, including mansions, cars, and yachts, as well as alimony.
Since then, she has authored and published three books to her credit. Meanwhile, Larry Ellison continues to add to his net worth of $70 billion. The marriage that they had might not have been the best for both of them but they both grew from the relationship. Rather than just Ellison doing all the work, Craft was able to really pursue her passion and gain a lot when they split. We hope they’re both doing better today.
Kaley Cuoco & Karl Cook
Before meeting her current equestrian husband, Kaley thought she would never find love again. This isn’t uncommon for women who have gone through a separation. When Karl Cook came into her life, however, it helped rekindle the flame in her heart. The two have plenty of things in common, including being horse lovers. He married an actress, but Cook has an established career of his own.
He has four Grand Prix honors to his credit, after all. He finally proposed to her in 2017 and the two have been enjoying married life since. With all the comfort provided by Cuoco’s assets and Cook’s net worth of $120 million, the pair have been living a dreamy life together. They should both really enjoy riding together as the sport must really fuel their love for each other. Making a regular habit out of spending quality time with each other through a shared interest is good for any relationship.
Diane von Furstenberg & Barry Diller
Before the couple got married in 2001, dress designer Diane von Furstenberg and Barry Diller had a rocky relationship. There were even reports of her leaving him for another man at certain points. Despite this, Diller was always there for her and this helped create a sturdier flooring for their future together. Throughout their relationship, the two have been known to go out of their way to give each other presents.
Including the 26 diamond wedding bands, Diller gave her on their wedding day to symbolize the 26 years they weren’t married. An easy purchase considering Diller has a net worth of $4.2 Billion. Despite all the rumors going around about them — considering the pair is a very famous one — they both still found ways to make their personal lives better and their relationship with each other stronger. Behind the lavish gift-giving, the couple’s efforts in maintaining their relationship with each other shines through.
Amanda Coetzer & Arnon Milchan
Amanda Coetzer is a former tennis player who played the sport for 16 years – from 1988 to 2004 – before putting down the racket to pursue other things in life. Eventually, she met and married Arnon Milchan, founder of New Regency Productions. The couple has four children, including the two that Milchan had from his previous partners.
Among these children is Alexandra Milchan who, just like her father, went on to become a film producer. Some of the movies she has to her credit include Street Kings and The Silence. With his film production business, Arnon Milchan has earned a net worth of $4.1 billion. Now that the two are married, some of his assets have surely been shared with Coetzer, making her richer than she was as an athlete. She must really live big along with her family. Her children might even follow in her footsteps and become professional tennis players as well.
Meghan Markle & Prince Harry
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry met back in 2016. Romantics would say that the two were in the right place at the right time. She was in Toronto, where Suits was being filmed, while Prince Harry was in the city to launch the 2017 Invictus Games. A mutual friend of theirs, the fashion designer Misha Nonoo, introduced the former Deal or No Deal model to meet with the Prince. This encounter between the two became the very gas that helped set their love ablaze.
They got married in 2018 and had their son Archie in 2019. Though no longer an official royal, Prince Harry’s net worth is at $50 million. Of course, even if he and Markle made the decision to leave the royal family, he is still known to the world as the former prince. Their cultural differences might have had influenced each other in their relationship hence the big news. Even then, they still have a high profile life despite that they are now away from their former duties.
Jessica Chastain & Gian Luca Passi de Preposulo
Before Jessica Chastain and Gian Luca Passi de Preposulo got married in 2017, the two had been in a relationship for five years. With a bond as loving and pure as theirs, it is almost a guarantee that they will go a long way together. The Passi de Preposulo might seem unique, but it comes with a strong history dating back to 1973.
Passi de Preposulo is an Italian noble family and they originated from Bergamo in Lombardy. “Passi” is derived from the local word “pas”, which means peace. This couple can afford all the peace and quiet they need given Gian Luca’s net worth is $10 Million. They can even venture out into the coolest and the most luxurious secluded spots in the world. They won’t ever have to think about how much money they need to spend as long as they are having the time of their lives.
Reese Witherspoon & Jim Toth
Reese Witherspoon met her now-husband at a party in 2010, where a drunk man started making unwanted advances towards her. Luckily, Jim Toth came to her aid and also apologized to the actress for his friend’s inappropriate behavior. After a year of dating, the two got married. They have one son, Tennessee James, who was raised alongside Reese’s two older kids, Ava and Deacon.
At present, both have stable careers and often give others credit when it comes to raising their children. With Toth’s net worth at $5 million, they wouldn’t have to worry about student loans in the future. Their children would also have a bright path ahead of them. Both being active in their own careers, the pair must really enjoy their quality time together and have a great family life as well. There has been nothing but good coming from their home, so they really are an inspiring clan.
George Clooney & Amal Alamuddin
“Where do I want to meet the love of my life?” For George Clooney, he certainly wasn’t expecting it’d be so close to home—his living room, in fact. This is where he met human rights attorney, Amal Alamuddin. The two met through a mutual friend and their initial meeting ended with the two of them exchanging email addresses to stay in touch. As they communicated more, their relationship started to blossom.
By 2014, the pair got married. In 2017, Alamuddin gave birth to twins, Ella and Alexander. She may not appear in films like Clooney does, but Alamuddin’s net worth of $20 million doesn’t fall far behind. Though the two come from very different worlds, they have managed to find something in each other that made them both happy. Their differences most probably complement each other as they always look very blissful whenever cameras catch a glimpse of them.
Eve Jihan Jeffers Cooper & Maximillion Cooper
How do you know that you have found the right one? For rapper and actress Eve, it was the moment when British entrepreneur Maximillion Cooper saw her while she was getting her hair done. Eve considers this a “vulnerable state” and she wasn’t too pleased. However, the gentlemanly Cooper assured Eve that no matter what hairstyle she wears – even if it was her natural hairdo – he would still love her.
All credit goes to him because this honesty became the fuel for their relationship. In 2014, the two finally tied the knot and became husband and wife. Maximillion Cooper’s net worth might be $55 million, but it’s his heart of gold that’s most precious. He must have really won her over not only through his charm but also through his chivalrous ways. He respects her and all that she is, so we think they they are really meant to be.
Kym Johnson & Robert Herjavec
When the ballroom dancer Kym Johnson and self-made millionaire Robert Herjavec competed in a dancing competition, they won something more valuable than a trophy: each other. Known for his lucrative investments and co-hosting for the show Shark Tank, Herjavec went and showed off his dancing chops on Dancing with the Stars back in 2015. It was this that led to the chance encounter between him and Kym Johnson during the rehearsals.
By 2016, the two made it official and got married. Together, they are parents to Haven Mae and Hudson Robert. With Robert Herjavec’s net worth of $200 million, we’re sure this family is well taken care of. They must have all their basic needs covered, and have a lot of extras on top. Their future must also be very bright given that whatever they might want will be easy for them to acquire. It must be a great experience being in their well-to-do and talented family!
Cindy Crawford & Rande Gerber
From best friends to lovers—this is how it began for supermodel Cindy Crawford and Rande Gerber. Since the two of them met in 1998, they have stayed together for over two decades. When asked about the secret to maintaining stability in their relationship, both credit their bond as friends, which they shared since the day they first met. Many years have passed, but they only seem to be getting stronger and stronger.
They have two children together, Presley and Kaia. Rande Gerber’s net worth is $350 million, but he won’t have to worry about his kids since they also earn plenty on their own. Just like their parents, they made sure that they would be financially stable and independent as well. They have their own personal ventures and their parents are always there to support them when they need it. They can even ask for their parents’ help should the need to do so arises.
George Lucas & Mellody Hobson
George Lucas is the creative genius behind the Star Wars and Indiana Jones franchises. But filmmaking isn’t his only love. He met his soulmate in Mellody Hobson, who is just as prolific as Lucas. She started out as an intern in Ariel Investments and worked her way up. She is the former chairwoman of Dreamworks. They began dating in 2006 and credit their open-minded way of living for strengthening their bond.
In 2013, they got married and eventually started a family of their own. Not too long after, they welcomed their daughter, Everest Hobson. Lucas is one of the world’s richest men, but Hobson’s net worth of $10 million isn’t too shabby in comparison! With the two of them working together, they will definitely not only make a great team but will also be very productive and efficient when it comes to generating income. Lucky for their children, they might not have to work a single day in their lives!
IVANKA TRUMP & JARED KUSHNER
Ivanka and her husband, Jared Kushner, are known for being incredibly rich. Both from influential New York City real-estate dynasties, Kushner and Trump had had impressive homes and habits, in addition to their high-end property holdings and a $25 million art collection. Not to mention Ivanka’s many expensive dresses, some of which will take your breath away with their price tags. Ivanka and Jared live a luxurious lifestyle, with a total net worth of $800 million.
Of course, with that massive income, you probably have some pretty good income sources, which Ivanka and Jared do. Ivanka and Jared have amassed a multi-billion dollar fortune in several sectors, including property investment, luxury, the stock market, publishing, and show business. The political power duo has been wealthy their entire lives and will most likely be able to pass on their fortune to their three children, much as their parents did for them.
NATALIA VODIANOVA & ANTOINE ARNAULT
Russian model Natalia Vodianova became known for her rags to riches story. Once a poor girl selling vegetables at a stall in Gorky, she is now one of the world’s highest-paid models. Since then, she’s had enormous success, whether as a runway, editorial, or commercial campaign model. Vodianova has featured in over 175 runway shows around the United States and Europe and numerous editorial covers in fashion magazines for luxury brands such as Givenchy, Louis Vuitton, and Chanel.
Natalia seems to be building quite an empire after she married the prince of luxury, Antoine Arnault. Antoine is the son of the world’s third-richest man, Bernard Arnault. Currently, he is the chairman of Loro Piana, the CEO of Berluti, and the head of communications and image at LVMH. He is one of two heirs presumptive to the LVMH empire. With their combined net worth and investments, their two kids indeed have a bright future ahead of them.
JERRY HALL & RUPERT MURDOCH
Rupert Murdoch acquired a chain of Australian newspapers and amassed a portfolio worth more than $50 million. Fifteen years after taking over the family company and making a series of investments, Rupert became one of the most influential media figures. He diversified his business activities from broadcast television to newspapers and book publishing for more than six decades, ultimately creating a global media empire that includes Fox News, The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, and other networks and publications.
On the other hand, his wife, Jerry Hall, is undeniably just as successful. She was the face of Revlon Cosmetics and Yves Saint Laurent’s Opium perfume. Jerry also graced the covers of magazines, including Elle and Vogue magazines, and walked the runway for Chanel and Christian Dior brands. Even though her assets are substantial, they pale compared to the Murdoch family’s estimated $20 billion in cash.
KIM KARDASHIAN & KANYE WEST
“Kimye” was undeniably one of the most influential couples in the world, capturing everyone’s attention with their fame and fortune. Since starting her career, Kim has joined the World’s Billionaires list, with a net worth of $1 billion. She credits two profitable businesses—KKW Beauty and Skims—and cash from reality television, sponsorship deals, and a host of smaller investments.
Fans are also curious as to whether Kim earns more than Kanye. Kanye is a billionaire with a net worth of $1.3 billion which means Kim earns around $300,000 less than him. Kim and Kanye also have their businesses, which have garnered them a lot of attention and made them a lot of money. On paper, Kanye is wealthier, but Yeezy’s popularity is determined by changing fashion trends while Kim’s brand KKW Beauty is timeless. With a combined wealth worth billions, they have indeed secured the best for their kids.
OPRAH WINFREY & STEDMAN GRAHAM
When we think about wealthy celebrities, Oprah Winfrey’s name will undeniably come to mind, and with good reason. Her net worth is estimated to be in the billions, thanks to her successful talk show that lasted 25 years. Oprah continues to pursue business ideas, invest in them, and create helpful content for various platforms. She has been a host in our living rooms for 25 years, and she seems to be reaping the rewards with her multibillion-dollar media empire.
Oprah is known to be dating Stedman Graham for more than three decades. Stedman has worn many hats throughout his long and illustrious career, and he has worn them all well. In addition to being a prosperous businessman and author, Graham is also involved in social and non-profit endeavors that positively impact people’s lives. While Oprah’s wealth is precious, her investments combined with her partner are an economic force to be reckoned with.
BEYONCE KNOWLES & JAY-Z
The fact that Beyonce and Jay-Z are incredibly wealthy is not news to any of us. Rich in the sense that “I swim around pools of cash.” Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s bank accounts are worth more than a billion. That, again, shouldn’t come as a surprise given that Beyoncé is one of the most decorated performers in the music scene, and Jay’s illustrious music and investments span decades and spread across different profitable sectors.
Both superstars have amassed their fortunes in unique ways. Beyoncé can sell more albums and attract more significant audiences on her own than her husband. When it comes to single sales, Beyoncé is the big winner, having made $26 million in digital singles, while her husband has made $17.5 million. Meanwhile, Jay-Z built his empire by forming his businesses or acquiring the assets of others. With their impressive billion worth, their children will surely grow up comfortable.
TIGER WOODS & ERICA HERMAN
Tiger Woods needs no introduction, but if you’re curious about his salaries, winnings, and sponsorship deals, he earns about $50-60 million a year. He is arguably the highest-paid golfer of all time. Outside the sports scene, he also diversified his wealth into business ventures like The Tiger Woods Learning Lab and The Woods Jupiter. Overall, Woods has become one of the sports’ most convincing comeback tales. His sizable bankroll and strategic investments will undoubtedly set him up for life after he retires from the sport he adores.
His relationship with Erica Herman became public after they met together for the first time at the 2017 Presidents’ Cup. Herman is said to be a former restaurant manager of The Woods Jupiter. While Erica had to work several jobs to make ends meet, Woods made his fortune from endorsements, golf course design work, and personal appearances. Her income may not equate to Woods’ $800 million fortune, but we’re sure the golfer doesn’t mind.
TOM BRADY & GISELE BUNDCHEN
Tom Brady has cemented himself as the greatest quarterback in the history of the NFL throughout an illustrious career that has spanned over two decades. Tom is good both on and off the field, and he has a happy family life. Like Tom, his wife, Gisele Bündchen, also has a long list of impressive professional accomplishments, making their combined wealth exponentially higher.

The duo of Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon became one of the biggest it couples of Hollywood. Mariah is, of course, best known as an American singer. Other than that, she is also a songwriter, record producer, and actress. She is definitely one of the most prominent names in the industry. That’s why it doesn’t come as a surprise that she has a net worth of $320 million dollars.
A sum that some of us could only wish. Cannon, on the other hand, is an American actor and television host. He has made a name for himself as well. He has been in the industry for more than two decades, and he has racked up recognitions in those years. Currently, he has a net worth of $30 million and a salary of $5 million. I think we could all agree that money loans are the least of their worries.
AMAL ALAMUDDIN & GEORGE CLOONEY
The team of George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin are definitely a power couple but on a completely different level. Alamuddin is a British lawyer who has been in some of the biggest and most talked-about cases. Clooney, on the other hand, is not only a prominent but also a powerful man in the industry.
The two met in 2013, and you can say that destiny worked in their favor. The two could have not met; Alamuddin and Clooney could have completely missed each other. The couple just met through a mutual friend. Their meeting took place at the actor’s Lake Como when their friend stopped by while en route to Cannes. It could have been just that, but fate had better plans. Alamuddin was also there! Truly, the rest is history from there. The two got married in 2014, and now they have two lovely children!

Tyler Perry is an American actor, director, producer, and screenwriter who was listed by Forbes as one of the highest paid man in the entertainment business back in 2011, earning over $130 million between May 2010 and May 2011. He and his partner, Ethiopian model, social activist and documentary film maker Gelila Bekele, met way back at 2009 and welcomed their only son at 2014.
Despite more than a decade of romance, the model has never referred to him as her husband. By December 2020, the couple had officially broken up with Perry confirming it on his IG post with a mirror selfie that captioned: ‘a man having a mid-life crisis’. The split was quite the shocking news to the fans and media, but the two seem happier apart. Bekele continues to raise their son and is on good terms with her previous lover.
JAMES PATTERSON & SUSAN PATTERSON

Suzy Amis first worked as a Ford model before she began acting in the 1990’s. She made her debut in the 1985 comedy film Fandango and has been progressing more into the limelight ever since. James Cameron is a Canadian film director, producer and screenwriter who was born in Kapuskasing Ontario, Canada. He has written and directed films as disparate as Alien and Titanic.

His films have collectively grossed over $1.1 billion domestically. As a result, the couple has a combined net worth of $705 million, some of which stems from their business investments.
JERRY SEINFELD & JESSICA SEINFELD
Jerry Seinfeld is a lot of things: a world-famous stand-up comedian, former star of the popular sitcom Seinfeld, film producer and creator of the Netflix series Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee. Aside from his diverse, successful career, the comedian is also a loving husband to his wife Jessica. The couple first met at Reebok Gym in New York City on August 7, 1998, back when Jessica was a Tommy Hilfiger publicist and was still married to her first husband. However, their relationship was not doing well so Jessica ended the relationship. Since then, she has found her forever in Jerry.
They secretly tied the knot in New York City on December 25, 1999. Fast forward to 2020, the couple now has three kids and remains happily married. They enjoy dabbing in real estate and own several impressive properties across the country. With the kind of wealth they have, mortgages must be the last thing on their minds!
YOLANDA FOSTER & DAVID FOSTER
David Foster is a Grammy-winning music producer and former model with a net worth of $150 million, while Yolanda is a former Ford Models who worked for 15 years in the industry, garnering an estimated net worth of $45 million. The couple got married back in 2011 after dating for four years. They had quite the Brady Bunch-esque family. Through her first husband Mohamed Hadid, Yolanda is a mom to high-fashion models Gigi, Bella, and Anwar, while David has six kids of his own.
Their union, however, was short-lived. After four years of marriage, the couple announced that they had parted ways. It was quite the shell-shocking news to the fans and media who saw their undeniable chemistry on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Despite the way things ended, there was no nasty battle between their lawyers and the two separated amicably.
AMBER ROSE & WIZ KHALIFA
American model, television personality, and actress Amber Rose began dating the rapper Wiz Khalifa back in 2011. The couple got engaged on March 1, 2012, and married on July 8, 2013. They have a son, Sebastian Taylor, who is now 7 years old. In September 2014, Rose filed for separation from Khalifa, citing irreconcilable differences and initially planning on getting sole custody of their child. To their credit, the two remain on good terms. They have joint custody over Sebastian and are successfully co-parenting their little boy.
The couple had an estimated net worth of $57 million, with Rose raking over $12 million from being one of the most colorful personalities in the industry and Khalifa belonging to the list of top 50 richest rappers in the world. They have since moved on to other partners and seem happier as friends.
TOM SELLECK & JILLIE MACK
Who would have thought that Tom Selleck’s love for the musical Cats would lead him to the love of his life? As he repeatedly told his pal Jane Seymour how good the show was, little did the actress know that he was referring to one of the cast members, Jillie Mack, who played the role of Rumpleteazer.
The two went to have a dinner date together, and from here, the rest was history. Selleck and Mack brought their romance to another level when the latter moved to Hawaii, where the actor filmed Magnum, P.I. The couple was often seen together, walking the flooring of every red-carpet event together. In 1987, they surprised everyone when they secretly tied the knot, thanks to the help of Selleck’s brother, Bob, for arranging everything and giving them the aliases Tom Jenkins and Suzie Mark so that no one would know.
MICHAEL STRAHAN & KAYLA QUICK
Michael Strahan has been keeping his romantic life out of the spotlight after getting the help of his lawyers twice for a couple of legal separations. Nobody knows if the former footballer has a new girlfriend, but there are rumors he is dating a woman named Kayla Quick. The two have been reportedly together since 2015, and by the looks of it, they are enjoying each other’s company.
Anyhow, as Strahan and Quick have been keeping their romance really private, no one knows if they are still together and already broke up. Many believe the couple is still dating, though they have not been in the headlines for years. The last time Strahan and Quick were seen together was in 2018 when they went for a romantic dinner together on New York’s Upper East Side. The same thing happened in 2015 in West Hollywood, Los Angeles.
JOEL OSTEEN & VICTORIA OSTEEN
Victoria Osteen met her then-future husband, Joel Osteen when she was working at her mother’s jewelry shop and working on her degree at the University of Houston. At the time, Joel visited the shop to replace the battery of his watch. Just two years after they met, they got married in 1987.
In an interview, Victoria revealed they were not yet pastors, but only two young people. They had grown together and learned everything from each other. They also learned how to people, describing their marriage as a beautiful place to be. Amid their strong love for each other, there have been rumors that Joel and Victoria have split up. Of course, there is no truth about it, and they remain deeply in love even after more than 30 years of marriage. Joel and Victoria are now parents to two kids, Alexandra and Jonathan.
JAY LENO & MAVIS LENO
Jay Leno may be fond of cars, but his greatest love is his wife of 41 years, Mavis. In an interview, the famed TV host said people should marry the person they wished they could have been. Talking about the secret to a lengthy marriage, Jay said it was realizing there was nothing worth fighting about, and this might be the mantra he was following with Mavis.
The couple first met at The Comedy Store in Los Angeles in 1976. After just four years, they exchanged the sweetest “I do’s”. Jay revealed that their decision to get married did not have a romantic reason at all. He did not even get Mavis an engagement ring when he asked for her hand for marriage. They got married because of Jay’s insurance policy, and he wanted her to be his dependent when something happened to him.
KIRSTEN VANGSNESS & KEITH HANSON
Kirsten Vangsness has been in a lengthy relationship with Keith Hanson. The couple has been engaged since 2015, and though six years have passed, the two are not rushing things. The Criminal Minds star saw Hanson as the perfect partner. They have both evolved over the years, and the best part of their relationship is that they evolved together.
It may be the reason why Vangsness never gets excited about marriage. To her, there are other more important things than tying the knot. She, too, is not interested in having kids after her experience as a substitute teacher exposed her to the demands of being a parent. Vangsness chose not to be affected by the societal pressure to have kids, following her own terms when it comes to building her own family. Though the time may come that Vangsness cannot get pregnant anymore, she can work with her attorney to adopt.
DOLLY PARTON & CARL THOMAS DEAN
Dolly Parton and Carl Thomas Dean’s relationship is a love like no other. The two have been together for more than five decades and walked down the aisle in 1966. They like to keep things private to an incredible degree. In fact, there is rarely a moment that they have been photographed together or even interviewed.
Dean’s non-public appearance gives birth to theories that he does not exist, and Parton does not have a husband at all. In an interview with the music icon, she revealed her husband is not interested in being in the spotlight. Dean is a quiet and reserved person. He knows that the moment he enters the limelight, there will never be a minute of peace in his life anymore. With that, their relationship’s privacy may be the biggest secret to their long-lasting romance, making their bond much stronger than other couples in Hollywood.
ROBERT REDFORD & SIBYLLE SZAGGARS
Robert Redford gives all credits to his wife, Sibylle Szaggars, for changing his life. For her, a 64-year-old painter is an extraordinary person. Despite their huge age gap—Redford is 84 while Szaggars is 64—it is not a big issue between them at all. The actor likes that his wife is European, giving him a breath of fresh air and a whole new life.
Redford and Szaggars have been married for 12 years, tying the knot in 2009. Though it is relatively new for some, it is already a milestone in Hollywood. The director has been married twice in his life and has four kids: James, Amy, Scott Anthony, and Shauna. Though he has experienced a legal separation once, it looks like it will never happen this time. With the love that Redford has for Szaggars, these two may stay together forever.
TUCKER CARLSON & SUSAN ANDREWS
Tucker Carlson and Susan Andrews have almost known each other all their lives. They first met when they were only 15 years old during the first week of their 10th grade. Carlson saw Andrews as the most beautiful 10th grader in the US at the time. Of course, his wife felt the same. To some degree, she found his walk bouncing while he was wearing khaki pants and a ribbon belt.
As their relationship progressed, Carlson asked for Andrews’ hand for marriage from his father. At the time, he was still working on his degree at Trinity College and maintaining a long-distance relationship with his then-girlfriend. Six months before he graduated, he finally worked up enough courage to marry Andrews. Though his proposal was very 19th-century like, Carlson said it was the best thing to do, and it was the truest thing. The couple tied the knot in 1991, and they have been together for more than 30 years.
CHRIS CUOMO & CRISTINA GREEVEN CUOMO
Chris Cuomo exchanged vows with the beautiful Cristina Greeven Cuomo in 2001. They held their romantic ceremony in Southampton, Long Island. She was late for more than half an hour, and he already thought that she would never show up. Everyone was tense as Chris waited for Cristina.
The journalist revealed that, if she hadn’t shown up, at least he would have had a great story to tell. When the time the then-bride arrived, everybody saw they were a match made in heaven. Chris and Cristina are both “bright, sincere, and intelligent people.” As their married life progressed, the couple has been blessed with three kids: Bella, Carolina Regina, and Mario. Chris is busy working as the host of Cuomo Prime Time, while Cristina has made an investment to have her own publication called Purist. Though they work in different fields, it cannot be denied that the couple is growing together.
Priscilla Chan & Mark Zuckerberg
If there’s one “It” couple in the tech industry right, it would be no other than Priscilla Chan and Mark Zuckerberg. The dynamic pair crossed paths back in 2003 when they were both pursuing their degrees at Harvard University. According to the couple, they met while both of them were queuing in line to the bathroom. As you’d expect, they started talking and never really got of each other’s back since then. Soon after the couple started dating, Zuckerberg’s brainchild, Facebook, began gaining momentum in the internet sphere.
Upon realizing its potential, the Harvard University undergrad decided to drop out of college and pursue the website full-time. Chan was incredibly supportive and even instrumental to the growth of Zuckerberg’s innovation. The couple dated for a couple more years and got married in 2012. Since then, they have welcomed two children: Maxima, born in 2015, and August, born in 2017.
Laurene Powell & Widow Of Steve Jobs
As crazy as this may seem, but when Laurene Powell first met Steve Jobs, she mistakenly took him for the Microsoft founder Bill Gates. However, you got to keep in mind that this happened back in 1989 when Apple had nowhere near the amount of success they’re experiencing today. Fortunately, this did not faze the would-be Apple CEO. Shortly after meeting, the two began a romantic relationship.
Then in 1990, Jobs finally mustered up enough courage and asked Powell to marry him. The couple wed in an intimated wedding attended by only 50 people in 1991. At the time of their marriage, Powell was already carrying their eldest child, Reed. As Jobs’ company and investments grew, so did their family. They welcomed two more children and remained married until Jobs’ passing in 2011. Nowadays, Powell is in charge of manning Emerson Collective, a philanthropic organization focused on education and environmental preservation.
Andrea Danenza Hissom & Steve Wynn
If you’re not familiar with the American real estate market, then you probably have no idea who Steve Wynn is. However, you might have heard of his little hotel business, which includes The Mirage, Treasure Island, and The Bellagio Las Vegas. Yep, that’s right! Wynn is the man behind all those luxury developments we often see on paper and on TV.
Though he has been pretty successful in the realm of business, his romantic life is a slightly different story. He’s only been married twice, but his first marriage was very turbulent. The businessman art collector was first married to Elaine Farrell Pascal. Lawyers dissolved their marriage in 1986, but the two remarried in 1991. After 19 years of being husband and wife, the two finally decided to end their relationship for good in 2010. The following year, Wynn found love again and married Andrea Danenza Hissom. The couple remains happily married to this day.
Marta Fascina & Silvio Berlusconi
When it comes to high-profile couples, age is certainly not a number. This is especially true for Marta Fascina and Silvio Berlusconi. The Italian political couple has a staggering 54-year age gap between them. Silvio Berlusconi is an Italian politician who served as Italy’s Prime Minister from 1994 to 1995, 2001 to 2006, and then from 2008 to 2011. The 85-year-old politician began his political race back in 1994.
Before that, he was known as a prominent media mogul with several investments in the entertainment field. Although the former entrepreneur succeeded in winning the political race, his term was rocked with several controversies. However, with the help of his team, he managed to surpass every single one. Since entering politics in 1994, Berlusconi has enjoyed a long career in the Italian government. On the other hand, Marta Fascina is a politician who’s been serving the Chamber of Deputies since 2018. The two reportedly began dating in 2020 but have kept much of their relationship private.
Lucinda Southworth & Larry Page
We have another high-profile tech couple on this list. If Priscilla Chan and Larry Page are to Facebook, Lucinda Southworth and Larry Page are to Google. Page is a computer scientist who co-founded the internet giant company Google with Sergey Brin. While pursuing his undergraduate degree, he went to the University of Michigan and Stanford University for his master’s.
Together with Brin, Page began developing a web crawler on a garage at Menlo Park. Then in 2011, 13 years after the initial founding of Google, he officially assumed the position of CEO, which he served until 2019. Meanwhile, his other half, Lucinda Southworth, is a scientist and researcher. The couple began dating in 2006 and got married a year after. Like most high-profile couples in their field, Southworth and Page also like to keep their lives lowkey. The couple frequents formal and charity events but keeps much of their private affairs away from the public eye.
Susan Andrews & Tucker Carlson
American political commentator Tucker Carlson and his wife Susan Andrews have been through the highest highs and lowest lows throughout their 30-year marriage. Carlson is widely known in the United States for hosting The Tucker Carlson Show on Fox News. Before that, he worked with various other media networks, including CNN, PBS, and MSNBC. Besides his career on television, Carlson also busies himself with writing.
So far, the political commentator has authored three books, with one of them being his memoir. As a political commentator and analyst, Carlson has also participated in a couple of election campaigns, including former US President Donald Trump. However, his conservative and often controversial view on things has landed him in hot waters a couple of times. Fortunately, he has his wife Susan Andrews beside him. The two met when they were still students and got married in 1991. Given their career and fortune, it’s safe to say that their three children will never have to worry about paying off student loans.
Elizabeth Malia Andelin & Sumber Redstone
Most girls could only dream of a Cinderella-like love story, but Elizabeth Malia Andelin struck gold when she met Sumber Redstone on a flight she was manning as a flight attendant.
Redstone was an American billionaire and media tycoon responsible for founding Viacom. After increasing his wealth and influence, he soon expanded his billion-dollar investment portfolio to include Paramount Pictures, CBS, and the National Amusements theater chain.
Aside from being a successful media mogul, Redstone was also an accomplished author, with one published book under his name. Outside of his work, he was also known for his colorful romantic life. He was married twice, first to Phyllis Raphael and then to Paula Fortunato. He later met Andelin while she was working for the billionaire’s private jet. While together, the flight attendant worked hand in hand with her partner’s philanthropic team. However, the former flight attendant retreated out of the spotlight following Redstone’s passing in 2020.
Donna Spangler & Dr. Richard Benveniste
Another multi-million-dollar couple on this list is Donna Spangler and Dr. Richard Benveniste. Spangler is an American actress best known for the films Pet Moms, American Poltergeist, and Beverly Hills Christmas. The actress was previously a model but made the transition into acting in 1987. Dr. Richard Benveniste, on the other hand, is a famous periodontist in the United States.
It’s unclear exactly how the two met, but one thing is for sure: they make an interesting couple. Like many couples in the spotlight, Spangler and Benveniste also share a wide age gap. 24 years, to be exact. Though known, the couple still prefers to maintain a certain degree of privacy. This probably explains why there is hardly any news about them on the internet. However, if you’re interested in getting some tidbits about the inner workings of their relationship, you might want to purchase Spangler’s book entitled How to Get a Rich Man: The Princess Formula.
Oleksandra Nikolayenko & Phil Ruffin
American businessman Phil Ruffin hit the jackpot when he found and fell in love with Ukrainian model Oleksandra Nikolayenko. Ruffin’s career as a businessman started in 1972 when he pioneered the establishment of the self-serving gasoline stations in Kansas. After gaining enough income from his gas station business, he decided to splurge his investment money in building his very first hotel.
That project later materialized in the form of a Marriott hotel in Wichita. In 1995, Ruffin grew his empire even more by purchasing the Crystal Palace in the Bahamas. From that point on, he continued to expand his hotel empire non-stop. However, when he’s not busy running his business, Ruffin is at home with Nikolayenko and his family. The entrepreneur has three children from his previous marriages and added two more through his marriage with Nikolayenko. Together, the couple participates in several charities and philanthropic events.
Melinda Gates & Bill Gates
When it comes to couples in the tech industry, no one can beat Microsoft’s Bill and Melinda Gates duo. For 27 years, the couple reigned over the technological industry as the poster couple of philanthropic works. Bill and Melinda first met in 1987, when the latter started working for Microsoft. After nearly 7 years of dating, the couple finally decided to get hitched in an intimate Hawaiian wedding on the island of Lanai.
Throughout their marriage, Bill and Melinda welcomed three children: Jennifer, Rory, and Phoebe. Aside from their children, Gates also became parents to one of the world’s biggest and most renowned charitable organizations, the Melinda and Bill Gates Foundation. The couple famously supports several charitable causes ranging from environmental preservation, education, and community welfare through their foundation. Unfortunately, the couple has recently decided to split, which slightly complicates the investments that they share.
Vanessa Bryant & Widow Of Vanessa Bryant
Out of all married couples in the NBA, Vanessa Bryant and the late Kobe Bryant have got to be one of the most famous. The two met in 1999 when the then-aspiring basketball star was 21 years old, and Vanessa was four years younger. Due to their age gap, the couple had to keep some degree of privacy to avoid widespread scrutiny. However, Kobe’s family was pretty vocal about their disapproval and even refused to attend his wedding in 2001.
Following his wedding to Vanessa, he avoided speaking to his family for two years. Everything only went back to normal when their first daughter, Natalia, was born in 2003. They welcomed three more daughters in the following years: Gigi, Bianka, and Capri. Like many others, the couple also experienced their fair share of hurdles, which resulted in the couple almost separating in 2011. However, no challenge was quite as heartbreaking as Kobe and Gigi’s passing in January 2020. Along with her remaining daughters, Vanessa now tries to keep her husband and her daughter’s legacy alive.
Looking at the gorgeous Sanaa Lathan, it is quite surprising to know that she is currently single. Over the years, it’s not like the actress hasn’t been linked to romantic relationships. According to an interview she did with USA Today, she is perfectly content with being single at the moment, and to a certain degree, even prefers it.
CelebCouples states that Lathan has been in over 10 relationships. She was even engaged to Steve Rifkind from 2010 to 2011. Although she is now in her 50s, she still prefers to keep her love life private. However, she has been famously linked to the likes of Omar Epps, Tyrese Gibson, French Montana, and Terrell Owens. Her romantic relationships might seem to come and go but the longest one that we know of was her relationship with Gibson, which lasted from 2008 until 2014. With her ageless beauty, it will never be too late for the Love and Basketball actress to find love if she ever chooses to do so.
Catherine Bell & Brooke Daniels
They say that following your heart will lead to a degree of true happiness. If the rumors are true, then Catherine Bell and Brooke Daniels are meant for one another. The unique circumstances that led to the start of their relationship may have been met with some controversy, but it just goes to show that they were meant for each other. The couple has been together since 2012, and live together on a 3,380-square-foot ranch in Hidden Hills, California.
The lesbian couple met at a museum where Daniels worked and began dating soon after. Even though they have yet to marry, it would seem that they are satisfied with where they are right now. They have been together for over a decade now, and although their love didn’t bear any children, they each had two children from their previous marriages. Hopefully, the two have truly found happiness, this time around.
Troy Aikman & Catherine Mooty
Some say that it is never too late to find true love. That may be the case for Troy Aikman and Catherine Mooty, who both went through a separation before finding each other and eventually getting married. As we know, Aikman is a former professional American football player, who is given credit for playing quarterback for 12 seasons for the Dallas Cowboys. He is a Super Bowl MVP with three Super Bowl titles under his belt.
The franchise might have brought fame and fortune to the 1989 first overall draft pick, but through it, he would also meet Mooty. According to reports, she met the former athlete in 2016, through her former husband, who is the nephew of Dallas Cowboys owner, Jerry Jones. The two began dating and would fall for each other, fast. Over a year later, they got married. Although they don’t have children together, both of them have two children from their previous marriages.
Gladys Knight & William McDowell
Gladys Knight and her husband William McDowell melted hearts when they tied the knot and showed off their solid relationship in public. The pair shows marital bliss, and the audience could not help but gush over them. Knight and McDowell walked down the aisle in 2001, about four years after the singer filed for separation from motivational speaker Les Brown. The new couple reportedly lives the good life in their North Carolina home.
With McDowell, the singer seems to have finally found her happily ever after. The two share a common ground in music, and they also enjoy making investments in the industry today. The Maybe Maybe Baby hitmaker is a seven-time Grammy Award recipient. At the same time, her husband received a nomination from a prestigious award-giving body for his third album, Withholding Nothing. Not only do the two have a deep love for each other, but they also share the same love for music.
John Denver & Annie Martell
John Denver was a singer-songwriter whose commercial success was prominent in the 1970s. After traveling in numerous locations while growing up, he started his music career with folk music groups in the late 1960s. Starting in the 1970s, he became one of Hollywood’s best-selling performers. As a matter of fact, he was named one of the most beloved entertainers of his era.
Denver was first married to Annie Martell, who was his inspiration on one of his songs titled Annie’s Song. The two first met in 1966 at a concert in Minnesota, and just a year later, they tied the knot. The pair then adopted two kids after struggling to conceive their own, and the family settled in Aspen, Colorado, after calling a moving company from Edina, Minnesota. Sadly, the duo’s relationship came to an end in the early 1980s, and the singer said that his career demands were the reason for their split.
Kathie Lee Gifford & Frank Gifford
Kathie Lee Gifford’s marriage to Frank Gifford was definitely one for the books. Although their decades-long love story was one filled with heartbreak, their union was nothing short of enduring love. The Giffords first began dating in the mid-1980s when they met on the set of a news show. From there, sparks and electricity flew between them and they immediately hit it off. The television presenter once told former co-host, Hoda Kotb, that she fell in love with her husband during their first moments together.
The happy couple was married in October 1986, and not long after, they became the doting parents to daughter Cassidy and son Cody. While the sports commentator was 23 years Kathie Lee’s senior, their age difference proved to be no issue as they shared almost 30 memorable years before his passing in August 2015. Until today, Kathie Lee still battles the “crippling” loneliness after losing Frank just months before their wedding anniversary.
Judge Judy Sheindlin & Jerry Sheindlin
Is it possible for two lawyers to fall in love? Well, despite the hectic schedules they have had, Judge Judy Sheindlin and fellow judge Jerry Sheindlin managed to weather the storms of marriage for 30 years. Anyone who’s caught a glimpse of Judge Judy in her TV courtroom would know she’s not the type to give up easily.
The pair met at a bar in the mid-1970s when Judy was a prosecutor and Jerry was working on a case. It seems their attraction was instant. Jerry recalled he was interviewed at the bar and when Judy came walking in, she caught his attention. On the other hand, the famous TV judge recalled feeling “so crazy” about her future husband and said that she would have married him two days after they met! The pair wed in 1977, briefly split in 1990, and rekindled their romance a year later.
Judge Greg Mathis & Linda Mathis
Greg Mathis has an incredible life story that inspires thousands of people. He was a young boy who dreamed of becoming a lawyer, promoting advocacy for urban youth and equal justice. He has become a national figure, but for his wife of more than 30 years, he is a soulmate and a devoted husband. Greg met his wife Linda at Eastern Michigan College. They exchanged wedding vows back in 1985 and welcomed four children together: daughters Camara and Jadea, and sons Amir and Greg Jr.
Throughout his career, Judge Mathis has been recognized for his diverse activities and well-rounded life experience. He wrote a number of books, and in one of them, he described his love for his wife. Linda, who runs non-profit daycare centers, has always stood by her husband’s side after all these years. Indeed, nothing is better than being married to your soulmate and best friend!
