01 Sep SUMMER DREAMS: CELEBRITY COUPLES OF 2018
All summer we’ve been regaled with romantic stories and happy beginnings. Some of our long standing favorites, some that only just won our hearts and some that quite frankly, should give us a break! All in all, it’s been a summer of healthy vibes, lots of PDA and we’ll be sad to see it end. Fortunately for most of these lovebirds, this does not seem to be that forgotten summer of heartbreaks or love gone sour- even Taylor Swift made the list! Hopefully, our cheery hearts will last till year’s end and all our conquests, both romantic and otherwise, will keep us smiling long after the autumn leaves have fallen.
Pop star Ariana Grande and SNL host Pete Davidson met back in 2016 when Ariana was invited to host SNL. The two hooked up after they respectively split with their exes. It’s been smooth sailing and they are literally the most talked about pair this summer. Heavy PDA, endless sexual jokes and mutual support, the inseparable pair have proceeded with an engagement with a wedding on the horizon. It’s been quite a successful month for Ariana with her album Sweetener topping the charts and her confidence and joy at peak levels. This is a much needed respite after the tragic events at her concert earlier this year.
African superstar Tuface and his African Queen Annie Idibia warm our hearts with their unfading romance spanning almost two decades. After a fairytale wedding, beautiful children and life’s challenges, these two have eyes only for each other and have gained the public’s unequivocal support. Their constant support of each other and cutesy Instagram photos are a sight for sore eyes.
Indian actress Priyanka Chopra says she’s “taken with all her heart and soul” and her beau, singer Nick Jonas is proud to be the lucky guy. This unusual couple have had us in swoons and their recent engagement bared so much intimacy and love. The daring pair do not portray the eleven-year gap in their ages and have won many hearts since their official declaration. If only Tiwa Savage and Wizkid were an actuality!
Media mogul Banky W and actress Adesua Etomi tied the knot and Nigeria is not yet over it. Amassing wide followership online since their unforgettable declaration of love on both their Instagram pages, these favorites can do no wrong.
Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin took the world by surprise with the announcement of their engagement. The twosome have apparently been on and off for a while now and have been everywhere together since. Coordinated outfits, amazing synchronization and significant changes in Justin tell us that the pair of them are not fooling around. Though wedding plans have slowed for the time being, this couple is one to watch.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle bring life to the perfect fairytale. This endearing couple have made the news every week since their engagement was announced and haven’t stopped being the objects of public interest because they are so adorable together. Their dreamy wedding in May has been imitated severally in so many aspects so much that their wedding attires will be put on public display at Windsor Castle. Meghan has settled into the life of a Duchess so admirably and her Prince is still as doting as ever! Now we know what happens after happily ever after and our hearts are bursting with excitement.
Award-winning musician Ed Sheeran and his sweetheart professional hockey player Cherry Seaborn announced their engagement in January and we didn’t really need to see the video for ‘Perfect’. Fueling rumors of their wedding recently, a ceremony or lack of one seems to make no difference to the lovebirds who have been friends since childhood.
Joe Jonas seems to take a cue from his brother and has gone ahead to propose to Game of Thrones actress Sophie Turner. This super cute and rather private duo shared the news on Instagram much to the delight of teeming fans.
Hollywood stars Zendaya and Tom Holland are a pair of goofballs. There have been no major announcements from their end except an interest to keep it private and simple. They were all over each other with a comfortable familiarity at the Marvel movie Spiderman: Homecoming tour which they both starred in but we really don’t have much to go by. We really hope there’ll be some news soon.
We are all familiar with Taylor Swift’s endless romantic adventures, after all she’s got Grammys and bestsellers to show for it. Her latest beau is a British actor, Joe Alwyn and he is all charm and looks. By now, we certainly know better than to hope for more because we are sure, as it always is with Taylor, that this latest romantic adventure will be a win-win. It will be a fairytale or a really great summer song and she’ll keep being Taylor.
