Normally when we report on celebrity couples it consists of either a pregnancy or a breakup/divorce, so I figured why not be positive and focus on new couples that got together this year and are still going strong. Here are 14 new celebrity couples that Zimbio remind us who’ve hooked up this year and have lasted so far.
Worlds collided when tween sensation Joe Jonas and Twilight star Ashley Greene coupled up this summer. They’ve been doing everything from grocery shopping to traveling together and always look so darn happy while holding hands in front of the cameras. Darling, isn’t it?
Jessica Simpson has had quite a year: She met, began dating, AND got engaged to ex-football star Eric Johnson in 2010. They began dating in about May, and he popped the question in early November, right after Jessica’s ex-husband Nick Lachey announced his engagement to Vanessa Minnillo. Love is all around!
Halle Berry and Olivier Martinez are probably the hottest co-star couple to come out of Hollywood this year. They got together in August after working together on Stranger Tides, just months after Halle and Gabriel Aubry announced their split.
We are so happy Rihanna found new love this year! She and Dodgers player Matt Kemp have been going strong since May and have traveled all over the world together over the last few months. “I smile for real this time,” she said in an interview. “The smiles come from inside, and it exudes in everything I do. People feel my energy is different. When I smile they can tell that it’s pure bliss and not just a cover up.”
Taylor Swift and Jake Gyllenhaal have the rumor mill in overdrive these days. They’ve reportedly spent many a romantic weekend together, though there’s been no official word from either camp. If it’s true, this is one hottest, most unexpected new couples of 2010!
Kate Hudson and Muse rocker Matt Bellamy have been together since May. These two have often been spotted out and about with Kate’s son Ryder and it seems like things are pretty serious. Apparently Matt even gets along with his girlfriend’s mom, Goldie Hawn!
It took FOREVER (ok, 5 months) for Ryan Seacrest and Julianne Hough to confess that they’re an item. The big news came in November, when she gushed all about her man in an interview. She said he’s a “phenomenal” boyfriend and he constantly leaves her flowers and little surprises, even when he’s not around. Definitely a keeper!
Avril Lavigne and Brody Jenner got way hot and heavy in 2010. Things between this couple (who haven’t even publicly admitted that they are a couple) got so intense that they got matching tattoos this year — more than once! Must be love.
Reese Witherspoon and Hollywood agent Jim Toth were first spotted together in February. They’ve never really spoken openly about their relationship, and they steer clear of the red carpet, but they’re often seen watching Reese’s kids on the soccer field. These two seem like a super down-to-earth, happy couple. We like it
Portuguese soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo was first linked to model Irina Shayk in May. The two have since kept mum about their relationship, but it’s pretty clear that they’re together. They’re one of the most beautiful couples around, no doubt.
Mad Men star January Jones and SNL cast member Jason Sudeikis got the dating rumors going at the ESPY Awards this summer. Apparently they were “making out” all over the place, and didn’t have a care in the world. Still no officially confirmation on these two, but we have to say they do make a pretty cute couple.
Parenthood co-stars Lauren Graham and Peter Krause started dating in April of this year. They’re not romantically involved on the show, she’s actually his sister! We’re sure they don’t dwell on that in their spare time.
Dianna Agron and Alex Pettyfer met on the set of their film I Am Number Four and reportedly began dating shortly after that. They’ve been spotted holding hands and looking mighty lovey-dovey, though they’ve kept mum on their relationship status.
Kirsten Dunst and Rilo Kiley drummer Jason Boesol started dating around the February mark. They make quite the cute indie kid couple.
I’m sure at least one of these will be over by the New Years Eve and the rest will probably be finished by Easter 2011.
