What's better than one rich, sexy, successful celebrity? Oh yeah, that's right: two. Celebrity power couples are a force to be reckoned with. Double the money and fame equals double the power and influence and we're here for it. Whether it's acting, singing, politics or sports fame, the couples that slay together stay together, and these couples are perfect examples of just that.
1. Beyonce and Jay Z
Please bow for the King and Queen. That's right, coming in strong with Queen B herself and her suitably royal husband Jay Z. Meeting back in 2000, the couple has had their fair share of high-profile drama. Beyonce's 2016 album Lemonade played out the scandal bare for all of us to see and at the same time strongly demonstrating her boss girl attitude. Since then however, the couple has gone from strength to strength and we have all been reassured that the power couple will continue to reign unbreakable. Sharing a daughter and a pair of twins, Beyonce and Jay Z remain A list royalty that any of us would be blessed to even be in the presence of.
2. William and Kate
Moving on to actual royalty (don't say we don't spoil you), we arrive at His Royal Highness Prince William and his beautiful wife Catherine Middleton. Kate got to live out the ultimate dream fantasy of so many women when she married William, heir to the British throne in a magical fairytale ceremony in 2011. Over 2 billion people watched the royal wedding live, and since then the couple has not stayed out of the spotlight. Known for being heavily involved in various charity ventures especially focussing on helping the environment, this couple is a force for good in the world. Starting their journey together meeting at university, they now share three beautiful children and will one day be King and Queen of Great Britain.
3. Michelle and Barack Obama
The previous President of the United States and First Lady, Barack and Michelle Obama shows us an example of black excellence that set relationship goals for all of us. Not only having been the most powerful couple in the world, but they also hold onto their political and social influence today. Their genuine care about the world leaves us all flawed, just as much as their care for each other. From their university snaps together, all the way through to Nobel Peace Prizes and demonstrating how to be perfect parents to two beautiful daughters, this couple leaves us in total adoration.
4. Posh and Becks
Now to the other British royal couple; we have the inimitable David and Victoria Beckham. The wedding of Becks and Posh Spice turned out to be an iconic pop-culture highlight of the 21st century. The hottest footballer with the hottest pop star around meant that people became as obsessed with the pair of them as they were with anything else, and their looks definitely helped this happen. The couple has now been together for over 16 years, sharing four gorgeous children, one of whom (Brooklyn) is even now engaged himself... another power couple incoming? It could be.
5. Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin
This couple is the youngest on the list, but that just makes gives them even more potential power. One of the world's hottest and most well-known popstars Justin Bieber married the model and daughter of actor Alec Baldwin, Hailey Baldwin. In terms of young, rich, and famous, this couple embodies it like nobody else. Having got married in 2018, since then they live together in LA, sharing a cute dog and sharing a beautiful young love that is definitely one to watch. We're excited to see where this power couple goes.
6. Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds
The last couple on our list are bonafide Instagram legends. We adore their relationship because more than any other celebrity couple, these guys keep it real. Constantly posting embarrassing photos of each other on their social media, or making fun of each other, we can tell that the love between them is real and not only for the camera. A pair of A-List Hollywood actors who came together, they have been together for ten years and now share three beautiful daughters. We love to see it.
Feeling slightly breathless after reading that list is understandable- that was a lot of beautiful and successful people all in one go. Luckily their love is real and gives us something to help us feel warm inside. When other things might not be going so well in the world, at least these guys' love is still going strong.
