Gwen and Blake Are Officially Dating, & Here Are 5 More Celeb Couples Who Met At Work
Yesterday, mere hours after I totally insisted that Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani are a couple, Gwen’s rep confirmed the news to multiple sources. (Wait, does this mean that Gwen reads Romper? Hi, Gwen! Congrats on the new — or is it? — relationship!) Although the rep told TMZ that the pair have only been together for “days,” that’s coincidentally how long we’ve had photographic evidence that really couldn’t be explained. Dating rumors have surrounded the now-confirmed couple since this past summer, when Shelton divorced his wife, Miranda Lambert, and Stefani divorced Rossdale a mere two weeks later.
This isn’t the first time that Gwen has found love while on the job, either. She met her ex-husband, Gavin Rossdale, when their bands (No Doubt and Bush, respectively) toured together in 1995. And before that, she dated the bassist for No Doubt, Tony Kanal. It can be hard to meet people when you're a superstar, and harder still when you're working all the time. So it's no surprise that plenty of celebs end up dipping their pen in the company ink, if you catch my drift. (Admittedly, not a hard drift to catch.) Take a look at some of the other famous couples who started out as colleagues before getting together:
Brad Pitt & Angelina Jolie Pitt
Brangelina famously met while filming their 2005 movie, Mr. and Mrs. Smith. Pitt was married to Jennifer Aniston at the time, causing the whole world to immediately declare themselves either Team Angie or Team Jen.
Will Forte & January Jones
If you blinked, you probably missed this relationship, but Forte and Jones dated for five months earlier this year. The two continue to star on Last Man on Earth together. Awkward!
Kaley Cuoco & Johnny Galecki
Cuoco and Galecki got together while starring on The Big Bang Theory, broke up, and now remain "the best of buds," according to Cuoco's recent Instagram.
Blake Lively & Ryan Reynolds
Mila Kunis & Ashton Kutcher
While Kunis and Kutcher met while on That 70's Show in 1998, they didn't hook up until 2012, well after the show went off the air. They're now married with one child.
