Valentine's Day 2023: Iconic celebrity couples we love – USA TODAY


Love is in the air this Valentine’s Day and some celebrity couples have a tight grip on it. 
Star pairings including George and Amal Clooney, The Rock and Lauren Hashian, as well as Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi, have put their long-lasting affection for one another on display throughout the years.
Some famous couples throw large romantic gestures like Russell Wilson, who often surprises his wife, Ciara, with flowers. Other stars are more subtle: Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson are often side-by-side on the red carpet
While Hollywood movies include a lot of happily-ever-afters, these are the off-camera love stories that make us feel like there’s someone for everyone.
Music’s it-couple is always there to make us swoon with their red carpet photos, music videos and baby announcements. 
The two first cos-played a relationship in Rocky’s 2013 “Fashion Killa” music video. Fast forward almost 10 years later and they are proud parents of a 9-month-old with another one on the way. 
Rocky’s reaction to Rihanna performing during the 2023 Super Bowl halftime show, where she revealed her second pregnancy, captured fans’ hearts. 
In the clip from the NFL, he put on his flashlight during her performance of “Diamonds” before bopping back in forth as he listened to his girlfriend’s music. The “Praise the Lord” rapper, threw his hands in the air and clapped towards the end of the video.

The Clooneys got married in 2014 during a wedding in Venice after George Clooney was long considered one of the world’s most eligible bachelors. He and Amal Clooney, a human rights lawyer, have only had eyes for each other and often appear on red carpets together hand-in-hand and cheek-to-cheek. Together they share two children, twins Alexander and Ella.
A singer and professional NFL athlete make for the perfect pair when it comes to Ciara and Wilson. 
The two got married in 2016 and share two children together Sienna and Win. Wilson is also the stepfather of Future. On red carpets, game days and even at the White House the couple makes their love a family affair.

Lively and Reynolds definitely captured eyes at the 2022 Met Gala but they’ve also captured hearts with their love. The couple tied the knot in 2012 and have three kids together, James, Inez and Betty – with their fourth child rumored to have been recently born.
Over the years, the dynamic duo have made others smile not only with their relationship, but also with philanthropic efforts. In November 2020, they donated $250,000 to Covenant House Vancouver and $25,000 to Covenant House Toronto to help the organization support at-risk, homeless and trafficked youth across Canada. 
Comedian DeGeneres and actress de Rossi are another couple we can’t get enough of. 
DeGeneres and de Rossi originally married at their home in Beverly Hills in 2008. The couple married again in February 2023 in front of 15 guests. They renewed their vows and tapped Kris Jenner as the wedding officiant and Brandi Carlile to set the music. 
The actress left the former talk show host speechless after stepping out in the original ivory gown she wore for their wedding. Carlile performed “The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face” as de Rossi led a visibly stunned DeGeneres to the front of the room.
This celebrity couple knows a thing or two about longevity.
The “Sleepless in Seattle” co-stars have been married for three decades and have been together in sickness and in health as they battled COVID-19 in early 2020, the first major celebrities to be diagnosed with coronavirus. 
“Rita went through a tougher time than I did,” Hanks said in an interview in April 2020, describing their isolation in an Australian hospital at the time. “She had a much higher fever and she had some other symptoms. She lost her sense of taste and smell. She got absolutely no joy from food for a better part of three weeks.”
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and his wife, Lauren Hashian, had been dating for more than 10 years before deciding to get married in 2019. The two share two daughters: Jasmine and Tiana. They also have a blended family with his eldest daughter, Simone, from his previous marriage. 
The coupling is going strong as the two stepped out in their best dressed looks for the Grammys. 
“I was so fortunate to have fallen in love once,” Johnson told People in 2012. “To fall in love again? That’s a hard thing to do twice in the position I’m in.”
