11 Athletes You Didn’t Know Were Dating A-List Celebrities
Dating when it's good can be fun and exciting, especially when the partner you're with makes it totally worthwhile. Finding someone who you're so connected with, just makes everything so much better. In the midst of the normal dating world, ever think what it would be like to date a celebrity or what those famous stars go through?
Athletes are just like us, they experience the same craziness that all relationships do, except on a global stage. However, no need to cry for them, they do get SERIOUSLY lucky after all. Why you ask? Because all those celebs we hope to date, are already dating or married to each other. Talk about living their best life!
Some celebs couples are more noticeable and prominent than others while others fly under the radar. Here are some that you might already know, and some that will have you scratching your head saying, "THEY'RE together?!"
Dustin Johnson & Paulina Gretzky
Their story: The couple starting dating back in February 2013 and after dating for 7 months, they got engaged! Now the PGA star and celebutante have two sons, one of whom was born just this year!
Brooks Laich & Julianne Hough
Their story: If you tell me that hearing about the Julianne and Ryan Seacrest break up didn't break your heart, you're wrong. But it's okay. This all around all-star celeb, found her perfect match in Brooks Laich, the Canadian hockey player on the LA Kings. They met through a mutual friend and it was all sunshine from there! The two dated for quite some time, before tying the knot earlier this year!
Kevin Love & Kate Bock
Their story: Dating a celeb is not new to Kevin Love. The Cleveland Cavaliers power forward has dated many celebs in his life, the most recent being Canadian model, Kate Bock, who is promintnely know for being in the swimsuit editions of Sports Illustrated! The couple has been dating since summer 2016.
Justin Verlander & Kate Upton
Their story: Many men and boys alike regard Kate Upton as their go-to female celeb crush, so of course many hearts were shattered when she began dating and then got married to Justin Verlander, the Houston Astros pitcher. The two have been together since 2014 and are certainly a match made in heaven! Just look at how happy they look to be married?! My heartfelt apologies to all the men out there!
Dion Phaneauf and Elisha Cuthbert
Their story: current staring in The Ranch, actress Elisha Cuthbert isn't new to dating hockey players. However, hockey star Dion Phaneuf won her heart in the end. She began dating the Ottawa Senators defenseman in May 2008 and the two were happily married by 2013. She has since become quite the hockey wife!
Ryan Miller & Noureen DeWulf
Their story: Other than being drop-dead sexy actress, Noureen DeWulf is the wife of Vancouver Canucks goalie, Ryan Miller. They got married in 2011, and have the most adorable son together. Talk about game on and off the ice, eh Miller?
Sean Avery & Hillary Rhonda
Their story: While he may be one of the most hated NHL players out there, for Hilary Rhonda, Sean Avery is the perfect man. The model got married to Avery in 2015. No one has done a better job of taming the ex-NHLer than her!
Nnamdi Asomugha & Kerry Washington
Their story: For me personally, this was a major "they're together?!" moment. Kerry Washington is a bad-ass woman who has pretty much kept her personal life out of the spotlight. She has been married since 2013 to former NFL player, Nnamdi Asomugha and together they have two kids!
Jay Cutler & Kristin Cavallari
Their story: This relationship isn't a shock, but still one that I have here simply because I think they're perfect. While The Hills starlet wasn't the most warm human back in the day, she's a whole new gal with the Miami Dolphins quarterback. After a brief moment of calling of their engagement (a very The Hills plot-line), they tied the knot and now have three kids!
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain & Perrie Edwards
Their story: LOL Zayn who?! After having a very public whirlwind dating life/engagement/break up with the ex-1D singer, Perrie decided to go score some goals- which led her to the always adorable Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain. The Arsenal soccer club star has been with Edwards since about January 2017, and we honestly are SO FOR IT.
Iman Shumpert & Teyana Taylor
Their story: First of all, how good-looking is this couple. Anyway, the Cleveland Cavaliers baller and the recording artist are now married and have a little daughter together- one that Iman delivered himself since Tyanna went into early labour! The couple also is slated to have their own reality TV Show- talk about a power couple!
