Time and time again, celebrity couples have proven that love knows no age. You can be together, understand each other, and live happily ever after despite the big age gap between you two. After all, age is just a number. Here are a few of your favourite celeb couples who are making their relationship work despite their age differences.
Blake Lively & Ryan Reynolds
Regarded as the dreamiest and coolest couple, the two has 11 years of age gap between them. Blake Lively was only 22 years old when she met then 33-year old Ryan Reynolds on the set of Green Lantern in 2010.
“We were buddies then. I remember it was funny because for about a year after Green Lantern had come and gone and all that stuff, we were both single. We went on a double date. She was on a date with another guy, and I was on a date with another girl. That was the most awkward date [from their perspective] probably because we were just like fireworks coming across,” Ryan recalled.
They became official in December 2011. Surprisingly, the couple officially tied the knot in September 2012 at Boone Hall Plantation in Mount Pleasant, SC.
Now, they’re blessed with two little girls, James and Ines. The couple continues to amaze the world with how they’re madly in love with each other.
Blake even shared to Marie Claire magazine: “I knew he would always be my best friend for my whole life. That was the biggest thing to me. I’d never known anything like the friendship that I had with him. I could like him as much as I loved him.”
Alicia Vikander and Michael Fassbander
Since Alicia Vikander and Michael Fassbander were first paired in the film The Light Between Oceans in 2014, there is an undeniable chemistry between them. In spite of the rumors swirling between the two, they both kept silent.
The only time forty-year old actor talked about his 29-year old sweetheart was when he commented about her acting, saying: “I was kind of scared when Alicia came—she was so fierce and hungry,I really felt like I had to get my s— together … and just be there and be as present as she was.”
As expected, the couple wedded secretly at an eco-hotel in Ibiza last October 2017.

Of course, even the proposal came as big news to everyone especially since it followed a quick break up. Levine shared his feelings towards their engagement. In his interview at the show Live with Kelly and Michael, he said: “Doesn’t matter how certain you think you are. You still get down on that knee and you just get woozy and you’re like, ‘I’m doing this. Oh my God.’ And you can’t be confident about it. It’s impossible.”
“I’m a confident person, but I got down on that knee and everything changed immediately. I lost my equilibrium. I had to get on the other one,” he continued.
Two years of dating and some rumoured break ups, they finally decided to tie the knot on July 2014 in Los Cabos, Mexico.It seems that 2 is their favourite number. After two years of marriage, they were blessed with their first born Dusty Rose. Two years later, Behati gave birth to another daughter, Gio Grace.
Jay-Z and Beyonce
They may have a 12-year age gap, but the two is definitely in-sync with each other. Jay-Z started dating Beyonce in 2001 when she was only 19 years old. Beyonce shared on Oprah on how they started getting to know each other.
“We were friends first for a year and a half before we went on any dates. We were on the phone for a year and a half, and that foundation is so important for a relationship. Just to have someone who you just likeis so important, and someone [who] is honest.”
Although they have been spotted in many red carpet events and shows together for many years, they still decided to keep their wedding in August 2008 a secret. Later on, Jay-Z told Vibe magazine the reason why.
“I just think it’s really a part of your life that you gotta keep to yourself … You have to, or you’ll go insane in this type of business. You have to have something that’s sacred to you and the people around you … I shared so much of my life, my childhood, and my family, the death of my nephew with the world. I should have something to hold on to. You need something for your sanity to say, ‘Okay, I could chill out, and this is it.’”
Since then, the two lived a happy married life with their first born, Blue Ivy, 6 and their twins, 8 months.
Jason Statham and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley
You won’t believe that this power couple has a 20-year age gap. Actor Jason Statham who is now 51 years old started dating 31-year old model-actress Rosie Huntington-Whiteley in 2010. The couple’s romance is filled with lots of PDA moments.

The couple confirmed their engagement in January 2016. Months before this, Rosie gushed over Statham In her interview with Self magazine and describe him as his best mate. “He makes me laugh every day. I almost feel like I never had a proper boyfriend before!”
A year later, the couple expected their first child. It was June of last year when Rosie gave birth to their son, Jack Oscar.
Back in 2012, the model-actress hinted how she sees herself starting a family soon. “I always see myself working, but definitely being a mum will be a big part of me.”
“Look, I think my career is very self-indulgent. It’s all about me. I’m not a doctor, I’m not looking after people, I’m not saving children. I’m in the entertainment business. I’m a model. I’m an actress. So it is very self-involved,” she explained.
“I think there is naturally a point where you think, ‘I don’t care about myself as No. 1 anymore. I want to care about other things.”
