The man who played Thor in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Chris Hemsworth, met Elsa Pataky – a Spanish model and actress – thanks to mutual contacts.
They had only been public with their relationship for three months before they got married in a Christmas weekend ceremony in 2010. They’ve been together ever since, having three children together. If you’ve seen “Thor: The Dark World,” you’ve seen Pataky – she plays Jane Foster at the end of the movie for the kiss scene.
Naya Rivera & Ryan Dorsey
Just a few months after she called off her engagement to rapper Big Sean, Naya Rivera got married to Ryan Dorsey. You know him from “Ray Donovan,” “Justified,” and “Bosch.” The courtship was a short one, but they still remained together for four years.
The divorce was quickly finalized, and sadly Rivera won't have the chance to make it up – a freak accident resulted in her death by drowning in California during 2020. She and Dorsey had a son, Josey, who thankfully survived the accident and lives with his father.
Katy Perry & Russell Brand
California Girl Perry and English comedian Brand couldn't keep their hands off of each other. They moved fast: They met in 2009, announced their relationship in November of the same year, and their engagement in January of 2010.
They got married in October of 2010 in a Hindu ceremony in India. The two split up in 2011.
Ellie Goulding & Caspar Jopling
While most of these celebrity engagements are on the short side, this is one of the few that might be longer than the average. Singer/songwriter Ellie Goulding finally got engaged to her boyfriend of eighteen months when he popped the question during the summer of 2018.
The announcement included Ellie's real name, Elena, and was posted in the British newspaper “The Times.” Caspar is an English singer/songwriter. The two got married in August 2019, and in February of 2021, Ellie announced they were expecting their first child. Her son was born at the end of April the same year.
Cheryl & Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini
Cheryl shocked her fans when she revealed that she had married her boyfriend Jean-Bernard at a secret island wedding. The pair had begun dating in April of 2014 and married in July. Cheryl is a rather private celebrity. She only announced she was dating J-B F-V after they were spotted together.
After 18 months of marriage, the couple split, with a divorce finalized in October 2016. We like to think that Cheryl thought marrying somebody with enough names to balance her one out was going to make everything perfect. No such luck.
