Ah, this first sighing is certainly a romantic one – Sykes first saw her future wife, Niedbalski on a ferry over to Fire Island in New York City! The comedian had something of an a-ha moment, with the universe telling her to basically ‘go after that woman Wanda!’
There isn’t too much info on Niedbalski, but all that’s revealed is that she has the travel bug and is French! Apparently, she used to sell granite counters.
Dolly Parton and Carl Dean
Not sure if you’ve been keeping tabs on this pair, but we love that after the decades of marriage, Parton still has it going on! For her husband Carl Dean’s birthday this year, she decided to re-do a photoshoot from her younger days. And seriously, she puts the young gals to shame!
Dean is well known for…being Parton’s husband. It seems that he didn't know that when he met the 18-year-old outside of the Wishy-Washy laundromat in her hometown of Nashville, he’d met the love of his life.
Alec and Hilaria Baldwin
We talk about spotting celebrities, but this is another case of a celebrity spotting a “normal” person and wanting to find out more! He was with a friend having a meal when he saw Hilaria.
He gave her his number - and he waited for her call. The yoga instructor was 28 at the time they married, while Alec was 54. Funnily enough, Hilaria had no idea who he was, but could not deny her attraction to him! Cute!
Natalie Portman and Benjamin Millepied
The very lovely Natalie Portman, who has now relocated to Australia is clearly a fan of keeping a relatively low profile. Do you even know who her husband is? Yeah. So the guy is Benjamin Millepied, whom she met on the set of the terrific “Black Swan” back in 2009.
He worked as the choreographer and also had a role in the film! The pair had a son first in June before Portman married him in August of 2012. Crazy huh? Sadly though, the couple were revealed to be separating in 2023.
Anne Hathaway and Adam Shulman
Picture this: it’s 2008 and you’re Anne Hathaway, actress, at the Palm Springs Film Festival. You spot Adam Shulman, who you find out is an actor, jewelry designer, and film producer (but by no means a big celebrity!)
You think “I’m going to marry that man.” Six weeks later, you ask him on a date to New Orleans. You take a chance - and then the rest is history. You marry. You have babies. Okay, we love Hathaway even more now!
