Filmmaker Jordan Peele and actress/comedian Chelsea Peretti are a low-key couple, to say the very least. They married secretly in 2016 and had been dating since 2013. Their courtship, however, was very much in the open. Peele adorably proposed to Chelsea via Tweet.
No words, just an engagement ring emoji, and her Twitter name. Five months later, Chelsea posted a picture of a dog and this note: “[red heart emoji] eloped a bit ago.” The only witness was the pup. Now, they have a little boy as well, born in July 2017. It is clear as day that these two were natural-born storytellers.
Joshua Jackson and Jodie Turner-Smith
This couple’s whirlwind romance kicked up in 2019 and closed out the year with "US Weekly" breaking the news of their secret wedding. British model Jodie Turner-Smith and actor Joshua Jackson met at his celeb-heavy 40th birthday bash at a West Hollywood club. Showbiz media tracked every move for details.
Finally, the couple made a red carpet appearance at AFI Fest for "Queen & Slim." After two years, Turner-Smith opened up, saying their bond only grows stronger. Meanwhile, the former "Dawson’s Creek" star called the year that also brought their baby girl into their lives “the happiest whirlwind” of his life. As of late 2023, the couple announced their divorce.
Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Hilarie Burton
These two were together ten years before they married in 2019. Hidden away in a quaint New York state farmhouse, Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Hilarie Burton reside there with their two kids, far from the bustle of the Big Apple. "Grey’s Anatomy’s" Morgan met "One Tree Hill’s" Burton at CW, sort of.
"Supernatural" star Jensen Ackles knew both actors and decided the two should meet on a blind date. They met up on a double date with Ackles and Danneel Harris at an LA bar, drank too much, and never parted. It wasn’t just the booze, Burton told "People," “His confidence was intoxicating.”
Amber Tamblyn and David Cross
"Arrested Development" star David Cross and actress Amber Tamblyn prefer privacy. The couple married in 2012 and share one child, a daughter. "The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants" actress Tamblyn announced her birth in 2017. But sometimes, it’s impossible to keep things under wraps.
Tamblyn, an open feminist, faced the dicey media situation of finding her comedian husband (“rightfully”) accused of making discriminatory comments to co-star Charlyne Yi in the form of a bad joke. Tamblyn said the incident found them confronting hard times. The media storm blew over, and their life is private again.
Carrie Coon and Tracy Letts
Carrie Coon and Tracy Letts fell in love during the 2010 season of “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?” at the Steppenwolf Theatre Company in Chicago. Both nabbed Tony Award nominations. Letts had already received the Pulitzer in 2008 for his play August: Osage County.
They starred in "The Post" together in 2017 and welcomed a baby boy in 2018. The couple wed in 2013. Whenever Letts finishes a writing project, he relies on Coon’s feedback. He sits nervously in another room, listening, and then asks which parts made her laugh. Just as adorable, Coon is moved; he cares so much.
