Celebrity couples who got engaged over the holidays
The future looked bright for this singer and her actor/model beau when they got engaged during 2007 holiday season, but the relationship suffered a black eye when rumors of infidelity surfaced less than a year into the marriage.
After working through their problems, the couple says they are stronger and more deeply in love than before.
After failed relationships with a couple of high-profile actors (who was one?), this Academy Award-winning actress decided to walk the line, forget the vagaries of Hollywood romances, and create a sweet new home with a man from a different side of the industry — an agent rather than an actor.
This Oscar-nominated actress (her upcoming film?) sounded a little catty when she first discussed her 2011 Thanksgiving engagement: "I was really actually looking forward to a little alone time, and then I fell in love like a fool!" Maybe she was worried that love would end up making her tres miserable.
This actress and her choreographer fiancé decided not to dance around; the couple announced their engagement and her pregnancy at the same time.
The bride is a singer and sometime actress who was a country music star at age 13. The groom is an actor and sometime singer of Cuban descent.
Love blossomed for this crossover couple when they met while co-starring in a made-for-TV movie based on a popular romance novel. They announced their engagement just after Christmas in 2010 and married in 2011.
When this American actor and Brazilian model/designer married in June 2012, after getting engaged on Christmas Day in 2011, it was just one more step on a path they had already chosen.
"We've been living a married life for over six years now,” said the bride. “We have homes together, we have family together, we have kids, we've built a life together.”
Wedding engagements, like other good intentions, don’t always pan out. When this legendary soul singer got engaged to her longtime companion during the holidays in 2011, the couple planned to marry in 2012, but she soon called off the wedding — just as she'd done with the same man in 1987.
