Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys Aren't the Only Couple Who Fell in Love on Set! Here Are 12 More
By John Boone
It’s life imitating art! Except without the whole Soviet KGB spies thing!
The Americans co-stars Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys confirmed their off-screen relationship in 2014. Now, the former Felicity star is pregnant with the couple's first child! These two are hardly the first celebrities to fall in love on set, though -- here are 12 that managed to make it work.
Snow White and Prince Charming met on Once Upon a Time and began dating in 2011. Two years later, they were engaged and in May 2014, one month after secretly tying the knot, they welcomed their first child, a son named Oliver. In Nov. 2014, the couple announced they were expecting baby No. 2!
2. Morena Baccarin and Ben McKenzie
Mere days after learning that the Gotham costars were dating in real life, fans were surprised to learn that Baccarin, who plays Dr. Leslie Thompkins opposite McKenzie’s Jim Gordon, was pregnant with the couple’s first child. Fun fact: She once guest starred on his show, The O.C., back in 2006.
3. Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer
Sookie Stackhouse may not have ended up with “Vampire Bill” Compton on True Blood -- in fact, she staked him through the heart -- but Paquin and Moyer met on the show, got married in 2010, and in 2012, welcomed their first children together, twins Charlie and Poppy.
4. Alexis Bledel and Vincent Kartheiser
Bledel may have played one of Pete Campbell’s (Kartheiser) mistresses when the two met on the set of Mad Men, but the former Gilmore Girls star became his one and only when he proposed in March 2013. The two were married a year later.
As if you need reminding of how the one-time Mr. & Mrs. Smith co-stars met! And after seven years of dating, Brangelina got engaged in April 2012 and, two years later, secretly wed in France in Aug. 2014. They have six kids together, Maddox, Zahara, Shiloh, Pax, Knox, and Vivienne.
6. Eva Mendes and Ryan Gosling
Possibly the best looking couple in the world started dating on the set of The Place Beyond the Pines in 2011. Gosling went on to cast her in his directorial debut, Lost River, and in Sept. 2014, they welcomed their first daughter, Esmeralda, together.
7. Jenna Dewan-Tatum and Channing Tatum
The Tatums fell in love on the dance floor while filming the O.G. Step Up, all the way back in 2006. Two years later, Magic Mike himself popped the question and, less than a year after that, the duo said “I do.” In May 2013, they welcomed a daughter, Everly.
8. Amber Heard and Johnny Depp
While the now 29-year-old Heard and 52-year-old Depp met playing love interests in The Rum Diaries in 2009, they didn’t officially step out as a couple until 2012. In Feb. 2015, they married and Heard recently said, "Nothing is a dramatic change. We've been together for a long time now, so it's been a fairly organic process.”
The set of a ‘90s slasher film may not seem like the most romantic place to meet, but it worked for these two costars from 1997’s I Know What You Did Last Summer. The Buffy star accepted Prinze Jr.’s proposal in 2001 and they exchanged vows the follow year. (The same year they reunited onscreen in Scooby-Doo!). They have two children, Charlotte and Rocky, and just celebrated their 13th anniversary last year.
10. Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos
Before she was a morning show host, Ripa was a soap opera actress. She met her husband on the set of All My Children, where the two played love interests back in 1995. They made it official offscreen too, when they married in 1996, and they now have three kids: Michael, Lola, and Joaquin.
11. Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell
This list’s longest lasting couple: Hawn and Russell both appeared in 1968’s The One and Only, Genuine, Original Family Band, but didn’t fall in love until many years later, on the set of 1983’s Swing Shift. They have never married, but do have a son, Wyatt, and plenty of grandchildren.
12. Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth (Maybe!)
The “Wrecking Ball” singer and future Hunger Games star met on the set of the Nicholas Sparks movie, The Last Song, back in 2010 and were engaged two years later, only to call off the engagement in 2013. But it appears they’ve rekindled their romance once again, with the two spotted kissing and hugging in Australia.
