How it Started Vs How it's Going: 8 Celebrity Couples From the First Date to Now

Anushka-Virat, Priyanka-Nick, Jlo-Ben, Deepika-Ranveer and more. We take a look at a few of our favourite celebrity couples, from the time they first met to where they are at today. 

Isn't lovely when couples we are rooting for stick together? Or maybe sometimes they might drift apart only to find their way back to each other? If you are ever feeling disillusioned with love, look around, and you will find many examples that restore your faith in the good old-fashioned ever-after, and in the belief that love conquers all. While it's perfectly fine to call it quits if things are not working out ( you are much more than any relationship tag, remember that), it's also nice to look at couples who have stuck it out, and who look as much in love (or more) as the day they first met. Here are 8 celebrity couples who have stayed together, from the instance they first met to their most recent sightings. While the time periods of their relationships might differ, they do restore our faith in love, coupledom and all things mush. 

1. Kareena Kapoor and Saif Ali Khan

Kareena Saif

Back in 2007, one of the first official #Saifina (remember when that was a thing) was when to duo stepped out at Lakme Fashion week together. 


Cut to this recent, heartfelt Instagram post from Kareena's 41st birthday. 14 years and 2 gorgeous babies later, the couple is still going strong. 

2. Jlo and Ben Affleck

A breakup, a few relationships, a makeup and close to 18 years later, #Beniffer is back, stronger, happier and hotter than before, as seen here at the Venice film festival.

3. Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas

In April 2017, Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas posed for their first photograph together as they entered the Met Gala dressed in matching Ralph Lauren. Back then, they went to the event as friends and guests of the designer, it was an obligatory photo-op, more than anything else. 


Well, well, look at these crazy kids now! Four years later, mister and missus Jonas are happily married and putting their love of each other out there for all the world to see. 

4. Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh

Rumour has it that Deepika Padukone first felt sparks fly with Ranveer Singh on the sets of her 2014 film Finding Franny, in which Ranveer made a guest appearance as her husband (foreshadowing perhaps)? 


Back in 2021, the duo is happily married, hanging out with famous friends like PV Sindhu and making goofy Instagram videos together.

5. Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli

Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma

Anushka and Virat first met while filming this shampoo ad film together in 2013 ( their hair does look nice !)

A family link-up that led to love at first sight, Shahid and Mira Kapoor met and immediately tied the knot in 2015.


Two kids and many fun adventured together, the couple is as loved-up as ever. Watch as he hangs around while she attempts to play the piano.

7. Victoria and David Beckham

In an industry where love rarely lasts, theirs is a marriage that has stood the test of time. Victoria and David first got together in 1997 in London, when Posh Spice was asked by her manager to watch one of his football matches. We hear she was quite bored by the game.

But not by him it seems! Over 24 years later, these two have 4 kids together (gosh!) and are still going super-duper strong. 

8. Twinkle Khanna and Akshay Kumar
