Admitting she never thought she’d get married again, the popular actress (60) said ‘I do’ to her 38-year-old husband in front of friends and family.
We’ve come to expect the weird and wonderful from the celebrity world in recent years, but there’s a growing number of older women who are now settling down with men much younger than them.
Michelle may have one of the biggest relationships of the ages, but she’s far from the first to marry a younger man.
Courteney Cox and Johnny McDaid
Friends star Courteney Cox hasn’t let the 12-year gap get in the way of her blossoming relationship with Snow Patrol’s Johnny McDaid. The couple first got together in 2013, got engaged a year later, split in 2015, but then got back together in 2016.
They may have weathered the pandemic apart, but the American actress recently said she wasn’t “against” marriage when discussing her Irishman.
Joan Collins and Percy Gibson
Shortly after their wedding in 2001, reporters asked Collins about the 31-year age difference between her and theater executive Gibson. Conscious of her experienced and advanced years, but clearly unfazed by it, the glamorous eight-year-old joked: “If he dies, he dies.”
The pair are still together proving that age-old adage…’the fifth time’s a charm’.
Heidi Klum and Tom Kaulitz Catwalk queen Heidi Klum has finally found love again with musician Tom Kaulitz. The loved-up pair tied the knot in 2019 after a year of dating, despite a 16-year age gap.
In 2018, the America’s Got Talent star (49) told In Style magazine about her new relationship: “My boyfriend is many years younger than me. I don’t think about it too much. You just have to live a live a happy life without worrying too much about what people think, because worrying will only give you more wrinkles.”
Mariah Carey and Bryan Tanaka Okay, so they’re not married, but after six years it’s fair to say that Mariah Carey has found her dream boyfriend in choreographer Bryan Tanaka. Even if they did break up briefly in 2017. Maybe the secret to that is that she keeps things (relatively) low-key with him compared to previous relationships.
The 53-year-old and 40-year-old got all dolled up recently during a vacation in Capri, Italy, where Mariah’s kids (and entourage) joined them for a five-star vacation at the plush resort. The pair first met in 2006 when Tanaka was a backup dancer for singer Dreamlover.
Kris Jenner and Corey Gamble The 66-year-old socialite, TV star and self-proclaimed mum has had a roller coaster ride when it comes to her personal life. So fans of the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star were thrilled when she married 41-year-old Corey Gamble in 2014.
Surprisingly, Gamble is younger than Jenner’s eldest daughter, Kourtney Kardashian, and is the same age as Kim. What’s more amazing is that Corey hasn’t changed the spelling of his name to Korey.
Brigitte and Emmanuel Macron French President Emmanuel Macron and wife Brigitte first met in high school, where Emmanuel was a 15-year-old high school student and Brigitte was a drama teacher. They have repeatedly stated that the relationship did not begin until he turned 18.
Despite the obvious obstacles, the pair have been inseparable ever since and have never shied away from the fact that there is a massive 24 years between them. Married in 2007, the pair have no children together, but she has three children from a previous marriage.
Deborra-Lee Furness and Hugh Jackman Easily one of our favorite celebrity couples, 66-year-old Deborra-Lee Furness and 53-year-old Hugh Jackman seem to have the perfect relationship. Perhaps it helps that the pair are both actors and have been married for 26 years.
The two Australians met on the set of the Australian TV show Correlli and have two children together. Jackman is currently one of Hollywood’s most popular stars, but has always said that his off-screen leading lady was officially “the one after just two weeks together.” Honest dinkum.
Olivia Wilde and Harry Styles After calling off her engagement to fellow actor Jason Sudeikis, 38-year-old Olivia Wilde started dating 28-year-old singer Harry Styles.
He’s dated a few older women over the years, but this relationship seems to be more serious with Olivia hitting the road with the “Sugar Watermelon” singer.
Britney Spears and Sam Asghari There is nothing toxic about Britney’s third husband, Sam Asghari. The pair have been together for six years but have only been married for the past six weeks.
After finally getting out of conservatory, the 40-year-old Gimme More singer quickly married her 28-year-old boyfriend. Tragically it fell through earlier this year, but the devastating news seems to have only cemented their bond. Let’s hope he’s not a Womanizer.
