Every celebrity has their fair share of fans. Today, we’re looking at fans that got really lucky and ended up marrying their favorite celebrity. Let’s dive in.
Ringo Starr & Maureen Cox
Maureen Cox used to hang out frequently at a live music venue Cavern Club based out of Liverpool, England. There, she developed a huge crush on Ringo Starr, the drummer of The Beatles. Their relationship started out low-key. When Maureen became pregnant in 1965, the duo decided to have a quick wedding. Maureen was barely 18 when she got married to her idol, Ringo Starr.
Adam and Jackie Sandler
Actor Adam Sandler is known for his impeccable comedic timing. The actor met his future wife Jackie Titone on the set of Big Daddy. In the film, Jackie played the part of a waitress.
The duo began seeing each other soon after and romance ensued. They tied the knot in 2003 and are now proud parents to two daughters.
Nicolas Cage and Alice Kim
Alice Kim used to work as a waitress before she married Nicolas Cage. Their romantic story literally had a fairy tale beginning. Apparently, Cage walked into Kim’s workplace one fine day. Though Kim was the biggest fan of Cage, it was Cage who fell for her.
He wasted no time in pursuing her. The duo began an intense romance, which then led to marriage just within two months! They have a son named Kal-El.
Prince William and Kate Middleton
Today, Prince William and Kate Middleton make for one of the greatest power couples in the world. They are a sight to behold, and still look very much in love. It’s hard to digest the fact that Kate, during her school days, was Prince William’s biggest fan.
As per her roommates, she even had a giant poster of William on the wall of her room. It’s something Kate has refused to comment on to this day. But, we’re glad that the duo ended up marrying one another.
Steve and Marjorie Harvey
Steve and Marjorie met by chance, but they ended up getting married. Apparently, Steve was performing in a comedy club and Marjorie had turned up late for his performance. But, when she did turn up, she made Steve’s heart flutter.
He halted his show for a second and declared that he was going to marry her before the crowd. Steve honored his promise by marrying her in 2007. This sounds like something you would see in a film.
Liza Powel and Conan O’Brien
Conan O’Brien met his future wife Liza Powel when she attended the taping of his show The Late Night in 1993. O’Brien was instantly drawn to Liza’s beauty. Liza’s father too noticed the attraction O’Brien had towards his daughter.
Years later, Brien told Piers Morgan that somewhere in the vault of NBC, “There’s footage of me literally falling for my wife on camera.” How cute is this?!
Patrick Dempsey and Jillian Fink
Jillian Fink worked as a hairdresser when she wasn’t busy fangirling over Patrick Dempsey. Apparently, Dempsey walked into her salon for a quick haircut. And Fink, being Dempsey’s fan, was beyond excited to attend to him.
They began talking several haircuts later and began dating shortly. The duo got married in 1999 and became parents to three children, soon after. Though the couple hit the rocky patch in between, they made it through to emerge stronger than ever.

Matt Damon and Luciana Barroso
Matt and Luciana first met in 2003 in Miami whilst Matt was filming. He had apparently come to the bar where Luciana worked with his crew. He asked Luciana to help him escape the crowd and so, she had him help her tend to customers.
The duo started talking and began warming up to each other. They ended up getting married years later. Today, they’re proud parents to four daughters.
Christian Bale and Sibi Blazic
Christian Bale had vowed to never marry, considering the high rate of failed marriages in his family. But, he changed his mind when he met Sibi. Sibi was working as Winona Ryder’s assistant when she found out that the actress was on friendly terms with Bale.

Jerry Seinfeld and Jessica Sklar
Jessica was already married to someone when she first met Jerry at a health club. Still, they started chatting each other up — with Sklar revealing the details about her rocky marriage to him.

Reese Witherspoon and Jim Toth
Jim Toth first met Reese Witherspoon in a bar in an uncanny situation. Apparently, Reese was being troubled by a pesky fan at the bar. Toth, who was a big fan of Reese himself, decided to intervene. He handled the situation pretty well, leading them to talk.
The duo started dating and ended up getting hitched in 2011 and welcoming a son a year later. If you think about it, Toth not only rescued Witherspoon but also swept her off her feet.
Vince Vaughn and Kyla Weber

When Tracey McShane first met Jon Stewart, she had just come out of her seven-year relationship. So, naturally, she was feeling blue. One day, a friend casually asked her about her ideal guy.
