10+ Celebrities Who Met Their Match When They Were Teenagers

You never know when you're going to meet the love of your life.

It could be when you're newly single, waiting in line at Target in your favorite sweatpants, or even when you're with someone else.

It could even happen in an instant when you're a teenager. While some rag on young love, so many of these romances are still going strong today.

Here are 10+ celebs who met their match when they were teenagers.

1. Alicia Keys

While the singer met her husband, Swizz Beats, when they were teenagers, she wasn't too fond of him at the time.

But that all changed when they reconnected in 2008. Soon, Alicia was accused of breaking up her husband's previous marriage since Beatz was allegedly still married to his first wife, Mashonda Tifrere.

2. Snoop Dogg

Before he was Snoop Dogg, he was just Calvin Cordozar Broadus, Jr., a high school student who was in love with his sweetheart, Shante Broadus.

The pair, who had their first son together in 1994, even went to prom together!

They got married after high school in 1997. But that's not to say that things weren't rocky.

They filed for divorce in 2004, but ended up reconciling.

"I was trying to get a divorce, but I went back home and I fell back in love with my wife and kids," he told MTV.

3. Patrick Mahomes

The 2020 Super Bowl champion has an MVP: his wife, Brittany Matthews.

The high school sweethearts met as classmates in Tyler, Texas. They've been together ever since and recently gave birth to their first child.

4. Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher


This adorable pair met on That '70s Show when Mila was only 14 and Ashton was 19.

This obviously made their kissing scenes uncomfortable, as Ashton told Howard Stern that it was like kissing his little sister.

Clearly, he got over it eventually, since the pair ended up falling for each other after his divorce to Demi Moore.

Today, they've been married since July 2015 and have two kids! Forever Jackie and Kelso!

5. Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin

When Justin shared this #throwback photo, it proved that he's known his wife, Hailey Bieber, for a long time.

"I've known him since I was so young—since I was like 13—and we've just been good friends over the years," Hailey said in an interview with E! News.

The pair dated in 2015, but they ended up breaking up a year later in 2016.

During this time, they dealt with a lot of flack from Selena Gomez fans.

Thankfully, they rekindled things in 2018 and have even gotten married!

6. Kurt Russell

They met for the first time on the 1968 Disney musical, The One and Only Genuine Original Family Band

At the time, Kurt was 15 and Goldie was 20. Because of this age difference, Goldie didn't feel sparks.

“He was way too young for me," she told *CBS Good Morning*.

Thankfully, they reconnected in the 1980s on the set of Swing Shift and fell madly in love. They've now been together for 37 years!

7. LeBron James

The basketball superstar had his first date with his now-wife, Savannah Brinson, when they were just teenagers.

This was at Outback Steakhouse. Brinson told Harper's Bazaar that after that date, she knew he loved her.

They ended up getting pregnant while Brinson was still in high school.

When this happened, James reassured her that they were going to be okay.

Clearly, it did as James became the NBA King! They finally got married in 2013 after many years together.

8. LL Cool J

While on Jimmy Kimmel Live, the rapper shared the sweet story of how he met his wife, Simone Smith, when he was just 19.

He said that he was driving with his friend on Easter Sunday, when his friend asked if he wanted to meet his cousin, Simone. The rest is history.

9. Bono

The singer and his wife, Ali Hewson, have been married for almost four decades after meeting in school.

At the time, Hewson played hard to get since she didn't want to be "just another of Bono's girls." Eventually, they fell in love.

10. Steph Curry

The longtime couple's how-they-met story is beyond adorable. They met when they were teenagers at a local youth group in Charlotte, North Carolina.

They wouldn't date until they were older, though. "It was that shy middle school, high school stuff," Ayesha told ABC News.

They ended up reconnecting when Curry's career began to take off.

When he was invited to LA for the ESPY Awards, all he could think of was his crush.

The golden couple fell in love, got married, and now have three kids.

11. Ron Howard and Cheryl Alley

Kendrick and his fiancee began dating in high school:

“I wouldn’t even call her my girl,” he said to Billboard back in 2015. “That’s my best friend. I don’t even like the term that society has put in the world as far as being a companion—she’s somebody I can tell my fears to.”

20. Witney Carson
