These Celebrity Couples Found the Love They’re Looking for in Blind Dates
Many might not know it, but celebrities also go on blind dates. Yup, you’ve read that right – blind dates. You might have assumed that your favorite stars didn’t need to be set up with anyone, knowing they could easily date anyone they wanted in a just snap of a finger.
Despite how ethereal you think they are, however, they can be very relatable, too, especially in the love and dating department.
Just like the average Joe, they, too, don’t find love that easily. Yes, despite their beauty and all perfectness, they’re still not perfect. That’s why many of them end up hiring the best lawyers to fix their legal separation.
Love can be elusive for them as well. Once a celebrity is ready to return to the dating game, they will be greeted by their crazy friends, who are more than willing to find the one who’s perfect for them through blind dates.
Mind you, some of them have the most successful love stories, like that of the fairytale-like love affair of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

Amy Schumer and Chris Fischer
Though Amy Schumer and Chris Fischer did not literally go on a blind date, her personal assistant, Molly, set them up. Fischer happens to be Molly’s brother, who is also an award-winning chef. As a proud sister, she invited Molly to come over to the actress’ vacation home to cook for her, and so, he did. From here, the rest was history. With Molly’s blessing, Schumer and Fischer officially became a thing, and things quickly developed into something more serious after that.
A few months after they started dating, the chef popped up the question, to which, of course, Schumer said yes. It only took them three or four days to plan the wedding, and there, the 40-year-old star stunned everyone to an incredible degree when she announced that she had already walked down the aisle. Come 2019, they welcomed their first child, Gene David.
Anne Hathaway and Adam Shulman
Thanks to a mutual friend, Anne Hathaway and Adam Shulman met each other. The two crossed paths at the Palms Springs Film Festival in 2008 and were introduced to one another by their common pal. The actress felt the degree of their connection was beyond palpable; she told this friend that she would marry him.
Hathaway admitted that she acted crazy that night, and Shulman might have noticed how weird she was, but she assumed she was nice. She, too, revealed she was frank with him and knew from the second they met that he was the love of her life.

It was the biggest she had done in her 40s, and it helped her open up in different ways. It was something that she did not think she would do and might not happen if she had not met Madden.
Despite the surprise, it could not be denied that they turned out to be one of the strongest Hollywood couples. They have been married for six years, and the foundation of their love is going stronger every day. Madden and Diaz now share a cute little kid, Raddix Madden.

Their love story began when the singer’s bassist happens to be the National Hockey League star’s friend, too. Childers wanted Underwood to meet Fisher, though he was living in another country at the time.
However, the singer-songwriter was a little skeptical about going on blind dates, especially since they lived far away from each other. She then suggested that they meet at the backstage of her concert. After the semi-meet-and-greet, they showed perfect chemistry that was off the charts. Though it took them three months before they saw each other again personally, they finally had their first date.

Fortunately, the actress returned, and here he told her he would be the father of her kids. Baffled by the confession, Zeta-Jones left, but despite blowing up what could have been a beautiful night, they still ended up with each other. The couple got married in 2000, and yes, she indeed became the mom of his three kids: Cameron, Carys Zeta, and Dylan Michael Douglas.

However, just like other relationships, theirs also had several hurdles.
Pataky admitted she used to be afraid of being the actor’s girl, seeing a lot of other women were crazy over him. She wanted a more serious relationship and did not think she could get it from Hemsworth, so she left him, but he was persistent. He assured him she would only be the girl in his life. Fast forward to 2010, Pataky walked down the aisle and exchanged “I do’s” with Hemsworth. They now have three kids: India Rose, Tristan, and Sasha.
Cindy Crawford and Rande Gerber
Cindy Crawford’s agent, Michael Gruber, became a matchmaker when he introduced her to her now-husband, Rande Gerber. Despite her fame at the time, being one of the most famous supermodels, the entertainment industry businessman was surprised to know how down-to-earth the model was. He also found her cool, and so, their blind date turned into a serious relationship.
Come 1998, the couple got hitched in a top-secret wedding ceremony. A trusty home security system might have been installed so no one could get a glimpse of their wedding back then. Fast forward to today, the two are now celebrating their 23 years of marriage. They now have two kids, Kaia Jordan and Presley Walker, and are the epitome of relationship goals. Crawford and Gerber seem to be the coolest pair you can ever see, as they often enjoy each other’s company on their vacations.

He stood beside them and tried to make her laugh. Right then and there, Blunt knew he was the one for her.
They went on their first date in 2018, and Krasinski swore he would hit the gas and bring her to a gun range. Though he thought he would blow his chance away, their outing went well. After just a year, he popped up the question, and come 2010, they had the sweetest Lake Como wedding.

They were both in the same party and their friend introduced them to one another. They got to talking that night and that sparked interest in one another.
Timberlake was one who asked their mutual friend if Biel would let him call her and she did! The former N*Sync band member did court The A-Team star the old-fashioned way, by calling her up.

For many fans of teen movies in the 1980s, Lowe is known as a member of the ‘Brat Pack’, a group of young actors who became heartthrobs, with members including Emilio Estevez, Demi Moore, and Molly Ringwald. Lowe and Berkoff first met in 1983 on a blind date. Despite going out quite often, the thought of a relationship didn’t come across them. This all changed years later in 1989 during their work on the movie Bad Influence. This time, they began a relationship. Two years later, they have decided to tie the knot. They have two children.
While the couple’s love for one another has remained strong throughout the years, they have experienced some hurdles and setbacks along the way. Fortunately, Lowe and Berkoff managed to maintain their relationship. Their therapy sessions can be given credit for allowing them to mend any disagreements they have.
Kris Jenner and Caitlyn Jenner
While they parted ways years ago, Kris Jenner and Caitlyn, then known as Bruce, Jenner have been one of Hollywood’s most well-known couples. They first met back in 1990 during a blind date and dated shortly afterward. At the time, Kris was in the process of parting ways from famous defense attorney Robert Kardashian. Just five months in, Caitlyn and Kris tied the knot. Together, they have two children, Kendall and Kylie. From their previous relationships, they each had four children.
The couple, along with their children, became world-famous for their reality show Keeping Up with the Kardashians, which was first aired in 2007. The show made the family very rich. However, their relationship was becoming fray at this point. In October 2013, they called it quits. A cited reason was Caitlyn’s decision to become a woman. True enough, in 2015, she transitioned to a woman, adopting the name Caitlyn. Today, the former couple remain close and have been very supportive of one another.
