    John Legend wrote "All of Me" for Chrissy Teigen and sang the ballad at their wedding, which is enough to make our hearts go pitter-patter. Romantic gestures aside, they have a true partnership: In April, when social media users attacked Chrissy Tiegen for leaving her newborn baby at home to go on a dinner date with John, her hubby quickly came to her defense. "Funny there's no dad-shaming," he tweeted. "When both of us go out to dinner, shame both of us so Chrissy doesn't have to take it all. We'll split it." How gallant is that?

  • Channing Tatum & Jenna Dewan-Tatum

    Magic Mike star Channing credits his wife, Jenna, for his success. "Jenna puts everything in perspective for me," the star has said. Whether they're reenacting the final scene from Step Up on Snapchat, facing off on Spike's Lip Sync Battle (she crushed it!), or taking their daughter trick-or-treating (Channing makes a really hilarious Winnie the Pooh), their home seems to be filled with laughter — and some seriously sexy dance moves!

  • Sofia Vergara & Joe Manganiello

    This couple is proof that even in age-obsessed Hollywood, women can find their "happily ever after" after 40. Their love story also shows that chivalry is far from dead. Manganiello had a crush on Vergara for years before she called it quits with former fiancé Nick Loeb. After getting her digits from her Modern Family co-star, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, he called and eventually flew to New Orleans, where she was filming a movie, to woo her. Even Sofia's son is thrilled for his mom: In June 2016, he posted a photo of the pair with the caption, "On this day, these two went on their first date two years ago. And now they spend all day watching Netflix and 'Naked and Afraid.' That's real love."  

  • Will Smith & Jada Pinkett Smith

    For years Will and Jada have been at the center of divorce rumors. During one particular wave in 2015, Will reassured fans via Facebook, writing, "In the interest of redundant, repetitious, over & over-again-ness... Jada and I are...Not getting divorced!" Jada, meanwhile, is so supportive of her man that she was outraged when his performance in Concussion didn't earn a Best Actor nod at the 2016 Oscars, calling out the Academy and spearheading the #OscarsSoWhite boycott. These two are so ride-or-die for each other, it's hard not to be a tad jealous!

  • Kristen Bell & Dax Shepard

    Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard are the epitome of the "opposites attract" adage, yet they fit together perfectly. The two always seem to have fun together — whether creating a tribute video to Toto's "Africa" or crashing a Game of Thrones premiere in matching "Stark in the Streets/Wildling in the Sheets" tank tops. But they're also very forthright about how their relationship involves work. Last year, Bell revealed that couples therapy has played a key role in maintaining a healthy relationship. 

  • Blake Lively & Ryan Reynolds

    The key to a successful marriage is liking someone as much as you love them, at least according to Blake Lively. "I knew he would always be my best friend for my whole life," Blake Lively said of marriage to Ryan Reynolds. The couple also shares values. Both come from large fams and consider family a top priority. When they bought a house in the suburbs of New York City so they could raise a family with a sense of community, they seemed even more relatable.

  • Barack Obama & Michelle Obama

    The best part about President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama's marriage is that it's based on love and mutual respect. Whether giving each other encouraging fist bumps or holding hands while walking along the White House Colonnade, the Obamas are arguably more affectionate than any president and First Lady before them. "Watching my husband walk off of Marine One and go to the Oval Office, it's like, mmm, mmm, mmm," Michelle Obama told Oprah Winfrey. "And you know he's got that walk, right? He was [always] very swaggalicious."

  • Beyonce & Jay Z

    During their 14 years together, Bey and Jay Z have been plagued by rumors of infidelity. These reached a fever pitch when Beyonce released Lemonade, which hinted that Jay Z cheated. But Lemonade wasn't a mere story of betrayal — it was also one of forgiveness and rebirth. In Lemonade's final chapter, we hear the words, "True love brought salvation into me. With every tear came redemption, and my torturer became my remedy. So we're gonna heal, we're gonna start again." The implication is that they've weathered the storm and emerged stronger, which is something to envy.

    Supermodel Gisele Bundchen and NFL star Tom Brady have endured quite a few trials. When they were first dating, Brady's ex, Bridget Moynahan, revealed she was pregnant with his child. Other women may have fled, but Gisele stuck around. Then in 2015 Brady became embroiled in the scandal known as Deflategate, but the bad times never broke them. "We've been through a lot of ups and downs together," Brady admitted in a March 2016 Access Hollywood interview. "In so many ways, that's kind of built our relationship so strong. It's great to have that rock that you can always lean on that can support you in different ways."

  • Kim Kardashian & Kanye West

    She posts naked photos on Instagram. He goes on epic Twitter rants. It may seem strange to the outside world, but it makes perfect sense to Kim and Kanye. "[In my music] I say a lot of lines other wives would not allow their husbands to say," Yeezy told Vanity Fair, "but my wife also puts up photos that other husbands wouldn't let them put up. One of the keys to happiness in our marriage is we're allowed to be ourselves." They're also fiercely protective of one another (see latest beef with Taylor Swift). Say what you want, but these two have each other's backs.

  • Prince William & Kate Middleton

    The thing about Prince William and Kate Middleton is that despite being the world's most famous royals, they seem so ... normal. It's not exactly common to see a princess pushing a grocery cart or a prince toting his tot to a local playground, but that's just what these two are often found doing. Known for being down-to-earth, they are the epitome of the modern royal couple, trying to raise a family in the public eye while being true to both tradition and themselves. Talk about #MarriageEnvy!

  • George Clooney & Amal Alamuddin

    For years, George Clooney was the perpetual bachelor. Then the star finally said "I do" to Amal Alamuddin, a woman whose beauty is rivaled only by her brains. The human rights attorney is passionate about the same causes that move Clooney, making them an activist power couple. In February, George and Amal Clooney met with Syrian refugees in Berlin and spoke with German chancellor Angela Merkel to discuss the current crisis. They're also bringing attention to the mass slaughters and torture rapes that persist in Sudan. Not only are they working to make the world a better place, they're doing so as a gorgeous, loving unit.

  • Angelina Jolie & Brad Pitt

    Parents to six, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are partners in every sense of the word. They've weathered divorce rumors, Angie's double mastectomy, failed movies, and the stresses of daily life as famous working parents, and neither one seems to be tapping out anytime soon. "You hear people talking about the old ball and chain, and people trying to recapture youth, as if that's the impulse, but it's not the impulse, it's not the impulse at all," Pitt said of his marriage to Jolie. "Im surprised how much our history means to me, that we have this story together, that we know each other, that we watch each other getting older through amazing moments, joys, pains."
