TV shows, movies, plays and other forms of acting often have two people who fall in love and give everyone hope of finding their special someone. To the delight of many, some stars who acted as boyfriend and girlfriend on screen or met on set ended up living happily ever after in real life.

Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds

These two love birds met on the set of Green Lantern in 2010 and became good friends, but they didn’t actually start dating until they were both single a couple months after the movie wrapped. Sparks flew on their double date, and since then, they have had two beautiful daughters. Rumors have it that they are expecting another girl! These two are truly the most iconic couple in Hollywood and constantly melt our hearts.

Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher

Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher met on set of That 70’s Show in 1998. These two were an on and off couple in the show, but their two personalities in real life fit perfectly with each other. When the show began, Kunis was only 14 while Kutcher was 19, so they didn’t have any feelings for each other. During the show, Kunis and Kutcher had their first on-screen kiss, which happened to be Kunis’s first ever kiss. They split ways after the show ended, but saw each other at the Golden Globe Awards and hit things off. The couple kept their relationship a secret from fans for awhile, but they now have two kids together and are madly in love.

Will and Jada Pinkett Smith

These two met at the audition of the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, but it wasn’t until about twenty years later that they actually started dating. They rekindled the old flame when they saw each other at a nightclub, but there was a problem: Smith was married. Smith didn’t act on his attraction and didn’t believe in divorce either. When Smith’s wife decided to file for divorce, Smith and Pinkett started dating shortly after. These two are now married with three kids.

These couples go to show that your significant other can be found anywhere, even if you don’t start dating them until way later in your life. Things take time, and these couples also show that what’s meant to be, will be. It’s all just timing!
