Happy August! What better way to ring in the new month than with celebrity wedding anniversaries! As you know, summer is prime wedding season, and although a few celeb couples have said "I do" in the past two months, even more seem to be celebrating years of marital bliss. In a world where celebrity relationships are a fast-burning flame, it's always sweet to see those who've stood the test of time. Below, we've rounded up some celeb couples who are celebrating another year of marriage, and, fair warning, you might need to grab the tissues.
Patrick & Jillian Dempsey
To celebrate 18 years of marriage (so crazy), Mrs. Dempsey shared a sweet photo and note via Instagram on Monday. "Happy 18th Anniversary, [Patrick Dempsey]," she captioned a beachside pic, showing the Grey's Anatomy alum giving her a little smooch on the cheek. "Through thick and thin. I love you." she signed the note "wifey."
The couple met in 1994 at an upscale salon in L.A., and were married July 31, 1996. They share children Talula Fyfe, Sullivan Patrick, and Darby Galen.
Stephen & Ayesha Curry
The NBA star and Food Network chef celebrated six years of wedded bliss with not one, but two Instagram posts. Over the weekend, Ayesha shared a photo of the couple posing in front of a throwback pic of their 2011 nuptials.
“Literal then and now! Happy 6th wedding anniversary my love!” she wrote. “I don’t know where the time has gone. It definitely feels like just yesterday, except we have two babies and lack of sleep to show for it! Not to mention a ton of bomb memories. I love you so darn much that there’s not much I can say here because it won’t nearly amount to how I feel. ‘The man is the head, the woman is the neck and she can turn the head anyway she like.’ Kidding! But goodness do you put up with my antics. And for that I love you 20x infinity.”
The NBA player followed up with his wife's sweet post with a cute throwback video.
“My woman! My life! My everything!” he captioned. “‘He who finds a wife finds what is good and receives favor from the Lord.’ Proverbs 18:22 Thank you for making me a better person each and every day! I love you. Happy Anniversary baby…#six.”
Alicia Keys & Swizz Beatz
The singer and producer tied the knot seven years ago — July 31, 2010 — during an intimate ceremony by the Mediterranean. Now, they are more in love than ever. In celebration of their special day, Keys shared a photo of the nuptials along with a sweet note.
“We’ve been married for 7 years today and I’m like SO excited!!!!!" she captioned. "We’re even more in love, more full of potential and more excited about our future. We look at each other with the wonder of a child and I’m in awe of us everyday! I’m proud of the love we emanate and share with all we connect with and I can’t wait for every day of the rest of our lives!! Thank you for showing me what love freedom feels like. Here’s to endless blessings, growth, communication and Bliss!”
Beatz followed up shortly after by sharing a photo collage. "[Seven] years ago today Magic was made," he wrote. "I can’t believe time move so fast when you’re having fun and staying young with love ❤❤ 100 plus more years to go inshallah."
TIP & Tiny Harris
Although the couple has yet to announce a reconciliation (they split earlier this year over rumors of infidelity), there is no love lost between TIP and Tiny. To celebrate their 7-year anniversary, the rapper took to Instagram over the weekend to share a heartfelt note dedicated to his estranged wife.
He captioned the photo with what appeared to be a poem:
Happy 7th Anniversary Mrs H. Looking at these pics, Seems like the time flew by. Never a dull moment... Everyday we LIT!!!! Stay Making this Family shit look sexy. They ain't never seen shit like US!!!! Can't expect nobody to understand this thing of ours... it's unfathomable to most. Through the good & bad we stay up,whether right or wrong we gon RIDE!!!
