The LGBTQ+ Couples You Didn’t Know About


We all know about the best straight celeb couples, but there are so many celeb LGBTQ+ couples that you might not know about – and they’re mega cute couples too! So, here are ten super cute LGBTQ+ Couples that you might not know about! Read on to find out more…

1. Cara and Ashley

I’m sure most people know of model and actress Cara Delevingne and Pretty Little Liars star Ashley Benson. After meeting and working together on the set of Her Smell, it seems that it may have sparked a romance between the pair. Cara confirmed officially in June 2019 that she had been dating Ashley for over a year. Rumour has it that the two are even engaged and potentially married (although this is definitely just a rumour at this stage)! There are plenty of cute pictures floating around the internet of the two of them at the moment, and if you want to really see something cute, you can go watch Cara’s speech about Ashley and how she helped her to love herself – it’s just too much!!!

Samira and Lauren met while on the set of OITNB and officially announced that they were engaged back in October 2016.

5. Ricky Martin and Jwan Yosef

Ricky is a Puerto Rican singer, known as the “King of Latin pop” – you’ll probably know him for his number one hit Livin’ la Vida Loca.

Ricky then revealed in January 2018 that he had married Jwan and was quoted saying “We’re so in love” – awww!

6. Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka

You might already know Neil Patrick Harris from his roles in How I Met Your Mother and as the great Count Olaf in A Series of Unfortunate Events, however, what you may not know, is that he is gay and married to the also famous David Burtka. The pair became engaged back in New York in 2011, when the gay marriage equality bill passed and finally made it official with a surprise wedding in Italy back in September 2014 after a five year engagement! The couple are now fathers to twins, Gideon and Harper – how lovely!

7. Colton Haynes and Jeff Leatham

You will likely know Colton from Teen Wolf, and you may have already known that he was a member of the LGBTQ+ community. However, you may not have known that he is engaged to Jeff Leatham. In March 2017 Colton uploaded a photo of the couple to Instagram, kissing in front of an impressive firework display with the caption “I SAID YES!!!”. And if that just isn’t cute enough for you, Jeff then went on to get the one and only Cher to record a video message that was then projected on a giant screen on the beach before he proposed – what more could you ask for than a personalised message from Cher on the bloody beach!!!

8. Barry Manilow and Garry Kief

You would probably have had to have lived under a rock for a very long time to have never heard of Barry Manilow, even people who hate music have likely heard of Barry Manilow. However, people may not be aware that he only came out as gay a few years back. Barry has been rather private about his love life, which is why not many people are aware that Barry married his longtime manager, Garry Kief, in a lovely private wedding ceremony back in April 2014.

9. Matt Bomer and Simon Halls

American actor, producer, director and singer, Matt Bomer came out publicly back in 2012, however, not many people are aware of Matt Bomer and Simon Halls’ relationship, mainly due to the fact that the pair married in secret back in 2011 and did not announce the marriage until just May 2014 when they were interviewed by Details magazine! Since then though, the couple has had three sons together, Henry, Walker, and Kit!

10. Tom Daley and Dustin Lance Black

If you are British, you will 100% know who Tom Daley is – in fact you likely had a crush on him when you were back in middle school or high school. However, you might not know that the British Olympic dive champion came out as bisexual back in 2013 and has since got together with Dustin Lance Back and became engaged back in 2015! As of 2017, the couple are now happily married too!
