From Justin Bieber And Hailey Baldwin To Chrissy Teigen And John Legend: 9 Of The Craziest Ways Celeb Couples Met And Started Dating
Maybe we should do the whole pen pal thing again...
Just like with regular people, you always assume that most celebs meet the same way; on red carpets, at fancy schmancy parties or on TV and film sets. Well, the regular version is Tinder or at a houseparty.
But it seems that these celebs had some totally random AF meeting and the rest, it seems, was Hollywood history...
BUT FIRST, CHECK OUT THE REALITY STARS WHO BAGGED THEMSELVES AN A-LIST RELATIONSHIP...
1. Hailey Baldwin and Justin Bieber: at a meet and greet
The pair recently announced their engagement and tbh the best thing about it was remembering how they met in the first place. Back in 2009, Hailey was a huge fan of the Biebs and her dad Stephen Baldwin took her to a meet and greet and one of his concerts where the couple met for the first time. It wasn’t until years later they met again and sparks flew. OBSESSED.
2. Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel: His friend asked her out
In the most classic teenage move, JT got his friend to call Jessica to ask of it was okay if he asked her out on a date. LOL. How “my mate fancies you” of him. She agreed and he finally rang her himself to arrange their first meeting.
3. Carey Mulligan and Marcus Mumford: Childhood penpal
The actress and her singer husband actually met when they were kids in England but when they moved away from each other the became pen pals. Years later in 2011 the reconnected and were married a year later. LOVE.
4. Kate Moss and Jamie Hince: on Google

5. Rita Ora and Calvin Harris: A Twitter feud
After Rita revealed she has turned down the opportunity to collaborate with Calvin on a song, he was less the impressed and the pair started a nasty Twitter spat.

6. Chrissy Teigen and John Legend: in his music video
In 2007 Chrissy was booked to be in the video of John’s song Stereo where the pair met and shared a steamy night together. She revealed to Cosmo: “I walked into John's dressing room to meet him, and he was ironing in his underwear. I said, 'You do your own ironing!?' He said, 'Of course I do.' I gave him a hug. I'm not going to lie. We hooked up. I let him be himself for a while. The worst thing you can do is try to lock someone like that down early on, then have them think, 'There's so much more out there.' I played it cool for a long time."
7. Peter Andre and Emily Macdonagh: His surgeon's daughter
In 2010, Pete discovered he had kidney stones and was taken in to hospital to be treated by a surgeon named Ruaraidh MacDonagh. After he recovered he met the surgeon’s family including his daughter Emily.

Back in the day when Will first made in big on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, Jada attended the same audition as he did, when she was just 19.
