3 Celebrity Anniversaries You Didn’t Know About

With so many occasions that allow famous people to meet up, it is not a surprise that so many become celebrity couples. From award shows at home and abroad to lavish parties as well as meeting through work, there are many couples celebrating their relationships and wedding anniversaries that we don’t know anything about. Celebrity anniversaries are as wonderful for these couples as the rest of us. There are challenges each couple face, but these three couples have a marriage that deepens as they learn more about themselves and each other. Yet at the same time enjoy incredible security in a partnership with someone they trust, admire and want to make out with.

Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz

Friends for decades, Daniel Craig, the seventh James Bond, married Rachel Weisz in New York City on 22 June 2011 in a private ceremony involving just her son and his daughter from previous relationships. The couple, whose relationship had been reported just six months previously, have been notoriously private ever since.

The couple stepped onto the Broadway stage in Harold Pinter’s Betrayal in 2013-14, a play inspired by Pinter’s seven-year extramarital affair, which may have led to them having some interesting discussion about their upcoming 3rd anniversary gift exchange. Would a tradition gift in leather have been agreed upon or a modern gift made of crystal or glass?

Weisz has said she is proud to be married, though she never thought she would get married and at one time was quite against the idea of marriage. Now the couple live like most others. At home, neither of them talk about work. They enjoy a quiet life, and share an interest in cooking, though they do make the odd red-carpet appearance.

Isla Fisher and Sacha Baron Cohen

Before their wedding in Paris on 15 March 2010, Isla Fisher said that she would definitely have a Jewish wedding just to be with Sacha Baron Cohen, because she saw they had a future together, and religion came second to love as far as they were both concerned.

The couple had first met in 2002 at a party in Sydney, Australia, and started dating. They got engaged in 2004. Their actual wedding had just six people on the guest list as they felt it important to have a focus on the ritual and to keep it private.

They now have two daughters named Olive, born in 2007 and Elula, born in 2011 and a son called Montgomery, who was born in 2015. They say the success of their relationship is down to a shared sense of humour and a willingness to be married. Fisher has said that choosing to be together every day is incredibly romantic. Life is filled with highs and lows, and you have a best friend to share it with you.

Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz

Married since 2010, singer Alicia Keys and producer Swizz Beatz (Kasseem Dean) are often seen holding hands-on music’s hottest red carpets. A Grammy-Award winning singer, Keys has publicly celebrated her anniversaries with Swizz, stating that their love is stronger today than ever before. “I swear I have never been more in love with you! You are EVERYTHING.” she wrote in celebration of their anniversary in 2019 to which Swizz responded with a photo from when they first started dating, and the message “Thank you for the best 9yrs of my life,”

What is special about Keys and Swizz, otherwise known as the Deans, is their willingness to compromise and continuously have each other’s back. They now have two sons, Egypt Daoud Dean, born in 2010 and Genesis Ali Dean born in 2014. Their life and love is a work of greatness in progress, where every day allows for growth. They commit to “keep the fire hot” by making each other smile each day and continue to do spontaneous, crazy things.
