They Didn’t Choose Love – Love Chose Them

We can’t choose who we love, it’s just a feeling that someone else gives us. More often than not, it doesn’t make any sense. This also applies to the celebrity world. While you might wonder why certain famous people date certain people, it would never cross their minds to question their love. Some of these couples have been together through thick and thin, while others have only just begun their relationships together. At any rate, these couples appreciate each other and don’t care what others think. The following celebrities love their partners, regardless of what members of the public or critics might have to say about them.

Hunter McGrady & Brian Keys

Body-positivity model Hunter McGrady has been making history for the last few years now, especially for her cover features in magazines such as Sports Illustrated’s Swimsuit Issue and The Knot. However, her life has gotten even better after she tied the knot with her “one,” Brian Keys.

The couple recited their vows at a ceremony in Moorpark, California. McGrady has also become a proud stepmother to Keys’ daughter. “She’s just the most beautiful little girl,” she said. “She’s so special, so gentle and so loving.”

Ashley Graham & Justin Ervin

Ashley Graham has become one of the biggest proponents of body positivity over the last few years. However, she admits that her interracial relationship with videographer Justin Ervin has not always been easy.

They met back in 2009 and according to Graham, her family was a little surprised when she introduced Ervin to them. Since then though, the couple’s marriage has gotten stronger and stronger with time and Graham and Ervin are currently expecting their first child.

Billy Gardell & Patty Knight

For a long time, fans of the sitcom Mike and Molly assumed that the actors who played the titular couple, Billy Gareel and Melissa McCarthy, were actually an item in real life.

Oprah Winfrey & Stedman Graham

There are some celebrity couples out there who are so in love and yet, they feel no pressure from society to actually get married. One classic example of this is Oprah Winfrey and her partner Stedman Graham. The couple has been together since 1986 and even got engaged.
