This Celebrity Couple Got Married Before They Even Knew Each Other (Plus 14 Other Fast-Moving Couples)

Celebrities, they’re just like us. Which means some of them rush into relationships, abide by “love at first sight,” and marry after hours of knowing each other (okay, that one is a bit outlandish).

Still, these fast-moving celebrity couples shocked the media with their quick engagements, tattoos, and announcements. Plus, the 96-hour engagement that produced a three-year marriage (page 13).

  • They reportedly dated only days before moving in together
  • The couple got engaged and had a baby within the year before breaking things off

The couple sparked rumors with an Instagram photo, and two short days later Kardashian moved in with Blac Chyna. After four short months together, Kardashian proposed with a 7-carat diamond ring.

On May 6th (less than five months after reports surface the two are dating) both Kardashian and Blac Chyna post cryptic Instagram photos that indicate they’re pregnant. Sure enough, they deliver their baby Dream in November 2016 and break up shortly after.

  • The media called their love affair a “whirlwind romance”
  • Their literal May-December romance ended in a 17-day engagement and marriage

Sources close to the couple told People the relationship “sort of hit Cameron out of nowhere,” and they weren’t exaggerating. Diaz and Madden dated a few months before getting engaged.

Their 17-day engagement culminated with a wedding ceremony in January in Diaz’s backyard. The two have been married for over three years and choose to live a relatively quiet life together out of the media’s eye.

Sadly, the happiness was short lived. The two separated in 2013 and Reed began dating Vampire Diaries actor Ian Somerhalder midway through 2014. After finalizing her divorce from McDonald, Reed married Somerhalder in 2015 and welcomed their daughter two years later.

  • Both were reportedly dating other celebrities before shocking fans with romantic Instagram posts
  • The two allegedly got engaged a few weeks after they went public with their relationship

Last we checked, the singer was dating Mac Miller and the SNL cast member was partnered up with Cazzie David. But, quicker than you can say “Expecto Patronum,” the two were posting their Harry Potter romance all over social media and flirting with one another via Instagram.

While towards the end of May sources called their relationship “very casual,” the couple still decided to make things permanent — in ink, at least. Both have tiny clouds on their fingers and as of June 2nd, Pete has Grande’s initials on his hand and her “Dangerous Woman” bunny ears behind his ear. The two were reportedly engaged as of June 11, 2018, a few weeks after they began dating.

As of February 2015, the two were expecting their first child. They filed for divorce twice in the last two years and are officially separated with joint custody of their child. Rivera was charged with domestic battery after allegedly hitting Dorsey in the head in a fight over their child, but he dismissed the charges in early 2018.

  • Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom married a month after meeting
  • The two had a tumultuous relationship that ended five years later in divorce

If you tuned into Keeping Up With the Kardashians, you probably had an idea that Khloe Kardashian’s family believed she and NBA superstar Lamar Odom were moving too fast. The two met at a party in 2009 and married a month later.

Kardashian filed for divorce from Odom four years after they married. Odom allegedly had an affair and relapsed into “hardcore recreational drug use” according to sources. “Love is blind,” Kardashian told Howard Stern years later. “… Lamar was so great at making me feel like I was the only one and I’m this princess. I never speculated cheating … so I didn’t know about cheating.

  • “Tomkat” was a pop culture phenomenon of a couple
  • They announced their engagement just before their eight-week dating anniversary

Katie Holmes admittedly had a crush on her future husband before the two even met. “I think every little girl dreams about (her wedding),” Holmes told Seventeen magazine shortly after Dawson’s Creek ended. “I used to think I was going to marry Tom Cruise.”

And marry him, she did. The couple got engaged nearly eight weeks after meeting in 2005. They divorced in 2012 as a result of “a private matter” according to Cruise’s lawyer. They share one daughter, Suri Cruise, together.

Swift has some notable ex-boyfriends — Joe Jonas, Calvin Harris, and Tom Hiddleston among them — but Conor Kennedy wasn’t a long-lived flame. However, the two moved quickly in their relationship when Swift purchased a Cape Cod mansion right next to the Kennedy’s compound.

The two dated from February 2012 to October of the same year. Swift allegedly wrote “Begin Again,” a single about falling back in love, about Kennedy.

Cannon was diagnosed with Lupus and Carey recently went public about her struggle with bipolar disorder, a disease she was diagnosed with 17 years ago. Cannon revealed to Entertainment Tonight that the two still talk every day and remain friends.

He proposed in 2009 and the rest is history: the two A Quiet Place stars are still happily married (and working together).

Angelina Jolie and Billy Bob Thornton married in Las Vegas after dating for two months. The two engaged in a highly-covered relationship after famously wearing vials of each other’s blood around their necks. They adopted a child from Cambodia two years later before unexpectedly separating.

“It took me by surprise,” Jolie said of their divorce, “we totally changed … And it’s scary but … I think it can happen when you get involved and don’t know yourself yet.”
