With Valentine’s day happening yesterday , with love still in the air, it got me wondering of all the many celebrities that I ship so hard and wish for them get back together in the year 2019. I mean there is hope, take a look at Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth, *finally* worked things out and their reunion gave us hope that these other erstwhile hot celeb romances can be rekindled, too.
From former teen dream, Hilary Duff and Aaron Carter, to our fave on-screen pairing-turned-IRL romance, Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield, these are the celeb couples we’d love to see back together.
1. Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone
Why they split: Their four-year romance came to an (apparently friendly) end in October 2016, after an initial break in 2015.
Why we loved them: These two def seemed like one of the most down-to-earth couples in Hollywood. But mostly because I just love Emma Stone and want her to be happy/want to be her.
Chances of a reunion: We’re not holding our breath. Stone’s reportedly got a new mans in the form of SNL writer and relative normal, Dave McCary.
2. Gavin Rossdale and Gwen Stefani
Why they split: In a tale as old as time, this divorce was thanks to Rossdale’s infidelities with their longtime, much younger nanny. *Insert one million exasperated eyerolls* When will headlines like this ever end.
Why we loved them: He’s a rocker with an accent and she’s the ultimate babe who fronts a band from southern California, so cool points galore. Plus, when a Hollywood marriage lasts nearly 13 years, colour us attached—that’s like 100 normal human years.
Chance of a reunion: While Rossdale low-key seems misery central without Stefani, Stefani is p. deep in the throes of l.o.v.e. with People’s Sexiest Man of 2017 Blake Shelton so chances of a relationship reboot are lookin’ bleak. Besides, our happiness must be sacrificed for Gwen’s happiness and sanity.
3. Heidi Klum and Seal
Why they split: While the pair were reputed to be in turmoil over allegations of Seal’s over partying and Klum’s alleged dalliance with one of her bodyguards, they both publicly attributed the split to “growing apart.”
Why we loved them: Have you seen their babies?! Orthe fact thaey look absolutely beautiful together? The German model and man with the voice of an angel were always #goals—they even got engaged atop a freakin’ glacier!
Chance of a reunion: Both Seal and Klum are currently single pringles, so with some heavy couples counselling and a trust fall or two, this team could be back on top of that glacier.
4. Freida Pinto and Dev Patel
Why they split: Pinto opened up late last year about the pair’s breakup, saying that at 28 years old, she was going through a mid-life crisis and needed to focus on herself, fair. We’ve all been there.
Why we loved them: Two words: Slumdog Millionaire. Basically, what we witnessed was a real-life Nicholas Sparks novel come to life. They rose to fame together and it was romantic.
Chance of a reunion: While Patel is gallivanting with his current gf Tilda Cobham-Hervey and Pinto has been spotted with a hunky mystery man, the two allegedly remain best friends. If only we could get a Slumdog sequel, they’d 100 percent fall back in love. For now I’ll just dream of that day.
5. Hilary Duff and Aaron Carter
Why they split: It takes two to tango and sometimes it’s just a solo act. This one’s on Carter, unfortunately he reportedly dated Duff simultaneously also dating Lindsay Lohan at the time.
Why we loved them: They we’re a product of the Disney machine and cuties of their generation. It was a match made in family channel heaven. All us 90’s kids are probably weeping as I write this.
Chance of a reunion: Carter has proclaimed his everlasting love for Duff via Twitter so he’s definitely down for it, though Duff is currently dating a former flame for the third time, which might sound like her and Carter don’t stand a chance.
6. Nick Jonas and Olivia Culpo
Why they split: Jonas admitted that he’s not a “pro” at long-distance relationships. Wait, is anyone? Lame excuse, but I guess it turned out for the better.
Why we loved them: Compared to his past short-lived teen romances, Jonas’s relationship with Culpo seemed like the real deal. Plus, we have her to thank for his hit song “Jealous.”
Chance of a reunion: Not so good. Maybe because he is married! To the ever so beautiful actress Priyanka Chopra, While Culpo is reportedly back together with football player, Danny Amendola.
7. Ariana Grande and Big Sean
Why they split: There were several rumours revolving around the couple’s demise, but I think it was probably Big Sean’s sexist lyrics that had something to do with it.
Why we loved them: These two just looked so good together. We know looks aren’t everything in a relationship, but their chemistry was palpable …even though it fizzled out after eight months.
Chance of a reunion: We don’t see anything happening with these two any time soon. Grande is too busy killing it at her career and if I’m being honest needs to have a break from men. Besides, Ari has said multiple times that getting over Sean was a breeze. Ouch.
8. Orlando Bloom and Miranda Kerr
Why they split: So many rumours swirled around this couple’s divorce: busy schedules, being separated too much, Bloom’s drinking, Kerr’s alleged affair with Justin Bieber, we’ll probably never know what really happened.
Why we loved them: A supermodel and a super hottie with a super adorable kid, what’s not to love?
Chance of a reunion: These two seemed to have figured out a very healthy co-parenting situation, and while we’re rooting for a rekindling, Kerr’s remarried to Snapchat founder Evan Spiegel and the two are expecting a baby together so we’re calling this one a forever-split.
9. Selena Gomez and The Weeknd
Why they split: After 10 months of v. public dating, the duo chalked their split up to long distance and scheduling challenges.
Why we loved them: It was the surprise ship we didn’t know we needed. Gomez never looked chicer and the Weeknd never looked happier; these two we’re GLOWING. It was the perfect pairing of hot 100 chart toppers.
Chance of a reunion: The Weeknd has unfollowed Gomez from the ‘gram and is back to his former lady, model Bella Hadid and Selena very much happy with her BFFs, but if history has taught us anything, it’s to never say never.
