We adore celebrity relationships — the details of how they met, their favorite things about one another, sweet tributes on social media, and everything in between. And we love celebrity weddings just as much. Who doesn’t want to see a new, unique celebrity wedding gown? But the thing we love more than the rest, without fail, is seeing how our favorite celebrities handle parenthood — Instagram baby picture updates and all. And while there’s that old schoolyard chant, “First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes the baby carriage” — some of our favorite celebrity love stories didn’t follow that old-fashioned order.
Some couples have babies before they get married, while others just don’t ever tie the knot. Love isn’t a science and doesn’t have a rulebook. It happens the way it happens. And it turns out that, from Bradjelina to Isla Fisher and Sacha Baron Cohen, there are quite a few A-list celebrity couples who welcomed children before planning a wedding. Check out the celebrity couples who had kids before marriage below.
