14 Celebrities Who Met Their Soulmates at Work

year ago

Even though dating a coworker comes with a lot of challenges and usually isn’t encouraged by employers, when we spend so much time interacting with them and have a lot in common, the attraction might appear out of nowhere. Just remember all the relationship drama in The Office. Celebrities sometimes fall for their colleagues, too, and we gathered such couples in this article.

1. Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton

In 2014, Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton met when they were both judges on The Voice. As they comforted and supported one another through the difficult process of divorce, they formed a deep bond that only grew stronger over time. This connection brought them together in the end. They started dating in 2015, got engaged in 2020, and then officially tied the knot in July 2021. They’ve never been happier.

Stefani said that meeting Shelton was “the dream.” Shelton has stated that the rock singer saved his life and that no one else could comprehend his high-profile divorce as well as she could due to their shared experiences.

2. Michael J. Fox and Tracy Pollan

Michael and Tracy first met on the set of his TV show Family Ties in 1985. The young actors played boyfriend and girlfriend but didn’t instantly give in to their attraction. A few years later, Fox and Pollan reunited for the movie Bright Lights, Big City and haven’t been apart ever since.

3. Britney Spears and Sam Asghari

The way Sam Asghari reached out to Pop Queen Britney Spears was kind of embarrassing... Or at least that’s what he confessed to the media. They were working together on the shooting for the Slumber Party music video. Spears came to him to introduce herself and because he was so nervous, he pretended to not know who she was just to make her laugh.

4. Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds
