The 31-year-old had been with Marcel for almost ten years when he surprised her with a yellow diamond ring after she left I'm A Celebrity.

She told Hello! magazine, ''I think every girl grows up thinking of their wedding. I'm a huge fan of love and romance.''

She continued, ''Marcel always laughs at me, saying I live in Disneyland and that I believe in fairytales!"

Marcel said, ''There's a big difference between a marriage and a wedding – and you've got to make sure you've met the right person.''

He continued, ''It's a lot of work. You need a friend as well as a lover; someone who understands you and has the same vision as you.''

We are so happy for this cute pair and can't wait to see the wedding snaps.

Mandy Moore has candidly opened up about her marriage to singer-songwriter Ryan Adams.

The pair were married for seven years, from 2009 to 2016, and Ryan has been the subject of claims of psychological abuse and sexual misconduct in a New York Times article that was published this month. 

Now Mandy has accused her former spouse of being psychologically abusive towards her while they were together. 

The 34-year-old opened up about it on Marc Maron’s WTF podcast which was recorded before the article and six other women had accused Ryan of varying degrees of abuse.

This is Us star said, ''I had no sense of self. I felt like I was drowning. It was so untenable and unsustainable and it was so lonely. I was so sad. I was lonely with him.”

She also said that he affected her career and that the relationship ''had an an entirely unhealthy dynamic”.

She said, ''I would do little jobs – it’s not like I completely stopped working. But it would become abundantly clear while I was working, things would completely fall apart at home.''

She continued, ''I couldn’t do my job because there was a constant stream of trying to pay attention to this person who needed me and wouldn’t let me do anything else.”

Mandy also took to Instagram to pen a powerful message.

She wrote, ''Speaking your truth can be painful and triggering but it’s always worth it. My heart is with all women who have suffered any sort of trauma or abuse. You are seen and heard. #sisterhoodforever.''

Her fans wrote messages of support and encouragement.

One said, ''You are a strong woman. The scary thing about an emotionally abusive relationship is that it takes self-esteem to leave…and that is exactly what your abuser has systematically broken down. Thank you for speaking up.'' 

While another wrote, ''Thank you for being an ally and a great example for your fans young and old. Beautiful and powerful inside and out.'' 

In the New York Times article, a 20-year-old female musician said Ryan had inappropriate conversations with her while she was 15 and 16 to which a lawyer for Ryan denies. 

We applaud Mandy for being so raw and honest about what she went through and hope that anyone in an abusive relationship has the strength to seek support.

Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom announced their engagement last week and we couldn’t be happier for the lovebirds.

They confirmed the joyous news on Instagram, but before Orlando popped the question he followed one particular tradition.

Proving that he’s an old romantic, the actor visited Katy’s family to ask for their permission to marry the Teenage Dream singer.

It is understood that the Pirates of the Caribbean star asked Katy's parents Mary and Keith Hudson if he could marry Katy before proposing last week.

A source told People, “Katy’s family knew he was proposing. He talked to her parents about it before.”

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by Orlando Bloom (@orlandobloom) on

The Part of Me singer was said to be stunned when her partner of three years got down on one knee.

The source added: “Katy was very surprised and shaking with happiness.”

Katy and Orlando are so excited and happy to be engaged, but the duo have yet to make any wedding plans. Friends say the pair are too busy enjoying their engagement.

“They are still busy enjoying and celebrating their engagement. They haven’t shared any wedding details yet. They are planning a big engagement party for all of their friends,” the source shared.

“It will be very special,” they continued.

It is believed Katy and Orlando had been talking about taking the next step in their relationship for quite some time.

The pair first got together after the 73rd Academy Awards in 2016. They went their separate ways in 2017 before reuniting last April.

Margot Robbie has broken her silence on the reoccurrig societal expectation that so many women face on a daily basis – presuming that once they are married, having a baby will naturally follow.

The wedding band is barely on women's fingers (if even) and people think it's acceptable to pry into their private live and fertility.

The 28-year-old addressed the problem when she was speaking to Radio Times, and admitted that she was fed up with the presumptions.

She drew parallels with her character Queen Elizabeth I in her new movie, Mary Queen of Scots , when she said, “It made me really angry; how dare some old guy to dictate what I can and can’t do when it comes to motherhood or my own body?''

She added, ''Unfortunately, it’s a conversation we’re still having.”

Margot wed filmmaker Tom Ackerley in 2016, and since then, the question of motherhood has been on many interviewers lips.

She said, ''I’m so angry that there’s this social contract. You’re married, now have a baby. Don’t presume. I’ll do what I’m going to do.“

She also went on to express her frustration at the lack of strong female roles, which resulted in her setting up her own production company, LuckyChap Entertainment. 

She said, ''I wasn't seeing many scripts where I wanted to play the female role – I always wanted to play the male role.''

She continued, ''The female roles are always a catalyst for the male story, and that’s unsatisfying. So I was like ‘Well, we’ll start making our own films because we can’t just sit around forever and wait for them to come along’.”

Hear, hear Margot – we like what she's saying.

They have kept us guessing with the have they/haven't they when it comes to their marital status but it seems that Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth have officially become man and wife.

Jennifer Aniston has had her fair share of headlines over her lengthy career in TV and movies.

But now, on the cusp of hitting her milestone 50th birthday, she says that she is perfectly content with how her life is – and her career is certainly going from strength to strength.

She sat down with ELLE magazine to open about her life, love and how she's won't let her age get in the way of having a family.

The public's fascination with her

The media have been obsessed with Jennifer since her days of Friends – when is she getting married? Is she pregnant? When will she get pregnant?

She believes that using marriage and children as the ultimate marker of female happiness is a way to disempower successful women.

She says, ''What quantifies happiness in someone’s life isn’t the ideal that was created in the ’50s. It’s not like you hear that narrative about any men.” 

She added, ''Why do we want a happy ending? How about just a happy existence? A happy process? We’re all in process constantly.''

Womanhood

Jennifer is keen to make sure that women know that they have other options – that being a wife and mother aren't the only ones.

She said, ''We live in a society that messages women: By this age, you should be married; by this age, you should have children. That’s a fairy tale. That’s the mould we’re slowly trying to break out of.''

How has the media's response to her not having kids affected her?

She said, ''It’s such a shallow lens that people look through. It’s the only place to point a finger at me as though it’s my damage – like it’s some sort of a scarlet letter on me that I haven’t yet procreated, or maybe won’t ever procreate.” 

Is a family something she wants?

She said,  "Who knows what the future holds in terms of a child and a partnership – how that child comes in…or doesn't? And now with science and miracles, we can do things at different times than we used to be able to."

Her marriages

The actor has been married twice – to Brad Pitt from 2000 to 2005, and Justin Thereoux from 2015 to 2017.

She believes that her unions have been successful.

She said, ''When they came to an end, it was a choice that was made because we chose to be happy, and sometimes happiness didn't exist within that arrangement anymore."

Sure, there were bumps, and not every moment felt fantastic, obviously, but at the end of it, this is our one life and I would not stay in a situation out of fear. Fear of being alone. Fear of not being able to survive. To stay in a marriage based on fear feels like you’re doing your one life a disservice. 

Social Media

Jennifer is not a fan of social media – and for good reason. 

She said, ''The one thing I have is maintaining this little circle of sanctity that’s my own.''

She added, ''If I’m sitting here posting something about my dogs or I’m Boomeranging my coffee mug in the morning, that’s just giving away one more piece of something that is mine."

Her relationship with her mum

Jen was famously estranged from her mum, former model Nancy Dow, for years.

She opens up about their strained relationship, which began when she was a kid and her mother was focused on Jennifer's physical appearance.

Jennifer said, ''It wasn't her fault, it's just the things she would teach me…It didn't instil a lot of security about how I felt about my physical appearance."

She continued, ''I think she was just holding on and doing the best she could, struggling financially and dealing with a husband who was no longer there. Being a single mom in the ’80s I’m sure was pretty crappy.”

We're sure 2019 will be another stellar year for Jennifer – and that she will continue to live her life according to her own rules.

It's hard not to love Ryan Reynolds.

He's funny, charming and handsome – and never afraid to poke fun at himself. 

Which is what he did when he made an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

The 42-year-old joked about his sex life with his wife Blake Lively, with whom he has two daughters – four-year-old James and two-year-old Inez.

A post shared by Ellen (@theellenshow) on

When asked about his seven-year marriage to Blake, the Deadpool actor said that they had only had sex twice, to conceive both of their kids.

Speaking of having his daughter Inez, he said, ''That happened from sex, just FYI.'' 

Ellen then asked, ''So you’ve only had sex the twice?''

And Ryan replied, ''Just the two times, yeah. It’s a mercenary job, it’s just clinical. Hoping for a third son.''

On hearing this, the audience went wild as they thought that it meant the couple were trying for a third child.

However, Ryan was to quick deny this, saying, ''No! They say you need to do 10,000 hours of anything you want to be an expert at it.'' 

When it comes to parenthood, Ryan says that it has changed him – for the better.

He revealed, ''I love it. It’s really kind of made me a better person, I think. I sort of miss being horrible.''

He continued, ''It’s hard. It’s always a challenge, two kids. I think of blinking right now as tiny little breaks all day, but it’s the dream. It’s the best, they’re my buddies. I love it.''

His two little girls are lucky to have a dad like him, that's for sure.

Men.

Can't live with 'em, can't live…hang on. .

Scratch that.

Why can't we live without them? 

All they really do is cause us stress, worry, irritation and heartache tbh.

And if you needed solid proof of that, than look no further than Mary Norris, who celebrated her 100th birthday on December 3. 

Born days after the First World War ended, Mary is the last surviving of her ten siblings and credits her long life to a few things. 

Number one, is the fact that she never married – and I think we can all agree that that lifted significant emotional worry and stress from her life.

What's that old quote again?

''I used to be married…but I’m much better now'' – rings true doesn't it? 

She was 22 when the Second World War started and she was working in a munitions factory in Edinburgh – in fact, she hasn't stepped out of Scotland in her whole life. 

Now living in St Andrew's Court, the housing manager Lynn McCusker said, ''Mary is always on the go. She’ll occasionally treat herself with a trip to the hairdressers, too.''

She added, ''She loves to dance and enjoys a sherry, so maybe that’s the secret.''

Sherry and avoiding all men?

Sounds like the dream life to us.

Posh and Becks are one of the the strongest couples in Celeb Land.

However, David has said that the pair aren'timmune to the rials and tribulations that come with trying to make marriage work.

While the  media have created headlines and speculation about his relationship for the past twenty years, he admits that he has gotten used to ignoring the bad stuff that is printed.

He said, “I’ve grown to ignore some of the negative stuff that is said.''

He continued, ''I think if you know each other well, if you know you’ve got great friends and great family behind you, the thing we have to do is protect our children and we are very proud of the family.”

So what about his nineteen-year union to Posh?

He says that, “marriage is always about hard work. Your children, they want your time and they deserve your time and we are hard working and we feel that is the right way to bring up our children to prove and to show to them you have to work really hard to be successful.''

The 43-year-old continued, ''we have been married for a long time now…you make difficult situations like travelling away, being away from each other, you make it work.”

She wore an exquisite Elie Saab Couture gown and bespoke Christian Dior shoes.

There was strewn lights and a redwood forest and we are simply in awe of Hilary Swank's stunningly beautiful Californian wedding. 

The Academy-Award winning actor tied the knot with her partner of two years, social venture entrepreneur Philip Schneider in the dream setting. 

The 44-year-old bride spoke about her romantic day to Vogue, gushing, “it was timeless. There is just no other way to describe it.'' 

“I was overwhelmed with such gratitude and thanks to be marrying the man of my dreams and to see all the people we love together in the middle of such a profound setting. It was truly a dream come true.”

Hilary's dad walked her down the aisle, only a few years after he was recovering from a lung transplant. 

Her wedding dress was – wait for it – made of 25 meters of Chantilly lace, eight meters of silk chiffon, and six meters of organza silk – and it took 150 hours to create.

OMG, is all we have to say to that. 

“I’ve loved Elie Saab for years and was thrilled to have him design my dress,” Hilary says.

“I wanted something romantic that felt as timeless as the redwood grove where we were to be married, and he delivered – designing something that far surpassed my greatest expectations. It was everything I imagined and more.”

The ethereal theme continued throughout the day, beginning with the couple marrying beneath a family of 800-year-old trees, and carrying on to the reception, which took place in a 100-year-old rustic barn, illuminated with hundreds of globe string lights.

Could this day get any more dreamy? 

It seems so, as after the reception, the newly married pair had a surprise for their guests.

They performed a Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers–style tap dance choreographed to Moby’s In My Heart.

“I doubt we completely pulled off the modern-day version of Fred and Ginger, but we had fun, and our family and friends seemed to enjoy it.''

Congratulations to the gorgeous couple – we wish them a lifetime of happiness together.

He said, “we don’t even say we’re married anymore. We refer to ourselves as life partners.''

“There’s no deal breakers. There’s nothing she could do – ever. Nothing that would break our relationship. She has my support till death, you know what I mean and it feels so good to get to that space where you’re not complaining, and worry, and demanding that a person be a certain thing,” he continued.

He wasn't the only one opening up about the inner workings of their marriage.

Jada spoke on Sway in the Morning on SiriusXM’s Shade 45 a few weeks ago. 

She explained, “here’s the thing about Will and I, it’s like, we are family, that’s never going down! It’s just not! Ever!”

“Because we are family –  take out all that whole marriage, relationship, crap –  at the end of the day, Will and I are family, I’m going to hold him down,” she added.

“It doesn't’t matter, all that relationship and what people think, ideas of a husband and a partner and all that, man, whatever, at the end of the day, that’s a man that can rely on me for the rest of his life, period.”

The comments on Will's post show how their fans are fully supporting their #relationshipgoalz life. 

''You guys are a gorgeous and admirable couple….and family. Well done and thank you for being a beautiful and inspirational example '' one gushed.

Another wrote, ''it hasn't always been easy but you guys stuck together and figured it out.''

This just goes to show that being (alarmingly) open about how hard you work at your marriage can work wonders for the relationship.

Wishin' you guys another happy 20 years!
