IN two days, the world will be celebrating Valentine’s Day. So it’s just apt that SunStar Show will keep readers updated on who are engaged, who got married and who have broken up in the celebrity world this year. Barely a month and a half into 2018 but there are already so many celebrity couples updates. So keep up!
GWYNETH PALTROW & BRAD FALCHUK
Yes, Gwyneth Paltrow is engaged to another Brad--this time it’s Brad Falchuk, the 46-year-old co-creator of TV series “Glee.” “Personally, at midlife, I have tried to accept how complex romantic love can be,” Paltrow revealed in her Goop magazine’s Sex and Love issue. “I have decided to give it a go again, not only because I believe I have found the man I was meant to be with, but because I have accepted the soul-stretching, pattern-breaking opportunities that (terrifyingly) are made possible by intimacy.” The 45-year-old “Iron Man” actress was previously married to Coldplay’s Chris Martin from 2003 to 2016. She was engaged to Brad Pitt in 1997.
PARIS HILTON & CHRIS ZYLKA
It wasn’t clear when exactly Paris Hilton got engaged to actor Chris Zylka, but the 36-year-old hotel heiress shared the good news last Jan. 2. “I said Yas! So happy and excited to be engaged to the love of my life. My best friend and soulmate. Perfect for me in every way,” Hilton said of 32-year-old Zylka. “The Amazing Spider-Man” actor proposed to Hilton with a $2 million 20-carat engagement ring in Aspen, Colorado.
DARREN CRISS & MIA SWIER
“Glee” star Darren Criss, whose mother is a native of Cebu, asked “Glee” writer and producer Mia Swier this year to marry him. They have been together for more than seven years. “We’re goin' for it. To boldly go where neither of us has gone before. Engage,” the 30-year-old actor shared on social media.
PRINCESS EUGENIE & JACK BROOKSBANK
They have been together for seven years so it shouldn’t have been a surprise if wine merchant Jack Brooksbank asked Princess Eugenie to marry him. But the 27-year-old princess said she was still surprised. “The lake was so beautiful. The light was just a special light I had never seen,” the eighth in line to the British throne remembered the moments before the proposal. “I actually said this is an incredible moment, and then he popped the question, which was really surprising even though we have been together seven years. I was over the moon.”
RICKY MARTIN & JWAN YOSEF
Singer Ricky Martin revealed last month that he already married artist Jwan Yosef. But the party will be held belatedly. “I’m a husband, but we’re doing a heavy party in a couple of months, I’ll let you know,” Martin, 46, told E! News. “We exchanged vows, and we’ve (sworn) everything, and we’ve signed all the papers that we needed to sign, prenups and everything.”
JOHN STAMOS & CAITLIN MCHUGH
On Feb. 2, burglars stole $ 165,000 worth of jewelry from Caitlyn McHugh’s hotel room. But that didn’t stop the 31-year- old actress from looking like a princess to marry her prince charming, 54-year- old “Fuller House” actor John Stamos, the very next day. McHugh is pregnant with the couple’s first child.
MAXENE MAGALONA & ROB MANANQUIL
Singer and actress Maxene Magalona said “I do” to musician Rob Mananquil in a beach wedding in Boracay last Jan. 11. The couple creatively used the hashtag: #iROByouveryMAXX. It was a star-studded wedding with guests including Julia Montes, Miss World 2013 Megan Young and Mikael Daez. Magalona is the 31-year-old daughter of the late Filipino rapper Francis Magalona.
