Warm, fuzzy love curls your toes and fills you up with overwhelming happiness – and more often than not, you’re grinning if for the only reason that you are adored by another soul completely and without limitation. Love is a fickle, wonderful thing, it’s an emotion we should all be lucky to experience at some point in our lives. Yes, even celebrities fall in sappy love (sometimes more than once because we’re all only human). So forget about updating your online dating profile for a minute because these celebrity love stories are about to melt your heart, make you laugh, and have you reaching for a Kleenex. Although we do need to point out that not all of the romantic tales here end up with happily ever after.
