Shock celebrity couples we never saw coming – including Emily Ratajkowski and Eric Andre

Shock celebrity couples we never saw coming – including Emily Ratajkowski and Eric Andre

February 27, 2023

There are many ways to hard launch a new relationship. A sudden snap of your partner roaming the streets of Paris with a red heart emoji as the caption, a selfie of the pair of you sharing a string of spaghetti at the dinner table.

Or, if you’re Emily Ratajkowski, a saucy snap with your new boyfriend starkers on a sofa.

The hard launch isn’t about mystery or subtlety (read: your partner’s watch in the corner of a #foodie post), it’s confirming your relationship with a post seemingly out of nowhere. It’s loud and clear. No need for an Insta stalk.

It’s worked for a number of our fave celebrity couples including Adele, 34, who chose the hard launch tactic with beau Rich Paul in a photo carousel of solo shots finished with a photo of the pair of them in a photobooth.

Em Rata’s new bae, Eric Andre, shared their nudey launch on Instagram captioned: “Happy Valentine’s Day” and broke the internet at the same time. The comments section went wild but most importantly, their relationship was loudly and (very) clearly confirmed.

So while you may love or loathe their raunchy hard launch, here’s seven times celebs have shocked us with their relationship reveal.

JLo and Ben Affleck

For JLo and Ben Affleck, the hard launch of their rekindled romance was the way to go.

The pair’s love story seemingly came to a close back in 2004 before making it official once more in 2021.

Like Adele, JLo took to the photo carousel Insta feature to tease the reveal in celebration of her 52nd birthday, writing: “52 … what it do…” with a heart emoji.

Bennifer back together? You love to see it.

Elon Musk and Grimes

Arguably the internet’s Romeo and Juliet in their prime, Elon Musk and singer Grimes had a relationship reveal that reminds everyone we’re in some kind of simulation.

After months of speculation the pair were “quietly dating”, they put it all to bed with a Met Gala appearance and an inside joke that reads: “Rococo basilisk”.

They announced that they were expecting their first child in January 2020 and months later welcomed their baby boy, X Æ A-12 Musk.

Cher and Alexander “A.E.” Edwards

After years of being in her single don’t-need-no-man era, Cher confirmed she had a new man in her life through a simple tweet.

In November 2022, she penned: “One part of my life is SO AMAZING,” with a heart eyes emoji. Days later she was spotted holding hands with Edwards, who is 40 years her junior.

Kanye West and Julia Fox

Remember when Josh Safdie’s muse became… Kanye’s muse? I never will.

Juliye went official during Paris Fashion week 2022 serving us both Julia Fox’s iconic winged eyeliner and some double denim seemingly all at once.

Fox, 33, has since said the pair dated so she could get Kanye ‘off Kim Kardashian’s case’ which is equally as turbulent. A reveal for the ages, if anything.

Harry Styles and Olivia Wilde

The Don’t Worry Darling era of 2022 will never be forgotten, and where it may be thanks to whether or not Harry Styles did spit on Chris Pine, it’s also down to the chaotic reveal of the relationship between Harry and Olivia.

Harry Styles, 29, and Olivia Wilde, 38, floored fans when their relationship was revealed two months after she split from fiancé, Jason Sudeikis, and two months after filming commenced.

Kim Kardashian and Pete Davison

Cast your minds back to when Kim Kardashian said she was “basically DTF” with comedian Pete Davidson for a sec.

The relationship was kicked off with Kim’s Instagram post based on a meme from 2010 film, The Town. Kim and Pete posed on the floor alongside some candid selfies and the caption:

“Whose car are we gonna take?!”

Pete, 29, later revealed he had a tattoo in honour of Kim and her children, which was removed when they split after nine months.

Billie Eilish and Jesse Rutherford

Billie Eilish, 21, and boyfriend Jesse Rutherford, 31, went Insta official on Halloween last year and used their costumes to confirm their romance.

Using the spooky affair to poke fun at all the criticism of their age gap, Billie and Jesse decided to dress up as a baby and an old man for a Halloween party.

The internet went up in flames with fans saying they were ‘at a loss’ over the reveal. But it was, at its very least, shocking.

More shocking than a nudey couple’s snap that should have been left for the camera roll? Choose your fighter.
