Celebrity romances aren’t exactly known to last, but there are those rare couples that seem destined to defy the odds. While we were sad to see some of our favourite Hollywood couples split in 2015, there was also lots to celebrate, including new births and romances. Here are our Top Celebrity Stories of 2015!
Caitlyn Jenner’s Big Reveal
It had long been rumoured that Olympian and Reality TV Star Bruce Jenner would be transitioning to female, but it wasn’t until the Vanity Fair cover was released in July 2015 that it was made official. While Glamour Magazine celebrated Caitlyn for her courage with the Woman of the Year award, there was criticism from a former winner (the husband of a 9-11 hero), who felt that her transition had overshadowed more important achievements.
The Bennifer Break
After ten years of marriage and three beautiful kids, it was sad to hear that Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner were breaking up. Rumour has it that Ben cheated with the nanny, but Ben vehemently denies it. But as proven by their recent Christmas vacation to Montana, they’re doing their best not to let their split affect their family. But don’t get your hopes up that they might be getting back together, they made sure they had enough bedrooms to sleep separately!
A Princess Is Born
Outside St. Mary’s hospital, crowds had spent weeks camping out, awaiting the arrival of William and Kate’s second child (with Prince George having arrived two years earlier, on July 22, 2013). While people suspected that it might be a girl, it wasn’t until she was born on May 2, 2015 that her gender and full name (Charlotte Elizabeth Diana) were revealed. Weighing in at a healthy 8lbs, 3 oz., Charlotte has been growing quickly. As seen in the latest photos from Sandringham, Charlotte is now a gleeful 7-month-old.
Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani
After 13 years of marriage, people were shocked to hear that Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale were breaking up. They seemed like one of the rare Hollywood couples whose relationship would stand the test of time. But with Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert having recently announced their divorce, rumours began to swirl that the two The Voice co-stars were dating, which was confirmed in early November. The good news for Miranda Lambert fans is that she’s moved on, and now dating musician Anderson East.
