While interracial dating was looked down upon for a long time, it’s completely common to see mixed couples walking down the street today. In Hollywood, many celebrities of various backgrounds have found themselves in the arms of someone completely different, and it’s a beautiful thing! We take a look at 10 of the most popular celeb couples that can make even the harshest skeptics out there believe that love truly knows no boundaries.
The first couple on this list are one of the most iconic interracial couples of all time, and their remarkable beauty is something to behold.
10. David Bowie & Iman
10 years after his divorce from Mary Angela Barnett, the late David Bowie met model Iman, and the two fell hard for each other. In 1992, the beloved couple got married in a private ceremony. In 2000, they gave birth to their only child Alexandria “Lexi” Zahra Jones. The couple split their time between New York City and London.
9. Chrissy Tiegen & John Legend

8. Khatira Rafiqzada & Michael Ealy
Actor Michael Ealy, who is best known for his work in the Barbershop film series, married his longtime girlfriend Khatira Rafiqzada in October 2012. The two have a son and daughter together.

The next couple have been keeping people guessing for years if they’re still an item.

6. Kendra Wilkinson & Hank Baskett
Six months after dating, former Playboy model Kendra Wilkinson and former NFL player Hank Baskett got engaged. While most marriages that seem rushed might looked doomed, the two have been happily married for eight years, and they have two beautiful children. Their marriage took place at the Playboy Mansion, which is the home of her ex Hugh Hefner.
5. Zoe Saldana & Marco Perego
Actress Zoe Saldana and painter Marco Perego took only three months to go from dating to getting hitched in London. In 2014, the happy couple welcomed twin sons Bowie and Cy, and in January 2017, little brother Zen was born. Zoe and Marco plan to raise their children to be bilingual.
The next couple managed to top the previous two in terms of marriage.
4. Lamar Odom & Khloé Kardashian
Former basketball star Lamar Odom and personality Khloé Kardashian met each other at a party and were married a month later. Things got very rocky for the two, and they split up in 2013. Their divorce became final in 2016. While they didn’t have kids, the two did adopt a pet boxer during their time together.
3. Kobe & Vanessa Bryant
Since 2001, Kobe Bryant has been married to Vanessa Laine, and the two have weathered some major storms in their relationship. Bryant’s parents were displeased at their son for marrying someone who wasn’t black, which led to the basketball star not speaking to them for a number of years. The 2003 sexual assault case nearly tore the couple apart, but they managed to stay together through it all. In December 2016, they welcomed their third child into the family.
2. Adam Housley & Tamera Mowry
