The life of a celebrity has its ups and downs. Of course, there’s the fame and fortune side, however, with all that good sometimes comes some bad. It’s no secret that celebrities rarely have any privacy, and many of them go to great lengths to keep their private life private. When it comes to their love lives, the world is particularly interested. No matter what, we always want to know who’s involved with who.
When celebrity couples get engaged, most of them try to keep their big days secret from the public, and many will go to great lengths to keep everything as private as possible. As a result, they’ve perfected the art of keeping things so secret, that the public doesn’t even know they’re married until weeks, or even months after, when they choose to share their news with the world.
10 Mila Kunis & Ashton Kutcher
When Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis got engaged, they kept the world on their toes when they would get married. In fact, they came up with a plan to throw the public off completely, and it worked! In January of 2015, they had people talking about them secretly getting married when Ashton posted a picture for the holidays, signing it “the Kutchers.” They kept the charade up for quite a few months, dancing around the subject of whether or not they got married. Little did the public know, they weren’t married after all. Instead, they officially tied the knot a few months later in July. They worked hard to keep the secret, notifying guests just 24 hours before where the wedding was taking place.
9 Kerry Washington & Nnamdi Asomugha
We all know how hard Kerry Washington works to keep her private life private, which is why it’s not surprising that she fought hard to keep her marriage and wedding day under wraps. Kerry married her fiance, NFL player Nnamdi Asomugha on June 24, 2013, and the world only found out when the media dug up their marriage certificate. The couple kept everything pretty low-key, and not going over the top at all with some lavish wedding. They got married in Hailey, Idaho. Kerry’s parents were the witnesses while Nnamdi’s sister, Chisaraokwu Asomgha officiated the wedding as she is a minister.
8 Kristen Bell & Dax Shepard
Kristen Bell and Dax Shephard are arguably one of our favorite couples to date. They were able to keep their marriage under wraps and their wedding day a secret by keeping everything extremely simple. For three years they managed to keep their super-secret ceremony hush-hush.
Eventually, they revealed photos that showed the two of them getting married in a courthouse. In October 2013 the two tied the knot in a Beverly Hills courthouse. The best part? The whole wedding cost $142 — including gas! Kristen calls it the world’s worst wedding, even though she wouldn’t change anything for the world.
7 Margot Robbie & Tom Ackerley
In 2016, Margot Robbie married her long-time boyfriend Tom Ackerley and a very top-secret wedding ceremony. The two got married in Australia that was in a top-secret location. They managed to keep things so under wraps that there aren’t many details about the ceremony to this day. There were only about 50 guests that were in attendance, and Margot wore an off-the-shoulder wedding dress with a lot of lace. Margot and Tom definitely did a good job keeping their big day out of the spotlight, that’s for sure.
6 Cardi B & Offset
Cardi B and Offset were one celebrity couple who really managed to keep their wedding a secret from the public. The two were married in September of 2017 in Atlanta, Georgia. The wedding was a spur of the moment thing as Offset simply woke up one morning and asked Cardi to marry him. They found someone who would come to their house to marry them, and as a result, the two had their ceremony in their bedroom.
Cardi didn’t have any makeup on, nor did she have a ring or even a wedding dress. There was only one guest at the ceremony — Cardi’s cousin — who was there to serve as a witness. Even though they had officially gotten married, Offset still officially proposed to Cardi a month later with an outrageously large ring.
5 Blake Lively & Ryan Reynolds
Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively are one of Hollywood’s favorite couples. Because of their popularity, the two wanted to make sure that they were able to have the wedding of their dreams without the media and the public ruining it. They got married on the grounds of Boone Hall Plantation in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina with only 70 guests. There were no phones allowed during the ceremony to ensure that nothing was leaked and that they were able to celebrate their day on their own terms.
4 Leighton Meester & Adam Brody
In 2014, Leighton Meester and Adam Brody surprised fans when they announced that the two had gotten married in a secret wedding ceremony. Fans were particularly surprised to find out that they had tied the knot, as the two have been a pretty top-secret couple from the very beginning. They never actually confirmed that they were officially dating, nor did they confirm that they had ever gotten engaged. Their secretiveness definitely paid off as they were able to shock the world with the wedding nuptials.
3 Cameron Diaz & Benji Madden
Fans were originally shocked when they found out that Cameron Diaz and Benji Madden were even together, as the two seem like a very unlikely couple in general. In 2015 the two tied the knot in a very secret ceremony. Opting to not have an over the top ceremony, the two got married in their huge Beverly Hills mansion just a few days before Christmas. The ceremony was held in the backyard, and they had just over 100 guests in attendance to witness them tie the knot.
2 Ed Sheeran & Cherry Seaborn
Ed Sheeran is definitely one to drop a surprise time and time again. In July of 2019, fans were shocked to find out that he had secretly wed his longtime love Cherry Seaborn. The ceremony was so secret that the two had gotten married a few months before they made the big announcement, as they actually had the ceremony in December of 2018. The wedding was very low-key, and even though we thought it would be filled with Ed’s celebrity friends, there were only about 40 people, most of them their longtime friends and family members.
1 Niecy Nash & Jessica Betts
Niecy Nash surprised the world when she took to social media to announce that she’s now a married woman. She and singer Jessica Betts tied the knot in a very secret ceremony that no one knew about.
