“When people say you guys have such a perfect life, I want to scream and tell them no one’s perfect.”
We’ve had some crushing blows when it came to celebrity breakups this year. There were some couples that we sort of saw coming while others just blew us away. We couldn’t imagine why they would break up and the secrecy behind the breakups often had us wondering what really went on behind the scenes to cause the breakup. Some of these couples shocked us because they were our #relationshipgoals and it made us wonder if some relationships are just an act in front of the camera. There have certainly been some disappointments for 2018 as we saw some of our favorite couples split up. It sucks because these relationships are the ones that we hope will work out.
But then there are the new couples out there that are also getting engaged, these are the ones that show us that there is a possibility that a celebrity relationship that can go beyond a few years. It’s always exciting to see a Hollywood couple become engaged because we know that means wedding photos in the future and who doesn’t love seeing a celebrity wedding come together. They have millions at their disposal and we love to see the amazing weddings they put together. We’ve had plenty of ups and downs this year with celebrity breakups and engagements. We have the list that shows what’s been going on this year, so far! Check out these 10 celeb couples who got engaged in 2018 and 10 we didn’t expect to break up.
20. BROKE UP: JERSEY SHORE RONNIE ORTIZ AND JEN HARLEY
If you are a fan of Jersey Shore, then you probably recognize Ronnie Ortiz. One of the breakups of 2018 was the breakup between Ortiz and his longtime girlfriend, Jen Harley. The two have been in an on again off again relationship and they are parents to their new daughter Ariana Sky.
“They tried to make it work, but they just set each other off and fight constantly,” the source said. “It’s better they are apart and they are slowly realizing that. It will be better for their daughter in the end.”
As of Mother’s Day, however, there was a bit of a change as eyewitnesses saw the two together. Sources are saying that they are back together. “They’re trying to make it work for the sake of their daughter,” the insider told Us on May 15. That’s an honorable thing to do, but relationships that are just held together for the children rarely last the long term. Sometimes it’s best for children involved for the parents to separate especially if they are fighting all the time. Ortiz also had this unpleasant post on social media about Jen and it makes us wonder how two people can make things work after Ronnie’s terrible and nasty comment about Jen on social media, which he has since deleted. “Not all people can be saved when they are so far gone. All you can say you did ur best and keep it moving.”
19. ENGAGED: LONG-TIME BACHELOR HUGH GRANT GETS ENGAGED
Well, it’s about time! Did Hugh Grant actually think that he could be a bachelor forever? Maybe he was hoping he and Elizabeth Hurley would eventually reunite. He’s tying the knot at the age of 57 with his longtime love Anna Eberstein. He’s been with the Swedish lady for years and she’s also the mother of his three children, so it’s a wonder that he didn’t get engaged sooner. The couple have an 18-year age difference between them. Considering he’s almost 60, this will be the first time that Grant has ever been married. They got engaged and married all in the same year. They had a low-key ceremony this month at Chelsea register office. It wasn’t a big lavish wedding for Grant, it was quick and painless. An onlooker said,
“It looked like a small affair, just a few friends and family.”
We have to wonder why they didn’t go all out for the wedding but maybe it’s just not their thing. “They both looked delighted, smiling at passers-by and laughing with the children. It was obviously a lovely day for all involved.” Many people believed that Grant would never settle down so maybe the low-key wedding was to ensure he wouldn’t freak out and bail on a lavish wedding.
