12 People Who Are Only Famous Because Of Who They Dated

6. Chrissy Teigen: Music Video Magic


Chrissy Teigen is another woman who is super successful on her own but clearly got a career boost and became more famous because of her marriage. Chrissy is married to John Legend. The singer has admitted that it wasn’t love at first sight and that it took him a few years to realize how much he wanted to be with her. The two met when she was hired to be a model for one of his music videos. They ended up hooking up and keeping in touch although they didn’t start a serious relationship for a long time. John was away traveling and spending time with other women, but Chrissy never dated another guy in the meantime. She just tried to keep things cool and never pushed for a serious commitment. Eventually, they ended up together. Chrissy has continued to model and crack everyone up with her candid words and photos on social media, and she’s also known for her cookbook Cravings. The couple has an adorable daughter named Luna.

5. Ayesha Curry: Young Lovers


Ayesha Curry surely would have found plenty of success on her own, but being married to Warriors player Stephen Curry and catapulting to fame thanks to that certainly didn’t hurt. Ayesha started out doing some acting here and there before she started hosting a cooking show and writing her own cookbooks. Her most recently published cookbook is The Seasoned Life, which hit shelves in 2016. She didn’t actually start her cooking career until she had already gotten married and started a family. Her husband is the person who first encouraged her to start blogging about food, and she has found quite a lot of success in doing so. It makes sense that the couple would be so supportive of one another because they actually met when they were 14 and 15 years old at a youth group. They’ve been together ever since and got married in 2011. They have two children and live in the Bay Area.

4. Amal Clooney: Good People

Bollywood Life

Amal Clooney is an extremely successful woman in her own right, but she was not famous before she started dating George Clooney. George was a notoriously single man in Hollywood so the fact that he settled down with Amal really says something about her. George has shared that Amal is his soulmate and that he has “never been happier in a relationship by any stretch of the imagination.” He didn’t meet Amal until he was 52 years old. The two recently welcomed twins and have bonded their interest in doing good things for the world. Most recently, the couple made arrangements to send 3,000 Syrian kids to school through a $2.25 million partnership with UNICEF. Unlike some other people who get caught up in fame for the sake of attention, Amal has been given a wonderful opportunity to extend her positive reach on the world.
