There are the legends – Jay-Z and Beyoncé, David and Victoria – and then there are the newcomers – hello, John and Chrissy! We round up our favourite hot duos that are hitting the power couple scene. Hello, #relationshipgoals*!
Ryan Reynolds and Blake Likely
He’s funny and cute; she’s smouldering sexy. Together, they kill it on the red carpet and make the most adorable babies. Without a doubt, Ryan and Blake have nailed the whole power couple thing, what with their acting careers taking off at the same time. Plus, the fact that they met while on a double date with other people? Absolutely sweet.
John Legend and Chrissy Teigen
Seems like the two are hot on the radar when it comes to the most loved-up power couple. How cute are they together! Check out their Instagram posts and you’ll know what we mean – so much love and so unshamely sweet. It’s the year of John and Chrissy, whom have plenty going on with their careers too.
Jay Z and Beyoncé
Her personal fortune? $350 million. His? $810 million. Together, the Carter-Knowles team has a combined net worth of $1.16 billion – and counting! Even a cheating scandal can’t break the power couple who are now proud parents of three.
Kanye West and Kim Kardashian
You either love ‘em or hate ‘em but the fact remains that Kimye is making headlines as a power couple. They are style icons with huge fashion empires in their names – the couple even made it together on a Vogue cover and starred in a Balmain ad campaign, further sealing their status. Dare we even say they’re bigger than Beyoncé and Jay Z?
Duke and Duchess of Cambridge
Not only are the two a bona-fide royal couple, they are a power couple too! After all, these are the future King and Queen of England we’re talking about. Aside from their royal engagements, the duo is active in humanitarian work from AIDS to children’s welfare. She’s stylish always and he’s happy to let her have the spotlight. And they come across as humble folks who are happy to indulge in their two (soon to be three) children.
David and Victoria Beckham
Voted the second most popular power couple in Britain (after our royal couple, of course), both David and Victoria Beckham are used to the limelight whether as individuals or as a couple. We love how he’s always front row in all her fashion shows – with kids in tow. The two celebrated their 18th wedding anniversary July last year and shared throwback wedding photos on Instagram – aww, sweet!
“Having your own goals and independence is a goal for power couples as it builds self-esteem and eliminates insecurities,” says Dr. Arunan. “By feeling secure and confident, it will benefit a mature and understanding relationship due to you feeling complete and whole.”
