Well, at the very least, they’re the biggest engagements of last year likely leading to the biggest weddings of this year. Last year we saw some big names tie the knot including the much-talked about pop couple, Katy Perry and Russell Brand. This year is set to be even bigger when none other than the most famous Prince in the world weds his bride. Check out which couples will (most likely) be following suit with a walk down the aisle of their very own.
Prince William of Wales and Kate Middleton
College sweethearts since schooldays at Scotland’s University of St. Andrews, William and Kate have been together for eight years. Finally putting the swirling rumors and relentless media to rest, the super couple is set to wed at Westminster Abbey on April 29, 2011, where the monumental day has been declared a bank holiday in celebration.
Natalie Portman and Benjamin Millepied
Dancer meets actress and its love. Ballet dancer Benjamin Millepied was brought onboard to choreograph and act in Portman’s latest film Black Swan. The smitten couple met on set in 2008 and by New Years Eve of 2009 they were an item. Their latest double whammy announcement informed fans that the two are not only engaged, but they’re also set to be parents this year.
Reese Witherspoon and Jim Toth
The Creative Artists Agency doubles as a matchmaking service. Though Witherspoon is represented by the Creative Artists Agency, talent agent Jim Toth did not represent her, which left a romantic relationship completely open to them both. The two were first spotted together in early February of 2010 and by December 28, they announced their engagement to the world.
Zoe Saldana and Keith Britton
The star of Avatar, Zoe Saldana, has determined that now is the right time to permanently settle in with her longtime boyfriend, read 10 years, Keith Britton. Britton is a fellow actor and CEO of My Fashion Database. No immediate wedding plans as of yet and judging by the slow and steady courtship, the wedding could take place anytime between now and 2020.
Simon Cowell and Mezhgan Hussainy
Britain’s notoriously biting wit made a name for himself in America with his long stint on American Idol. More than just fame came out of that show as he also met makeup artist and future wife Mezhgan Hussainy on the set. The longtime bachelor may have met his match in his fellow fame-hungry fiance. May they happily conquer the reality TV world together.
Michael Buble and Luisana Lopilato
Jazz singer Michael Buble has found true love with his young Argentine actress/model Luisana Lopilato. The two fell for each other in November of 2008 when Buble’s record company threw him an after concert party in Buenos Aires. For Luisana, he co-wrote “Haven’t Met You Yet,” in which she appears in the music video. It’s sweet music for these lovebirds from here on out.
Jane Krakowski and Robert Godley
Together for more than a year, the comedy actress of hit shows Ally McBeal and 30 Rock is engaged to the British designer and co-founder of the Psycho Bunny menswear line. Jane and Robert took their relationship to the serious level over the holidays, but there have been no major details on when the two will officially make the vow.
America Ferrera and Ryan Piers Williams
The Hollywood couple: director Ryan Williams proposed to his girlfriend America Ferrera of Ugly Betty fame in 2010. The young couple met while attending the University of Southern California where Ryan cast America in his student film. Glued together ever since, the pair is set to be one of the few strong couples on the Hollywood scene.
