When it comes to love, some people swear that love knows no bounds. Others remind us that love can sometimes be still blind. Still, these celebrity power couples are a testament to the fact that you really can find love at any age. Just like us, most celebrities spend their lives searching for a special someone and seeking true love.
So when these celebrity duos finally found each other, age was nothing but a number to them. Many decided to throw caution to the wind and didn’t let society get in their way.

Still, when you see them strutting down the red carpet together or grabbing a bite at a restaurant, these romantic duos might just warm your heart.
Rupert Murdoch and Jerry Hall
When this powerful couple first announced their relationship to the press, it caused a media stir for a few reasons. While this may be one couple that the tabloids love to hate, Rupert Murdoch and Jerry Hall didn’t let their glaring 25 year age gap or society stop them from marrying in 2016.
Before they met, Jerry Hall was famously married to Mick Jagger, and they had four children together before divorcing in 1999. Murdoch made a name for himself as a media mogul and he has six children from his previous marriages, as well as 13 grandchildren. He was married to three women before Hall.

René was actually Celine’s biggest fan when they first met. He believed in her singing potential so much, that he actually mortgaged his own house to help fund her first official album. The power duo later had a set of twins together and lived happily until René passed away in 2016. They had the funeral at the same place that the couple got married.

In 2018, the couple went on a romantic holiday to Hawaii. There are no signs of their relationship slowing down, so maybe we will see wedding bells for these two.
Back in 2008, Cook’s half-brother Darryl was his business manager at the time. He discovered that he and his wife embezzled millions of dollars from him.

Macron’s parents tried to keep them apart at first and sent him away to school in Paris.
That didn’t work too well, as they got married in 2007! She already has three children from her previous marriage, but they don’t have any children together. His charm might have worked on his wife, but it isn’t working so much on the people of France. He has an 8% approval rating.
