Showbiz may consist of people that we’ll almost never be able to name one by one, but plenty of those in the industry know where and how to find each other! When they do, these celebrity couples can sometimes have you wondering why they didn’t date sooner. Just this year alone, five of these celeb couples decided that 2023 is the year for them to let their fans know (or hint) that something’s going on with their romantic lives. And the people they chose to be seen with are just as well-known!

Here are some of them.

5 Celebrity Couples Who Started Dating in 2023:

Kendall Jenner and Bad Bunny

Fans were — and some still are — talking about Kendall Jenner and Bad Bunny when it was reported that the two had a double date with Justin and Hailey Bieber. A few days later, the model and Coachella headliner were said to have dined together in a Beverly Hills restaurant. Though Kendall Jenner and Bad Bunny left separately, their fanbase is convinced that they are seeing each other — albeit in secret!

Selena Gomez and Drew Taggart

Though Selena Gomez has been the darling of the web recently — for several other reasons — not everyone is quick to forget that the songstress was seen holding hands with Drew Taggart of The Chainsmokers in NYC last month. However, it may take quite a bit of time before (or if) the singers will ever reveal their relationship as Selena Gomez is on social media hiatus right now. But as long as they’re happy, amirite?

Emily Ratajkowski and Eric André

Perhaps the way to Emily Ratajkowski’s heart is by making her laugh! Since her divorce from Sebastian Bear-McClard, she had a fling with SNL comedian Pete Davidson. But the short-lived romance didn’t seem to dampen the model’s dating spirit! Because recently, she and Eric André confirmed that they’re seeing each other after the latter posted a “thirst trap” photo of them on Instagram last Valentine’s Day.

Sam Smith and Christian Cowan

2023 seems to be Sam Smith’s year — and we’re not even past the first quarter of it! Not only is the Unholy singer making news for his red carpet attires and winning Grammys, but Sam Smith also had designer Christian Cowan stroll SoHo alongside him this year. So far, neither of them has commented on their relationship — and whether or not they’re in one.

Rozonda Thomas (or “Chilli”) and Matthew Lawrence

Back in the 90s, Chilli (and her fellow TLC members) made it clear that she “doesn’t want no scrub” and it seems like Matthew Lawrence passed the vibe check — as the PDA they’ve been displaying has not only been very public, it’s also been very romantic, and sometimes, risqué. In fact, the actor doesn’t mind sharing that he and Chilli have been trying to start a family together!

Love Is in the Air for Celebrity Couples!

Valentine’s Day may be over, but some of the celebrity couples we listed can still feel that love (or heat) is in the air! Some may have surprised fans when they stepped out with their new beau, but others sure love to tease us for the confirmation we want to celebrate!
