While Russell Brand and Katy Perry’s split on Friday put a damper on our celebratory mood over the weekend, we are happy to report that other famous couples are doing their best to renew our faith in romance. Here’s a little round-up of all the happy relationship news that happened over the weekend:
Johnny Weir and his lawyer boyfriend Victor Voronov got married. The figure skater tweeted, “I’m married!” on Saturday morning, and later told Real Housewives of New York vet Jill Zarin that they’d have a wedding this summer.
American Idol finalist James Durbin married his longtime girlfriend, Heidi Lowe, on Saturday in Santa Cruz. Their 2-year-old son, Hunter, was the ring bearer, and 85 guests attended the festivities, People reports.
Minka Kelly and Derek Jeter may have reunited, or they may just be really close friends who hang out together in Paris. The pair, who split back in August, were spotted at Le Musée d’Orsay together on Thursday and having breakfast together on Friday, according to the New York Post. Onlookers said they were staying in separate hotels, but they look pretty cozy in photos.
Then, of course, there were all those great engagement announcements from the past week: Aretha Franklin and Willie Wilkerson, LeBron James and Savannah Brinson, Steven Tyler and Erin Brady, John Legend and Chrissy Teigen, Bridesmaids actor Chris O’Dowd and British TV personality Dawn Porter, Wynonna Judd and Cactus Moser, American Idol alum Danny Gokey and Leyicet Peralta, Matthew McConaughey and Camila Alves, and Michael Jordan and Yvette Prieto.
Happy 2012, lovebirds, and thanks for cheering us up!
