#30. Alec & Hilaria Baldwin

The couple started dating in 2011 and have been inseparable since then. They also have four children ages 5 and younger and rumor has it, they’re not ruling out baby #5! An interesting note is that their children honor their mother’s roots and are fluent in Spanish!

“Our kids, especially the older ones, who speak more, are fullly bilingual,” Alec explained. “The concern and the passion that my wife has —and me too— for tow languages is essential. (…) Spanish is fundamental,” he continued.

#29. Solange Knowles & Alan Ferguson

Solange Knowles, Beyoncé’s baby sister, has had a thriving career as an actress, singer, songwriter and record producer. After divorcing her first husband, Daniel Smith, she has been dating Alan Ferguson, who is 23 years her senior, since 2008.

They were first spotted together in 2008 at an art gallery and the singer and the video director have been happily married for 5 years now. Something that you might not know is that they made two music videos together and let me tell you, they’ve done an amazing job!

Sadly, the next couple on our list is nothing compared to them.

#28. David Foster & Katharine McPhee

David Foster is a Canadian music legend. He’s made music for basically everyone in the industry, which is what led him to meet Katharine McPhee. They met in 2006 when she was a contestant on American Idol and he was a guest mentor.

When they met, Foster was 58, and McPhee was only 23. Although their whopping 34-year age difference has raised many eyebrows, the couple is closer than ever. And they’ve been madly in love ever since.

#27. Harrison Ford and Calista Flockhart

Harrison Ford (76) met the love of his life, Calista Flockhart (54) at the 2002 Golden Globes. The happy pair has been married since 2010, and don’t even notice their 22-year age gap.

I’m in love. Romantic love is one of the most exciting and fulfilling kinds of love and I think there is a potential for it at any stage of your life.”  Said Ford.

I keep forgetting that he’s 22 years older than me,’” Calista told Hello! Magazine. “It doesn’t factor into our relationship at all.

#26. Bruce Willis & Emma Heming

Bruce Willis (54) and Emma Heming (32) actually met at the gym, and have been together ever since then. Despite the 23-year age difference, the pair are like two teenagers in love. They prove that age truly has no number!

I spent the last 10 years single and, for the most part, unhappy. In a dark place. I never thought that being with someone else was the answer. Then I started hanging around Emma, and on a day-to-day basis my life became much happier.Willis told W Magazine.

#25. David Cross & Amber Tamblyn

David Cross married Amber Tamblyn when he was 48 and she was 29. There’s 19 years between them, but that’s never been an issue. Amber said in an interview that she fell in love with him on the first date.

And where did they meet? On an airplane, of all places. Cross said he felt some “aggressive staring” coming from Tamblyn’s direction, so he switched seats to sit next to her. And they’ve been in love ever since. Adorable!

#24.  Michael Douglas & Catherine Zeta-Jones

When news broke that Michael Douglas and Catherina Zeta-Jones were dating, the public was shocked, as he is 25 years older than her. But they have proved everyone wrong, as they’ve been married for over 18 years now, and they’re stronger than ever.

The happy couple met at a movie festival, where Douglas approached her and asked her for a drink. Apparently, their first date didn’t go so well, because Douglas told Catherine that he’d be the father of her children, and that freaked her out. Later, he won her over with an apology and some flowers, wow!

#23. Sylvester Stallone & Jennifer Flavin

Stallone was 42 when he started dating 19-year-old Flavin, and their story dates back 30 years. But at the beginning, things weren’t as happy as they’re now. After 3 years of dating, Stallone abruptly ended the relationship, because he started dating someone else. But their romance wasn’t over.

#22. Eddie Murphy & Paige Butcher

The couple, who has a 19-year age gap, has kept a low profile since they started dating in 2012. Neither of them has social media accounts, and they’ve kept most of their relationship under wraps. But when the couple was expecting their first child, Izzy Oona Murphy, they decided to reveal their relationship to the world.

As of today, the couple has two children together. These are Paige’s only children, but Murphy is rather experienced in that field, as he has 10 children in total with 5 different women.

#21. Dane Cook & Kelsi Taylor

47-year-old Dane Cook has been dating 21-year-old Kelsi Taylor for two years. But the couple doesn’t mind the age gap at all.

While the two have been documenting their relationship and time together on their respective Instagram accounts, how the couple met is a bit of a mystery, because the couple has decided not to reveal how they met. All we know is that they’re crazy in love.

#20. Elon Musk & Grimes

To the surprise of many, Elon Musk and Grimes went public at the 2018 Met Gala. The 16-year difference has no effect on their relationship, according to the happy couple. But how is it that this wonderfully odd couple met? It was all thanks to a nerdy joke.

Apparently, Musk wanted to tweet a joke about AI, but Grimes had already made it. Grimes combined “Roko’s Basilisk” a thought experiment that questions the risks of AI, with the art movement “Rococo”, making the pun “Rococo Basilisk”. Musk came up with that joke too late and contacted Grimes about it, and that’s how their super nerdy love came about.

#19. Ronnie Wood & Sally Humphreys

Rolling Stones guitarist Ronnie Wood has been dating Sally Humphreys, who’s 31 years younger than him, since 2012. Sally is Ronnie’s third wife, and at  36, she is now “grandmother” of Ronnie’s grandchildren.

The couple welcomed their first child in 2012, making Martin a first-time dad at 67. Having a young child at this age is “fantastic,” Martin says. “I think if I’d had a child earlier, I would have been a lousy father because I would have misplaced my attention on my career.

The next couple on our list is very famous, and not because of their age gap.

#17. Kelsey Grammer & Kayte Walsh

Kelsey Grammer and Kayte Walsh made headlines when they started dating, and not because of their 25-year age difference. When they met, Grammer was married to Beverly Hills Housewives star Camille Grammer.

Beatty told TODAY‘s Matt Lauer that while his fans were surprised by their 1992 marriage, he wasn’t shocked by his decision to finally settle down.

It didn’t really surprise me,” he said. “I always felt I wasn’t trying to avoid marriage, I was trying to avoid divorce. I had no doubt when I met Annette that it was time to get married.”

#11. Patrick Stewart & Sunny Ozell

Patrick Stewart (78) and Sunny Ozell (39) have an incredible 39-year age gap between them. And, unlike the rest of the couples on our list, they’ve admitted it can be weird sometimes.

My father-in-law is five years younger than me but he calls me son,” he told the Daily Mail.

Sunny, however,  said the age gap was irrelevant:

He is so youthful and I guess I’m kind of an old worry wart so we bridge the gap. It doesn’t come up much. He’s in better shape than me, which infuriates me.”

#10. Mel Gibson & Rosalind Ross

Although Mel Gibson (63) and Rosalind Ross (28) have been together since 2015 and have a child together, Lars, the couple has faced some scrutiny over the years. But the couple has always shut down the rumors that their 35-year age gap is a problem for them.
