There are plenty of people who get married well after their twenties, especially in the celebrity world. Sometimes it's after swearing off serious relationships following a rocky divorce, or sometimes after deciding they never want to be tied down. Or, they just didn't meet the right person until they were 52, like George Clooney.
Whatever the reason, many of these stars fell head over heels after 40 and have never looked back — like Ellen DeGeneres, Barbara Streisand, Salma Hayek, and more. A few on this list are no longer together, but you can bet they have yet to throw in the towel on love.
This all being said, it's never too late to find love, and these stars prove that. You could fall for someone new at 40, 50, 60, or 70 — fortunately, age doesn't discriminate. They say age is but a number, and in the case of romance, that couldn't be more accurate.
Ahead are 30 celeb couples who found love later in life and why that's so special, in their own words. You'll love reading their stories, and hopefully you'll feel inspired to keep an open mind and an open heart.
