12 Celebrity Couples Reveal How They Knew They Found The One


Who doesn't love a good love story? Whether it's catching feelings ourselves or just watching others fall, there is just something really compelling about watching a human connection form.

It makes my heart happy when celebrities reveal they knew their partners were "the one." What can I say? It's just cute, and we could use a lot more cute in our lives.

While only time will tell if the following celebrity couples will get their happy ending, for now, in this moment, love is still alive and well.
