20 Photos Of Celeb Couples Holding Hands That Are Just Too Cute

A picture is worth a thousand words, and in the case of some notoriously tight-lipped celebrities, photos of celebrity couples holding hands speak volumes. From Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to Taylor Swift and Joe Alwyn, seeing some of world's most famous couples show subtle PDA can bring a smile to their fans' faces. If you've ever seen how entire stadiums scream when Beyoncé and JAY-Z hold hands while performing, then you understand: the power of touch is pretty powerful.

And not that anyone needs a scientific reasoning to grab their partner's palm, but several studies have shown that hand-holding generates positive effects. For instance, if you identify as a woman, this simple gesture can calm your nerves and decrease your stress, according to a 2006 study from University of Virginia. And you know how sometimes, when getting a flu shot or having your blood drawn, you hold someone's hand to calm down? According to the the 2017 study published by the University of Colorado at Boulder, if you enlist your partner to be the hand-holder in that situation, it could literally decrease the sensation of pain. So, in addition to providing high-key cute content, these celebs are getting complimentary health benefits, too. What could be sweeter than that?

Relationships — 20 Photos Of Celeb Couples Holding Hands That Are Just Too Cute

1. Lili Reinhart & Cole Sprouse

Who doesn't love a good on-screen-couple-turned-real-couple story? Such was the case for Riverdale costars Lili Reinhart and Cole Sprouse. The two met on the set of the CW show in 2016 and the rest, as they say, is history. They gave their fans a bit of a scare when some breakup rumors that started floating around July but Lili more than dispelled those with a loving Instagram message on actor's birthday in August. Their love story lives on, courtesy of this adorable photo of the young couple at the Met Gala in May 2019.

2. Kim Kardashian West & Kanye West

Kim and Kanye are the ultimate power couple. The reality star and rapper were friends for years before they began to date in 2012, tied the knot in 2014, and went on to welcome four children. Kim was still pregnant with her first child North in this photo taken at the 2013 Met Gala. Now, it feels odd to think there even was a time when Kim and Kanye weren't together.

3. Taylor Swift & Joe Alwyn

Once upon a time, Taylor Swift's breakup songs were widely talked and joked about in showbiz. Those sexist days seemingly ended in 2016, when famous singer met and fell in love with British actor Joe Alwyn, who is thought to be the inspiration for several songs on her 2019 album Lover. The couple keeps a super low-profile but even they can't escape the watchful eye of the paparazzi for too long. So, once in a blue moon, fans are blessed with a photo of the two together, like this one snapped in October, as the pair was leaving a Saturday Night Live after-party.

4. Shawn Mendes & Camila Cabello

Officially together only since July 4, 2019, these two have already provided plenty swoon-worthy content to the singers' fans. Their recent court-side makeout session was the talk of the internet, and who can forget their VMAs performance of “Señorita?” This photo of the couple strolling through Brooklyn in September is relatively modest, but cute nonetheless.

5. Blake Lively & Ryan Reynolds

The couple that jokes with each other, stays together, they say, and Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds are living proof of that. Can anyone recall the last time two posted a non-taunting birthday tribute to one other? Me neither. But maybe that's exactly what their secret it. They look as loved-up as ever at the amfAR Gala New York red carpet in 2016.

6. Justin & Hailey Bieber

Whirlwind romance is certainly one way to characterize Justin and Hailey's love story. The two tied the knot twice, first in a 2018 New York City courthouse ceremony, and then again in a more traditional 2019 South Carolina wedding. The It couple first met one another as teenagers, dated on and off, and eventually made the ultimate commitment to each other — marriage. On top of their cute Instagrams, the two spoil their fans with some next-level street style snaps. Case in point: this photo taken in New York in 2018.

7. John Legend & Chrissy Teigen

She's the author of a cookbook, a model, and one of the funniest people to follow on Twitter. His artistic talents have earned him an EGOT. Together, they have two incredibly cute children and a decades-long love story. Not much more to say about John Legen and Chrissy Teigen,but that if they ever broke up, the world would never be OK again. Imagine, for one, no more stylish couple's photos from the two, like this one, from their New York stroll in 2018.

8. Nick Jonas & Priyanka Chopra

This actress and singer are rarely shy about PDA. The couple first connected through Twitter and met at the 2017 Vanity Fair Oscars after-party. They only dated about two months before getting engaged. But, then again, when you know, you know. And it seems like the two knew they were meant to be almost right away. Look how happy the two look in this photo taken in Los Angeles in February.

9. Sophie Turner & Joe Jonas

Joe was known as quite the ladies' man, with a dating history that included Camilla Belle, Taylor Swift, Demi Lovato, and Gigi Hadid. But then he met the Queen in the North and it all changed. The couple got engaged in 2017, and tied the knot in France almost two years later. The two are serving style inspiration while out in New York, in this photo from August.

10. Prince Harry & Meghan Markle

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex started making headlines in late 2016, when they were first rumored to be dating, and haven't stopped since. They dated long-distance across the Atlantic Ocean, navigated professional differences, and handled theBritish tabloids' racist treatment of the actress. In May 2018, they had a beautiful, televised wedding ceremony, and in 2019 welcomed a son, Archie. And while the royals rarely show any form of PDA, the two were seen holding onto one another at the London premiere of The Lion King in July.

In March, the pair got engaged, promising a lifetime of swoon-worthy moments to their fans — like this red carpet shot from the 2018 VMAs, where the singer famous performed a medley of her hits (with her beau in the front row, recording it all!).

They have a love story fit for this generation. The relationship started with a tweet, continued with a DM, and solidified at a pre-Emmys party. In July, the couple got engaged on a private island during a romantic vacation in Fiji. No biggie. The two are too cute even when they're just casually strolling down the street, like in this photo taken in Los Angeles in November.

15. Victoria & David Beckham

I could go on and on about how perfect these two — who tied the knot back in 1999 — are for each other, but their love can be demonstrated with just one moment from Vogue's 73 Questions with Victoria Beckham. When asked who, dead or alive, she'd want to have dinner with, the designer simply answered, "My husband." And then my heart exploded. Just look at this OG power couple bringing style and love to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding in 2018.

16. Barbara Palvin & Dylan Sprouse

Dylan and Barbara are young, cool, talented, and beyond beautiful. They started dating in 2018. Now, they live in Brooklyn together and star in fashion campaigns for The Kooples in their free time. Plus, just look at their coordinating outfits at Milan Fashion Week in September. The Victoria's Secret Angel and former Disney star are a match made in heaven.

17. Camila Mendes & Charles Melton

I swear, CW is like Hinge for young actors. These two, who officially confirmed their relationship in October, don't make as much noise as their fellow Riverdale co-stars, Lili Reinhart and Cole Sprouse, do. But Camila and Charles are just as incredibly cute. From touching Instagram posts to lovely red carpet couple moments, like this one from the world premiere of The Sun Is Also A Star, these two are the ultimate OTP.

18. Ansel Elgort & Violetta Komyshan

The Goldfinch actor and his dancer girlfriend have been together since meeting in high school. While the two did break up for a few months in 2014, they've been back together and going strong ever since. This little gem was taken in 2012, as the pair attended a Target event in New York City.

20. Carbi B & Offset

They've had ups (like a secret 2017 wedding) and they've maybe had some downs (like Offset's alleged string of mistresses, which were rumored to cause the pair to nearly divorce in 2018). But the hip-hop power couple overcame their reported challenges and are going strong. In 2018, the rapper gave birth to the couple's first child, baby girl Kulture.
