AceShowbiz - Within the last month alone, two young celebrity couples got engaged after only several weeks of dating. While Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin's as well as Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson's engagements shocked everyone, they're obviously not the first Hollywood stars who sealed their love with wedding proposals after only short times of dating. People's reactions were varied, from supporting them and wishing them happiness to being skeptical and saying they're too young to get married.
But some other couples, who had whirlwind romances, have maintained stable relationships after getting hitched. So, before you make a bet on how long Justin and Hailey's as well as Ariana and Pete's future marriages would last, let's take a look at six celebrity couples who prove that whirlwind romance could also work.
If you didn't know how it started, you might not have the slightest idea that Reese Witherspoon and Jim Toth make it into this list. The "Legally Blonde" star and the talent agent were reported dating in February 2010 and announced their engagement in December of the same year. Three months later, they tied the knot at Libbey Ranch in Ojai, California. They welcomed a son, Tennessee James Toth, in September 2012 and have barely been hit with rumors.
Young and famous, "Twilight Saga" movies star Nikki Reed and "The Vampire Diaries" alum Ian Somerhalder still had a lot of time to enjoy the single life. But they traded it for stability and a new family when they said "I do" in April 2015, just three months after they got engaged and less than a year after they started seeing each other. They became first-time parents when their child, a daughter, Bodhi Soleil, was born on July 25, 2017.
There was a time when people would raise their eyebrows when Sofia Vergara and Joe Manganiello's names were mentioned together. But the "True Blood" alum, who has always had a crush on the "Modern Family" star, managed to make her fall head over heels after their first date. They were engaged six months later and got married in Palm Beach, Florida on November 21, 2015 with 400 guests in attendance without a single leak to the press.
Before meeting Amal Alamuddin, George Clooney didn't believe in marriage following his failed relationship with ex-wife Talia Balsam which in ended in 1993. But it only took 6 months of dating for the "ER" alum to know that the human rights lawyer was the one. Their wedding took place in September 2014. Now they are parents to one-year-old twins, Ella and Alexander, and living a private yet romantic life.
Carey Mulligan and Marcus Mumford didn't seem like young lovers who liked to play around with love. But when you know it, you know it. The British actress and the Mumford & Sons frontman were childhood pen pals who lost touch and reconnected as adults. Five months was all it takes for them to decide to start a new family. They married on April 21, 2012 and welcomed their first child, a daughter named Evelyn Grace in 2015. The notoriously private couple's second child, a son named Wilfred, was born in August 2017.
Cameron Diaz and Benji Madden were one of those unlikely couples, but sometimes love can be found in the less expected place. The "Bad Teacher" star had longterm relationships with Matt Dillon, Jared Leto, Justin Timberlake and Alex Rodriguez, which never resulted in marriage. However, after just five months of dating, Cameron and Benji got engaged. They wed 17 days after the engagement. The couple was introduced to each other by Nicole Richie, who is married to Benji's twin brother and Good Charlotte bandmate, Joel Madden.
