Celebrity hookups and first dates: How your favorite stars met and got together

Wonderwall Logo By Marisa Laudadio of Wonderwall | Slide 1 of 64: Every romance has a beginning. Whether it's sweet, funny or messy, it's fascinating to learn the story of how people met -- or what happened on their first date. Join Wonderwall.com as we take a look at how, in their own words, dozens of your favorite stars got together with their significant others for the very first time... starting with music's reigning power couple. Beyonce had previous revealed that she met husband JAY-Z, who's 12 years her senior, when she was 18 and started dating him when she was 19, but how, exactly, they got to know one another -- let alone where they went on their first date -- was a secret... until Jay rapped about it on their 2018 joint album, "Everything is Love." Producers Cool and Dre told Rolling Stone, "I remember the night he pulled us into his studio and played it for us, he was like, 'No one knows the story of how we met. This was the first time I'm ever telling this story,'" Dre recalled. Us Weekly reported that on the track "713" -- the numbers are the area code for Bey's native Houston -- Jay reveals he met his future wife at MTV's March 2000 Spring Break festivities in Cancun Mexico, and that they were seated next to one another on the flight home. A few years later, they had their first date at Nobu. "We played it cool at the pool of the Cancun, VMA / Confidence you exude make the fools stay away / Me, I played my room, let the fools have they say / Fate had me sittin' next to you on the plane / And I knew straight away," he raps. "The next time we would speak was like two years away / You had a man, you shut it down until you two had a break / I bet that dude rued the day / You kept me up on the phone while you were away / You came back, I let you set the date, Nobu on the plate / I brought my dude to play it cool, my first foolish mistake."
