We can’t help who we fall in love with, right? For these celebrity couples, age is just a number. And even though they've maybe faced an eyebrow raise or two from the public, they've proved that a significant age difference doesn't have to be a hurdle to relationship bliss.

From Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds to Harrison Ford and Calista Flockhart, here are the most famous celebrity couples with major age differences — one of which is more than 40 years.

Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds

Age difference: 11 years

The gorgeous couple met on the set of “Green Lantern” when Lively, fresh off her “Gossip Girl” success was just 22 and Reynolds was 33 (and married to fellow actress Scarlett Johansson at the time.) They got married in 2012 and, in addition to drawing huge laughs for their social media antics, are now the parents to two daughters, James and Inez.

George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin

Age difference: 17 years

Much to everyone’s surprise, the world’s most famous bachelor finally settled down with the crazy accomplished human rights lawyer who was 17 years his junior. Clooney was 52 when he proposed to then 35-year-old Alamuddin, and the glamorous couple soon got hitched in a star-studded affair in Italy.

As for married life, Clooney recently shared with Esquire that it doesn’t get much better: “There were all the jokes and the bits and I get all that stuff, but I couldn't be happier right now.”

And now the jet-setting duo has twins Alexander and Ella.

Beyonce and Jay-Z

Age difference: 12 years

Queen Bey and Jay-Z met when she was just 18 and started dating when she was 19 and he was 31. The power couple quickly became the it couple of music and dated for seven years before finally tying the knot in a top-secret ceremony in 2008. They had daughter Blue Ivy in 2012 and twins Sir and Rumi in 2018, and continue to collaborate in both music and life.

When the youngest member of the Jonas Brothers, now 30, announced his engagement to stunning “Quantico” star Priyanka Chopra, the world was left scratching their heads. The celeb couple were apparently connected through friends and once they finally made the leap from just friends to dating, it only took a mere two months to put a ring on it.

When dating rumors first started to swirl, late-night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel joked with Chopra about their large age difference by asking “Are you dating Nick Jonas? Isn’t he like, 11 years old?” The actress gamely replied, “I didn’t ask his age. 11? I did not know that. Good to know.”
