Celebrity Couples Who Got Engaged and Married Within 12 Months

posted in: Entertainment News | 0

When you know, you know! Through the years, countless celebrities have been bitten by the love bug — hard and fast. While couples traditionally spend months, even years, planning their weddings after getting engaged, it’s not totally uncommon for Hollywood to do it differently.

Take Amy Schumer and Chris Fischer for example: Just three days after the chef popped the question to the comedian in bed (“He kind of threw the ring box at me and he goes, ‘I got you this,’” she later recalled), they exchanged vows during a super low-key ceremony in Malibu in 2018.

“Most of the guests found out the wedding was happening from a text Amy sent,” a source told Us Weekly exclusively at the time. “It was, ‘Hey, this is happening. If you can make it, great. If not, no worries.’ … It was very laid-back — just how Chris and Amy wanted it.”

Of course, Schumer and Fischer were not the first — nor the last — celebrities to get engaged and married within a 12-month period. Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries did it in 2011, Britney Spears and Kevin Federline in 2004 and Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin in 2018.

Some of the lovebirds’ whirlwind romances quickly came crumbling down, while others are still going strong today (here’s to you, Tom Brady and Gisele Bündchen).
