Hope you’re Saturday is going well. If you follow me on Snapchat (@breesanchezz) you will see I spent the morning scrubbing my kitchen. In fairness it’s tiny but I’m still going to use it to justify my takeaway tonight! So I just realised it’s only eight days till Valentine’s! Or as Liz would say “Anna Howard Shaw day”
My feelings on Valentine’s?
Even though I’m single and have never been on a Valentine’s date, I don’t hate the idea of Valentine’s. I love showing the people you care about just how you feel. That’s sweet. It’s the extravagant gifts and commercial aspect that I’m not all for.
Seeing as I am a romantic at heart (don’t tell anyone) I started thinking about Celebrities getting married on the big V-Day. To be honest my research turned up mostly marriages that have now ended and that bummed me out. Maybe getting married on Valentines is a curse? Oooohhhhh….
(Or maybe it’s just because celebrities are more likely to split anyway.) Either way, I’ve made a list of some celebs who have gotten engaged or married on February 14th.
1.Benedict Cumberbatch & Sophie Hunter
I thought I would start with a happy one. The couple got married on the Isle of Wight last year in a small ceremony. They welcomed a baby boy later that year. I love Benedict and think these are one of the cutest celebrity couples, if not just for the way he is with her. Sophie is a theatre director but isn’t in the limelight as much, so when they are on the red carpet he always asks her this question.

3. Liam Gallagher & Nicole Appleton
The singers wed in a registry office in 2008. The couple have one child together. Unfortunately they split in 2014 when his affairs and love child came to light. (I tried finding a picture where he smiles but it’s impossible)
4. Sharon Stone & Phil Bronstein
In 1998 the Basic Instinct actress invited close family and friends to a soirée in her LA mansion, only for guests to find out it was their wedding ceremony! They adopted a son in 2000. Unfortunately they divorced in 2004 and their son remained primarily with Bronstein.
