The coronavirus pandemic is not the ideal time to socially disengage. Many of Hollywood’s most famous couples met online. They did so via social media or on dating apps. This proves that it is possible to find love in your own home. It makes sense that celebrity online dating stories have become more common with their hectic schedules and stressful work lives. Ricky Martin and Mandy Moore are just two examples of people who have turned to the Interwebs for their soulmates.
Taylor Goldsmith and Mandy Moore
Love at first like? Mandy Moore met Taylor Goldsmith in an Instagram chat. Moore shared with People in 2017 that she was only a fan at the time of Goldsmith’s band, Dawes. She wanted to share her love of her music with others. She said that she took a photo of the album and posted it to Instagram. “Somehow Taylor saw it and wrote me a note.”
Priyanka Chopra, Nick Jonas
Although their relationship was fluid, Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra grew closer over time. But, behind the scenes, they found love and respect on Twitter. They first met in 2017 at the Vanity Fair Oscars Afterparty. It was a moment that is now infamous. Jonas fell to one knee when he saw the Quantico star wearing a Michael Kors black sequined gown. Chopra was a former boy bander and sent a direct message to him via Twitter.
Brittany Snow & Tyler Stanaland
Brittany Snow prefers to keep her private life secret, so Pitch Perfect fans didn’t get to know the story of how she met Tyler Stanaland. Snow said that even though they were mutual friends, their crushes turned into a real relationship through social media. Stanaland, a real-estate agent, said that Britt was someone she knew for obvious reasons. Britt was my unattainable crush for ever. Snow, on the other hand, saw his Instagram and was familiar with him. I thought, “That man is the most beautiful.” He was always there in my thoughts and I knew I would never get to meet him.
Sarah Hyland, Wells Adams
Wells Adams was a contestant on JoJo’s season of The Bachelorette. He began to woo Modern Family actress Sarah Hyland via social media in 2017. After Adams’ stint as the bartender on the summer’s Bachelor on Paradise season, the pair had already been exchanging flirty messages. But things got serious when Adams sent Hyland an Instagram message: “The next you’re in L.A. I’m taking your out for drinks, tacos, and more.”

Ricky Martin, Jwan Josef
Ricky Martin first fell in love with Jwan Josef’s art, but soon began to be interested in the creator. Josef’s artwork was discovered by the singer while scrolling through Instagram. He reached out to him via direct message. “I scroll and I see this beautiful piece art. I thought it was so cool!” Who’s this?'” Andy Cohen once said that he had told him. “Then, I checked and all of the sudden I’m like, “Ooh, ooh.” Then I wrote to him.”
Ryan Lochte, Kayla Rae Reid
Ryan Lochte, an Olympic gold medalist and a catchphrase like “Jeah”, made headlines back in 2016 when he met his wife on Instagram. People reported that Lochte actually told People that he had reached out to Kayla Rae in direct message that year, hoping that sparks would fly IRL. He told People that Lochte was in L.A. at that time, while he was in Charlotte, North Carolina. “I was training in L.A. and went out to a club. Her girlfriend was also going to the same club. “Oh, maybe we’ll finally see each other,” I thought.
Holland Taylor and Sarah Paulson
This is a true example of timing being everything. Holland Taylor and Sarah Paulson first met at a 2005 party, although they were both with different people at that time. The pair didn’t reunite until nearly ten years later, and they stayed in touch through Taylor’s first move. Paulson shared their relationship on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen in 2019.
