We love love—even better if we’re talking about the rich, famous people type of love. These new celeb couples have been some of the few bright spots in the tire fire that has been 2018 thus far. From Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson’s whirlwind engagement and (predictable) breakup to Timothée Chalamet and Lily-Rose Depp getting caught smooching, this year has basically been like a series of quirky rom-coms—and we have loved every minute. (Of course, like any rom-com, some of these couplings weren’t meant to last the year—or even the month—but we’ll #neverforget.)

Danica Patrick and Aaron Rodgers
These two sports heavy-weights revved up their relationship in January 2018, with Patrick, 36, confirming their relationship to the Associated Press. The duo sealed their relationship status with a track-side smooch at Patrick’s Daytona 500 race in mid February, and it’s been full-speed ahead since! The pair has canoodled in Mexico, hung with the fam in Florida, and travelled to India to help outfit children and adults with hearing aids. Of her new bf Patrick has said, “He’s funny, he’s very kind, he’s thoughtful, he’s smart, and he’s really good at football.” The athletes, who met in 2012, both recently ended long-term relationships, Patrick with fellow NASCAR-driver Ricky Stenhouse Jr. (after five years), and Rodgers, 34, with actress (and alleged serial dater of friend’s exes) Olivia Munn.
Of his three-year relationship with Munn, Rodgers said living in the public eye was difficult. “It has some extra constraints because you have other opinions about your relationship, how it affects your work, and you know, just some inappropriate comments.” Fingers crossed this relationship makes it to the finish line!
