When the actor — previously known as one of Hollywood's most notorious bachelors — first met the lawyer, 43, "I liked her, but I didn't want to jump the shark on her," George, who turns 60 in May, recently said. "I'm 17 years older than her so she might have thought I was a grandpa." That clearly wasn't the case! The pair wed in 2014 and went on to welcome twins. Added George, "Having Amal in my life changed everything for me."

Catherine didn't think twice about marrying an older man! "When my mother was telling me about men and...the facts of life," the star once said, "she never actually put an age bracket on it." More than 20 years after their wedding day, the actress, 51, and Michael,76, are still going strong. "[She's] the whole package," the Kominsky Method actor gushed of his wife. "You couldn't divide it into parts."

The duo admits that if there's one thing that could affect their nearly two-year marriage, it's the age gap. "But that is our only problem," Foster, 71, has candidly confessed. "Everything else is in line, so it's not going to bring us down." And it hasn't! The music producer and Katharine, 36, recently welcomed their first child together — and they couldn't be happier. "She's really magical," Foster gushed of his wife. Aww!

This musical power couple (they married in 2008) have had bigger fish to fry than their contrasting ages. In 2014, the rapper, 51, became headline fodder for cheating on the singer, 39. "We did the hard work of going to therapy," he said in 2018. "We love each other, so we really put in the work for years." And because of that, "I like to believe we're in a better place today."

Despite being together for six years, the Legally Blonde alum is still shocked to be dating 46-year-old Sarah! "It's kind of a mystery given the age difference," Holland revealed. The fact "that she would make a commitment like this and... share her life with me is a constant surprise every day." The actress, 78, isn't taking it for granted. "[Sarah's] obviously at the center of my life," she added. "I'm blessed."
