    After putting out all the good vibes about their dream significant other, the universe totally came through for these stars, who all ended up dating the partner they manifested!

    These celebrities are proof that manifestation works:

    1. Megan Fox & Machine Gun Kelly

    Megan Fox says she's been manifesting a person like Machine Gun Kelly since she was four years old, and the stars aligned when they ended up being cast in Midnight In The Switchgrass together. She says she didn't really know why she had accepted the role, and that she "just knew" she "needed to do it for some reason." She quickly figured out the reason when she looked up a photo of her costar, MGK. 

    "He’s literally my exact physical type that I’ve been manifesting since I was four. I’m also four years older than him. So, I think I made him. My thoughts and intentions grew him into the person that he is, who knows what he would’ve looked like or been like if it wasn’t for me," Megan told Glamour

    2. Ariana Grande & Pete Davidson

    When Ariana Grande briefly met Pete Davidson on the set of Saturday Night Live in 2016, she knew there was something special about their connection. In fact, after their quick meeting, Ariana says she told her manager, "I'm marrying him, a hundred percent...I’m literally marrying him."

    While it took two years for their relationship to be manifested into existence (and for the right timing), Ariana admitted she "thought him" into her life. In her song "Pete Davidson," she hints at the fact she manifested the relationship. 

    "I thought you into my life, woah / Look at my mind, yeah / No better place or a time / Look how they align / Universe must have my back / Fell from the sky into my lap," Ariana sings on the track. 

    3. Halsey & Evan Peters

    Years before Halsey briefly dated Evan Peters in 2019, she basically manifested their relationship through a series of tweets. Starting in 2012, Halsey professed her attraction to the actor on the social media platform, even writing, "Petition for Evan Peters to date me." It turns out she didn't even need a petition because the duo did end up dating for several months. 

    It's not clear if Evan ever found out about the tweets (which have now been deleted) but clearly, Halsey's manifesting worked!

    4. Alex Rodriguez & Jennifer Lopez

    Long before Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez were an item, the former baseball star basically said the singer would be his ideal girlfriend. When asked during an interview what a "dream date" would be like with him, he responded, "Jennifer Lopez" — and jokingly asked the interviewer to connect them.

    When Alex was shown the clip 20 years later, he appeared impressed that things had finally worked out. 

    "That means that dreams actually do come true in America. It took me 20 years," Alex said on The Tonight Show.  

    5. Victoria & David Beckham

    Victoria Beckham admits she'd been dreaming of dating her now-husband, David, long before they even met. In fact, she says she never even had a celebrity crush before she saw him. 

    "It's about creative visualization," Victoria said on The Ellen Show

    Her "creative visualization" worked out when she later met David in the Manchester United players' lounge in 1997.

    6. Jodie Turner & Joshua Jackson

    Jodie Turner admits that she'd been crushing on Joshua Jackson way before they met! The actor seems to have been a big fan of Dawson's Creek growing up and revealed that she actually had a crush on Joshua's character, Pacey. 

    "It was Pacey from Dawson's Creek! I was a very young teenager," Jodie told W Magazine about her first crush.

    Her childhood crush turned into a reality when years later, the couple connected  — and they've since tied the knot and welcomed a baby.

    7. Brad Paisley & Kimberly Williams

    When Brad Paisley saw Kimberly Williams in Father of the Bride, he knew it was destiny for them to be together. While he first watched the movie on a date with a former girlfriend, by the time the sequel hit theaters, Brad was single — and realized that Kimberly was the kind of girl he should be spending his life with. 

    "Woke up one day and thought to myself, 'That's not who I belong with, not the girl I took to the movie.' It's the strangest thing. I sound like a psycho. I thought, 'You know who I belong with? The girl in the movie,'" Brad told Piers Morgan.  

    Several years later, the duo finally connected when Kimberly starred in one of Brad's music videos, which he Brad says was a "bigger power at work." 

    "We just felt like all the events of our lives had come together for us to meet right when we did," Kimberly agreed.

    8. Jason Momoa & Lisa Bonet

    Jason Momoa was just a little boy when he first saw Lisa Bonet on his television screen and declared that she was the one for him. Fate brought them together as adults when they were both "at the right place at the right time."

    "Ever since I was, like, 8 years old and I saw her on the TV, I was like, 'Mommy, I want that one.' ...I'm a full-fledged stalker. I didn't tell her that until we had two babies, otherwise, I'd be creepy and weird. But yeah, [I'd] just always wanted to meet her. She was a queen, always," Jason said on The Late Late Show.

    9. Joe Manganiello & Sofia Vergara

    Joe Manganiello had a longtime crush on Sofia Vergara before they connected. And after years of manifesting a relationship, things finally worked out when Sofia was single for the first time in a while — and Joe got a heads up from a friend. 

    "I've had a crush on Sofia for years. Actually, all my friends knew about it to the point where just before she was to announce she was going to be single again, my friend, the editor of People magazine, told me before he was to release a public statement to the masses. So he sent it to me first to warn me that there's going to be a line of guys going after her. He wrote to me, 'I want you to get there first. Go get her!'" Joe said in an interview with News.com.au.

    10. Nick Cannon & Mariah Carey

    Nick Cannon put it into the universe that he was going to be with Mariah Carey — and it actually worked. After telling friends that he was sure he was going to date her, they thought he was a little bit crazy, but it wasn't long before they actually connected.

    "At one point, I was like, 'I'ma get Mariah Carey.' It turned from my celebrity crush to like, 'Nah, she's about to be my girlfriend.' People were like, 'You're bugging. There's no way you can get Mariah Carey.' I was like, 'Watch, I'm telling you,'" Nick said on TV One’s Uncensored

    When the couple met backstage at the Teen Choice Awards, it turns out she had  heard Nick "speaking all these positive secret little nothings about her in interviews" and it sparked a relationship for the duo. 

    11. Max Ehrich & Demi Lovato

    Long before Demi Lovato and Max Ehrich got engaged, the actor was manifesting a relationship between them on social media. Fans tracked down several old tweets he had posted about Demi, one of which said, "All I wanted for Christmas was Demi Lovato. #cantalwaysgetwhatyouwant...."

    It turns out that Max eventually got what he wanted for Christmas because he connected with Demi in 2020 and after a whirlwind romance, they ended up getting engaged. When Demi discovered the old tweet, they shared it on Instagram, writing, "We love a little manifestation"

    In the end, the pair split after a few months together — which some fans believe was due to his other manifestation tweets which were all about Demi's former BFF, Selena Gomez!

    12. Cody Simpson & Miley Cyrus

    Cody Simpson was just a young teenager when he started manifesting a relationship with Miley Cyrus. In an interview, he admitted that she had always been his childhood crush and he thought she would always be the most datable Disney star.

    "Miley Cyrus has always been my childhood celebrity crush. I knew all the words to her songs, I'm not gonna lie. I'm not ashamed about it, at all. I was a big Miley Cyrus fan. I think she will be, forever, the most dateable Disney star," Cody told Fuse in 2012.

    Cody's manifestation worked because the duo ended up becoming good friends before dating for almost a year.
