    If there were to be a rom-com glorifying the art of blind dating, Harry and Meghan would be the poster children for it.

    During their first TV interview together as an engaged couple, Meghan revealed she met Harry through a mutual friend of theirs, who set them up on a blind date in July 2016. Meghan admitted she had no preconceived notions about her potential suitor, but would only agree to the date if he was a nice guy.

    Today, the couple is happily married and expecting their first child together.

    Ok, so technically it wasn't a blind date, but if it helps, neither of them saw it coming!

    After filming their 2011 film Green Lantern, Blake and Ryan remained friends. They ended up going on a double date together...but with different people (aka Blake was on a date with another guy and Ryan was on a date with another girl). Unfortunately for their dates, Blake and Ryan couldn't seem to keep their eyes off of each other.

    "That was the most awkward date for their respective probably because we were just like fireworks coming across," Ryan told SiriusXM.

    Today, the couple is happily married with two daughters.

    3. Emily Blunt and John Krasinski

    A lot of good things came from The Devil Wears Prada and this couple is one of them. If you're saying to yourself, "John wasn't in that movie," you're right...but let me explain.

    Anne Hathaway and Emily starred in the 2006 hit movie together and instantly became friends. In 2008, Anne thought it would be a cool idea to see two really funny people date, so she arranged for Emily and John to meet.

    And it didn't take long John to fall head-over-heels for her. He told Ellen DeGeneres he wasn't looking for a relationship at the time, "But I met her, and I was so nervous and I was like, ‘Oh no I’m going to fall in love with her.’"

    Meghan Trainor was singing about her "Dear Future Husband"...and then she met him.

    According to Meghan, she told all her friends to find her a boyfriend and one of those friends happened to be Chloë Grace Moretz.

    "Chloë Grace Moretz is a friend of mine, and day one of meeting her, I was like, ‘You know anybody that I could date? Or love? Whatever.' And she’s like, ‘I know the nicest guy in the world, Daryl, and you should meet him.’ I was like, ‘Daryl? Okay.'” They began dating in 2016.

    The couple became happily married in December 2018.

    Tequila doesn't always lead to a happy ending, but who doesn't love an exception to the rule.

    Back in 2009, Jeffrey's Supernatural costar Jensen Ackles and his wife Danneel Ackles (who just so happens to be Hilarie's former One Tree Hill co-star) organized a blind double date for Jeffrey and Hilarie. The night went so well, they ended up heading back to Jeffrey's house for tequila shots.

    Today, the couple is happily living together with two children together.

    6. Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake

    Technically it wasn't a date, but they both walked into the situation blind to what might happen next.

    Jessica Biel's former 7th Heaven co-star Beverly Mitchell just so happened to be friends with Justin Timberlake as well. While they were all at 2007 Golden Globes, Beverly introduced Jessica and Justin to each other.

    "It was so cute because they were like—it’s that moment like I like you, I think you like me. It was very, very sweet. They were definitely flirting. They were really cute."

    Today, the couple is happily married with one son.

    Anne and Adam are a prime example of what happens when you listen to your friends AND follow your gut.

    They met through mutual friends at the Palm Springs Film Festival in 2008. Despite ending things with ex-boyfriend Raffaello Follieri a few months prior, Anne knew right away she was going to marry Adam. For their first date, Anne invited Adam on a trip to New Orleans after her BFFs ditched her and the rest is history.

    This love story almost didn't happen, because Gisele was tired of her friends setting her up on blind dates.

    During a visit to The Tonight Show, Gisele told Jimmy Fallon about the first time she met NFL quarterback Tom Brady in December 2006. Gisele and Tom met for drinks, and the rest was love at first sight...literally.

    "For some reason everybody thought they needed to like find me a boyfriend, so it was my third blind date. When I saw those kind eyes, I literally fell in love, like, right away. I was like, ‘What?’ He was just so — you know how sweet he is."

    Today, the couple is happily married with two kids together.

    What happens when a Spanish actress and an Australian actor get together? They live happily ever after, that's what!

Chris told Elle, "From the first time we met, we just made sense. She's fun. She's outgoing, and she has a sense of humor and a passionate attitude toward life, which is nice to try to keep up with."

    Today, the couple is happily married with three children together.

    Benji and Cameron actually knew of each other when they were younger, but never rolled in the same circles. They even played against each other in a charity celebrity basketball game hosted by NSYNC in 2004. But the two weren't formally introduced until much later in life.

    Cameron didn't formally meet Benji until she threw a dinner party with Nicole Richie and Nicole's husband Joel Madden (Benji's twin brother). Joel asked if he could bring his brother to the dinner and the rest is history. Cameron admitted she thought Benji was "hot" when she first met him.

    The couple happily married in 2015 during a private ceremony in their living room.

    11. Lauren Conrad and William Tell

    A few things might be unwritten, but Lauren and William's love story isn't one of them.

    The first time Lauren met William was when she was a teenager watching his band, Something Corporate, perform. They were later re-introduced on a blind date. "I met my husband when I was 16 and sitting onstage at one of his concerts," Lauren wrote on her blog. "Ten years later we were set up on a blind date." They began dating in February 2012.

    Today, the couple is happily married with a son.

    Khloé hoped to find someone who could keep up with her and Tristan just might be that guy.

    During the KUWTK's 10th anniversary special, Khloé revealed Brandon Jennings, a basketball player and mutual friend, set her up on a blind date with Tristan after realizing what a nice person she was.

    "I was at the Bel-Air Hotel, and [Tristan] came to the dinner. I didn’t want to go on a blind date, so Brandon kind of ambushed the blind date. We just connected."

    Today, the status of their relationship is still unclear, but they do share a beautiful daughter together.

    13. Amy Schumer and Chris Fischer

    Amy Schumer just needed a little ASSISTANCE in the love department and she'd soon realize she wouldn't have to look far.

    Chris has a sister and that sister just so happens to be Amy Schumer's assistant. The assistant thought it would be a good idea to hook them up. Chris, an award winning chef with clients like the Obamas and Jake Gyllenhaal, was asked by his sister to cook for Amy. And we all know food is the fastest way to a person's heart.

    Today, the couple is happily married and are expecting their first child together.

    14. Courtney Cox and Johnny McDaid

    Looks like Johnny found someone to lie with him and just forget the world.

    Snow Patrol's Johnny McDaid used to have a famous roommate, you might know him, his name is ED SHEERAN. Ed shared how their love story began in 2013 "I introduced him to Courtney Cox. They started dating and [are] crazy about each other.”

    Today, the couple is still happily dating.

    Salma was tricked into going out with François-Henri, but luckily for them, it turned out to be a treat.

    "I didn’t know it was a date," Salma told Latina. "I thought I was going to an event, and then there was one person at it. I was set up by friends to think I was going to an event, because they knew I wouldn’t go on a date. I was angry. And he didn’t know, because he thought I knew he was coming just to meet him. It started out really badly."

    As you can tell, they eventually landed on the right foot. The couple is happily married with a daughter.
