In his post N’Sync days, Joey Fatone married his high school girlfriend Kelly Baldwin in a ceremony in Oheka Castle on Long Island, New York in 2004. (All band members were present though!) They have two children together, and it’s the couple’s interest in combining their names to form their children’s names that lands them on this list. In 2001 the couple welcomed Brianna Joely and later Kloey Alexandra in 2010.

6. Eminem & Kim Scott

Eminem’s rap career took off with songs inspired by…well very angry songs about Kim Scott. But the couple shared a long history. When Eminem was 15 he met and began dating Kim 13, when she and her twin sister Dawn moved in with Eminem’s momma. In 1995, the couple had daughter Hailie, and they later married in 1999. They were divorced in 2001, but the drama didn’t stop there. The couple remarried in 2006, but filed once again for divorce after a whopping four months.


5. Paula Patton & Robin Thicke

Robin Thicke made a pretty desperate attempt to win his ex, Paula, back by dedicating and naming his album after her, but who could blame him? The Blurred Lines singer met Paula Patton at an under-21 club when they were in their early teens. The couple married in 2005 and had their son Julian in 2010. But after a series of questionable moves by Robin, the couple split in 2014. Paula has gone on to say that her newly single status has made her “like a real woman now” since she is living on her own for the first time in her life.
