9 Celebrity Couples Who Met On A Blind Date
7. Cindy Crawford and Rande Gerber
Since 1998, gorgeous model Cindy Crawford and the handsome Rande Gerber have been married and now share two children, but it all started with a blind date set up! Following her divorce from Richard Gere in 1995, the supermodel was ready to start dating again and her agent Michael Gruber, who was a friend of Gerber’s, decided to set them up as dates to his wedding. Of course, it wasn’t entirely a blind date as Gerber was well aware who Crawford was. “I knew who she was, and I knew she was beautiful,” he said. “We decided to meet the night before and get to know each other,” Gerber continued. “I was surprised at how cool and down-to-earth she was.”
6. Hilarie Burton and Jeffrey Dean Morgan
One of Hollywood’s most underrated yet cutest couples is former One Tree Hill actress Hilarie Burton and the charming actor Jeffrey Dean Morgan. While the two might seem like an unlikely couple, partially due to their 16 year age gap, their mutual friends knew they would hit it off so they sent them up on a blind date. As fate would have it, Morgan starred with Jensen Ackles on the hit series Supernatural from 2005-2008, and Burton had starred with Ackles’ wife Danneel on One Tree Hill, so Jensen and Danneel teamed up to get the two together on a blind date. “I happened to be single and Jensen said ‘I’ve got a girl you should meet,’ and so I went to a bar and I met Hilarie at a bar with Jensen and Danneel, and, well, the rest is kind of history,” Morgan revealed. While blind dates are mostly awkward, theirs went incredibly well and they have been together ever since. Now they are parents to a son Augustus who was born in March 2010 and are expecting their second child, a daughter, in the spring of 2018.
