9 Celebrity Couples Who Met On A Blind Date
5. Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson
Keeping Up With the Kardashians star Khloe Kardashian has always had a thing for basketball players, and even after her rocky marriage to Lamar Odom went off the rails, she fell for another NBA player thanks to a friend. Kardashian was set up with Cleveland Cavaliers player Tristan Thompson in the summer of 2016 on a blind date and now the two are expecting their first child together. “I was put on a blind date with Tristan and that’s how [we met],” she shared. “Brandon Jennings, who is a basketball player and a friend of mine and Malika [Haqq]’s, was like, ‘You’re such a good girl, I want to introduce you to someone.’ 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.”
4. Lauren Conrad and William Tell
While audiences watched many of Lauren Conrad’s relationships begin and end during her time on Laguna Beach and The Hills, she finally met “the one” off-screen and through a blind date. Although she admitted she technically met him when she was 16 and was sitting onstage at one of his concerts when he was the guitarist for the band Something Corporate, she didn’t think twice about it. Then, 10 years later they were set up on a blind date on Valentine’s Day in 2012. In September 2014, the two tied the knot, and on July 5, 2017, they welcomed their son William “Liam” James.
