It’s safe to say that a lot went down this year when it comes to Hollywood’s biggest couples. Yep, between Lili Reinhart and Cole Sprouse‘s shocking split and Dove Cameron and Thomas Doherty‘s nasty breakup, so many of our favorite celeb pairings bit the dust in 2020.
While some didn’t make it through the year, other celebrity couples took some major steps in their relationship throughout 2020. Take Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner, for example, who recently welcomed their first child together! And what about Liam Payne? He and his girlfriend, Maya Henry, got engaged earlier this year, and we couldn’t be more excited for them!
As 2020 comes to a close, we decided to check in on the biggest stars’ relationships and round up all the drama that went down this year. Here’s where all your favorite celebrity couples stand as the year ends…
Joe Jonas And Sophie Turner
Jonas and Turner are still going strong! They welcomed their first child together on July 22, 2020 — a little girl named Willa. At the time, a source told Entertainment Tonight, “The couple is already obsessed and can’t stop gloating about their new addition. The couple is taking time to enjoy this special moment and have only shared the news and updates with family and friends. With the pandemic Joe and Sophie have been very cautious about who is around them and their little girl.”
Zayn Malik And Gigi Hadid
“Our baby girl is here, healthy and beautiful,” the One Direction member wrote on Instagram at the time, alongside a touching pic that showed her tiny hand. “To try put into words how I am feeling right now would be an impossible task. The love I feel for this tiny human is beyond my understanding. Grateful to know her, proud to call her mine and thankful for the life we will have together.”
Cody Simpson And Miley Cyrus
“Today, it came out that me and my boyfriend had broken up. It was ‘confirmed by a reliable source,’ although no one is reliable in a relationship, except the two individuals participating in it. But for right now, two halves cannot make a whole and we’re individually just working on ourselves to become the people that we want to be,” Cyrus explained during an Instagram Live at the time. “Like everyone else at this age, we’re deciding who we want to be and what we want to do with our lives. So don’t make it some drama story if next week we’re spotted hanging out or getting pizza. We’ve been friends for 10 years and will continue to be friends. Don’t make it something that it is not.”
Justin Bieber And Hailey Baldwin
Everyone can breathe a sigh of relief because Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin are still together! As fans know, the pair started dating in June 2018, got engaged one month later and married that September, and since then, they’ve been as happy as could be together!
You guys might want to prepare yourselves, because according to their friend Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, they’re going to have a baby in 2021. Back in August 2020, the model became an aunt when he sister, Alaia Baldwin, welcomed her first child with her husband, Andrew Aronow. And when the “Love Yourself” crooner posted a snap of himself holding the new baby, Johnson left a pretty interesting comment.
“This pretty much seals the deal. Fully expect you and H to have a baby in 2021,” he wrote. Yes, please!
Lili Reinhart And Cole Sprouse
Unfortunately, our favorite Riverdale couple ended their relationship in 2020. For those who forgot, the pair was first spotted kissing in July 2017, and after that, they quickly became couple goals. Over their three-year relationship, they constantly shared cute pictures together, gushed over each other in interviews and attended events side by side. But in August 2020, fans were left shocked when the actor announced that they had split a few months earlier.
“Lili and I initially separated in January of this year, deciding to more permanently split in March,” Sprouse wrote on Instagram at the time. “What an incredible experience I had, I’ll always feel lucky and cherish that I had the chance to fall in love. I wish her nothing but the utmost love and happiness moving forward. All I’ll say about it, anything else you hear doesn’t matter.”
Nick Jonas And Priyanka Chopra
Demi Lovato And Max Ehrich
Demi Lovato‘s sudden breakup from Max Ehrich was definitely one of the most talked about events in 2020. For those who missed it, news hit the web that the two stars had split on September 23, 2020 — just a few months after they got engaged.
“It was a tough decision, but Demi and Max have decided to go their separate ways to focus on their respective careers,” a source close to the pair told People Magazine about the split. “They have respect and love for one another and will always cherish the time they spent together.”
Afterwards, things got a little messy. Get this — the High School Musical 3 star actually took to his Instagram Stories to address the breakup news, and he claimed that he found out that their engagement was over from articles he read online.
“Imagine finding out… the status of your relationship through a tabloid,” he wrote. “While you’re in the middle of filming a biopic movie about a pastor in a Christian church whose intention of the film is to help people.”
Louis Tomlinson And Eleanor Calder
As 2020 comes to a close, Louis Tomlinson and Eleanor Calder seem as happy as could be together. Ever since the reconciled in 2017, they have been side by side, and they even got matching tattoos of each other’s initials on their hands! How cute is that?! In January 2020, rumors hit the web that they were engaged, but the singer quickly shut these down.
“It isn’t true,” he told The Sun. “But the luxury with Eleanor is I’ve known her since before our first single, ‘What Makes You Beautiful,’ so she’s felt the whole growth of everything. As I’ve got to understand it, she has too, and I have the benefit with her that we’ve seen it for what it is.”
He also revealed that although they weren’t getting married just yet, he does have plans to walk down the aisle with her one day.
“If you’re asking me if I’m going to marry her? Yes, I think so!” he added.
Ariana Grande And Dalton Gomez
Based off their recent Instagram PDA, Ariana Grande and her beau, Dalton Gomez, are definitely still together. The “Thank U, Next” songstress and the real estate agent were first spotted together in February 2020. They confirmed their relationship in May 2020, when they starred in the music video for Grande’s new song with Justin Bieber — “Stuck With You” — and have been total goals ever since.
Liam Payne And Maya Henry
Payne confirmed that he and Henry were engaged during an interview with Good Morning America on September 3, 2020. At the time, he gushed, “We’re just really happy!”
For those who missed it, the two stars were first spotted holding hands in August 2019, but according to The Sun, the “Strip That Down” crooner and the brunette beauty were actually together for a while before that!
“Liam and Maya have been together for several months now. He is besotted and they get on very well,” a source told them in August 2019. “He wanted to wait before they started going public. He is close to Cheryl and, out of respect to her, only wanted to go public with a girlfriend when he knew it was right.”
Dove Cameron And Thomas Doherty
After nearly four years together, Cameron confirmed in December 2020 that she and her boyfriend, Doherty, decided to go their separate ways.
“Hi all. We know there have been some rumors and confusion lately about the status of our relationship and we wanted to set the record straight,” the former Disney star wrote on her Instagram Stories at the time. “In October, Thomas and I decided to part ways. The decision was incredibly difficult, but we still have love for each other, and will remain friends. Thank you for allowing us our privacy in this time.”
Shawn Mendes And Camila Cabello
Since Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello are two of the biggest stars in the industry, when they got together in July 2019, it was a dream come true. Well guys, they’re still going strong! His new album, Wonder, came out on December 4, 2020, and boy, were there so many songs inspired by Cabello on it!
Before it came out, the pop star actually told Roman Kemp during an interview with Capital FM that his new music is “all about [Cabello].” He also revealed that she was actually the person who pushed him to make the album.
“[She said], ‘Just stick with it because it feels like you.’ It gave us goosebumps the first conversation we had about it,” he shared. “I did stick with it, and everything from that moment of like just sticking with the original concept, it all just like has been flowing and it never stopped flowing.”
Jacob Elordi And Kaia Gerber
Fans were seriously shook when Jacob Elordi was spotted cozying up to model Kaia Gerber in September 2020. They’ve been pretty much inseparable since then, and since they were photographed together just a few days ago, it looks like they’re definitely still together.
Taylor Swift And Joe Alwyn
Not only are Taylor Swift and her boyfriend, Joe Alwyn, still going strong, but there’s even rumors circulating the web at the moment that they’re engaged!
So where did the rumors start, you ask? Well, for those who missed it, the “Lover” songstress recently announced that she was re-recording all of her old songs after a long and complicated legal battle with Scooter Braun. And when she shared a preview of the new version of her hit single “Love Story,” many people though that she threw in a major clue that she was engaged in the lyrics.
Now, as fans know, one line of “Love Story” reads, “Marry me, Juliet, you’ll never have to be alone / I love you, and that’s all I really know / I talked to your dad, go pick out a white dress / It’s a love story, baby, just say yes.” But in the snippet that she shared of the re-recorded song, many people thought that she changed the line “Baby just say yes” to “Baby just SAID yes” — meaning she and Alwyn were engaged. We guess we’ll have to wait and see if this is true or if it’s just speculation!
KJ Apa And Clara Berry
“Coup de foudre,” he captioned the post, which translated to “love at first sight,” but it has since been taken down.
They’ve both stayed pretty tight-lipped about the relationship since then. However, Apa did share one more picture with Berry to Instagram in December 2020 in honor of her birthday, so it looks like they’re still dating! He posted a pic that showed him and the French model cozying up together, which he captioned, “Happy birthday, my love.”
