Vote up which celebrity couples that started dating, or that are rumored to have started dating, in 2019 you hope will stick together.
Ashley Benson and Cara Delevingne were first spotted together leaving a Lauryn Hill concert in New York City in May 2019. They've been seen sharing PDA ever since, and have seemingly become Instagram official with both making appearances on the other's page. That same month they set the internet on fire when they were spotted carrying a very adult toy into Delevingne's home.
In June 2019, Benson reportedly sold her home in Los Angeles and moved in with the model and Suicide Squad star. By July 2019 the pair were rumored to be engaged.
Though the pair have known each other for years and run in the same activism circles, rumors sparked that there was more than friendship between Senator Cory Booker and actor Rosario Dawson after the pair went to see Dear Evan Hansen on Broadway, joined by Dawson's daughter Lola and Booker's niece. According to Page Six, Dawson was heard saying "I love you, te amo" in the kind of intimate and sweet sing-song sentences that often pass between couples.
In February, after Booker announced his campaign for the Democratic nomination for president, he mentioned his girlfriend on The Breakfast Club and said: "I’m dating someone [who] is very special." On March 14, 2019, Dawson confirmed to TMZ that the two were an official pair.
Keanu Reeves made an appearance with rumored new girlfriend artist Alexandra Grant at the LACMA Art + Film Gala Presented by Gucci in Los Angeles on November 2. Neither has made an official statement about their relationship, but if they are a couple, it would be the first time Reeves has had a public girlfriend in nearly 20 years, and the first time he's brought a romantic date to a red carpet in his 35-year career. Grant illustrated both of Reeves's adult picture books, Ode to Happiness and Shadows. The two started a publishing company together, X Artists' Books, in 2017.
In 2018, Grant told Los Angeles magazine of her projects with Reeves, "Some people are kind of dreamers who have a lot of ideas but don't like to get things done. I think we both like to have the idea and get it into the world."
The pair also quietly attended the Saint Laurent fashion show together in June, where they were seen holding hands.
The John Wick and Always Be My Maybe star hasn't communicated any official response, but the Internet is thrilled.
Jenny Slate was first spotted cozying up to new boyfriend Ben Shattuck when she brought him along to the Sundance Film Festival in January 2019. Ben Shattuck is a still life painter who regularly exhibits in Massachusetts writes for publications like The Paris Review.
Slate has been open about the relationship, likely following the massive privacy needed for her last relationship with Chris Evans, and often shares Instagram posts gushing about her new beau.
