At the Grammys, Muse’s lead singer Matt Bellamy was a winner in more ways than one.  When the band accepted the Grammy for Best Rock Album on Sunday night, he seized the opportunity to gush about his girlfriend, Kate Hudson, in a very public way.  UsMagazine.com reports that Bellamy, 32, ended his band’s acceptance speech by thanking his “beautiful pregnant girlfriend.”  Hudson was present at the show, but didn’t walk the red carpet.  The 31-year-old actress, who has a 7-year-old son with ex-husband Chris Robinson, has said that she doesn’t think she will get married again.

What are ways to thank your partner for being there for you?

Cupid’s Advice:

While most of us don’t have the chance to thank our significant others on TV in front of millions of people, there are plenty of everyday opportunities to say thanks for being there.  Cupid has some ideas on how to show you care:

1. It’s the little things: Attention all men: no woman doesn’t like getting flowers.  She’ll like it even more if you give them to her out of the blue just to let her know you appreciate her.

2. Put yourself out there: If you want to thank your partner for being there, doing it front of an audience shows you’re not afraid to celebrate your love publicly.  Try making a speech at your mate’s birthday party or on your anniversary in front of your friends.

3. Actions speak louder than words: Thanking your significant other doesn’t always mean saying “thank you” out loud; it’s about showing you’re thankful by doing something for them.  If your partner nags you about how messy you are, try cleaning the house before they come home.
