Rich, famous and in love… the characteristics we assume every celebrity couple embodies through their glamorous photos of romantic Caribbean getaways and riveting red carpet PDA. However, the image of every celebrity couple is different from how it’s portrayed in the media.
Through their interracial relationships displayed in the media, celebrity couples show us there’s more than meets the eye. Our fixation on Hollywood may be over-the-top, but whoever said we couldn’t take away a solid lesson from it? We learn to accept love in all shapes, sizes and colors, especially in the case of these couples:
1. Kim Kardashian and Kanye West: The E! reality star and the outspoken rapper, who were originally old friends, hooked up just months after Kim filed for divorce from Kris Humphries. Even before their relationship, Kim and Kanye were no strangers to interracial love with a dating list that includes Miles Austin, Reggie Bush and Amber Rose. From the looks of it, the list will end here. Kimye are expecting their first child this year.

2. Khloe Kardashian-Odom and Lamar Odom: The marriage of Khloe and Lamar is one we all can’t help but love. The two lovebirds met back in August of 2009 and tied the knot just a few weeks after. Fans of the Keeping up with the Kardashians star and the NBA player had their doubts on whether the duo would make it. Three years later, the couple is still head-over-heels for each other. Now we’re all patiently waiting for a Baby Odom.
3. Paula Patton and Robin Thicke: These high school sweethearts have turned into one of the most beautiful and successful couples in Hollywood, but it’s been a long time coming. Patton hasn’t always been comfortable with her interracial relationship with the singer. In an interview with Essence magazine, the actress admitted, “I didn’t want all my high school friends to know that I’d fallen for a white boy.” Lucky for Paula, the secret is out now. The couple is living a fairytale with their only child, Julian.
4. Camila Alves and Matthew McConaughey: When Brazilian bombshell Camila Alves first met Matthew McConaughey in 2006, she had no idea they would be married six years later. Their 13-year age difference and ethnicity didn’t stop these two from building a life together, having three kids and being named one of the hottest Hollywood interracial couples.
