By Katie Gray

When celebrity couples are humble and genuine, we feel more connected to them and admire them even more. Whether they have simple lifestyles outside of work, stay low key by avoiding the public eye, or live in an average sized home, we love celebrity couples who live modestly. Our favorite stars in celebrity relationships are more down to earth and endearing when they’re living modestly, although they have so much success. We can all take relationship advice from these celebs!

Cupid has compiled a list of five celebrity couples who live modestly:

1. Sarah Jessica Parker & Matthew Broderick: One of the cutest celebrity couples in Hollywood, for years, has been Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick. The actors married in 1997 in a celebrity wedding and have three celebrity babies together. Although Parker’s character, Carrie Bradshaw, on Sex and the City was super into spending money on designer clothing, Parker opts for dressing her kids in Gap clothes and hand-me-downs. Although she has a net worth of almost $100 million, this celebrity relationship is genuine, which is likely why their marriage works so well!

4. Mariska Hargitay & Peter Hermann: The Law & Order SVU actress, Mariska Hargitay, has garnered the reputation of being humble and down to earth. She and her actor husband, Peter Hermann, are also modest when it comes to finances. They put most of their income in savings for the future and have said they want to be good role models for their children, so they live as if they don’t have a lot of money. Although they earn a swell living in the entertainment industry, they enjoy living low key and showing their children how the working class does it. Props to them!

5. Jay Leno & Mavis Leno: Jay Leno, the former star of The Tonight Show With Jay Leno, and his wife Mavis Leno have been married for years and choose to live quite modestly. Although he made millions on his late night talk show, they don’t spend much of his earnings from that. A big portion of the income that finances their lifestyle actually comes from his stand-up comedy paychecks. A big round of applause to the Leno family for keeping it successful and simple!
