By April Littleton

Most of the famous and wealthy individuals we see on our TV screens and in the magazines enjoy having their love life on display for the whole world to see. However, there are a select few who prefer to keep their relationship out of harm’s way. Cupid has a list of celebrities who manage to keep their private life – private:

1. Dolly Parton and Carl Thomas Dean: The country singer has been married to Dean since May, 30, 1996. They met at a Wishy-Washy laundromat on her first day in Nashville with his first words to her being, “Y’all gonna get sunburnt out there, little lady.” Since marrying, Dean has only seen Parton perform once and he rarely makes any public appearances with his wife. Parton and Dean have no children together, but she commented on his romantic side in an interview stating that Dean does spontaneous things to surprise her and sometimes writes her poems.

2. Beyonce and Jay-Z: This couple kept their relationship under wraps for quite a while. It was rumored that the couple began dating after collaborating together on the hit single “03 Bonnie and Clyde”. The lovebirds took it a step further by secretly marrying on April 4, 2008. When it comes to the status of their relationship, the couple have since eased up on their privacy, especially when Beyonce publicly announced her pregnancy during a live performance on the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards.

3. Morris Chestnut and Pam Byse: Who knew that The Best Man Holiday co-star was married? Well he is – and has been for 18 years now. Chestnut and his wife Pam have two children together, Grant and Paige. In an interview with Upscale magazine, the actor explained what makes their marriage successful. “I let my wife be the woman. You know? I let her be the woman…. And she, in turn, when it comes down to it, she lets me be the man,” Chestnut said.

5. Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green: It’s no secret that these two stars have been in an on-again, off-again relationship since 2004, but the fact that they managed to hide the birth of their firstborn for three weeks should speak volumes. Fox gave birth to baby Noah Sept 27, 2012, but didn’t publicly announce the news until much later.  Recently, the couple told the media that they are expecting their second child together sometime this year.
