Cupid's Pulse Article: Celebrity Couples Who Love Fourth of JulyCupid's Pulse Article: Celebrity Couples Who Love Fourth of July

By Shannon Seibert

Tis the season to take pride in your homeland and rock the colors of vigilance, perseverance and justice. It’s also the day where we sport killer bikinis, chow on barbecue and watch amazing fireworks displays. The best part about the holiday, though, is that it’s a day in which our entire country takes pride in their homeland, especially our celebrities. We’ve pulled together the envy-worthy patriotic plans and traditions of these stars to hopefully inspire a little Independence Day tradition in your own household:

Jessica Simpson and Eric Johnson: Jessica Simpson and Eric Johnson will have two reasons to celebrate this weekend. After being engaged since 2010,  the couple has chosen to wed on July 4th. This all-American occasion will definitely be a party worth remembering.

Idea for you: You may not have been married on the Fourth, but that doesn’t mean you can’t celebrate your love. Have an intimate anniversary party underneath the fireworks with your love. Get silly and stuff American flag cake in each other’s faces, wedding style.

Beyonce and Jay Z: Queen B has always been a fan of the holidays. With Blue Ivy around B and Jay Z are bound to have some Fourth of July fun. Last year the singer struck a pose against a vintage car in flag-print denim shorts. Looking forward to this year’s photoshoot B!

Idea for you: Have your own star-studded photoshoot! Together with your love dress up in all of the patriotic attire you can find. Then take your man around town and find your most historical sites. Snap some selfies together, or strike your best model poses.

Eddie Cibrian and LeAnn Rimes: Last year the couple attended Rimes’ Fourth of July performance with Cibrian’s two sons. The family of four gathered around for a quick photo of them decked out in holiday attire. Rimes had tweeted about how happy she was to spend time with her man and the boys.

Idea for you: Nothing says ‘America’ like a good ‘ole country concert. This time of year, tours are in full swing. Hop on Ticketmaster with your man and surf the web for some neat Independence Day deals on your favorites, such as Miranda Lambert.

Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber: The past year has been plenty rocky for Jelena, but this time last year the couple was in full-swing of celebration. Gracing Instagram with an adorable selfie, the pair sent fans screaming about their Fourth of July return.

Idea for you: Connect with old friends while celebrating your freedom. The Fourth is a great day to reach out to your “neighbors” under law and check in to see how they are doing.

Josh Kelly and Katherine Heigl: The Kelley family spent July 4th of 2013 poolside at their home in Utah, making a splash in the holiday’s festivities. The former Grey’s Anatomy actress posted adorable photos of her two daughters and her hubby on Twitter, wishing the nation a happy birthday.

Idea for you: Host a pool party with your family- friends. Have a potluck and ask your guests to bring an item along to share. This way there will be plenty of food and fun to go around.

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West: The Kardashian family has never disappointed on the subject of partying. This year there are rumors of a Kardashian family get-together which will include all of the usual prospects. The Wests will be celebrating their daughter North’s second Independence Day this year.

Idea for you: Take the day to just be with the family. Set up a barbecue buffet for you and your man’s closest family members. This way you can see whether your Uncle Joe’s fireworks outshine Grandpa Jim’s this year while spending time with your loved ones.
