Celebrity couples can be so sneaky sometimes. Literally, no one is a fan of it. Covering up, dodging paparazzi and trying to act 'normal' is just not what fans what. But, they must conceal some parts of their lives to retain a certain sense of normalcy and first dates definitely fall into that category. As much as we'd love to have been a fly on the wall during Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez's first date, they left us guessing whether or not Jelena was actually a thing for months.
And this same mentality goes for almost every single celebrity couple you can think of. I mean, look at Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth. Are they engaged? Are they married? Do they even LIKE each other? Well, yeah they do. However, they are so hush hush about their relationship that shippers don't much more than that. But, that's not good enough for us. We need answers and we need them now.
The editors here at J-14 couldn't help but do some digging to find out what does a celebrity couple's first date look like? Are they having a casual dinner in the back room of some crazy expensive restaurant or are they going all out, jet setting to the nearest secluded island and spending days away from the buzz? Honestly, anything goes. We've rounded up a list of celebrity couples and figured out what really went on during their first dates. To no one's surprise, they are much more normal than you might think.
Meghan Trainor and Daryl Sabara went on a double date.
Meghan said, "We went on a double date – bowling and karaoke. He kissed me at the bowling alley. I told my security to step outside 'cause I didn't want to be watched. LOL. He was the best kisser ever. I know I'm really good at kissing, but I was shocked when he was."
Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik couldn't keep their cool, they liked each other so much.
Gigi said, "He was in New York to come to the Victoria’s Secret fashion show and ended up not coming. I was like, I’ll play it cool, and go to the after party and he wasn’t there. It was later on that week that we ended up going on our first date. We played it cool for about 10 minutes, and then I was like, you’re really cute. We connected really quickly, and we had the same sense of humor and just started sharing videos."
Ariana Grande and Mac Miller kissed when the cameras stopped rolling.
Ariana and Mac have been friends for a long time but it was really when she kissed him they consider the moment love happened. After they performed, Mac said, "Pleasure working with you." and Ariana replied, "I’ll be in touch." After that, the cameras were turned off, Ariana went back and kissed Mac. The rest is history. I guess you could say this is the coolest first date ever – performing and kissing on stage, a literal dream.
Bailee Madison and Alex Lange went to Disneyland.
This was not so secret because, in true Alex fashion, he vlogged the whole trip to Disneyland. At one point he said, "For those of you who don’t know, Bailee plays young Snow White on Once Upon a Time … so we thought, what better way to celebrate than to get matching Snow White pins…Oh my God, I’m literally dating a Disney princess. Wait, does this make me a Disney prince?" Yes, yes it does Alex.
Dove Cameron and Thomas Doherty went for a casual dinner.
He told RAW, "Me and Dove, on our first date, we went for dinner, and it was a bit of a secret at the start. So, can’t tell anyone!" I mean, we would have loved more details here but if a dinner date reveal is all we're going to get then we have to take it.
Iggy Azalea and Nick Young hit up Target on their first date.
While these two aren't together anymore, it's still fun to see what they did on their first date. Apparently, they went to Target which is kind of bizarre. I mean, can you imagine seeing these two walk in? Iggy said, "You really get to know someone in a Target: what kinda quilts are you into, what are your favorite movies, what kinda snacks do you like? I got some socks and a ring pop."
Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth went to Starbucks.
Miley and Liam win the award for the most basic couple ever and we're all for it. They first met and kissed on the set of The Last Song so Miley said they kind of skipped the whole 'first date' phase of their relationship. But, from what she can remember, they did take some time to go to Starbucks together. She said, "We went on a Starbucks date. That's what you do when you meet your co-star that you have to be kissing for months and months and months."
Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds went on a double date with other people.
Ryan said, "We went on a double date. She was on a date with another guy and I was on a date with another girl. That was the most awkward date for their perspective probably because we were just like fireworks coming across."
Chrissy Teigen and John Legend had burgers on their first date, naturally.
It was on set of John's "Stereo" music video in 2007 when Chrissy said, "I walked into John's dressing room to meet him, and he was ironing in his underwear. I said, 'You do your own ironing?!' He said, 'Of course I do.' I gave him a hug." During the shoot, they talked, danced and ate In-N-Out late at night. "I'm not going to lie. We hooked up."
Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez were actually set up by their managers.
Okay, so this isn't exactly their first date but we had to include it because, you know, Jelena. They were set up by Justin's manager and Selena's mom! She said, "His manager called my mom who's my manager. He's been in my life for so long and it's just nice to have someone who knows what you're going through." So, while we don't know exactly what happened after the set up was planned, we know how the Jelena era began and that's good enough for us!
