Gallery: 11 of the longest celebrity engagements of all time – up to 29 years (Hello!)
There's no correct amount of time to leave between getting engaged and getting married – it varies massively depending on the couple. While some stars have been known to tie the knot as soon after their engagement, the likes of Kate Hudson, Jennifer Aniston and Oprah Winfrey have left it several years before walking down the aisle – almost 30 years for chat show host Oprah! With the COVID-19 pandemic causing many couples to postpone their nuptials over the past year, it can be comforting to know that long engagements are very common, even with A-listers. Take a look at the celebrity couples who had plenty of time to plan their big day… Amy Adams and Darren Le Gallo Engagement time: 7 years Amy Adams and her now-husband Darren Le Gallo have taken every stage of their relationship at their own pace. After dating for 11 years, the pair got engaged in 2008 but didn't say 'I do' until 2015 – even welcoming their daughter Aviana in the meantime. "I know he's just completely capable and lovely, and beautiful and offers something I could never hope to offer just in the nature of his being," Amy said of Darren during a 2013 interview with Vanity Fair.
