PinkPoutine has been noticing this recent craze in celebrity-athlete dating, as exemplified by Gisele Bundchan (PP’s major supermodel obsession) , Hilary Duff, Kim Kardashian, Eva Longoria, Jessica Simpson, Carrie Underwood, and uh, Paris Hilton (however long this new boy toy would last for her). I think it’s brilliant. We can not name a type of guy that can possibly be man-er than althetes. And paired with the most gorgeous and elegant ladies (note the exception: Miss Hilton), it’s like a match made in a place even more magical than heaven itself. It screams out eye candy (TWICE!) everytime they step out in public and showing their affection for one another, god it makes my sweet tooth ache.
A few worth mentioning… because PP adores cutesy lovebirds!
Gisele Bundchen x Tom Brady
These two just got married (and apparently getting married again with a second ceremony). I LOVE LOVE LOVE her and honestly I’ve always thought she would end up with someone who wasn’t in the spotlight that much but yet still famous for a reason (Leo Dicaprio just didn’t do it for me). Even though this NFL player is a semi-manwhore (the ex-gf was preggers while he began dating our lovely Gisele), he’s still pretty yummy!
Hilary Duff x Mike Comrie
Dude, he’s a pro Canadian hockey player (Ottawa Senators), we like we like! And because of this relationship, my fellow Canadians get to spot Hilary in Canada every so often! She plays a really supportive role to her boyfriend as she is often photographed in freeeezing Canada to cheer on her man ever since they began dating in 2007. I mean, trading off the more interesting summer/spring wardrobe in L.A. for boring winter jackets in freezing cold weather? Now that’s some sacrifice, I can tell already she’s pretty serious!
Jessica Simpson x Tony Romo
Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo gave Jessica Simpson some hardcore love potion that made her so in love that she almost always mentions him whenever she’s on stage (at least everytime she sings “You are My Sunday“). I’m not that fond of their love; I think ever since Jess dated him, her career has gone downhill and she seems to care less about herself and devotes all her attention to her beau. I mean, what is she doing with country music and that high waist, black top outfit? (I have to say that oufit did her well, at least it made everyone remember her existence again).
Victoria Beckham x David Beckham
This, doesn’t get any better. They are the couple of all couples, the hottest of all hottest, the famous of all famous, and of course, the rich and wealthy of ALL rich and wealthy couples. I thought it would be appropriate to end this post with Victoria and David Beckham – the textbook example of a classic celeb-athlete couple. I suppose we all know their FYIs by heart, and even have it memorized backwards. Careful, your keyboard is not drool-resistant.
