Our 5 Favorite Brit/Yank Couples

By

John Krasinski and Emily Blunt
These celeb couples will spend the 4th of July celebrating the bond between the UK and the US.

Although most of us Yankees will be celebrating the United States' independence from Great Britain, there are some who have bridged the gap between our countries with love. Here now is a list of famous Americans who have pledged allegiance to their British spouses.

1. Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin - After years of dating all-American boys like Brad Pitt and Ben Affleck, Gwyneth married British band Coldplay's lead singer, Chris. The couple has been married for seven years, have two children and split their time between New York City and London. Despite a few tabloid rumors, Gwyneth and Chris seem like one of the more grounded and happy couples in the entertainment biz. Is Chris Martin Cheating On Gwyneth?

2. Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale - While touring with No Doubt in 1995, Gwen met Bush's chick-magnet singer/guitarist, Gavin, and the rest is history. The pair married seven years later—with one wedding in London and one in Los Angeles. The two hit a rough patch in 2004, when his ex-girlfriend, British designer Pearl Lowe, revealed that Gavin was the real father of her daughter Daisy. However, Gwen didn't declare her independence from Gavin. She stuck by her man and now has two children with him.

3. John Krasinksi and Emily Blunt - Every girl in America fell in love with John when he turned up on our TV screens as Jim on The Office—an Americanized version of a British hit show. He briefly dated co-stars Rashida Jones (The Office) and Renee Zellweger (Leatherheads) before Anne Hathaway set him up in 2008 with her beautiful British Devil Wears Prada co-star, Emily. The happy couple is reportedly tying the knot on July 10—next week!
