We asked our staff and Twitter followers to share their favourite celebrity couples (who have kids or babies on the way), and the responses came pouring in!
Some of these couples are obvious choices, and some...refreshing! Indeed, given all the buzz around Oscar-winner Ben Affleck right now, it's no surprise that he and Jennifer Garner were by far the overall favourite — I couldn't include all the great quotes that came in, alas!
Click on to see who made the list!
"They truly seem real. Ben's Oscars 'marriage-is-work' speech crystallized my feeling that he's an average hubby who, i.e., forgets to put the dishes away. Ben was being honest and, in the most open forum, telling his wife, 'I love you.'" — Olga Brilant, Online Director/General Manager
"They’ve done a great job keeping their kids out of the spotlight. They look like a regular family and are never in the news sharing their parenting views like they’re experts. Also Ben will forever be on my laminated list." — Nadine Silverthorne, Online Managing Editor
"They seem so down to earth! I know people rag on Jennifer’s everyday style, but she looks like a normal mom. They're also both talented in their own respects, so they don’t have to push their kids in front of the camera to be seen." — Katie Dupuis, Managing Editor
"Many of my favourite photos of Obama are with Michelle. They seem to have a special connection and a strong friendship. I love that two strong, powerful people aren’t afraid to show each other a little affection."
— Kristy Woudstra, Online Editor
"They may be in the White House, but they set morals and values for their daughters."
— justcher1175 via Twitter
"My faves are the Obamas. Always the Obamas."
— Dave Grant, Web Producer
"They seem like they do everything to keep Willow grounded and strong plus she's adorable!"
"I love Pink & Corey Hart! They are great parents, always doing outdoor activities with Willow! No nanny in sight!"
— via Twitter
"They seem to have it down to a science. Fun, protective, cool, calm & knowledgable. "
— SachaCoutu via Twitter

"Quite possibly the most adorable longtime couple in Hollywood. Sarah Jessica Parker gets a lot of flack in the media and from TV viewers, but I‘ve always thought she was effortlessly charming. They just seem like a really nice couple and their personality and style differences complement one another." — Laura Grande, Online Editorial Coordinator
"Married for 15 years, Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick are a class act when it comes to celebrity parents. I equate them with so many things I love: New York City, theatre, sleek style. But most importantly, they starred in two of my favourite movies as a kid: Ferris Bueller's Day Off and Girls Just Want to Have Fun." — Kristy Woudstra, Online Editor

"How could I not choose Hugh Jackman and Deborra-Lee Furness? Not only are they my people (Aussies represent!), but their love seems so 'real' and untouched by Hollywood that I find myself wanting to sit other celebrities down in front of a poster of Hugh and his older wife and proclaim, 'This is how it's done, people. This is adoration and respect and commitment!'" — Hannah Terry-Whyte, Editorial Intern
"Hugh's career is on fire right now, and he's still such a family man. And, helping Jennifer Lawrence up off the floor as she accepted her Oscar? Awesome. Deborra-Lee has herself quite the quintessential gentleman. Love!" — Haley Overland, Online Writer/Editor

"I love this couple! So stylish, sleek and family-oriented. (Plus, their son Brooklyn is trying out for the same soccer team that my little cousins play for in England!) I think it’s awesome that they keep their kids busy and in sports despite their hectic travel schedule."
— Kerrie Lee Brown, Executive Editor

"Love the way the whole family encourages each other & steps back from their own careers to help each other."
— partymomma via Twitter
"I agree with Will and Jada Smith. Their family unit is amazing!"
— CandyMudry via Twitter
"These comedy cuties have been faves of mine since Ms. Bell’s days of playing Veronica Mars (and who could forget her love for sloths). Not only are they great at what they do, but they are also caring, compassionate human beings, who devote a lot of their time to making the world and our society a better place."
— Kate Stewart, Assistant Editor
"This couple is so under-the-radar most of the time, so whenever I see pictures of them with their little boys it’s always a pleasant surprise. They just seem so un-Hollywood and family-oriented." — Laura Grande, Online Editorial Coordinator

"Love Goldie and Kurt! I have sweet stories about them IRL.... They used to come to a restaurant I went to with their youngest son. Refused to be seated ahead of others in line. Always kind."
— DanielleASigne via Twitter
"I loved Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn...caught taking a picture of Kate Hudson's window ad recently."
— Nat_Rea via Twitter
"Not married but still together. They've made it work as a blended family in Hollywood!!!"

"As a rocker, I just love that they've passed their laid-back rocker style to their kids."
— amotherworld via Twitter
"I will admit that I wasn’t a bit fan of them being a couple when I first found out, but now that I see them in pre-baby mode, I’ve changed my mind! They are so excited about becoming parents that they seem to spread the joy around wherever they go."
— Cassandre Cadieux, Contributing Copy Editor

"Brad Pitt fangirl alert! I feel like I was one of the few people who actually thought Brad and Angelina would totally work as a couple. Ever since they first got together, Brad has been more engaged in global issues, charities and raising children. He even dresses better. They may be super-rich and impossibly good-looking, but I love them and their cute family."
— Laura Grande, Online Editorial Coordinator

"I shouldn’t like them, but I do. They’re just so much fun to watch."
— Kristy Woudstra, Online Editor
"Yeah, I shouldn't like them either. But, as an unabashed Kim fan, I love that she scored herself an A-lister, in spite of all the haters. 'Kimye' is totally entertaining, and they do look good together!"
— Haley Overland, Online Writer/Editor
"I love Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson. They’ve been married for 25 years...basically proving that celebrity couples can last."
— Stephanie Chow, Editorial Intern
"They've stood the test of time!"
— hezdixon via Twitter
"Why do I love Jay-Z and Beyonce? Not only are they a power couple, they are one of those couples you see and don’t doubt for a second how much they love each other. Plus, I think it’s pretty cool that they bailed on the Oscars to hang out with their friends. How down to earth is that?"
— Jamie Piper, Junior Designer
"Two amazing actors and awesome people!!!"
— kickassdreams via Twitter
"Down to earth and they have found a balance in life. Inspiring."
