Ludacris and Eudoxie

Ludacris popped the question to his longtime girlfriend on a vacation with their celebrity friends. Two weeks later they were married.

5. Kim Kardashian and Kanye West

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West

Considering Kim got engaged while still married to now ex husband Kris Humphries, is proof that we were surprised that Kanye popped the question. Soon after the engagement was announced, the couple were pregnant with their first child.

6. Evan Ross and Ashlee Simpson

Evan Ross and Ashlee Simpson

These two married quietly…almost as quiet as their relationship was. Not many people knew the son of Diana Ross and the younger sister of pop singer Jessica Simpson were dating, let alone ran in the same circles.

7. Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon

Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon

Mariah and Nick are currently going through a messy divorce, but before things got ugly, they were married for six years and had two adorable twins. And way before that? The news of their engagement certainly surprised us all.

8. Chad ‘Ochocinco’ and Evelyn Lozada

Chad ‘Ochocinco’ and Evelyn Lozada

Even though their split made national headlines after only a month of marriage, the former NFL pro head butted his new wife. Even before the nuptials, their issues on Lozada’s show, ‘Love & Hip Hop Miami’ highlighted the couples issues.

9. Big Sean & Naya Rivera

Big Sean & Naya Rivera

Big Sean and Naya broke off their engagement shortly after he proposed (she made headlines when she announced she was married to her childhood sweetheart a few months later). The unlikely pairing definitely threw us for a loop.

10. Kelly Rowland and Tim Witherspoon

Kelly Rowland and Tim Witherspoon

Although they’re married now, most of us had no clue that she was in super lowkey relationship with her manager Tim Witherspoon. The couple are now expecting a little boy any day now.

11. Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom

Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom

After only knowing each other for a month, the youngest Kardashian sister married former NBA baller Lamar Odom in a lavish ceremony. The two were married for a few years before Khloe filed for divorce. Lamar had a very public battle with drugs.

12. Shad Moss and Erica Mena

Shad Moss and Erica Mena

The reality television star and rapper/actor surprised the world when they uploaded a photo to their social media networks of Erica’s million dollar rock. It’s an odd pairing seeing as though no one knew they were even dating.

13. Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise

Although they’re currently divorced, the announcement of their engagement surprised many considering their age difference.
