Happy National Loving Day!
Did you know that the anniversary of the 1967 United States Supreme Court decision “Loving v. Virginia” — which struck down all anti-miscegenation laws remaining in sixteen U.S. states.
In honor of the national day of “being with the one you love, regardless of age, race, or gender”, take a look at some of our favorite unorthodox couples that actually worked out for the best.
1. Kimora Lee Simmons, Russell Simmons & Djimon Honsou
No one does a blended family like the Simmons / Hounsou / Leissner clan.
2. Tamara Mowry & Adam Housley
Tamera has always been open about the struggles she’s faced being in an interracial relationship with husband Adam. But two beautiful kids and seven years of marriage later, love obviously won.
3. George Lucas & Mellody Hobson
Interracial love has always been a taboo topic with older generations. But the Star Wars creator and his beautiful make it look so easy.
4. Alicia Keys & Swizz Beatz
Their union was a little toxic at first (considering that Swizz was allegedly still married to Mashonda at the time). But alas — love won.
5. Tina Turner & Erwin Bach
6. Grace Hightower & Robert DeNiro
Robert DeNiro was always into chocolate sisters. I mean, he directed “Bronx Tale”!
7. Opal & Ron Perlman
Who knew that Hellboy was into sistas? Beautiful couple.
8. Heather Headley & Brian Musso
Not many knew that the neo soul queen had a White bae. But 15 years of marriage later proves that love always wins.
