Nichols and Latifah have reportedly been dating since 2013, after meeting at a taping of Dancing with the Stars.
Since 2013, the couple has kept an incredibly low profile -- an amazing feat for two people in the entertainment industry.

Paulson revealed in an episode of Watch What Happens Live that Holland actually slid into her Twitter DMs! At the start of 2016, they made their red carpet debut after Sarah's birthday out to her "most favorite human".
“We are very different. The fact that I am older makes me steadier,” Holland shared with Closer Weekly. “I don’t worry about some of the things that she may worry about. I might be a steadying influence. She’s very excitable. I think I’m the person she can quiet down with. I’m hopefully that sense of home.”
#6 ELLEN DEGENERES AND PORTIA DE ROSSI
For over a decade, DeGeneres and de Rossi have been a staple of Hollywood and actually one of the longest-lasting celebrity couples.

In 2015, the couple released a children's album together titled Deer Sounds.
“Even on our first date, Linda was talking about [writing a children’s album],” Sara told Entertainment Tonight. “These songs just started to show up when he was born and then it just got really exciting because we were all in the house and all a part of it, all throwing in ideas and making artwork … It was a very sweet experience.”
#4 NEIL PATRICK HARRIS AND DAVID BURTKA
The beloved actor and celebrity chef have been together for over a decade and a half. They met in 2004 and married a decade later, so they've just recently celebrated their 16th anniversary together. Harris shared with Us Weekly that they "tend to communicate and talk a lot," which has probably helped build their long-lasting relationship.
The married couple recently shared their Sunday routine (or lack of a routine) with the New York Times. Mr. Burtka said, "There is no consistency to our routine except that we’re together and spending quality time with the kids." The whole family lives in New York and consists of their fraternal twins, son, Gideon and daughter, Harper.

They tied the knot in 2013 and there are no signs that they’ll be having kids any time soon.
In 1973, Johnny Carson asked Tomlin about marriage and whether she wanted kids. “The audience just got dead silent, because they were like, ‘What’s she going to say?’” she reminisced with Vanity Fair, "And I said what I said, ‘Well, I like children, but I don’t want to bear children. By the way, who has custody of yours?’ And everyone laughed.”
#2 MARIA BELLO AND DOMINIQUE CRENN
Shortly after they started their relationship, Crenn was diagnosed with breast cancer, and Bello has stuck by her through the battle. “You really learn how someone rolls when they’re sick," Bello told People, "And I loved the way she rolls through life and dances through life even when she’s really sick.” The two have been engaged since this past December.
“We’re really excited about this new chapter,” Bello told E! News. “It’s cool to be out together in Hollywood doing this thing I’ve been doing for 25 years, but with somebody, I really enjoy doing it with. Dom’s a chef so we’ve been to some of her things, but not to Hollywood things.”
#1 JODIE FOSTER AND ALEXANDRA HEDISON
Back in April 2014, Jodie and Alexandra celebrate their nuptials together but their romantic life a total secret. An inside source once said that "when they're together, it can be like they're in their own world," and they reaffirmed the statement during the second annual Paris Photo Show.
Both Foster and Hedison are actors who have stepped away from the camera. Foster has directed episodes of popular Netflix series including Orange Is the New Black and Black Mirror. Hedison starred in TV dramas like "Melrose Place", but realized the career wasn't for her. Now she works as a fine art photographer.
