For the first time in human history, we’re now granted opportunities to see into the inner workings of celebrity relationships. Years ago, they were closely guarded secrets, with leaks occasionally coming by way of well-timed PR machinations. Now, celebrities are electing to share their lives with fans and followers via social media and, by doing so, are taking the narrative into their own hands.
Last week, the stars got gushy over their Valentines. For some, the holiday was a cause to celebrate their significant others, while others paid tribute to important family members. Some handled it with humor à la Ryan Reynolds (who baked an adorable lopsided cake for his wife Blake Lively), while others went all out with sentiment, like Will Smith praising his ride-or-die wife Jada Pinkett Smith. Regardless of where the love was directed, these celebrity posts are so sweet that they have the power to melt even the iciest heart.
