9 Celebrity Couples Who Had Kids Before Tying the Knot

You know the old playground rhyme, “Jack and Jill sitting in a tree K-I-S-S-I-N-G, first comes love, then comes marriage, then comes the baby in a baby carriage.” Well these celebrity couples who had kids before tying the knot prove that there doesn’t have to be a particular order of doing things. These nine couples are happy living in a committed relationship with their partner, and don’t think a marriage certificate is necessary to welcome children into the world.

Gosling and Mendez first met on the set of the 2012 film, The Place Beyond the Pines.
