The pair met for the 1st time during a commercial shoot in 2013, but rumours of their relationship only began in 2015. Their relationship was made official in late 2016.

2. Shila Amzah & Haris Idraki Elias
Shila and Haris are newlyweds who just had their wedding 4 months ago in Putrajaya. Though the 2 only began dating last year, they have known each other for quite some time. The Chinese-singing sensation apparently had a crush on Haris since 2010, and he is actually the older brother of her friend. She even wrote a song for him titled “Sedar” which she included in her 2013 self-titled album. Throughout the years, the pair kept in touch, and it was only last year that Haris found the courage to propose to Shila. Due to their respective jobs, they are often away from each other – Haris in UK while Shila in China or Malaysia. But whenever they reunite, the pop star will always welcome him with some nice home cooked meals.

Though Tun Mahathir and his wife are not exactly celebrities, the elderly couple is a huge inspiration to many Malaysians for their longstanding love and marriage. Even when Tun Mahathir decided to lead Pakatan Harapan during the 14th General Election, his wife showed continuous and unconditional support to her ageing husband. The lovebirds have proven that age is just a number and despite their old age, they still do things that any normal couple would do such as going on a date, teasing each other, and making funny poses together during photoshoots.

Known to their fans as Fattzura, the pair got married last year in November.

Neither confirmed the rumours initially or revealed how far their relationship had gone prior to their engagement. Fans dubbed Fattzura as the Malaysian version of Posh and Becks, the nickname for the English celebrity super-couple Victoria and David Beckham. Though the 2 are always busy with their own projects, they never fail to make time for each other. Now that’s love.

7. Anwar Ibrahim & Wan Azizah
Similar to Tun M and his wife, Dato Seri Anwar Ibrahim and his family is well known in Malaysia as he is the de facto leader of Pakatan Harapan coalition which Tun M led in his place while he was in prison. Anwar has been the victim of many conspiracies and has spent more than 10 years in prison. But despite all the allegations thrown at him, his wife Dato’ Seri Dr. Wan Azizah stays truthful and loyal to him. She temporarily led PKR (1 of the main component parties of PH), took care of the family on her husband’s behalf, and patiently awaited his return. Wan Azizah even rejected the Agong’s offer to become PM and requested for her husband to be given full pardon instead. What a loyal wife!
8. Jenn Chia & Jon Lidell
Jenn and Jon is definitely one of the most adorable Malaysian couples on YouTube. Though Jon is technically not a Malaysian (cos IC-wise, he’s English), he is a Malaysian at heart as he was raised here when his family moved to the country 20 years ago. On the other hand, Jenn is a purebred Malaysian, born and raised in KL. As you might have guessed, both of them got to know each other through YouTube when they were working on a music video pretending to be a couple, and then ended up becoming a real couple. The 2 often post their funny couple antics on social media, from song covers to hilarious skits, and all of them are super fun to watch.
9. Marion Caunter & SM Nasaruddin
Malaysian Chinese host/emcee Marion Caunter gained the nation’s attention when she converted to Islam and married business tycoon SM Nasaruddin. Their grand wedding was one of the most talked about weddings in the local entertainment scene and it was rumoured to have cost around RM5 million. Both of them are very successful with their respective business, but despite their busy schedules, they always find ways to make time and accommodate one another. The duo currently has 3 children – 2 daughters and a son.
10. Carey Ng & Roen Cian
Former Malaysian beauty queen Carey Ng first met her entrepreneur husband Roen Cian during the bikini segment of Miss Universe 2013 pageant held at one of Cian’s establishments called The Pool, and from there, the romance sparked. “I have never seen her in my life and I wanted to get to know her,” Roen told Prestige Magazine. Little did he know, the woman that caught his interest would become the winner of the beauty pageant and ultimately – his wife.
After 4 years of courtship, the couple finally got married on February 2017 and welcomed their firstborn baby girl in September. The pair started the hashtag #keeproenandcareyon prior to their wedding, which we assumed is a play on the words “keep rowing and carry on”.
