While dutifully signing fan autographs at his Faith In The Future World Tour show in Jakarta, the Perfect hitmaker, 32, scribbled his signature on an Indonesian marriage certificate.
We would say it was accidental, but according to the fan – whose friends bagged the unique autograph opportunity for her – he asked, ‘Is it legit?’ before saying: ‘Okay I’ll sign it.’
It doesn’t end there. After signing on the dotted line, when asked whether he was staying in Jakarta, Louis was said to have replied: ‘If my wife wants me to.’
But don’t burn your diaries covered in ‘I love Louis’ just yet, as marriages in Jakarta require a ceremony to be official.
While Louis may not actually have suddenly wed one of his fans, there have been multiple instances of celebs that have fallen head over heels for those who admire their work.
Here we round up 15 celebs who dated, married, and even started families with one of their fans.
Louis isn’t the first One Directioner to date one of the pop band’s fans with Liam Payne beginning a romance with Maya Henry in 2019, four years after she posted a photo of herself at a meet-and-greet with the band on Instagram.
The couple got engaged in 2020, before calling off their relationship in 2021. Liam is now dating Kate Cassidy, who has claimed she ‘manifested’ dating him when she was 10 years old and a huge fan of 1D.
Hailey Bieber (previously Baldwin) revealed herself as a Belieber in 2011 when she posted on Twitter: ‘@justinbieber great seeing you today. You were really really good, enjoy ur thanksgiving!’ and later posted about buying herself some Justin Bieber wrapping paper.
Their whirlwind romance did not last, however, with the pair splitting 10 months later.
Maureen Starkey Tigrett met The Beatles drummer Ringo Starr at the Cavern Club where she had gone to see the band perform in 1963. Maureen was an early fan of the group and regularly watched their lunchtime performances at the iconic Liverpool club.
Starr popped the question at the Ad Lib Club in London on January 20, 1965, with the pair tying the knot the same year. They welcomed three children – Zak, Jason, and Lee – before their divorce in 1975.
Billie Joe Armstrong
Adrienne Armstrong (formerly Nesser) attended an early Green Day show in Minneapolis in 1990, asking vocalist Billie Joe Armstrong for a CD of their work – and little did she know, she had met the love of her life.
Adrienne and Billie Joe struck up a relationship the same year, and she inspired the song 2000 Light Years Away which features on the band’s 1991 album Kerplunk. They wed in 1994 and have two children, Joey and Jakob.
Danny Bonaduce first crossed paths with former substitute teacher Amy Railsback in a Los Angeles Starbucks in 2007. She approached Danny to tell him she was a fan of his show Breaking Bonaduce, which followed the actor during his then-marriage to second wife Gretchen Hillmer.
And coffee turned into romance as the pair began dating the same year. Danny got down on one knee and proposed in 2009, and the lovebirds got married just a year later.
In 1990, Marjorie Harvey (previously Bridges) walked in late to a Steve Harvey comedy show. He paused his set, telling the crowd: ‘Oh, I’m sorry. I don’t know who this is, but I’m gonna marry her.’
And, not for the first time on this list, he was absolutely right as Steve and Marjorie wed in 2007. Steve adopted Marjorie’s three children, Lori, Morgan and Jason, while Marjorie became stepmother to Steve’s four children, Brandi, Karli, Broderick, and Wynton.
Angela Jones was working at Universal Studios Orlando as an event planner during a Wizarding World of Harry Potter event in 2016 when she met Neville Longbottom actor Matthew Lewis. An avid fan of the franchise, Angela described her job as a ‘dream’ on her blog (per Bustle).
Matthew wasted no time in popping the question as they got engaged the same year and eventually married in 2018.
And, like Steve, the actor was absolutely right when she later met John in 1987 when they worked together on the 1989 film The Experts. John and Kelly got married in 1991 and were together until Kelly’s death in 2020. They shared three children, Ella Bleu, Benjamin, and their late son Jett who died aged 16 in 2009.
