I’m not really “into” celebrities. Don’t get me wrong, I know more than is probably healthy about the A/B/Z List, but not because I’m a superfan or anything. I just collect useless knowledge like some people collect Vogue magazines.
Anyhow. I’m not interested in “what Rita Ora wore” or “Blake Liveley’s favourite shampoo”. I don’t follow many celebs on social media unless they’re exceptionally funny, or I’ve met them somewhere. But there is one couple I follow on Instagram (in a completely non-stalky but they make me happy way), and I’m not ashamed to admit it. I’m slightly in love with them.
Storm Uechtritz and Ronan Keating are, quite simply, perfection. Of course their lifestyle is ridiculously enviable, what with Ronans’s $25million(ish) fortune and Storm’s successful career and Royal connections (she’s Prince William’s seventh cousin). But lots of people have money, and that’s not why I can’t get enough of them. It’s their undeniable, delightful love for each other that has me perusing their photo feeds on a weekly basis. It’s not posed, media-whore “lets look like we love each other” love. No. It’s real, sneaking moments to be together, belly laugh, best friend, passionate love, and it just oozes out of everything they do.
I adore them.
Now – let’s not get it twisted. I know Ronan was not quite so perfect in his previous marriage and I’m never a fan of people who cheat. However, sometimes things are just meant to be and it seems like Storm and Ronan are just that.
I wish every person in the world could find a love that looks like this. The world would be such a lovely place if every face was lit up like theirs – I’m grinning just looking at the way they are together. Love is such a wonderful gift. Please don’t waste it on anyone who doesn’t make your heart jump every day, whose laughter doesn’t ring in your ears like music, whose smile doesn’t instantly make you smile too.
Congratulations on finding each other Storm and Ronan. Your happiness is infectious. I hope it lasts forever.
