When you think of a shotgun wedding, you think of two people who are trying to make a wrong situation turn into a right one. Usually, these weddings are held out of necessity as opposed to love, and they often end in disaster.
However, there are some couples in Hollywood whose shotgun weddings turned into the best decisions of their lives!
1. Jessica Alba and Cash Warren
Alba and Warren were together for more than a year before they got married, but it was her pregnancy that sealed the deal. The couple was married at a courthouse in a private ceremony when she was eight months pregnant with her daughter, Honor. Now, the couple has been together for eight years and have two children.
2. Ginnifer Goodwin and Josh Dallas
The Once Upon A Time co-stars dated for two years before Goodwin got pregnant. They were married when she was eight months pregnant, and Goodwin says you could definitely tell.
“We’re both Southern so I was literally barefoot and pregnant at our wedding. I was afraid I’d fall over,” she joked.
One month after their wedding, the couple welcomed their son Oliver. They're still together now, and have another son named Hugo.
3. Savannah Guthrie and Mike Feldman
The 42-year-old Today Show co-host got married in March of 2014. At the wedding, Guthrie revealed that she and Feldman were expecting their first child, Vale!
"It's funny, 'cause we set the wedding date, I bought my dress, and then I found out," she said. "So I've been doing a little praying that I would fit in it, and it all worked out."
Today, they're still going strong, and welcomed their second child, Charles.
4. James Van Der Beek and Kimberly Brook
Two months after his divorce from Heather McComb, Van Der Beek married business consultant, Kimberly Brook. One month after the wedding, the couple welcomed their first child, a daughter named Olivia. Seven years later, the couple is still totally in love and are the parents to four children.
