As most of you know from the tons of pictures of couples on your social media timelines, yesterday was #nationalboyfriendday. (Who makes this stuff up?) So we decided to put together a short list of some of our favorite couples to celebrate.
1) Gucci Mane & Keyshia Kaoir
Even though no one believed this was the real Gucci Mane after his initial prison release, the hip hop community quickly adapted to his new look and weight loss and even warmed up to the idea that he was really in love with his Jamaican girlfriend Keyshia Kaoir. The couple has become a hip hop favorite and a constant under the hashtag “relationship goals.” Keyshia does everything with Gucci, even going on stage with him (as a handler in my mind because I still think that this fool is a clone…but-eh!) and they have a wedding special coming soon through BET. (although I believe that they’re married already.)
(watch the video of their proposal below)
2) Scrappy & “The Bam”
I’ve had love for Bambi ever since I saw her on Basketball Wives LA as Malaysia‘s homegirl from Compton. She was raw, honest, and gorgeous. When she left BBWLA and appeared on Love and Hip Hop: Atlanta I was ready to see what she was up to. Bambi’s on again and off again relationship with fellow LHH Atlanta cast mate, Scrappy, has been the latest tea on countless blogs, but something about these two just feels right to me. Scrappy is a wannabe player but Bambi is his best friend as well as his girl and that’s a connection that’s hard to find. These two are the “underdog” couple in my mind. Rumor has it that they secretly married recently. (Yay!)

3) The Shumperts
Actress/Singer Teyana Taylor and her NBA baller husband Iman Shumpert are a perfect match. These two support each other, match each other’s fly, and are goofy as hell together. They wear matching pajamas, capes, and dote on their baby girl Junie with relentlessly. Yes, we’ve heard about a few cases of infidelity with Iman, but the couple has pulled through it stronger than ever and recently celebrated their one year wedding anniversary. ( I know it’s national boyfriend day, but hubby starts off as a boyfriend!)
