11 Adorable throwback pics of celebrity couples making their first red carpet debuts together

Every romantic relationship has its milestones. From the first date, first kiss, and the first time you meet the parents - these are all momentous occasions in a couple's history.

But for lovers who hail from a world where paparazzi swarm, and millions of people watch your every move on social media, things are a little different. Celebrities like to keep their private lives a little more secret, and for good reason.

If fans and photographers were let in on every little thing – like where the first date was (likely a Michelin-star restaurant), what the 6-month anniversary gift was (probably a Lambo) or what the apartment where they first moved in together looked like (I'm guessing a penthouse with a rooftop jacuzzi) – the intimacy would be replaced with intrusion.

So instead, celebs prefer to keep things quiet. One milestone that the public is entitled to witness, however, is the magnificent red carpet debut. And why not? A-list events where you're dressed to the nines and photographers are ready to strike – it's the perfect place to link arms, share a kiss, and make things "red carpet official".

Here are 11 celeb couples and the first time they hit the red carpet together.

1. Beyonce and Jay Z

They first hit the red carpet together 3 years after they officially got together, arriving at the MTV VMAs together in 2004.

2. Amal and George Clooney

The lovebirds didn't let go of each other's hands at this gala event in 2014, which was the occasion where they were first photographed on the red carpet together just five months after making their relationship known to the world.

3. Liam Hemsworth and Miley Cyrus

They met on the set of The Last Song and started dating in 2010. This pic is from the same year, taken at the Elton John Oscars party where they made things "red carpet official".

4. Victoria and David Beckham

Speaking of which, here are a young Victoria and David Beckham standing with Elton at an event in 1999. It was their first red carpet sighting together, even though it was two years after they began dating.

7. Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis

This pair has always been super secretive, only posing on the red carpet together in December last year despite the fact that they've been together since 2012.
