We’ve known for a while that beautiful actress (and spawn of the hilarious Goldie Hawn), Kate Hudson, is pregnant from her rock star boyfriend, [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Matt Bellamy[/lastfm] of [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Muse[/lastfm]. There wasn’t any immediate wedding bells in the future, but all that has changed.

A couple of days ago, Bellamy made it clear that Hudson was indeed his muse and plopped a huge engagement ring on her finger. An actress and a musician–what a magical (and inevitable) combo.

Bellamy and Hudson aren’t the first talented, artistic couple to get hitched or get hooked on each other. In fact, Hudson has a thing for musicians–she used to be married to [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Chris Robinson[/lastfm] from the [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Black Crowes[/lastfm]. Going off her predilection for the musical man, we decided to make a list of the Top Ten Coolest Couples In Rock ‘N Roll.

10. [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Gwyneth Paltrow[/lastfm] and [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Chris Martin[/lastfm] of [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Coldplay[/lastfm]

British crooner, Chris Martin, and A-list actress/country singer/nutritionist/fill-in-the-blank, Gwyneth Paltrow, have been married since 2003 and have two children together–Moses and Apple.

Everything seems to be going swimmingly for the couple–both personally and careerwise–which can’t be hard when your hot hubby is willing to apparently swim across the great dividing pond in pursuit of you:

I swam across/I jumped across for you/Oh, what a thing to do/’cause you were all yellow.

Another British rock musician meets beautiful blonde American girl, Bush’s Gavin Rossdale and No Doubt’s Gwen Stefani have been married since 2002 and have two boys together–Zuma and Kingston.

Although there was a hiccup in their relationship when Stefani found out that Rossdale had an illegitimate child with a model (before their relationship), Stefani has always been a self-acclaimed “traditional” girl and the two now seem to have a super strong relationship.

Not many knew the music of beautiful Filipino singer, Mariqueen Maandig, before she married Trent Reznor, but the former West Indian Girl singer is a talent to be reckoned with and Reznor was more than happy to do the reckoning. Married since October 2009, the couple got the best anniversary present ever–a baby boy in 2010.

Winners of Best New Album at the Grammys this year, couple Win Butler and Regine Chassagne of Arcade Fire have it made. They get to work together, play together, tour together…and win together.

One of the most inspiration couples in alternative rock, Kim Gordon and Thurston Moore have been creating, touring, and parenting since 1984. They’ve dealt with the rise, collapse, and slow rise again of the music industry along with being constant, enduring artists.

Another British musician with a blonde American (noticing a trend here? You should be), Bellamy and Hudson are the couple of the moment. We wish them a long, prosperous, baby-filled, rock-fueled relationship.

Super cool indie musician, Jamie Hince from The Kills, is dating one of the most coveted women in the world–Kate Moss. The hottest supermodel of the ’90s, Moss has been through the ringer publicly and personally, but dating Hince has made her calm down considerably. Probably one of the only instances of rock stars being good influences.

Ben Gibbard from Death Cab From Cutie and actress and singer, Zooey Deschanel, are possibly the cutest indie couple on the face of the planet. It helps that Gibbard wrote the tune “I Will Follow You Into The Dark”–the one indie-folk tune that is probably played at more weddings across the world than any other.

2. [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Linda McCartney[/lastfm] and [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Paul McCartney[/lastfm] of the [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Beatles[/lastfm]

Paul McCartney and Linda McCartney had one of the sweetest, most beautiful relationships to ever grace the front pages of Rolling Stone. Although Linda McCartney is no longer with us, her memory lives on in Paul’s songs like “Maybe I’m Amazed.” Really, try not to tear up listening to the lyrics. It’s impossible.

1. [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Yoko Ono[/lastfm] and [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]John Lennon[/lastfm] of the [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Beatles[/lastfm]

Of course, fellow Beatle, John Lennon, and his quirky, artistic wife, Yoko Ono, are number one on our list. Not only was Lennon considered one of the most talented singer-songwriters of all time, he was married to one of the world’s finest performance artists.

Their relationship was both controversial and typical for the day and their undying love for each other still resonates to this day—more than 30 years after Lennon’s tragic murder.
