Behind every successful man is a good woman. At least that’s one variation of the saying. And…. depending on the couple it’s true, particularly in the case of the new odd, but hot celebrity couple – Blac Chyna & Rob Kardashian.

The two have been shamelessly displaying their affection for one another and you can visibly see Rob doing much better. He’s slimming down, making jokes, stepping out in public and smiling (gasps!). It’s one of those situations where you can’t help but realize that the woman in his life played a major role in his reinvigorated energy.

Even his mom, Kris Jenner had to admit that her son is “very very happy”. So, regardless of anyone’s opinion of her, she’s definitely stroking him in the right direction.

But, this isn’t new. There are many cases where women have made a man’s life better. Sometimes the man already has success, but is “missing something” until she comes along. Here are some women who’ve visibly added meaning and spice to their guy’s life.

President Obama and Michelle Obama – After he won reelection in 2012, President Obama confessed that he wouldn’t be the man he is today without his wife.

Beyoncé and Jay Z – Jay-Z was already successful in his career, but many people argue that it wasn’t until he began dating Beyonce’ that he really gained crossover appeal. Bey would never boast about it because she respects and supports him just that much.

Celine Dione  and René Angélil – The two met when she was only 12 and he was 38. When she sang for him for the first time, he cried. Soon, he began managing her career, but when she turned 19, he fell in love with her. Throughout their 21-year marriage, they faced many difficulties (especially around her fertility and his health), but he truly wanted to be married to her forever.

Ice T. and Coco Austin – The gangsta rapper turned actor vehemently expresses his love for his wife, Coco. The two have been together for nearly 15 years and now that they have a new baby girl, Ice T’s joy has gone from 10 to a million!

Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson – Tom Hanks has admitted that his marriage has been filled with love and ease.

Hugh Jackman and Deborra-Lee Furness – Hugh Jackman has professed that his wife is the greatest woman he’s ever met.
