Reality stars with gorgeous husbands

Do you keep your eye out for gorgeous husbands when you stream your favorite reality show? Certainly you can expect at least one nasty cat fight between its female stars, complete with bleeped-out curse words, maybe some hair-pulling, or even wine glass-throwing. But you also can anticipate some major eye candy, as one of the gorgeous husbands bravely intervenes like a knight in shining armor.

While having a gorgeous husband may not be a requirement to become a reality star, it sure seems like that's the case when you look at some of TV's hottest pairings: Don't be Tardy's Kim Zolciak and her football hubby Kroy Bierman, Brie Bella (Total Bellas) and her WWE stud Daniel Bryan, and Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Denise Richards and Aaron Phypers, to name a few. 

No amount of armor can protect reality stars and their hunky husbands from the ugly price of fame, which can lead to infidelity and even divorce. Fortunately, there's hope for many stars who've managed to stay above the fray and enjoy a happy marriage with their gorgeous husbands. Let's take a look at some of them — and their gorgeous husbands.

Reality star Kim Zolciak-Biermann calls her younger husband the love of her life

Kim Zolciak-Biermann knows her man is hot. You can spot plenty of shirtless pics of her gorgeous husband, Kroy Biermann, regularly on her Instagram page. She started dating the then-24-year-old football player when she was 32 and still filming Real Housewives of Atlanta. Zolciak-Biermann told E! News that she didn't want to tell anyone on set about him "because they're going to want to film it."

The couple was successful at hiding their relationship until paparazzi snapped Zolciak-Biermann visiting her beau at a training camp for the Atlanta Falcons. When the story broke, Biermann got spooked by all the attention and broke up with Zolciak-Biermann over text, but they were back together within 24 hours.

Zolciak-Biermann and her husband have come along way since those early days spent hiding from the camera. For almost eight seasons, they've been open and candid about their family life on Bravo's Don't Be Tardy, which documents the couple and their six kids, including two from her previous relationships. Luckily, TV fame hasn't changed the love they feel for one another.

Netflix reality star Lauren Speed-Hamilton fell in love with her man before even seeing him

Lauren Speed-Hamilton and her gorgeous husband Cameron Hamilton met and fell in love in unusual circumstances: on the Netflix hit Love is Blind. They dated, shared their first I love yous, and got engaged before ever seeing each other, proving the theory right — love can be blind. Speed-Hamilton was the first to say "I love you," without having even the slightest clue how gorgeous her man was. "I couldn't believe I said that," Lauren confessed, as she and Hamilton reacted to their favorite scenes on their YouTube channel. "I was feeling it too and I was very pleasantly surprised when you said it," Hamilton responded.

The duo, who got to know one another by communicating through speakers in their individual pods, tied the knot shortly after meeting and are still happily married. Speed-Hamilton took to Instagram to post a photo of the two on their wedding day with a long caption, comparing Hamilton to Prince Charming. "He to me embodied everything I had dreamed of in my fairy tale...Kind, smart, loving, selfless, brave," she wrote in the caption.

Reality star Sadie Robertson Huff says married life is fun

Sadie Robertson Huff of Duck Dynasty and Dancing with the Stars fame is loving married life with her gorgeous husband, Christian Huff. "It's honestly so great to now be married and have a partner doing this with me," she told Entertainment Tonightwhile promoting her new faith-based book Live. "Being a wife is so fun... [you] wake up, go to sleep, do life together, share the stories together." This young couple is giving us all the feels, especially after watching their gorgeous wedding video; it showcases all the nuptial highlights, from the marriage vows to the "first look," during their romantic ceremony at a Louisiana family farm (via People).

Christian is just as gorgeous on the inside as he is on the outside, too. Following their wedding, Sadie shared with fans on Instagram that while honeymooning, Christian noticed the stretch marks his new wife unsuccessfully hid while wearing a bathing suit — and thought they were great. "I'm finding it's pretty cool that the things I was insecure about my husband thinks are the best," she wrote in the caption.

Kandi Burruss and her hubby make time for their marriage

Marriage hasn't always been easy for them, but Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kandi Burruss and her gorgeous husband Todd Tucker — who rocks some serious arm tattoos — have managed to come out on top. This power couple knows how to stay busy: Burruss is a singer-songwriter, actress, and restaurateur, while Tucker owns his own production company. Between them, they have four children, including two of their own, according to Today. But despite their hectic schedules, Burruss and Tucker manage to make time for each other, and vacation in tropical destinations like Jamaica.

While the pair have surely had their highs, like any couple they've had their lows as well, especially when it came to expanding their family. According to People, the two already had a son, Ace, before welcoming a baby girl named Blaze via surrogate. Surrogacy wasn't Burruss' preferred option, but seeing as her pregnancy with Ace was risky, it was the safest way to have another baby. "To allow somebody to carry my child inside of them? It was a tough decision to make," she told US Weekly before the birth of her daughter. Regardless, these two make the most gorgeous babies together!

Trista Sutter loves adventuring with her firefighter husband

If you've religiously watched every Bachelorette season ever, you already know that Trista Sutter has a gorgeous husband. It's been almost 20 years since this adventure-loving duo met on the set of the famous ABC reality show — which starred Trista in the titular role – and somehow firefighter Ryan Sutter looks better than ever. Trista's decision to give Ryan the final rose all those years ago clearly paid off; the couple share two kids live an outdoorsy life in Vail, Colorado, according to Bustle, and Trista still gets to enjoy Ryan's six-pack. It's no wonder Trista has stuck around all these years, though she surely has a hot bod of her own. 

Ryan and Trista are as active and loving as ever, documenting their family hiking trips and swimsuit-clad island getaways on Instagram. In celebration of their 16th anniversary in 2019, Trista posted a throwback photo of the two on their wedding day. She wrote in the caption: "I jumped into this man's arms and our beautiful future together and have never looked back." She also said how thankful she is for the life they've created together.

Denise Richards wed hot husband in shotgun TV wedding

Denise Richards' gorgeous husband, Aaron Phypers, gave women another reason to watch Real Housewives of Beverly Hills when he made his TV debut during season 9 of the Bravo show. And though his occupation is a little difficult to understand, we totally see why Richards loves him. After all, he's buff, has a luscious beard, and wears his hair long like the male lead on the cover of a romance novel. We're sure he's a nice guy too!

Richards, who wed Phypers during a shotgun TV wedding ceremony in California, isn't shy when it comes to talking about her gorgeous hubby. She's even talked openly about the large size of her husband's genitalia on national TV to fellow Housewives co-stars. "My openness definitely bit me in the ass a bit," Richards told The Washington Post of her past remarks on the show. 

However, at the end of the day, Richards says she's never been happier in a relationship than she is with Phypers. "He's my best friend. He's my lover. He's my confidant," she continued. "I feel that we bring out the best in each other."

It was love at first sight for Christina Anstead and her English hubby

HGTV star Christina Anstead is one lucky lady, as English hottie and Wheeler Dealers host Ant Anstead is her gorgeous husband. Of Flip or Flop and Christina on the Coast fame, Christina met her sweetie through a mutual friend and said the connection was instant. "It was love at first sight," she told Extra in a sit-down video interview. "We've been together ever since." 

We don't blame Christina for falling so quickly, either. Ant is extremely handsome, even when he's wearing a casual T-shirt while creating a custom car build on his show. Can't get any hotter than that! He also cleans up well, if his wedding day is any indication. He wore a sharp gray suit during their surprise ceremony at their awe-worthy Newport Beach home in December of 2018. 

Christina met Ant after going through a very public divorce with ex-husband and Flip or Flop co-star Tarek El Moussa, with whom she shares two children. She also became a mother three times over after giving birth to Ant's baby boy, Hudson London. Congratulations, you two! 

Reality star Kyle Richards manages to keep things spicy with her longtime hubby

It's not difficult to keep things spicy when you're married to a stud like Mauricio Umansky, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills (RHOBH) star Kyle Richards' gorgeous husband. Maybe that spiciness is the secret to their long-lasting marriage. "I feel like if you've been married for 20 years in Beverly Hills, it's like being married for a hundred years somewhere else," Richards said on Season 6 of RHOBH. "It's so unheard of, so I'm very proud of that."

On most days, Umansky may be busy running his real estate firm, The Agency, but he still manages to make time for his wife and their four daughters: Portia, Alexia, Sophia, and Farrah, Richards' daughter from a previous marriage, according to Bravo. For example, in late July of 2020, Richards and Umansky escaped to Aspen, according to a post on Umansky's Instagram page. Did we mention Mauricio is shirtless in the photo? 

If you didn't already love Umansky before, just read the caption he wrote along with the sexy snap: "I just love hanging out with my best friend, favorite person, love of my life." Awww!

Nicole Richie says punk rock hubby is a romantic and an old soul

Joel Madden, the gorgeous husband of reality star Nicole Richie, may look like a bad boy with his black clothing and tattoos. But he's actually "very romantic" and "old-fashioned," which Richie revealed in an interview with 60 Minutes. When The Simple Life star first met her beau, who's the lead vocalist of the rock band Good Charlotte, she says she was surprised to discover that he was actually very shy. "I couldn't get a read on him for the life of me," she continued. "He's actually very careful, and an introvert."

Richie also told 60 Minutes that the couple didn't really have a "timeline" on when they wanted to marry and have kids. But Madden knew Richie was the one when he met her, comparing the feeling to a religious experience. "It's a life changing, cathartic event meeting the person you know is going to be your wife," he shared. Just when you didn't think it was possible for Madden to be more gorgeous.

The two dated for over a year before welcoming their daughter Harlow, followed by their son Sparrow, ultimately tying the knot in 2010.

Reality star Lauren Conrad didn't want kids until she met her lawyer husband

Former Hills star and fashion designer Lauren Conrad gained notoriety for shedding a few mascara tears while filming the MTV series, a spinoff of Laguna Beach, which documented a group of young adult friends living in Los Angeles. Though she'd often cry on-camera over boys and friendships, the one guy that's kept a smile on Conrad's face post-Hills is her gorgeous husband William Tell. Conrad met Tell, the former guitarist for the band Something Corporate, on a blind date in 2012. They tied the knot two years later in 2014, during a romantic sunset ceremony at a California winery.

In her early twenties, Conrad wasn't sure she wanted to be a mom. "But after meeting William, I changed my mind," she told People. "I knew I wanted to have a family with him." She wasn't in a rush, though, so the couple waited until they were ready to become parents.

As planned, Conrad gave birth to their son Liam in 2017, and two years later to their second child, Charlie, according to an Instagram post. What a dream come true!

Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi puts her hubby over reality TV fame

Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi has come a long way from her early MTV Jersey Shore days. Nowadays, Polizzi wears casual fashion in lieu of tube dresses as a wife and mother to three young kids: Lorenzo, Giovanna, and Angelo (via People). Polizzi wed her gorgeous husband Jionni LaValle in a romantic, Gatsby-themed wedding in 2014, after meeting him at a club in New Jersey. A wild night of partying led to a one-night stand, Polizzi confessed on Larry King Now. "They always said that's not how you find true love, but that's how we found true love," she shared.

But it wasn't love at first sight. In fact, Polizzi said she hated her future entrepreneur hubby at first, but thought he was cute and would suffice for the evening. But it turned out to be more than a fling, as Polizzi found herself calling LaValle, and the rest was history. 

You won't see much of LaValle on the show's spin-off series, Jersey Shore: Family Vacation, since he doesn't like being on camera, as noted by In Touch. However, Polizzi announced her decision to leave the show in June 2020, saying it comes as her responsibilities grow as a mother and wife. 

Reality star DeAnna "Pappas" Stagliano finds her husband's creativity sexy

You may remember DeAnna "Pappas" Stagliano from Season 4 of The Bachelorette and Season 11 of The Bachelor. But unlike bachelorette Trista Sutter, Stagliano didn't give her gorgeous husband the final rose. In fact, he was never even on the Bachelorette, though his twin brother was

DeAnna finally found her happily ever after with her gorgeous hubby Stephen Stagliano after kissing a few frogs on live TV, including ex-fiance Jesse Csincsak. But the pair never made it down the aisle, which turned out to be for the best. "I'm proud I never settled," she proclaimed in an interview with E! News. "I think I really could have." So what's DeAnna's fave things about her hubby? For starters, she finds his creativity and sense of humor "really sexy," she said.

The parents of two are totally #couplegoals on Instagram, and we don't blame DeAnna for not being able to keep her hands off Stephen. In March 2020, she posted a cute photo of the two sitting on a couch together, including their family dog. She wrote in the caption, "Trying to abide by social distancing but he's just so handsome." We understand, DeAnna!

Brie Bella and her WWE hubby work hard to keep the passion alive

Total Bellas star Brie Bella looks up to her gorgeous husband Daniel Bryan not just as a man, but also as a father to their daughter Birdie and their baby-on-the-way. Few things are hotter than a family man, especially one as ripped as Bryan, and as Bella can attest, he's rockin' it in that department. Brie took to Instagram on May 22, 2020 to wish her hubby a happy birthday, accompanied by the sweetest post of the two kissing over a restaurant table. "He's brighten [sic] my life is soooo many ways and watching him as a Dad is the most beautiful thing to see. Love you SweetFace, all the way to Neptune!!"

Of course, it's not all roses and rainbows for Bella and Bryan. With marriage, kids, and life in general, rough patches can happen to the best of couples. Total Bella fans have watched on E! as Bryan and Bella have hit highs and lows in their marriage — including Bella admitting she didn't want a second child. A lot may have changed since filming, but it seems like these lovebirds are going to be alright.

Reality star Cameran Eubanks trusts her doctor hubby with her life

Someone call 911, because Cameran Eubanks of Southern Charm fame has a gorgeous husband. Eubanks may have wed Jason Wimberly in 2014 on a historic plantation (via Reality Tea), but Southern Charm fans didn't officially meet her anesthesiologist hubby until the Season 6 finale in 2019. Wimberly managed to stay away from the cameras for several seasons, while his wife starred in the reality TV show about Charleston socialites. 

"He's very supportive," Eubanks told Glamour about her gorgeous husband, noting that he was "the one who pushed [her] to do the show." But when she did agree to it, she said she didn't want her love life on national TV, especially since they weren't yet married. "I kept that separate from the show," Eubanks continued, adding that "reality TV is not for everyone," including her husband. 

Though we won't see this couple on any future Southern Charm seasons, since Eubanks announced her departure from the show on Instagram in May 2020, we'll still get to see her gorgeous hubby on her socials, along with their daughter.
