Naomi Watts and Billy Crudup are couple goals - quite literally, if you believe in astrology that is. 

The celebrity couple announced that they had tied the knot on June 10, and have never been happier. What's more, Naomi and Billy have star signs that quite often don't gel together, meaning that they beat the odds big time. 

Naomi was born on September 28, making her a Libra, while Billy was born on July 8, making him a Cancer.

According to Astrotalk, the relationship between a Libra and a Cancer, although "brings satisfaction and fulfilment," is "one of the most challenging relationships within the zodiac signs." 

This is because Libras tend to be more logical and precise by nature, while Cancers are more attuned with their emotions. This means that communication is vital - something Naomi and Billy are no doubt great at.

Naomi and Billy's choice of not revealing their wedding date until after the ceremony came as no surprise, given that the couple are notoriously private. 

They first confirmed their romantic involvement in 2017 while working together on Netflix's captivating psychosexual drama, Gypsy. 

Later, they made their red carpet debut as a couple in 2022 at the SAG Awards, captivating fans and industry insiders alike with their undeniable chemistry. Naomi is a doting mom to children, Sasha, 15, and Kai, 14, with her former partner, Liev Schreiber, with whom she spent 11 years. Billy, meanwhile, has a 19-year-old son named William with his ex, Mary-Louise Parker.
