Now: Beyonce and Jay-Z are one of the most famous and affluent couples around. On top of managing their insane, multi-dimensional careers, they are also now the proud parents of daughter Blue Ivy, born in Jan. 2012. They've been living in marital bliss these past few years, and here, they're looking stunning at the Feb. 2013 premiere of Bey's HBO documentary, 'Life Is But a Dream.'

Then: Although they've always kept somewhat of a low-profile, rumors began circulating that Bey and Jay-Z were dating after they collaborated on ''03 Bonnie & Clyde,' with even more romance buzz generated after 'Crazy in Love' dropped. Pretty soon, they got tired of hiding, but still managed to keep their April 2008 wedding in New York City a complete secret. Check them out on the set of 'SNL' in 2002 below -- this was probably at the very start of their relationship.
