This week, a source told Us Weekly that Taylor Swift calls Calvin Harris by his real name, Adam, in private. This shocked some, but should have come as no surprise to anyone. Celebrities are, as we’re so often told, just like us. And us, or we, like giving people—especially ones we’re in love with—nicknames.
Below is a list of other nicknames celebrities call their partners. How many were you aware of?
Tyga’s favorite movie is Captain Ron, which Kylie has never seen. He says he will call her “Captain Ron” until she finally takes the time to watch it.
This is also Justin’s nickname for Jennifer.
Serena originally called him “Wheelchair,” but after Drake told her it made him uncomfortable, she switched to the less problematic “Degrassi.”
He calls her “FKA MY FIANCEE” when they fight.
This nickname is used primarily in bed.
She thinks this is funny. Kanye does not.
Surprisingly, Jamie began calling her this before knowing Katie’s daughter’s name.
Julianne Hough Calls Brooks Laich **Cough**
Because the newly engaged pair both have last names that sound like someone clearing their throat, Julianne and Brooks simply cough to get each other’s attention. Sources tell Jezebel a recent bout with bronchitis was particularly tough on the couple.
As in “Just Can’t Wait,” as in “Just Can’t Wait To Be King.”
I mean, did you see Magic Mike XXL? My god.
Beyonce Knowles Calls Jay Z “Shawn Carter, Husband and Father of My Child, the Once and Future Goddess of His Eternal and Holy Light, Blue Ivy”
