They (meaning Mark Ronson and MERYL STREEP'S DAUGHTER) got engaged and married this past year. Mostly just can't believe Mark Ronson's mother-in-law is Meryl Streep.

They were rumored to be together the entire year and finally appeared on a red carpet together and then also taking a stroll while Paul wore short shorts in November. HOW DID THESE TWO END UP TOGETHER?!?!

Other pics of them were too expensive and not worth buying, but these two have apparently been dating since August. Another coupling I just wouldn't have predicted.

These two went official in January. The most surprising thing about them is that Steve Harvey IS HER DAD. That's all!
