Whether it was through celebratory Tweets after a major award show win – often when they were competing against each other – or surprise appearances at one another's concerts, Lambert and Shelton always seemed thrilled to see one another succeed. This secured their position as one of country's strongest power couples, making it even more heartbreaking for fans when they announced their divorce in July 2015.

You know that couple who falls in love and then promptly forgets that their friends exist? Yup, that's not relevant here.

Lambert is a well-documented animal lover, and her Instagram features more shots of their furry family than, say, selfies.
