Valentine's Day 2021: How celebrities are marking the most romantic day of the year

Hollywood and Bollywood stars have posted loved-up messages and tributes to their significant others

It's Valentine's Day, which means couples are taking to social media to show just how loved-up they are. However, when it comes to gushing, celebrities are in a league of their own; a red balloon-filled, teddy bear-stuffed, heart-shaped candy-packed, over zealous gesture-jammed one.

Here, we take a look at the way A-list celebrities are celebrating the most romantic day of the year:

John Legend and Chrissy Teigen 

It's no secret that the singer and model are an in-tune couple. After all, Legend is behind some of the most romantic songs of the last 15 years, most of which are written about his wife of seven years.

Although it was not an insight into their Valentine's Day plans, the couple both appeared on Instagram, where the singer posted a pre-Valentine's Day concert for fans from the comfort of their home. Extra points for the heart-shaped decorations in the background and top-to-toe red apparel.

Kareena Kapoor Khan and Saif Ali Khan

Kareena Kapoor Khan gave us a cute insight into her relationship with husband of eight years, Saif Ali Khan.

"I have loved you despite this moustache ... my forever Valentine," she wrote on Instagram.

Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli

New parents Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli also celebrated their love on Instagram. The Bollywood actress posted of her cricketer husband: "Not too big on this day in particular but today seemed like the quintessential day for posting posed sunset photos ... My valentine every day forever and beyond."

The couple welcomed their baby girl Vamika Kohli in January.

Kamala Harris and Doug Emhoff

US Vice President Kamala Harris and the second gentleman, Doug Emhoff spent the day before Valentine's Day handing out coffee and heart-shaped cookies to health care workers at the VA Medical Centre in Washington.

Each cookie was individually wrapped with a note that read: "Have a sweet Valentine's Day! We appreciate you. Kamala & Doug."

Ahead of Valentine's Day, Kari McDonough and her husband Secretary of Veterans Affairs Denis McDonough, joined U.S. Vice President Kamala Harris and Second Gentleman Doug Emhoff to deliver coffee and cookies to essential health care workers thanking them for their service, at the VA Medical Center in Washington, DC, U.S., February 13, 2021.

"Thanks to my amazing husband who spent 5 out of the 6 weeks with me in Glasgow ... It was amazing coming back to him after shoot everyday ... It would have been so much easier for him to work from home in London, but he was here with me as the most supportive, encouraging and generous partner," she wrote. "I appreciate you and I’ll never take you for granted ... love you."

Shilpa Shetty and Raj Kundra

Actress Shilpa Shetty celebrated her businessman husband Raj Kundra with a montage video on Instagram.

"Wow, you did that for me?" she asks in the clip. "I did that for you," he replies.

She responds: "Well I don't even know what to say."
