We are all used to seeing aging male celebrities sharing the limelight with the obligatory pretty young thing as they live up to full the adage "you are as young as the woman you feel". Well what a man can do, a woman can do just as well, and a whole host of A-list female celebrities are out there proving just that, in what some have dubbed the Cougar phenomenon
Madonna(50) and Jesus Luz(22) are the lastest Yummy Mummy Toy Boy (YMTB) combo to hit the headlines. The singer has found comfort in the arms of the young Brazilian model after the acrimonious split from her British film director husband Guy Ritchie. They were said to have first laid eyes on each other while Madonna was doing a photo shoot out in Rio de Janierio.
Demi Moore(46) and Ashton Kutcher(31) are the poster children for the YMTBs. The couple who got married in 2005 after going out for 2 years. They first met when Kutcher was a fresh faced 25 year old actor and the then Ms Moore already an established actress had had two marriages behind her (musician Freddie Moore (1980-84) and actor Bruce Willis (1987-2000)), six years later it is still going strong.
Mariah Carey(39) and Nick Cannon (30). She is the world's best selling solo artist and winner of countless awards and he is a part-time presenter, comedian and rapper, but together they are a sizzling hot YMTB couple. It was a whirlwind romance quickly followed by marriage in 2008 in Bahamas, what a Vision of Love some might say (not us though, cos we don't do cheesey stuff!).
Halle Berry (43) and Gabriel Aubry (33). The twice married American actress must have thought she she had her run after her second marriage to R&B star Eric Benet ended but when she bumped into French-Canadian model Gabriel Aubry on the set of TV movie Their Eyes Were Watching God it was love at first sight. Fast forward three years and they are blessed with a one-year old daughter, Nahla.
Cher (62) and Tim Medvetz (38). While Tim Medvetz was still a twinkle in his parents eyes, Cher had recorded and released her classic I got you Babe, married her first husband Sony Bono and had her fist child Chastity Bono. As they say love conquers all and their relationship is so far still going strong.
