You tell us you don’t swoon a little bit every time Virat Kohli or Anushka Sharma posts an adorable picture of them together on Instagram and we’ll show you a liar. Aside from skincare tips, FOMO-inducing photos from around the world, and gym-spirations, our favourite celebrities often use their Instagram to give their fans and followers a glimpse of their private lives, including unfiltered photos with their partners (often accompanied by adorable captions).
If you’re in the process of soft launching your boo, or want to up your couple-stagram game, here’s a quick guide to how you can do that by some of our favourite celebrity couples…
The ‘blink and you miss’ couple
If you’re someone who likes to maintain an aura of mysteriousness around your private life on Instagram and heavily curate what your followers can see on your feed, then you should look at Alia Bhatt’s Instagram for Inspiration. The Gangubai actress has never shied away from sharing photos of Ranbir Kapoor on Instagram but does it through artfully blurry shots, pictures of the couple holding hands, and candid pictures of the two. It’s all very natural and unfiltered.

The ‘can’t keep my hands to myself’ couple
If your love language is PDA and you are prone to make others feel like they’re third wheeling whenever they’re with you and your partner, then Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas are your twins. You’d be hard-pressed to find a picture of the two together where they’re glued to each other, or indulging in some PDA. If they’re not posing with their hands all over each other or cuddled up in bed, the two are leaving effusive comments on each other’s photos on the ‘gram.

The ‘look at their duality’ couple
Couples who have been in long-term relationships can relate to Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma and their comfort in sharing unfiltered moments with each other on their Instagram. The couple shares a love for the outdoors and regularly share glimpses from their frequent getaways. But what sets this type of couple apart is their ability to flip the switch and remind everyone why they’re the hottest couple around and not get lulled into a false sense of security by their fun and outdoorsy posts.

The ‘kooky and goofy’ couple
When your love language is roasting each other and horsing around whenever you’re together, Shahid Kapoor and Mira Rajput are the couple who most reflect your energy. While the two often share photos of themselves dressed to the nines and looking every inch of the power couple they are, they’re most likely to post silly photos of themselves lounging around in their house or unflattering shots of the other on the feed.
