In a photo that popped up on the Internet over the weekend and sent fans right back to the early aughts, Duff smiled as her husband Matthew Koma wrapped his arms around her and Madden beamed as he held his wife Nicole Richie. And hey now, hey now, they're not the only ones in the star-studded snap. Fall Out Boy's Pete Wentz and his girlfriend Meagan Camper were also spotted in the picture as were record producer Josh Abraham and his longtime love Gina Abraham.
The four couples dined at Scratch|Bar & Kitchen in Los Angeles. And by the looks of the photos, they seemed to have a good time. Abraham even posted a picture of himself with Koma, Wentz and Madden and joked, "New band alert."
But let's go back, back to the beginning when Duff and Madden dated almost two decades ago. The actress and the Good Charlotte member were together from 2004 to 2006.
"It was so all encompassing," Duff said while seemingly referencing their romance during a 2016 episode of her Younger costar Nico Tortorella's podcast The Love Bomb. "It was so intense. It was my life. It was, like, every minute of my day."
"Meeting Nicole was definitely—that's like a religious experience, you know? That's like a life-changing, cathartic event, meeting the person you know is going to be your wife," he said during a 2019 interview with 60 Minutes Australia. "And beyond that, she's my best friend."
By 2017, Duff had started dating Koma. And after breaking up and getting back together, they decided to give their relationship another go. "I think we knew we just had to be together," Duff told PeopleTV last May, "because we tried a bunch of times to be apart and it just didn't work out for either one of us."
