Pop star Britney Spears, recently engaged to Jason Trawick, may be looking for a new home to replace this mansion that she currently rents.
That means this looming, A-list of impending wedded bliss could signal the start of real estate moves as the stars consolidate, downsize or realign their real estate holdings in preparation for the next stage of their relationships.
In anticipation of that potential, here are some of the homes these lovebirds own and might be sending to the market sometime soon.

For the doe-eyed co-star of “The Devil Wears Prada” and Academy-Award nominee for her role in “Rachel Getting Married,” the proposal came from her longtime boyfriend Adam Shulman over Thanksgiving weekend. The couple has been dating since 2008 and Hathaway now has a chunky emerald-cut ring to show off the engagement.
Hathaway has long called New York home (she previously rented a penthouse), but has more recently been living in a 1,153-square-foot condo, pictured below, in the Sutton Place neighborhood of Manhattan that she purchased for $1.6 million in 2007.
The building is a mix of hotel and condo units with full concierge service, floor-to-ceiling windows and terrace balcony. Hathaway’s condo has 2 bedrooms, but with only a little over 1,100 square feet, Hathaway may be looking for a little more room to roam with her husband-to-be after the wedding.
We recently detailed Britney Spears’ variety of real estate wheelings and dealings, including her most recent rental home in Thousand Oaks. Spears picked up the new home shortly before the announcement of her engagement to her former manager, Jason Trawick.
The home, pictured below, has nearly everything celebrities want in real estate: 10,000-sq ft of living space, high-end features like an infinity pool, private gym, home theater, gourmet outdoor grill area and a pub with billiards table. Given Spears’ real estate track record, we’re betting the pop star could be in the market for a new home after the wedding.
Born and raised in Hollywood, Drew Barrymore comes from a long line of actors, including her grandfather, silver-screen legend John Barrymore. The actress has had two prior marriages, but this time is choosing to marry someone outside of show business: Will Kopelman is a New York native and art consultant.
Although Kopelman is from the East Coast, Barrymore currently owns two homes in the LA area, including one she purchased in 2010 for $6.9 million. The prime piece of Montecito real estate sits on two secluded acres of gardens, citrus and avocado trees and expansive outdoor living areas. Barrymore may be willing to trade all this in, however, for a new swanky penthouse with Kopelman.
