Meet five of the legendary power couples who are making headlines no matter what they're doing around Houston.

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- Here in the Bayou City, we have our fair share of local celebrities. No matter what they're doing around town, chances are good that people are watching.

While George H. W. and Barbara Bush split their time between Houston and their ranch in Maine, they hail from Texas and will always hold a special place in the hearts of Houstonians for their service to our nation.

Houston Texans star J.J. Watt and Houston Dash player Kealia Ohai have been one of Houston's most beloved athlete couples since they revealed their relationship in 2016. Watt shares videos and photos of Ohai on Snapchat pretty much on a daily basis, and she was by his side the night Watt fractured his left tibia.

Tonight at 10, ABC13's Rebecca Spera sits down with Ohai to chat about relationships and her soccer career.

A recent addition to the Houston social scene, Astros pitcher Justin Verlander and his wife, model Kate Upton, add a touch of celebrity to social and sporting events around the area.

George Springer and girlfriend Charlise Castro have been in the Houston spotlight during the Astros' success this season.

And we can't forget about Carlos Correa and his new fiancee Miss Texas USA Daniella Rodriguez. They have made several TV appearances since Correa proposed to Rodriguez after winning the World Series. That huge diamond ring put them on the power list real quick.

No list of Houston power couples would be complete without a nod to Joel and Victoria Osteen, the brains and heart behind nationally recognized Lakewood Church.

Speaking of Lakewood, John Gray and his wife, Aventer, have long been a staple in the local religious scene but only recently rose to prominence after catching the eye of none other than Oprah Winfrey, who developed an OWN series chronicling the couple's work in Houston.

And last but most certainly not least, he may no longer sit behind the anchor desk but legendary ABC13 anchor Dave Ward and wife Laura are still involved in charitable and philanthropic efforts around the city.
