French superstar Vanessa Paradis knew her relationship with Hollywood hunk Johnny Depp would be a success - because she loved him even before she met him.

The pair have been living together since the late nineties, and now have two children together - and Paradis always knew the Pirates Of The Caribbean: THE CURSE OF THE BLACK PEARL star was the man for her.

She says, "It would be silly to tell you how smart and funny and brilliant and special and beautiful he is. I mean, it is all this, but it is beyond that.

"He is just the one. Before I even met him, I knew. I had been in love with him for quite a while."
