Ian and Mickey's Sweetest Shameless Moments, Because No One Kisses and Makes Up Like They Do

Apologies to the ever-disapproving Terry Milkovich, as well as Fiona and Jimmy/Steve, but we're just going to say what everyone is thinking: Ian Gallagher and Mickey Milkovich are hands-down the cutest couple on Shameless. Since the two finally got their happy ending as cellmates in jail and fans said goodbye to Cameron Monaghan's character, we felt it was only fair to look back at the sweetest moments these two have shared throughout the last nine seasons. Their relationship may have started as volatile, but as time went on, not even the toughest Milkovich could deny their heartwarming connection.

We know their cutest moments include some situations that most couples would hope to never encounter — like helping one escape to Mexico after breaking out of prison — but even through the lowest of lows, they are always there for each other, and that's why we'll always be Team Gallavich. Ahead, find 27 reasons Ian and Mickey are the cutest couple to come out of the South Side of Chicago, and when you're done gushing over them, check out Lip's sexiest moments on Shameless.
