American celebrity couple Felicity Huffman (of "Desperate Housewives" fame) and her husband William H. Macy will be accorded a rare privilege.

The couple will be one of very few couples to be given adjacent stars on Hollywood's Walk of Fame!

The ceremony, scheduled for 7 March, will see the 2,463rd and 2,464th stars on Hollywood Boulevard go to the pair who has been happily married for 14 years now.

Incidentally, they are the second married couple who will be felicitated with double stars... on the same day. The only other couple to be so honoured was film producers Richard Donner and Lauren Shuler Donner, in 2008.

Meanwhile, a few other couples to be given stars adjacent to each other (in separate ceremonies) include Sherry Lansing and William Friedkin, Tim Robbins and Susan Sarandon, Sonny and Cher, Ozzie and Harriet Nelson and Betty White and Allen Ludden.
