I checked the Drug Interaction checker and this is what it says about taking both naproxen and Celebrex together:

 

"GENERALLY AVOID: Concomitant use of COX-2 inhibitors with other nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) may increase the potential for serious gastrointestinal toxicity including inflammation, bleeding, ulceration, and perforation. The risk is dependent on both dosage and duration of therapy."
