Married couple find out they actually met as kids

Olivia Morris

Many couples assume the first time they meet is actually the first time they meet.

However, that wasn't the case for Grace Jennings-Edquist and Ben Cerini.

The married couple, who are now based in London, thought they met at 23 but after Grace made a bizarre discovery of an old childhood photo she soon realised they had actually met many, many years before.

At the end of last year she took to Twitter to share her unique discovery of herself "eyeing off" a boy in an old picture.

Turns out that boy was her future husband.

"Thought I’d met my husband at 23...but I just found this pic showing us both at the same party," she wrote. "That’s me, in a white dress, eyeing him off."

The couple, both 29, were both extremely confused at their unusual discovery and couldn't quite believe it.

“[We] went back and forth a little bit trying to work out how that photo could have been taken, since Ben lived in Adelaide for a bit when he was young,” Grace told 9Honey.

It turns out their first meeting was all down to a family friend of Grace's who lived on the same street as Ben's family.

“I had known that this family friend once lived on the same street as Ben’s family when they were young, but we were totally unaware we’d actually crossed paths ourselves,” she told the publication.

The couple thought they first met while they were both studying in The Netherlands when they were 23 and went on to marry in 2015.

It must've been fate.
