LeAnn Rimes met her husband when she was 14 and didn’t realize it

Now that's a #ThrowbackThursday photo - Instagram
LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian met way, way back – Instagram

This is pretty dang cute.

As far as LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian knew, they met while shooting the Lifetime movie, Northern Lights, back in 2008ish. Turns out, however, that the couple actually met in 1996/97ish and didn’t realize it until Eddie dug up an old photo recently.

LeAnn took to Instagram to share the fun story.

I was 14, he was 23. We don’t remember meeting. He found this in the garage while going through boxes. 14 years later who knew we’d meet again. Crazy, all the life that happened between those two encounters, the lessons that needed to be learned. Fate? Chance? Serendipity? Who knows ? All we do know is, here we are together and tomorrow we are celebrating 5 years of being married and we wouldn’t want to be anywhere else.

The picture couldn’t have had better timing as the couple celebrated their 5th wedding anniversary last week. Talk about an unexpected and sweet gift.
