A woman revealed how she saw herself in the background of one of her husband’s childhood photos years before they met.
Recently posted on TikTok, which has been translated from Spanish to English via Google Translate, Ailiz, @ailizmelinazambrano, shared an image of her husband, Pedro, captured in 2005 showing him in a parade as a child.
She then shared another photo of him that unintentionally showed her in the background as a child. She happens to look at Pedro without realizing it.
Ailiz then commented on how crazy it was to find the image, as her younger self was totally oblivious to the fact that she would marry Pedro 15 years later.
As of August 5, the video has been viewed more than 9 million times, with TikTok users applauding the couple’s relationship in the comments. The comments were also translated from Spanish to English via Google Translate.
“Destiny had prepared something very beautiful for both of them,” wrote one person.
“I’ve read that before they meet the person meant for you, they coincide in many places, they travel together without knowing each other!” said another.
A third person wrote: “What a pleasant reminder of what fate is like.”
During an interview with NeedToKnow.OnlineAiliz confessed that she remembers “nothing about the photo”.
“I Was A Girl And I Didn’t Know” [Pedro]”I hadn’t seen him, I just remember that every year we went to the city parades with my mother,” she said.
She went on to say how emotional it was when she and Pedro discovered her in the photo, which she found while flipping through one of his childhood photo albums.
“We were totally surprised, we couldn’t believe it, it gave us fear, happiness, a lot of emotions, because it’s unbelievable that the photographer in the middle of the parade stopped him just as I appear [to be] watching him,” she explained.
While they were first seen together as young children, Ailiz said she didn’t meet Pedro until she was 17 years old. She introduced herself to him and confessed how “embarrassed” she felt approaching him for the first time.
“I was about to enter my class when it turned out that Pedro… [sitting] on a bench outside the classroom,” she continued. “I saw him and he looked at me (he’d never seen me before), at that moment I smiled and was embarrassed because I’m not flirty and that was the first time something like this happened.”
After talking for two weeks, Pedro proposed to her. However, the couple spent six years dating until they officially tied the knot. They have been married for almost two years now and have known each other for 15 years.
