This couple ended up getting married after they were tagged in an old school photo on Facebook

Sometimes, being tagged in a morto old photo is a good thing.

THIS IS ED and Christy Hemmes. They’re a happily married couple in the US now, but the story of how they got together has gone super viral this week.

As People Magazine discovered, their eventual romance was all thanks to an old school photo being fired up on Facebook by a mutual friend who tagged both of them.

They were in the same primary school class back in 1987

And when they were trying to name the other people on it when it was posted in 2009, Ed let slip that he had a little crush on her back in the day

Thinking she wasn’t on the thread, Ed said “Christy Young (loved her)”.

Then, slightly embarrassed by the public declaration of a crush, Ed was quick to apologise:

and BTW am uber sorry/embarressed for proclaiming my love for Christy Young here and now – MY BAD – didn’t know you were on ‘The Read’….

She didn’t really seem to mind, as she responded:

no problem Ed… flattering to have an admirer

And from there, they started messaging, dating and eventually married in 2013. And then their little daughter was born soon after.

And all thanks to an old Facebook photo tag.
