Woman Stunned After Spotting Herself In Random Photo Of Husband Years Before They Met

Woman Stunned After Spotting Herself In Random Photo Of Husband Years Before They Met

It's fate!

A woman was left in shock after she spotted herself in a photo of her husband, years before they had even met.

Ailiz Melina Zambrano Pinargote, 26, from Ecuador, had been looking through childhood photos when she spotted the picture, taken 15 years ago.

In the background of the snap, a young Ailiz can be seen staring at a random boy. But little did she know that random boy would turn out to be her husband – Pedro Pablo Pico Moreira, 29.

You can watch a video below:

"I don't remember anything about the photo, because I was a girl and I didn't know him, I hadn't seen him, I just remember that every year we went to the city parades with my mom," Ailiz told NeedToKnow.Online.

"One day we went to my mother-in-law's house and I asked her to show me my husband's photo album from when he was a child and that's when we discovered the photo.

"We were totally surprised, we couldn't believe it, it gave us fear, happiness, many emotions because it is incredible that the photographer in the middle of the parade stopped him right at that moment where I appear looking at him."

The couple shared a TikTok of the incredible revelation, and it's gone on to gain more than nine million views and 500,000 likes.

One user said: "They say that before 16 you have already met the love of your life and I think it is real."

"I have read before that before meeting the person destined for you, they coincide in many places, they travel together without knowing each other yet!" Another commented.

And a third said: "I think that to know someone is to see them consciously because it is likely that in this or another life we have already seen them without noticing."

Ailiz continued: "I didn't think that our story would have so much admiration and reception by TikTok users and it would go viral in a few days, we received many likes, congratulatory comments, among others.

"For many this story seems incredible, but it is real, we believe in God and I know that he had already destined us to be together and that photo was one more proof of our love and union as spouses."

The couple properly met when Ailiz was 17.

Ailiz and Pedro met properly when Ailiz was 17 years old. Although Ailiz had spotted Pedro around her local town, she never had the courage to speak to him.

But fate brought them together properly when Ailiz saw Pedro sitting outside her university.

"I was about to enter my classroom when it turned out that Pedro was sat on a bench outside the classroom," she said.

"I saw him and he looked at me (he had never seen me before), at that moment I smiled and I was very embarrassed because I'm not flirty and that was the first time something like this had happened.

"I carried on and entered my classroom… (he says that with that smile it confirmed that I liked him) and after three days he wrote to me on Facebook."

They are now married.

After spending two weeks talking and calling each other, Pedro asked Ailiz to marry him. The couple were engaged for around six years before they tied the knot in a civil marriage ceremony.

The couple have now been married for a year and 10 months – but believe they've known each other for 15 years!
