Llia Apostolou sent out a tweet looking for a date to her sister’s nuptials on June 6, 2014. “Are you a man? Can I borrow you for a wedding next week? Bonus points if you can source a baby that I can pretend is mine too,” she hilariously wrote. To which a man named Phil Gibson immediately replied.

The eager response seemed to quickly catch Apostolou’s attention, which incited an ongoing — and flirty — thread. The two went from chatting about the wedding, to discussing meeting Gibson’s grandmother. And while it was all fun and games at the time, it turned out to be quite telling of their true future.

Coincidentally enough, Apostolou did end up discussing her own wedding with Gibson, as he later became her fiancé and now husband. The initial announcement came on Tuesday, via Twitter of course, when Gibson posted a photo of the two after filing their wedding license.
