The happiest birthday.
This is Yolanda Etheridge and Kerry Wilson, a South Carolina couple that turned 42 together on Tuesday — and commemorated it with the cutest birthday photo shoot.
It was their first birthday together, so the two decided to really go all out, Etheridge told BuzzFeed News.
The couple met on a dating app almost a year ago, and “just automatically clicked.”
It was on that first date that the two discovered the share a birthday, Etheridge said.
“While we were eating, I don’t know how it came up, but he was like, 'When’s your birthday?' So I told him, and he was like, ‘No way, that’s my birthday!’” Etheridge said.
Etheridge didn't believe Wilson at first, and even checked his drivers' license to make sure.
“Not only was it the same day, but the same year. We were the exact same age,” she said. “It was really crazy.”
The two talked every day after that and quickly became “inseparable.”
To commemorate their first birthday together as a couple, Etheridge wanted to go all out. She came up with the idea of a photo shoot, complete with matching t-shirts — but her daughter wasn’t a fan.
“She said, 'Mom, that’s so corny! Really? Matching t-shirts?'”
But her mind was changed once she saw how the shoot came out, Etheridge said.
“When I emailed her the pictures, she said, 'Oh my god, I’m so glad you didn’t listen to me!”
