A newly engaged couple were looking through old family photos, when the groom-to-be spotted himself in the background of a childhood photo of his new fiancée. How weird is that?

Now, I don't believe in fate (and I'm sort of judging you if you do) but this is a strange coincidence, isn't it?

Verona Koliqi, from Kosovo, was going through some old photographs with her fiancé Mirand Buzaku, when they came cross one from over ten years ago of her and her family on a beach in Montenegro. Looking very adorable.

However, her other-half had his eye caught by the kid on the inflatable in the background. He told her that he had the same outfit and lilo as him when he was a kid.

Neither of the pair could believe it was him, because, what are the odds of that? The same beach in the same country at the exact same time as the photo was being taken? It's too much.

Anyway, the couple did a bit of digging and asked a few relatives and it turned out that the little fella in the background was none other than Mirand.

Or, as Verona puts it: "We analysed further and confirmed with family members that it's him photobombing my family photo."

Despite being in the same place at the same time, they never met as children and would have to wait until summer 2016 before they were introduced.

A year later, Mirand popped the question and after sharing the cute photo and story people are convinced they're 'meant to be'.

Since sharing the post it's been shared over 30,000 times and had hundreds of comments. Anyone else wondering if their love of their life is somehow lurking in the background of old family photos now, or just me?
