These Preschool ‘Sweethearts’ Reunited Years Later, Fell In Love And Got Married

This is such a sweet story!

Natalie Crowe Tatman and Austin Tatman’s love story began in preschool in Ocala, Florida. Starting at the age of 2, the toddlers were inseparable. Then, when they were 5 years old, Natalie moved out of state, and they didn’t see each other for 12 years. As a teenager, Natalie decided to try to reconnect with her old best friend via social media. Not only did she find him, but after just two dates, they realized they were in love. Now 24, Crow and Tatman married in April 2019.

“We just automatically became best friends and our parents realized it,” Natalie told People of her bond with her now-husband when they were still in diapers. “It’s strange when you’re that age — you don’t usually hang out with the opposite sex. But from when we were 2 until we were 5, we were constantly together.”
