They’ll soon have a wedding anniversary to celebrate but Tina O’Brien has revealed 29 April will always have a special place in her heart.
It’s the day she had her first date with fiancé Adam Crofts.
The Coronation Street actress shared the sweet story with her Instagram followers as she marked the special occasion.
She wrote beside the sweet snap of the couple looking cosy drinking from plastic cups: “Seven years ago today @adamcrofts and I had our first date at a street party for the #royalwedding.”
The royal wedding she was referring to was, of course, Prince William’s marriage to Kate Middleton on April 29, 2011.
She added: “We’d not even had our first kiss when this pic was taken. So many moments and milestones and memories since this day. Thanks @missheatherlouise for capturing our lil moment in time.”
Her followers were touched by the picture, commenting to tell her it was “cute” and “beautiful”.
“Ah this is so lovely!” one wrote.
“So glad you two are happy together,” said another.
“You both look smitten,” said a third.
A fourth added: “Awww happy 7 years to you & Adam!! Can’t wait until the day yous get married & seeing all the lovely photos of you both & your family!”
Tina, 34, and personal trainer Adam, 33, are set to tie the knot this summer.
They have a son together, Beau, three, while Tina also has daughter, Scarlett, nine, from her relationship with her former soap co-star Ryan Thomas.
Scarlett has previously spoken about how she and Adam met thanks to her daughter matchmaking in a Manchester coffee shop!
She told Fabulous: “He was working on his computer and Scarlett went over and said: ‘Hello, man’,” she recalls. “He told us his name was Adam and we got talking.”
After exchanging numbers, they agreed to meet again to watch the royal wedding on big screens in the city. And the rest is history!
Scarlet’s dad, Ryan, has also moved on with ex TOWIE star Lucy Mecklenburgh.
