Couple Who Are On The Verge Of Marriage, Were Incidentally Born On Same Day In Same Hospital
Destiny can be interesting at times. This is one such interesting story that will give the couple something to talk about when they meet people.
Shauna Gracey and Tom Maguire were both born on 22 December 1992, in the same hospital. However, what makes this interesting is that the two are now getting married.
The two lived nearby but never came across each other until they were out celebrating their 18th birthday On Boxing Day in 2010. While Tom was dressed as a Ninja, Shauna was Minnie Mouse.
After they were introduced to one another by a mutual friend, Tom says he was instantly smitten. But sadly the feeling wasn’t mutual, and despite his attempts to chat her up over social media, Shauna wasn’t interested – so much so that at one point she even told Tom: “Leave me alone.”
But nobody can go against the destiny. And a few months later, the pair ran into each other again. This time there was an improvement as they had a drunken smooch. Shauna still had doubts and took a few months to make the man happy.
Shauna said: “From the get-go Tom was so keen. He was adamant we were going to be together and would tell me he loved me.
“I told him that we were just friends and that we would never end up together, I just wasn’t interested.
“But one night we were out and I just looked over and saw him and thought, ‘Oh my God, I really like him.’
“We’ve been together eight years now and I couldn’t be happier, he really is one in a million.
“Now more than ever I feel like it was fate that we met.”
She added: “I think it’s so nice that we were born on the same day in the same place.
“I love telling people and seeing their reactions.”
Shauna says as they got to know each other, they eventually figured they had been born at the same hospital – the now-closed Billinge Hospital – on the same day.
“The story of how we met is definitely weird,” Tom said.
“I think all the funny coincidences make the relationship that extra bit special, definitely.
“People we speak to about it love to hear the story.”
Let’s wish the couple a very happy married life and congratulate Tom for not giving up on his lady love.
