Lisa Wilkinson has shared the sweet story of how she met her husband of nearly three decades, thanks to her matchmaking friend and fellow reporter, Liz Hayes.
The 60-year-old TV presenter posted a cute photo of herself and author husband Peter FitzSimons standing in front of the Channel 9 studio buildings where they first met over 30 years ago.
"Well this is one for the grandkids (which we don't have yet, by the way)...but I digress.," she began her caption.
Wilkinson explained that the pair first met in Channel 9 makeup department when they were both guests on the Today Show back in 1990.
"It wasn't much more than a brief introduction and a handshake –– we were both charmed, but also in separate relationships," she wrote. "Eighteen months later, and both now single, a special someone (thank you @thelizhayes) decided to play matchmaker and nine months after that, we were walking down the aisle."
The couple married in 1992 with a spectacular beach wedding in Sydney, and now share three kids in their 20s: sons Jake and Louis and daughter, Billi.
"Three kids, four changes of address, five animals, the occasional disagreement, and a million good times later, the marriage has survived," Wilkinson wrote.
The reason for sharing this story, she wrote, is because the very same building where they first met is about to be demolished and redeveloped into an apartment building.
"So of course, we raced over today for a selfie out the front of the place that started it all for us. Sweet memories of another time."
The pair are still just as much in love as they were decades ago –– in 2017 they renewed their vows at Balmoral Beach, the same place as their original ceremony.https://www.instagram.com/p/BZ8LE19hnP8/?utm_source=ig_embed
She ended her story with a cute shout-out to the person who took their photo.
"A big thank you to the lovely young film student called Josh who was also there marking the occasion by taking photos (and kindly took ours), and who told us of his big dream of one day making it in the industry. We really hope you do Josh."
