LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian are preparing to celebrate their seventh wedding anniversary, but that doesn’t mean they remember how they met.
In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, the 36-year-old discussed her (almost) seven-year marriage with the Take Two star, 45. Although the couple thought they met on the set of 2009’s Northern Lights, Rimes revealed that an old photo confirms they crossed paths at a fan appreciation event in the ’90s.
“Well, we don’t remember meeting each other,” she said. “No, but there is a photo of it, clearly, and it is odd. We both were like, ‘Wait, what?’”
Rimes went on to explain the timeline, adding, “I think he was 23, I was 14 at the time, and he was doing Young and the Restless. He found that right after we had worked together. He was just digging through some photos in his garage and found it.”
The couple started dating in 2010 after Cibrian split with The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Brandi Glanville. Rimes and Cibrian tied the knot one year later on Christmas Eve.
Thanks for the clarification, LeAnn.
