Last year, Milind Soman got hitched to his long-time girlfriend, Ankita Konwar. And before you start counting how many hearts their union broke, wait till you hear their love story.

In a Humans of Bombay post, Ankita opened up about how they got to meet each other and everything that followed.

Nothing but you ❤️

Ankita, who was working as a cabin crew member with an airline, in a tragic turn of events, lost her boyfriend.

A few months later, she happened to meet Milind Soman at a hotel in Chennai.

I kept looking at him & he was staring at me too! My friends urged me to go talk to him. So I asked if he’d like to dance & he obliged! There was a vibe–I could feel it!

Coming back to Ankita and Milind's story, she didn't want to get too involved, as she didn't know where Milind stood. But cupid worked its magic on him. He came looking for Ankita and also went out of his way to get her number.

I thought he’d forget about me. But soon he came looking for me–he had to go so he asked for my number... A few days passed by & I couldn’t get him out of my mind. So I texted him & we met again after a week, for dinner. After that, we’d constantly text and meet.

If this hasn't made you cuss your kismat yet, hold your stars, because it gets more perfect.

Ankita still had concerns getting fully involved with him because of her past. To which (keep tissues ready) Milind said-

‘When I fell in love with you, I fell in love with all of you. Even the part that carries the burden of your past. So don’t be afraid, we’re in this together.’

That's when Ankita knew Milind was the one for him. Her family also saw past the 'age gap' thing when they realised how happy they are with each other.

Ankita also revealed a lesser known fact that these two love-birds actually got married thrice. There was the 'traditional wedding in Alibaug, a white wedding in Spain under a waterfall, and the third, at a place called ‘the end of the world’', which is in remote Russian Siberia.

“I decided to move out of the country & started working with Air Asia, as a cabin crew in Malaysia. It was at that time that my then boyfriend, suddenly passed away. It was heartbreaking–it felt like there was no coming back. A couple of months later, I got posted in Chennai. I was staying in a hotel with my colleagues. Once, in the lobby, I saw a tall, rugged man. It was Milind Soman! I was a big fan! So I went to say hello, but he was busy. A few days later, I saw him again at the hotel’s nightclub. I kept looking at him & he was staring at me too! My friends urged me to go talk to him. So I asked if he’d like to dance & he obliged! There was a vibe–I could feel it! But I didn’t want to get too involved. So I excused myself & I thought he’d forget about me. But soon he came looking for me–he had to go so he asked for my number. It was a new number, so I didn’t remember it & didn’t have my phone on me either. So he made my friend take his number & asked me to message him. A few days passed by & I couldn’t get him out of my mind. So I texted him & we met again after a week, for dinner. After that, we’d constantly text & meet. But I still couldn’t bring myself to get fully involved. Until one day, I told him that because of my past, with my boyfriend, there was a part of me that couldn’t let go. To which he said, ‘When I fell in love with you, I fell in love with all of you. Even the part that carries the burden of your past. So don’t be afraid, we’re in this together.’ That’s when I knew–this was the man for me! We dated for 5 years after that–until we decided to get married! My family & a few others were worried because of the age gap between us. But it wasn’t an issue for us! So when they saw us together & they saw how happy I was around him, they agreed too! Believe it or not, we got married thrice! We had a traditional wedding in Alibaug, a white wedding in Spain under a waterfall & the third, at a place called ‘the end of the world’ there. He’s the best thing that’s happened to me; he taught me to let go, to fall in love, to be happy. And our adventures have only just begun–I can’t wait to live the rest of my life with him.”
