The before and after picture Wendy Joseph and Dan Hennessey posted on their 10th anniversary garnered so much attention and went viral.
The couple became puzzled as to why this particular picture caught more attention than usual.
After deciding to go through the comments under the post, it all began to make sense to them.
The Couple Could Not Understand Why Their Photo Went Viral
Even though Dan Hennessey and Wendy Joseph had become quite well-known thanks to their dominating presence on Instagram and were used to getting a lot of attention from their photos, their anniversary photo was different. It gathered way more attention than ever.
To get to the bottom of this, the couple decided to read the comments under the post. It became clear why this picture was so unique.
Dan Met Wendy On Facebook A Decade Ago
Dan and Wendy are famous YouTubers, and their beautiful love story started when Dan sent a friend request on Facebook to Wendy some years back. Then, 18-year-old Dan was in college studying Exercise Science, while 17-year-old Wendy was still in high school and wanted to pursue a career in public healthcare.
Dan found Wendy stunning and instantly sent her a friend request. He even messaged her hoping that she would reply.
However, Wendy ignored the request.
She decided to consult with her friend Daphne about Dan and showed Daphne his profile.
Daphne had a few things to share. She told Wendy that Dan had messaged her as well.
Thinking Dan was a player, Wendy decided not to return his message.
Undeterred, Dan sent her another message which made Wendy curious, so she decided to reply to him this time.
Dan and Wendy started to converse back and forth and became fast friends. Wanting to meet her in person, Dan invited Wendy to a party at his apartment.
The pair, however, thought it best to stay friends since Wendy had just gotten out of a toxic relationship and Dan was still enjoying single life at college.
They Began Dating Later, But Wendy Broke Things Off
After some time, the couple decided to give a relationship a try, but Wendy had worries and decided to break things off. She wanted to discover who she was without Dan.
It was a hard decision, but Dan agreed it was the right one to make. However, their connection did not end there.
Wendy Opened A YouTube Channel
While apart, Wendy started her own YouTube channel about hair and beauty tutorials. She saved enough from her YouTube earnings to go back to college and finish her studies.
Wendy Decided To Rekindle Their Romance
With a Master's Degree in Public Administration at just 25, Wendy was ready for some romance in her life. She contacted Dan, who was still in her heart.
Dan also had not forgotten her, and the pair decided to get back together.
Wendy Shared Before And After Photo
A few days after their 10th anniversary, Wendy decided to post a before and after photo of her and Dan together.
The caption read;
"I used to wear my hair stuck to my face every day, and Dan used to shave every week! Now we just take serious swimsuit pictures in different countries."
The picture exploded, and people were fascinated by how the couple appeared much younger now than before. It looked like they aged in reverse.
"Do you both age in reverse?" asked one commenter.
People wanted to know the couple's secret to their youthful appearance.
The Glow Up Is Real
Of course, nothing comes free. The couple revealed how much effort they put into maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
They are both fitness enthusiasts. They even founded their own fitness coaching company True4You Fitness where they give clients workout and nutrition advice to stay healthy and happy as they are.
