Talk about fate!
Jourdan and Ryan Spencer married in 2007, but were surprised to find out they actually crossed paths as kids 16 years before they met!
A few years ago, the pair were watching Jourdan’s childhood home videos of her family’s July 1988 trip to a Pennsylvania theme park when a little boy on the screen suddenly caught Ryan's eye.
“I was kind of joking around and said, ‘Wow, that looks like me,’” Ryan, 40, confessed in a new interview. “And sure enough, that was me.”

“We rewound and paused. We rewound and paused, and we just couldn’t believe it,” Jourdan, 36, added.
In the clip, Jourdan’s mom and sister are seen waiting for Jourdan, then 10, to return from a water slide. As she approaches the family's meeting spot, a bespectacled 13-year-old Ryan walks into the frame.
“Everyone’s reaction was pretty much they can’t believe it and just in awe of the coincidence,” Ryan said.
After looking at old photographs, the Spencer family confirmed they visited the Sesame Place theme park during the summer of 1988, further proving it is really Ryan who appears in the home video.

“It just matched up with the time, how old I was, the big glasses, the hair. You can just tell it’s me,” Ryan told 'ABC News.'
Jourdan and Ryan grew up 45 minutes away from each other in New Jersey and later met on a blind date in April 2004. The parents-of-three have since taken their children, Sophie, 6, Max, 3, and Mabel, 5 months, back to the Sesame Place theme park on their own family vacation.
