The happily married couple, 43 years old  Bridgette Wilson and  45 years old Pete Sampras, are married for over 17 years now. The love story of the adorable couple starts from a movie theater in L.A. in 1999 where Sampras saw Wilson for the first time.He recalled the moment saying:

“I said to my friend, half-kidding, 'I'd love to meet her,'"

Then his friend apparently contacted her and set a date for them.Wilson on other hand had no idea who Pete was, as she wasn't into tennis. She said:

"I had never watched tennis, so I wasn't familiar with him,"

 Bridgette Wilson added:

"But when I saw his picture, I was like, 'Oh yeah, he's a cutie.'"

Well after nine months of dating, Sampras proposed Wilson with a platinum ring and finally, the couple got married in 2000. Such a classic love story!
