Canada's "first family" gets lots of attention from Canadians and even from people around the world. This is especially true when it comes to the Prime Minister's relationship with his wife. People are curious about the couple and wonder how did Justin Trudeau meet Sophie Gregoire

It's actually a really cute story. The pair knew each other as children because Grégoire was classmates with Trudeau's youngest brother Michael. She even has memories of hanging out at the Trudeau family home when she was a kid. 

But it wasn't until they were both adults that the two became truly acquainted. While co-hosting a fundraiser together in 2003 they were reintroduced to each other and hit it off. Funnily enough, Trudeau "left her on read" a few days later when Grégoire emailed him to say she enjoyed meeting him. 

At the end of the summer that same year the pair bumped into each other on the street and Grégorie was poised to ignore him but Trudeau asked her out to which she said if he really wanted to go out with her he would email her back. 

On their first date, Trudeau even told her that he wanted to spend the rest of his life with her. And if that isn't funny enough, Trudeau said that after his declaration "we both burst into tears because we’re both such big sensitive souls."

Obviously their story doesn't end there. 

A little more than a year after their first date Trudeau proposed to Grégoire and the couple tied the knot on May 28, 2005. 

They also have three children together.

The pair recently celebrated 14 years of marriage with touching Instagram posts to each other in which Grégoire called Trudeau her "favourite hubby" and Trudeau said "here’s to 14 more years of love & adventure, together."

Hopefully there's plenty more than just 14 more years together for these two.
