I'm a person that loves love but for me personally, there's something about Black love that just hit different and if you feel like I do, Tamia and Grant Hill's latest anniversary video is probably the best thing you'll see all day.
Celebrating their 21st wedding anniversary, the couple posted a video dancing to Tamia's "Can't Get Enough of You", and if my husband isn't down to hit a mean two-step with me like she and Grant did, I don't want him.
After more than 21 years, two children, and a scary multiple sclerosis diagnosis, Tamia and Grant Hill are living proof that Black love is alive and well in these streets and we love to see it. In a previous interview on OWN's Black Love, the former ballplayer revealed that the moment he knew Tamia was the one was when he ate her French toast:
"One day, in the morning, she made this bomb French toast. And I was like, 'I could marry her.' I mean, she's strong, she's beautiful, she's a fighter, we're compatible, and she can cook? And so, I knew I could marry her."
The couple has had their fair share of challenges—including when Grant sustained a serious ankle injury and Tamia was diagnosed with MS—but they have managed to have each other's back despite it all. In a previous interview with ESSENCE, Tamia explained:
"Every day you are just saying to each other, 'we are going to work it out, we are going get through it together,' [because] it's not about looking into each other's eyes, it's about looking in the same direction. So, there's no secret."
Along with Denzel and Paula and Boris and Nicole, Tamia and Grant are definitely one of my favorite couples and after seeing these 21 images of this duo over the years, you'll fall in love with their throwback love story, too:
