This wonderful couple have been together for 53 years! [Pictures]

They still look at each other like they met only five years ago...

53 years married

The couple have been married for five decade and three years - the whole of 53 amazing years!

Their photographer, Olamidipupo Akinpelu tells us that they are simply called Daddy and Mummy Akanni by everyone.

One of their pictures which has now become an Internet sensation after Olamidipupo [olerephotography] shared it on his Instagram page with the following words “You make loving you easy even after 53 years of marrying you… #53yearsmarried #wedding anniversary #blessing."

In the pic, the couple pose intimately, and look into each other's eyes with a smile on their faces. They were both dressed in Yoruba native attires made of matching lace fabric.

Pulse Weddings was able to obtain another lovely photo of the couple whose amazing love story also made it into the two middle pages of their church's magazine. The couple are solid members of Rhema Chapel, Oluyole, Ibadan.

Really these pictures, and more importantly the couple, are just all glowing shades of amazeballs and of course, we have no qualms tagging them marriage goals!!!

More life to Daddy and Mummy Akanni!
