The now-married duo began dating around the early 2010s. After a brief period of dating, they decided to start a family of their own. In May 2013, they welcomed their first son, whose identity isn’t disclosed. As time passed, they continued to stay together and their bond became stronger and stronger.

On January 6, 2017, the duo welcomed another son into the world (name still not disclosed). However, as both of them value privacy very much, they haven’t disclosed their offspring’s details. In addition, whenever Annie shares pictures alongside her sons, she always covers their faces with some stickers or emojis.

But, the couple’s privacy was only for the outer world as they were relishing their time. Years after they began dating, Annie and Thomas finally decided to legalize their bond. On April 21, 2018, they went to the court with their sons and shared the wedding vows in a private ceremony.

However, it wasn’t their “main wedding” as they had it less than a month later, on May 12. On the same day, Annie shared a picture of her kissing her partner with “Did the damn thing” as the photo caption.
