A couple with the same name who met on Facebook have confirmed that they will marry this autumn.

Female Kelly Hildebrandt, 20, met 24-year-old male Kelly Hildebrandt on the social networking site and sent him a message about them sharing the same name.

After a string of emails, the duo eventually met up and developed a relationship. They have now revealed that they are engaged and will tie the knot in Miami, Florida later this year.

‘He is just everything that I’ve ever looked for,’ said female Kelly. Meanwhile, her partner joked that there were initial concerns that they could be long-lost relatives.

‘I thought she was pretty cute,’ he said. ‘I thought, man, we’ve got to be related or something.’

On the subject of starting a family, female Kelly said: ‘We’re not going to name our kids Kelly!’
