It has been more than two years since the 90s' heartthrob and model-turned marathoner, Milind Soman had tied the knot with his equally fitness enthusiast ladylove, Ankita Konwar. But even today, their age gap of 26 years grabs the headlines and it reflects the negative side of the society which still judges the couples on caste, religion, gender and age, when it comes to love. No matter how cliché it may sound, age is just a number and madly-in-love couples like Milind and Ankita prove it to be true!

Even though the society wasn't welcoming of Milind Soman and Ankita Konwar's relationship, they had chosen to celebrate it and be together against all the odds. The beauty of their relationship is how they turn deaf to what the society says and live their happily ever after by doing what they feel is right. In December 2019, when Milind had posted a throwback picture of himself from his late 30s, Ankita had asked him to marry her again. Just as we continued to drool, his wife, Ankita had commented on the picture, "Umm shall we get married again?" To which, Milind had replied, "Anyday, anywhere", which was backed by hearts and 'happiness always' emojis.
We love digging up some good old gems from our memory or photo archives and recall the beautiful moments, just to feel better on a long tiring or a bad day. We fondly call it ‘throwback’. And when it comes to celeb throwbacks, then it becomes even more special for their fans. Ankita Konwar took a trip down the memory lane and treated her fans with a priceless gem from her Europe vacation with then-boyfriend and now-husband, Milind Soman. Ankita and Milind had dated for five years before tying the knot in 2018 and sharing a picture which was clicked half-a-decade ago, Ankita wrote, "Half a decade ago, somewhere in Berlin with the forever love #love #togetherness #togetherforever #foreverisinnow." In the picture, Ankita and Milind had sealed their love with a kiss and their loved up moment is a sight to behold!
In an interview with The Telegraph, Milind Soman and Ankita Konwar had revealed many astonishing facts about their relationship and their courtship days. Milind had revealed in the interview that it was the 26-year generation gap that had attracted her towards him. But were Ankita’s parents okay about it? The missus had said, “My mom was a little surprised.” To which, Milind had continued, “Her mother is younger than me.” Ankita had balanced the same by saying, “By two years. She always liked him as a personality, but she was a little worried. ‘Are you sure?’ she asked me.” (Also Read: Paras Chhabra Gets Possessive As Alleged GF, Mahira Sharma Talks About Someone Calling Her Adorable)
Milind Soman and Ankita Konwar had felt an ‘instant’ connection when they had met for the first time. But what was Ankita’s first reaction about Milind? She had stated, “I was with AirAsia at that time. I had just come in from Malaysia because AirAsia was setting up in India at that time. So, I was one of the 16 people to come here and help set up the company. I saw him and thought would go and say ‘hi’ to him, but he was so busy on the phone. At the nightclub, my friend pushed me to go say hi. I don’t like nightclubs and I haven’t been to one after that. I don’t like crowded places. I had that urge. I had to go the club that day.” Milind too, had added, “She had seen me at the hotel before we met at the nightclub. We were staying in the same hotel. We went back to that nightclub last year. It was afternoon and it was shut. We just went to see... Oh this is where we met!"
In July 2018, Milind Soman and Ankita Konwar had exchanged their wedding vows again in a barefoot wedding at Santiago de Compostela, Spain. While the bride had worn an elegant white dress with a matching flower-made tiara, the groom had looked dapper, as always, in a white and black suit complementing his lovely wife. To mark the second anniversary of their barefoot wedding in Spain, Ankita had posted a picture with Milind and had written, "We had our dream barefoot wedding in Spain, on this very day exactly 2 years back! Started our celebrations by running a 10k in the rain this morning. What a beautiful start to a beautiful day. #ultreia my love #togetherforever #foreverisnow #love #runners."
