This Story About How Sunny Leone Met Her Husband Will Make You Believe in Love Again
"He supports every dream of mine like it’s his own."
True love is rare to come by — and we don't mean the movie kind of love, where there are grand, dramatic gestures of love. We mean the more real kind of love that stands beside you through thick and thin. One of the few, lucky people who seem to have this real love is none other than actor Sunny Leone. Leone met her husband through friends, and although it wasn't a perfect start, it turned out to be the forever kind of love.
In an interview with Humans of Bombay, Sunny told the heartwarming story of how she and her husband, Daniel Weber, met and built a life together:
"We met through Daniel’s band mate at a club in Vegas. He says it was love at 1st sight, not for me though, because all we did was make small talk–there weren’t any floating hearts or violins. But somehow he got my number & email ID.
What I liked is that he didn’t call me, but emailed me instead–that’s how we began talking. Coincidentally, I was going to NY, where he lived when he emailed me saying, ‘You’re never going to give me your number, are you?’ Which is when I gave in & he asked me out.
I was late for our 1st date. But like a gentleman, he waited patiently. When I reached & we started talking–there was the violin moment. The whole restaurant disappeared & it was just us. We spoke for 3 hours–it was like I’d known him forever.
We had a long courtship–in the beginning, it was just us getting to know each other. I remember when I was in Oman–he sent me a mixed CD & flowers from across the world! I had a stack of calling cards because of how much we spoke! I was in love.
He’s so considerate & supportive. In fact, because he wasn’t comfortable with me working with other men in my adult films, he began working with me & we started our own company.
Within a few months of dating, my mom passed away. I’d expect a guy to run from such an emotional responsibility–but he stayed. Not only for me, but for my family. I’d wake up crying at night & he’d hold me. He didn’t try to fix the situation–he was present & that’s what mattered. I knew then that he was the one, but it was his turn to make me wait.
I remember it like it was yesterday. I was looking for a box to put my ring in. When randomly, he gave me this beautiful mahogany box which he’d made. It said, ‘With love, Daniel.’ I was so excited with the box, when he said, ‘I also have another ring for you!’
YES!! I was jumping–how could I not? I’m so lucky to have him. The proposal was simple–exactly how I wanted it.
It’s been 7 years now & we’re just the same. He supports every dream of mine like it’s his own–he makes me believe that anything is possible. And when we’re all together–the kids, me & Danny making us breakfast...life itself is a dream, one I can’t believe I’m living.”
Now, if that doesn't make you believe in true love, we don't know what will!
