Tabitha Brown and her husband Chance have been going strong for 17 years and are proof that when you’re happy in your marriage, time seems to almost come to a standstill.
The 41-year-old vegan social media influencer and her entrepreneur hubby took a break from their weekly “Fridays with Tab & Chance” IGTV series to share a fly throwback image with their followers.
In the five-year-old photo, the lovebirds are hugged up and all smiles. Tab’s printed leggings, fringe boots and tank were upstaged by her drastically different ‘do. The actress’ now-signature curly ‘fro, which she lovingly refers to as Donna, is straightened and dyed in the pic — a stark contrast to her dark brown color that fans are used to seeing.
“Fridays with Tab&Chance will be back next Friday, so I’m gonna leave y’all with a little throwback from a about 5 years ago!” Brown captioned the post. “The more things change, the more they stay the same❤️. Love you babe @teamchancebasketball #tabandchance #22years”
The “first encounter” for Tabitha and Chance was in fifth grade when the two had an altercation at a recreation center. They began dating in eighth grade, broke up in ninth grade, got back together in college, got married at 24, and have been together ever since.
Between the couple’s radiant love, apparent agelessness and Tabitha’s throwback appearance, fans couldn’t get enough of the photo.
“Oh they are definitely washing with that soap from 17 again”
“Look at Donna showing out 😂😂 all laid back”
“Wow 😍. You two look like teenagers in love! 🖤”
“Look at Donna get into her😍💙”
“5 years ago?! Not aging at all!!”
A few fans also admitted that they had to do a double take because of the resemblance to her daughter, Choyce.
“I thought that was Choyce 😂”
“Lord I thought that was Choyce 😂😂😂 too cute”
“You and your daughter are twins. I thought that was her”
In addition to being social media darlings, the Browns also are parents to two children, 18-year-old daughter, Choyce, and eight-year-old son, Queston (aka Quest). Chance is father to an older daughter, 24-year-old Ty-Leah Hampton, from a previous relationship.
