“Me thinking my mom (who died when I was 7) will never get to meet my future boyfriend,” Menzies wrote in the video caption. “Only to find out she was his kindergarten teacher.” 

Then, a clip of Menzies and her boyfriend cut to an old class photo of him and her mom as his kindergarten teacher. 

“Found out through this photo in his photo album. A moment straight out of a movie,” she said in the caption

The video received over 36.2 million views, 9.9 million likes and a whopping 72,000 comments. 

“It’s as if she remembered some significance about him and sent him to you. Love fate,” someone commented

“Literally, like a seven-second video, and I’m crying,” another wrote

“And this is [how] the universe works in mysterious ways,” a person said

“I’m so glad she at least got to see him at one point in time,” a TikToker replied.

“I’m crying! My late husband was a preschool teacher, and I hope this happens for my kids one day,” a user responded
