There isn't much that we don't know about Lauren Conrad's personal life; the publicity kind of comes with the territory of being a former reality TV star. For instance, we know that a blind date coordinated by mutual friends is what brought LC and her husband, William Tell, former Something Corporate vocalist and guitarist and current lawyer, together. But it turns out, the couple actually met years before that—at one of Tell's band's concerts! 


In a blog post aptly titled, "25 Things You Didn't Know About Me," Conrad revealed, "I met my husband when I was 16 and sitting on stage at one of his concerts. Ten years later we were set up on a blind date."

Their blind date occurred Valentine's Day 2012, which would put their first-ever introduction in 2002, when two years before the Laguna Beach Season 1 premiered and everyone learned Conrad's name. We're not surprised it took a decade to bring them back together, though. They were in different places in their lives (Tell was 22!), and funny enough, now Tell won't even watch The Hills because, as he once told Conrad, "I don't want to know that you!"

After dating for a year, the Paper Crown designer and former rock star got engaged in October 2013 and married in September 2014. In her post, Conrad also wrote that, "My engagement ring is the best gift I've ever received," and "My parents have been married for 33 years." As the newlyweds near two years of marriage, let's hope they last just as long!
