Lubbock Kelly Hildebrandt and Florida Kelly Hildebrandt – A Facebook Love Story
Back in 2008, 20-year-old Kelly Hildebrandt of Coral Springs, Florida typed her name into Facebook to see if anyone else had the same name. She found a 24-year-old guy right here in Lubbock who was ALSO named Kelly Hildebrandt.
They became Facebook friends, and then they started messaging. That turned into phone calls, and that turned into visits. Less than a year later, male Kelly Hildebrandt proposed to female Kelly Hildebrandt. They were married in 2009.
Unfortunately, it turns out that having the exact same name as someone just might NOT be enough of a foundation for a lifetime together.
I'm sad to report that Kelly Hildebrandt and Kelly Hildebrandt have decided to get divorced after three years of marriage. They're citing irreconcilable differences.
Male Kelly says, "She's a Florida girl and I'm a Texas guy. We really did come from different worlds. We gave it our best shot." (Male Kelly seems to have a great attitude about this whole thing.)
And it appears female Kelly has deleted her Facebook profile.
Here's the male Kelly's Facebook page and a photo of the couple:
