A couple who shares the exact same name has filed for divorce. Kelly Hildebrandt and Kelly Hildebrandt are no longer together.

NBC 6 reported that the pair made headlines in 2009 when they tied the knot. But sharing the same name was not enough to make their marriage.

“She’s a Florida girl, and I’m a Texas guy,” the male Kelly told Miami news station NBC 6. “We really did come from pretty different worlds.”

Their romance reportedly started on Facebook when the female Kelly tried searching for people with her same name in 2008.

The then-20-year-old reportedly emailed the 24-year-old. Emails became phone calls and the two eventually tied the knot.
