Real Couple: LaToya & John

Meet this Georgia couple who love to laugh together.

Location: Hampton, GA

Their Digs: They own a 2,200-sq.-ft. house with 5 bedrooms and 3 baths.

Ages: They’re both 28.

Together Since: 2005

Relationship Status: Married since July 2010

How You Met: They first met in 2000 through a mutual friend but didn’t start dating until 2005.

Careers: LaToya works as an educator for the Atlanta Public Schools system, and John works as a lead foreman at PepsiCo.

Baby Clock: “John has a 10-year-old from a previous relationship,” says LaToya. “We plan on giving it a year or so before trying to have a baby together.”

Downtime: LaToya likes to shop, while John “watches movies that I fall asleep to,” says LaToya. They both love to go to comedy shows together and occasionally watch sports (they root for the Falcons, Hawks and the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets).

Fun Fact: They got married in Negril, Jamaica, at a gazebo overlooking the beach. “Soon after we said ‘I do,’ it started to rain and the party of 20 had to be rushed to the beach hut for the reception!” says LaToya.

In 10 years: “We plan on having a bigger family, working just as hard and having even more fun together!”
