A loved-up couple have revealed how they got engaged just five days after meeting – and now share a one-year-old daughter.
Jenny Koos, 36, and Lovemark Boadu, 44, from Malmö, Sweden, met at a party in July 9, 2021, after their mutual DJ friend set them up.
The pair, who say they were instantly ‘drawn’ to each other, got to talking at the party – and by the end of the night, they were already discussing having a child together.
Five days after the party, the pair, who each have children from previous marriages, found some rings in Jenny’s draw and decided to get engaged.
And a week after that, they began trying for a baby – welcoming their daughter into the world in June 2022 following two miscarriages.
Jenny Koos, 36, and Lovemark Boadu, 44, from Malmö, Sweden, got engaged just five days after meeting each other
Jenny, a fertility awareness educator, said: ‘His face was the first face I saw. I was just drawn to him.
‘We were talking, and then we were dancing and then nothing else existed. We put together our children and made this a family within weeks of meeting.’
Lovemark, a teacher, said: ‘I felt the same way she felt. It was a deeper connection at first sight. I knew this is the one.’
The pair, who were set up by a mutual friend, said they were ‘drawn’ to each other and knew they were each other’s person by the end of the night
The couple started trying for a baby after just two weeks of dating, and after two miscarriages, they became pregnant in September 2021
Both Jenny and Lovemark had been divorced and had four children between them from their previous relationships – aged six, nine, 10 and 13.
At the time of meeting, they had both been working on ‘personal growth’ and knew they didn’t want to get into anything ‘messy’. But when they saw each other for the first time, they knew it was something special.
Jenny said: ‘Our friend told me to come to this party he was DJing at.
‘He told Lovemark ‘Jenny is going to be there, and you guys are going to vibe’.
‘He both knew we would like each other, but I don’t think he knew how much we would click.
‘He probably didn’t expect the call the next day saying ‘oh, we’re going to get married’.’
Recalling the first night of meeting, the couple talked about ‘everything’ about their lives, from their past relationships to their financial situations.
Jenny said: ‘After we had all those important conversations, I just told him ‘I’m just going to give you a child’ and he said ‘yes, you will’. This is for life. That was it.’
Within two weeks, each had met members of the other’s family.
Jenny said: ‘In my mind we got engaged the first night because we said ‘this is it’.
‘We found a couple of rings in a drawer after five days – that were my grandmother’s old rings – so we put them on.’

They started trying to conceive a baby after two weeks of dating and, following two early miscarriages, they found out they were expecting in September 2021.
However, at the 20-week scan they suffered a scare when they were told the baby had heterotaxy syndrome – a rare condition where organs in the chest and abdomen have abnormalities or are in different positions.
Although it was a terrifying time for the couple, Jenny and Lovemark insist it only brought them closer together.
They decided to go ahead with scans every week for the remainder of the pregnancy but didn’t know how she would be impacted until the birth – but thankfully, she was born perfectly healthy in on June 7, 2022.
Jenny said: ‘We were extremely worried for her [but] it propelled the relationship even deeper.
Their daughter was born on June 7, 2022, and spent a month in neonatal while they ran tests to check she the child’s wellbeing. Thankfully, she is now completely fit and healthy.
As they juggle their busy daily lives with a one-year-old, the couple haven’t had the chance to tie the knot yet – but they hope to throw a huge bash for their family and friends within the next few years.
Jenny explained they considered themselves ‘married’ from the day they decided to keep their daughter, adding: ‘There is no ceremony that could be bigger than us.’
Their family and friends have mostly been supportive of the relationship – as the pair have lots of mutual friends who could see their connection.
Jenny said: ‘We’re showing that it is possible. Happiness and love doesn’t have to be polished.
