I am so full with emotion that today the three us with Cheryl have got to this point after all of our years of growing up together and the experiences we've shared, that like Cheryl said has shaped us into who we are.
"Thinking to the beginning of you both, Cheryl and I letting you share secret dates in our flat.. 11 years later we get to see you and Justin catch the fairytale and celebrate your untouchable love.
