Woman reveals how she fell in love and married her delivery guy after one phone call


A young woman from Brisbane, Australia, has shared the story of how she took the initiative to ask out her mail delivery guy through text message even before meeting him in person.

In an interview with South West News Service, Tanatsa Lucas, 30, revealed that she felt a strong connection with the courier, who is now her husband, Corey Lucas, 28, after a brief phone conversation.

“I was doing my nails at the time, and my delivery driver called,” the mom of two remembered. “He was speaking really nicely on the phone and was very respectful.”

“I could tell even being on the phone with him for less than a minute that there was just something different about him,” Tanatsa, a native of Zimbabwe, said.

Corey’s smooth talk over the phone prompted her to shoot her shot at him and ask him out for a drink.

“I asked him if he would mind dropping the package outside my apartment, as I was going to be going out soon,” she said. “Something inside me was telling me to shoot my shot and ask him out.”

“I was newly single. I don’t know what happened, but something just came over me and I just thought, ‘I may as well ask — you never know,’” Tanatsa said.

Barely an hour after Corey delivered her package, Tanatsa sent him a text message that reads, “You single by any chance? Haha.” Fortunately for her, he was also single and ready to mingle.

Tanatsa said she wanted to act like the character Paulette, played by Jennifer Coolidge in “Legally Blonde,” who had a crush on a UPS deliveryman portrayed by actor Bruce Thomas in the 2001 film.

After confirming his relationship status, Tanatsa and Corey went out for a beer at a local bar.

“It went really well; he was saying all the right things. We just totally clicked from our first meeting,” said Tanatsa. “He came back to my apartment, but nothing happened.”

However, things took a massive twist when she got pregnant three months later.

“That was not at all planned,” Tanatsa insisted. “I thought, ‘Oh s–t.’”

She said she was initially worried that her new lover would be upset about the pregnancy but she was relieved when he asked her to marry him.

“It was only six months after our first meet-up, so I was blown away, but I said yes,”
Tanatsa gushed.

The couple got married in December 2020. A few months later, in June 2021, they welcomed their first son, Archie, who is now 2 years old. They also welcomed their second son, Theodore, in August 2023.

“We grew to love each other even more after our second baby,” she said. “We still had our challenges, I had post-natal depression after our first baby, but we developed an understanding and are doing great.

“The only difference is before we had kids it was all about us — we now have to balance it out,” added Tanatsa. “We are really hands-on with the kids together; it’s really nice.”
