The couple's romance started many years ago at church. Hubert went with a friend and remembers, "We slid into that pew, and the view in front of us was full of girls. One of them turned around, looked at me and smiled. That started the whole thing." He adds, "I often wondered how our life would have turned out had she not smiled." What was June thinking at the same time? She tells The Washington Post, "He was so handsome. I just fell for him."

Is your heart melting yet? Because ours are! The Malicotes are pure inspiration and #couplegoals.

When Should I Take Creatine?

Creatine is probably the most well-researched supplement on the market today. Numerous studies have found positive adaptations in strength, power and muscle mass thanks to creatine supplementation—especially when it's combined with resistance training.
