Credit: Norman SeeffThis Sunday, Heart frontwoman Ann Wilson and her husband, Dean Wetter, will celebrate their first Valentine’s Day as a married couple. Wilson, who tied the knot with Wetter on April 25, 2015, certainly has hearts in her eyes for her spouse, describing their relationship as “totally amazing.”

“It’s just a beautiful marriage of souls and spirits and bodies, and we’re just happy as we can be,” she tells ABC Radio. “And we’re still in the very beginning stages, so we’re still howling at each other like puppies.”

The singer adds with a laugh that because of their lovey-dovey behavior, “all our friends are going, like, ‘Oh God,’ [but] it’s a beautiful way to feel.”

As romantic as things are now between her and Wetter, Wilson admits that the romance got off on the wrong foot when the two first met back in the 1980s.

“We had a really disastrous blind date where we got really drunk on sake, and I tried to come on to him and he was a real gentleman and he declined,” the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer reveals. “[And] I was all offended, so I said, ‘Well, see you later.’ And so, he went off and lived his life and I went off and lived mine.”

Luckily, says Wilson, she included her return address in a kiss-off note she sent Wetter after the date, and she tells ABC Radio that he eventually came across the message about four or five years ago and decided to reconnect with her.

“He got in touch with me and he said, ‘Well, OK, that’s past now, so if you want to communicate, let’s communicate,'” Ann recalls. “So I said, ‘Yeah, let’s communicate,’ and we did. And it was the right thing to say, because we’re meant for each other. And we fell in love so hard and so fast and so big that we haven’t been apart since.”

Reflecting on how her relationship with Wetter unfolded, Wilson notes, “[Sometimes] you’re meant to come together later, at a different moment, when you’re at a different stage in your development for it to work. And that’s really what happened with us. ‘Cause we’re both the same age and we know what we want, what we don’t want. We’ve had our children. We want to live out the rest of our lives together, traveling and experiencing stuff.”

Now that’s a “Heart”-warming story.
