One year ago, Steven Alexander posted a hilarious photo of his wife online.
In the photo, which he shared on Imgur and has now been viewed more than 8.9 million times, Steven’s wife has her arms crossed and wears an angry expression as she rides the theme park’s iconic Splash Mountain ride.
"I wouldn't go on Splash Mountain with my wife," he captioned the pic.
One year on, and Steven is sharing the surprisingly heartwarming story behind the viral snap.
"A year ago this week, I posted a picture of my wife riding Splash Mountain. She was alone, sitting in the middle of the third row, giving a real mean stare towards the camera," he wrote on the Love What Matters Facebook page.

"But the story behind the picture is the culmination of a lot of years of struggle for us."
Steven revealed he met his wife after his first kidney transplant had failed, and he was returning to dialysis.
"Starting a new relationship under these circumstances was hard, but she stuck by me - and a few years later we were married," he wrote.
