“His tweet will be something I share with my grandchildren.”
Addison Arledge, 23, is recovering from heart palpitations after her teen heartthrob Jesse McCartney — whom she wed in her mind in the early 2000s — noticed her online. Arledge told BuzzFeed News she is now in stable condition.
“I knew I had to include Jesse McCartney because from the years of 2003–2005 I thought we were probably going to be married,” Arledge said. “My room was covered in posters of him I got out of Tiger Beat or J-14.”
Arledge said when she saw his response, she called everyone she knew and even “considered sending out a baby announcement–style card in the mail.” Not being dramatic at all, she added, “his tweet will be something I share with my grandchildren.”
“I got engaged to my longtime boyfriend… So I guess there is no hope for Jesse and me after all,” she reported, sadly.
“However, I would be open to a Hallmark movie love triangle inspired by this situation.”
BuzzFeed News has reached out to McCartney for comment, although additional comment may not be healthiest for Arledge's heart at the moment.
