While Pat tweeted a simple “Happy 20th Wedding Anniversary!!!!” with a love emoji and kissy-face, her man tweeted a longer message that read:

“I will always be here for you and I can’t wait to see what the next 20 hold for us. @PatSmithTY!! Love, E.”

The NFL player and the author, who share three children, have been dishing out #couplegoals since they walked down the aisle in 2000.

Lawrence, however, filed for divorce from Shamicka in 2012 and by 2017, the “Martin” star proposed to Roberta Moradfar following months of dating.

Asides having a seemingly successful marriage, Britannica reported that Emmitt gained more fame when he became the all-time leading rusher in NFL history in 2002. He, however, retired after the 2004 season with 18,355 yards rushing.

In fact, Emmitt took things up a notch when they told The Dallas Morning News that they wanted to live their life like they aren’t celebrities.
