A young couple out for a birthday celebration in Houston, Texas, thought nothing of it when a kind stranger in a mask offered to take a photo of them together. However, the two got to see the photo only a couple of days later when it went viral on social media. Only then did they realize that the stranger, who stood a few feet from them behind an iPhone, was none other than the iconic pop legend, Cher.

Blogger Syndie Germain and her boyfriend, Tehran Stokes, went out Monday night to celebrate her birthday. After dinner, they were casually strolling through the River Oaks District in Houston and decided to stop for some pictures, according to the New York Post. At first, Stokes was clicking pictures of Germain alone as she held a large bouquet of flowers in her hand.

Out of nowhere, the megastar approached the young couple and offered to take a picture of them together. It wasn’t unusual for strangers to make such an offer, so Germain and Stokes happily posed for the masked “stranger.”

They had no idea that the woman, struggling to get the right settings on her iPhone, was Grammy, Oscar and Emmy Award-winning artist Cher.

The 75-year-old was in the area after having just watched Steven Spielberg's take on "West Side Story," when she stumbled upon the two lovebirds taking pictures outside MAD Houston. Cher was more than happy to click a picture of them together.

Germain said she never got a chance to see the picture at the time because the kind stranger forgot to AirDrop it to them.

Luckily, Cher still managed to ensure that the picture found its way to the couple. She shared it on Twitter and called the pair a “beautiful couple.”

“Had my mask on so they didn’t Know Who I was. MAYBE Just a crazy woman,” the singer added.

As the picture made it to the corners of the internet, it also found its way to Germain’s timeline, leaving her stunned to know that Cher was the one who clicked their picture that night.

“What are the odds if by a couple of seconds we had stayed in the restaurant, we would have missed that opportunity!” Germain told ABC13 about the chanced encounter.

Twitter users and ardent fans of the world-famous diva wondered how it was possible for Germain not to recognize Cher.

“She had a mask on, and when she asked to take our photo, she was far away from us,” Germain admitted. “It was dark, and she was fully covered, but we kept thinking this wasn’t an average person.”
