Stephen Hawking, Wife Jane Wilde, Look Lovely On Their Wedding Day In 1965 (PHOTO)

We love uncovering old photos of famous people before they became the celebrities we know today. That's why we totally geeked out when we came across this picture of famed British physicist Stephen Hawking from his wedding day in 1965.

On Thursday, Redditor dj1964 posted the photo of Hawking, who turned 71 earlier this year, and his bride Jane Wilde. Check out the adork-ably handsome devil in the photo below:

The now-wheelchair-bound author of "A Brief History of Time" was diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) -- also known as Lou Gehrig's disease -- when he was 21, which drastically affected both his mobility and speech.

Hawking and Wilde divorced in 1990 after 26 years of marriage and three children together. He married his caregiver, Elaine Mason, in 1995, but the pair called it quits in 2006.
