Nigerian football legend Kanu Nwankwo was not missing in action for St Valentine's Day on Sunday, February 14.
The two-time Premier League winner was spotted wearing matching Arsenal replicas with his wife as they pose for pictures.
Papilo, as he is fondly referred to, got married to his wife in June 2004 but the love birds do not seem like they can get enough of each other.
The 44-year-old sat on a stool and lapped his partner as they both wore adorable smiles in a well-lit environment.
Kanu also posted a few other pictures where he shared some romantic hugs with his wife while they appeared in matching black outfits. He accompanied his posts with some lovely words for her.
"A moment of pure gratitude from myself and Amara Kanu to God for giving us the best Valentine’s gift 16 years ago.
"Forever grateful and thankful. Our son is 16 years and we love you so much Sean Kanu. Happy valentine to my love @amarakanu happy valentine to everyone and keep the positive vibes up."
The couple also celebrated their son Sean who turned 16 on Sunday and they send him their love on his special day.
Legit.ng earlier reported that Arsenal legend Kanu Nwankwo has praised his former team over their draw with fierce rivals Manchester United on Saturday, January 30.
Both teams approached the cracker coming with contrasting results as Arsenal defeated Southampton 3-1 while United were stunned 2-1 at Old Trafford by relegation-threatened Sheffield United in their previous fixtures respectively.
It means United are still unable to beat any of their ‘Big Six’ rivals in the English topflight so far this campaign.
