The couple met in 1999 even though their families had knowned each other before then. The couple had two kids before they got married as Julie was hesitant about getting into a marriage as she had witnessed a divorce in her family before.
Her husband convinced her and they tied the knot in November 2003.
In the past, Julie admitted how she was wary about marrying a former Jamhuri High School alumni (which Anthony is).
“So, when I was in high school, many, many, many years ago 😄 we would panic when Jamu boys came through our all-girls convent school, Msongari...Jamu boys coming through Msongari meant that there had been a rugby match. Often these matches with Jamu (in particular) left our brothers and friends battered and bruised. We were concerned."
"They walked through our school with high energy making their presence known – they were loud and unapologetic.“Gosh!” us girls would say to each other. “These Jamu boys are just too much! Tsk! Tsk!”..Lol! Then I went and married one 😄😄😄🙏🙏🙏❤❤❤ ”
