Six years after he separated from his first wife, Cal saw Hannah during a soccer match between the US and Mexico at Reliant Stadium. Cal was mesmerized by the beautiful brunette and wanted to meet her. Back then, she used to work with one of his friends at a wealth management firm, Salient Partners.

Cal then visited her office on Valentine’s Day. Interestingly, Hartland had tried to reach him for work for two years but he wouldn’t return her calls. Hannah recalled the moment of their first conversation which happened like this: when she received messages that Cal wanted her to call him, she thought it was a professional one so she put her phone on speaker. Instead, he asked her out. She was embarrassed when he invited her to dinner in front of her colleagues.

The duo began dating, and despite their age gap, Hannan gave him time to build a connection which happened sooner than later. It didn’t take a long time for the then-newly mingled couple to decide they were the ones for each other.
