Couples often make grand plans on Valentine’s Day to make their partner feel special. But, here we bring you a story of a couple who made it to the Guinness World Record by celebrating Valentine’s Day in a different manner.

Yes, you heard it right. The couple entered Guinness World Record by performing the longest underwater kiss which lasted for 4 minutes and 6 seconds.

The couple identified as Beth Neale from South Africa and Miles Cloutier from Canada set the record by kissing each other in the infinity pool at a hotel in Maldives.

The couple, who is divers and live in South Africa with their daughter, broke their previous 13-year-old record. They had kissed each other for 3 minutes 24 seconds under water then. 

The official Twitter handle of Guinness World Records shared a video of the couple with a caption that reads, "These lovebirds set a new underwater kiss record since their joint love was the ocean."

Even though Beth and Miles are professional divers, the duo has admitted to having faced problems while performing the task.

"Three days before the record I could just not hold my breath," Beth, a four-times South African Freedive Champion, was quoted as saying. 

"We couldn't even reach the existing record - we weren't even close," Miles said.
