Ron­nie took his now-wife Sally to Sir Paul McCart­ney’s wed­ding

Kuwait Times - - LIFESTYLE -

The Rolling Stones rocker be­came friends with the 38-year-old theatre pro­ducer in 2003, but their re­la­tion­ship didn’t turn ro­man­tic un­til some­time later, and the brunette beauty be­gan to think dif­fer­ently about her pal when she ac­com­pa­nied him to the Bea­tles leg­end’s nup­tials with Nancy Shev­ell in 2011. Sally re­called: “There was this lovely fam­ily at­mos­phere and Ron­nie and I had a real laugh. We danced and it was the first time I re­mem­ber think­ing of him in a com­pletely dif­fer­ent way.” A few weeks later, the 69year-old rocker wrote a let­ter to Sally about how deeply he felt for her, and on the ad­vice of a friend, she agreed to give things a go and the pair will cel­e­brate their fourth wed­ding an­niver­sary next week. And Sally who has six-month-old twins Alice and Gracie with Ron­nie - in­sists the 30-year age gap be­tween them has never been a prob­lem. She said: “You know what, I find it rude when peo­ple talk un­kindly about it... Yes, he is older and I am younger, but I don’t think about age when I think of Ron­nie. He’s al­ways had this un­be­liev­ably pos­i­tive, youth­ful en­ergy about him, which I ab­so­lutely love. “I also think there is a lot to be said for mar­ry­ing an older man. He knows who he is, he knows what he wants. He makes me happy, we laugh and he’s a great dad. He’s so re­laxed and in­cred­i­bly cre­ative.” The ‘Brown Sugar’ rocker is a hands-on dad who is happy to change nap­pies and get up with the ba­bies dur­ing the night. Sally laughed: “He says the ba­bies keep his hours, so he’s re­ally happy to be up in the night with them.”
