…But Their Paths Unexpectedly Cross Again

Kelvin said that by random chance, the pair found each other again.

‘I’m in a random bar in Manchester and who of all people appears in the crowd dancing towards me?’

That is to say, the rest, is history!

The Couple Dated For 10 Years Before Tying The Knot In November 2015

Kelvin said:

‘I always felt it was inevitable we would get married one day, but when we started thinking about having children, I knew I had to get a move on – especially as I’d love to have five.

‘We didn’t need a piece of paper to prove anything because we know we love each other. But now that it’s here, it feels so right. Marriage completes us.’

A year to the day after Kelvin got down on one knee, he and Eliza got hitched at London’s One Mayfair. The venue was lavishly decorated with hundreds of white roses and candles. How romantic!

The musical-themed big day was one to remember and when Kelvin competed in this year’s series of dancing show Strictly Come Dancing, he gave an emotional introductory speech about his wife.

‘When she walked down that aisle she took my breath away. Best moment of my life, it was just amazing. I just want Liz to know how lucky I feel. Thank you for giving me two amazing incredible children.’

Who’s been cutting onions again?!

The Couple Welcomed Daughter Marnie In 2016

On 25th August 2016, Eliza gave birth to the couple’s first daughter Marnie Molly. After a gruelling 30 hours in the delivery room which resulted in the new mum needing a blood transfusion, Liz revealed to OK! magazine that the ‘traumatic’ birth experience had not deterred her from having more children:

‘Marnie’s incredible, she’s such a little angel. She sleeps really well and she’s a really calm baby.’

In other words, all worth it in the end, eh?

Kelvin said:

‘I was really worried that after the birth, Liz wouldn’t want any more kids – but a couple of days after Marnie was born, Liz told me she couldn’t wait to have another baby!’

Onto Baby Number 2!

Subsequently, in December 2018, Kelvin and Eliza had baby number two, a son called Milo.
