Jamie Redknapp’s parents Harry and Sandra were forced to make a mad dash to Bermuda when he shared the surprise news he was marrying his now ex-wife Louise Redknapp.
Harry, 75, and Sandra, 74, were in France when Jamie, 49, called to tell them he had popped the question to Louise – and they were getting married in a matter of days.
Recalling the moment in their new book, When Harry Met Sandra, Sandra shares: “Harry and I were in France where we had been watching the 1998 World Cup when Jamie called with the news. ‘We are getting married in Bermuda… this week,’ he said.”
She continues: “Harry and I rushed home from France and picked up our outfits – I chose a beige palm print dress – then we were straight on a plane to Bermuda.”
Jamie married Louise, 47, in an intimate ceremony on board an 80-foot white yacht called Lady Erica on June 29, just three days after he popped the question.
Jamie and Louise, who are parents to son Charley, 18, and Beau, 13, were married for almost 20 years before their split in 2017. They finalised their divorce the following year.
The breakdown of their marriage came after Louise’s stint on Strictly Come Dancing.
Louise later revealed in her autobiography that she regrets not putting more effort into trying to save the relationship.
“I wish I’d tried. I want to say to anyone thinking of running: Just slow down. Don’t run,” she wrote. "Because once you run too fast, you can’t make up the ground you’ve lost.
"Stop, say what you need, say what you think, don’t be afraid to say what’s really going on. You don’t have to be quiet."
Former footballer Jamie has since moved on with model Frida Andersson, who he wed in October 2021.
They welcomed their first child together, son Raphael, a month later. Frida also has four children from her marriage to American hedge fund tycoon Jonathan Lourie.
Meanwhile, Harry and Sandra have been married for 53 years after meeting at their local pub at the age of 17.
In their new memoir, they will be lifting the lid on the secrets to their happy marriage, how Sandra has been Harry’s rock throughout his career, and their expanding family following the birth of grandson Raphael.
Harry previously shared: "Sandra and I are excited to reveal that we're releasing a book together later this year sharing our love, highs and lows from 50 years of marriage.
"We have so many stories that we can't wait to share with you all. 'When Harry Met Sandra' will be on sale this Autumn."
