Footballer Jermain Defoe has tied the knot with his Glaswegian fiance at Cliveden House, the venue where Meghan Markle stayed the night before she married Prince Harry.
Speaking exclusively to OK! from their sun-soaked honeymoon in the Maldives, Jermain says: “I never planned to get married by a certain age, but because I’ve been focused on my career for the past 22 years, it’s always been go, go, go.
“I always knew at some stage I was going to meet the right one and at the back end of my career, I go to Glasgow, play for Rangers and meet my future wife.”
There's no doubt the football star has had a successful career over the years.
Here's a look inside his impressive net worth…
What is Jermain Defoe's net worth?
Footballer Jermain began his career with Charlton Athletic, joining their youth team aged 14.
He has played for some of the top teams in the Premier League and holds the record for most goals scored as a substitute.
He's also the ninth highest scorer of the English premier division and sixth-highest score in Tottenham Hotspur’s history.
He has now retired, but the footballer has a reported net worth of a huge £16,286,920, according to Celebrity Net Worth.
The star has also gone on to become a pundit for the sport, and boasts an impressive 566,000 followers on social media.
It therefore likely comes as no surprise that the star pulled out all the stops for his wedding to bride Donna.
Their 'crazy' three-day wedding saw the footballer splurge on everything from flamethrowers to a seven-tier cake and opulent decor.
The couple’s romance timeline dates back to his time playing for Sunderland FC in 2016, when he reached out to the beautiful brunette on social media.
“We met years ago when I was playing for Sunderland and I messaged her on Instagram,” reveals Jermain. “I sent her DM. We had a general chit-chat but hadn’t spoken for ages.
“When I started playing for Rangers in 2019 I remembered Donna was from Glasgow and touched base with her again – I kept looking at her sexy pictures on Instagram. But we didn’t meet until January 2021 when Donna asked if I could give her a signed football shirt for a charity do.”
Donna, who owns her own natural skincare business, Marinical.com, smiles, “It took a couple of years because I was playing hard to get!”
Jermain, 39, and Donna, 40, describe their big day as “like a movie”. But she hadn’t always planned on having an extravagant wedding. “I’ve always been very independent and business focused,” she says. “I was taken by surprise, but obviously it took all these years to meet the right person and it all just felt right.”
