Giovanna Fletcher says her McFly hubby, Tom, cries more often than she does.
Talking to Kate Thornton on the latest episode of White Wine Question Time, the author and podcaster said her husband is much more of a softie than she is.
“Tom cries a lot,” she said. “Happy tears! But he cries more than me.”
The couple met, aged 13, at the Sylvia Young Theatre School and years later Tom proposed in the same spot where they first set eyes on each other. It wasn’t all plain sailing though, as the school had been sold and moved to another building.
“He (Tom) had to get in touch with the people who had bought it and were doing it up,” explained Giovanna. “Walls were missing, there weren't mirrors where they were before… He'd put rose petals everywhere and candles. It was absolutely beautiful.”
Tom’s speech at his 2012 wedding to Giovanna has more than 20 million views on YouTube. Not only did he sing the entire thing, but he was also accompanied by a choir from the Sylvia Young Theatre School.
Asked by Kate during the podcast if Tom was just as romantic now, Giovanna laughed: “We've had three kids now. A romantic night for us is on the sofa with a glass of wine and watching Game of Thrones. That's real life.”
