Elvis Costello reflected on the unusual way he met his wife in front of millions of people watching the Grammy Awards.
British singer-songwriter, born Declan Patrick MacManus, has been married to Canadian pianist and jazz singer Diana Krall since 2003.
Appeared on Jessie Ware’s Table manners On the podcast she hosted with her mother, Lennie Ware, Costello talked about the moment they met.
“Strangely, we met on stage in front of billions of people,” he said. “We met to present the award.”
When asked by Jessie Ware if the appeal was “instant,” Costello said it was for him, “for sure, but I don’t know how I would approach the subject.” .
The pair quickly became friends, and Costello said, “thankfully saw our future the same way.”
He explained that he and Krall had met a short time before but their first proper meeting “made it sound like it was pieced together by the gods of fanfare”.
“It was just a coincidence,” he added.
Costello and Krall share twin sons, Dexter and Frank, born in 2006. He also has an older son, Matthew, from his first marriage to Mary Burgoyne.
Costello, Krall and their children recently moved from her hometown of Vancouver to Manhattan, New York.
