  • This one of the few rare photos of my wife and I, taken on a trip to Las Vegas when we were the guests of one of the nicest men it has ever been my honor to meet. My wife, Danielle hates having her photo taken so this is one of the few pics I have of her.

    I wanted to introduce her to you though because this is the woman, THE woman, the one with the power to turn my entire world upside down and make me cross an entire ocean to a different continent, leaving behind my family, my country, my culture, my friends, my way of life - to be with her.

    You know what? I don't regret making that change one little bit. She is worth it all, and a lot more. I'd do it all again tomorrow, if she'd still have me. I've not been the greatest husband, I know, but what she has given me and brought into my life, is something I can never hope to repay. I love her. More than she knows, more than I show. It took the best part of my lifetime to find her - and for the longest time I grew into believing that I would just be 'the single guy'.

    Then she came into my life and changed everything and I've never looked back since.

    We now have two incredible, frustrating, amazing, intelligent, beautiful boys. Since they arrived I have discovered so much about myself, not least the fact that I never envisaged I could feel love so deep it's beyond words. That is what Danielle has given me.

    She is the only woman who has ever said that she loves me, and meant it, and I am extremely proud to stand beside her and be her man. I am proud to show her off to you all and tell you all, publicly, that I love this woman, the mother of our children, more than life itself.

    I love you Danielle, now, tomorrow and forever!
