90-year-old singer, Tony Bennett has revealed how he first met his wife, Susan Benedetto, before she was actually born!
Bennett’s revelation comes in his new book, ‘Just Getting Started,’ where he reveals that Susan’s parents, Marion and Dayl Crow came to one of his shows in New York – even getting to go backstage to pose for a picture with the Italian American singer.
Benedetto was raised listening to Tony’s music and went on to become the head of his fan club. She met him backstage some 40 years ago, when she was just 19 and they went on to have a 20-year courtship before getting married.
OK, it’s not as if Bennett spotted her as a baby bump, but their 40-year age difference is pretty big. Could you date someone that much older than you? I mean, what did they talk about – other than Bennett’s music, obviously!
Still, we’re happy that they’re happy!
