Majella O’Donnell has admitted she first thought her singer husband would be boring and quiet.
But all that changed when they met at her parent’s pub in Tenerife and Daniel asked her out!
Majella reveals all about their initial meeting in her new autobiography ‘It’s All In The Head’ which is released next weekend.
Majella said “I wasn’t into his music and had never seen him perform, so I suppose I had some misconceptions about what he would be like.
“From what I has seen and heard of him myself, I thought he would be quiet and quite boring. I thought the type of music he was into meant that we would have nothing in common.”
But she revealed that they got on like a house on fire when they first met at her parent’s bar and he immediately asked her to join him the next night at a well-known bar called Bobby’s in Tenerife.
“This surprised me, as Bobbys was a nightclub and really didn’t start until one o’clock in the morning. I thought to myself that I had to see this: Daniel O’Donnell in Bobbys.
“At this stage, I didn’t have any thought of Daniel in a romantic way. I just didn’t think it was on the cards.
“I thought he was a lovely guy and very funny, which surprised me, but I was a divorced mother of two children, I didn’t think he would be interested in me,” added Majella.
She even thought that because she drank it might put him off her.
But none of that matters to Daniel. He really does live and let live. He has always allowed me to be the person I am and has never tried to change anything about me. It also helps that he has a great sense of humour,” she said.Tags:
