You have to wonder when you are 80 years old, why are you ever getting married at that point?
With that being said, Patriots owner Bob Kraft decided to tie the knot.
The interesting thing about it was that he didn’t tell anyone. Everyone just thought they were going to a fancy party, according to NY Post.
He’s added another ring!
New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft married Dr. Dana Blumberg in a star-studded surprise wedding in New York City on Friday night, Page Six has exclusively learned.
We hear the 81-year-old billionaire and 47-year-old doctor invited guests to a “Kickoff and a Touchdown” party at the Hall des Lumières in lower Manhattan and told them to dress festively, but did not disclose that they’d be tying the knot.
Sources say the couple showed a moving 10-minute video before they were introduced to the crowd of about 250 as husband and wife by the voice of NFL commentator Al Michaels.
Kraft stepped on a glass during the party per Jewish tradition and explained its meaning to the gathering, (but it’s unclear when and where the pair actually said “I do”).
We hear that Kraft told the crowd that the couple only hatched plans for the lavish wedding celebration mere weeks ago after they went backstage at Sir Elton John’s recent “Farewell Yellow Brick Road” tour stop at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass.
A source told us of the “Rocketman” singer, “He loved [Blumberg’s] engagement ring. He said, ‘When are you getting married?’”
When the couple said they were thinking of quietly eloping, John, 75, apparently told them, “Well, when you get married I want to play as a gift!”
The couple took the rock legend up on his offer and picked the one date John had available. Said a guest, “Elton just did this as a friend and to honor their friendship. They planned this event in, like, three weeks!”
That was very nice of Elton John.
