Age Shall Not Weary Him

by | 14th, October 2004

‘IT is a truth universally acknowledged that a man in possession of a bus pass should be in need of a wife of half his age.

‘So, are you my mother or my sister?’

And so it is that we join with Hello! in congratulating 55-year-old piano man Billy Joel who got married last week to 23-year-old TV presenter Kate Lee.

The balding Bronx-born crooner had his 18-year-old daughter (by his second marriage – to Chrissie Brinkley) act as maid of honour at the ceremony at his Long Island home.

But over the other side of the Atlantic, his achievement was being thoroughly overshadowed by Julio Iglesias’s dad, who introduces us to his new baby son…at the age of 89.

The randy octogenarian became a dad again just four months ago with his 40-year-old second wife Ronna – herself almost half a century his junior.

Young Jaime Nathaniel Iglesias Puga may not know it yet, but he is brother to 61-year-old Spanish crooner Julio and uncle to singing heartthrob Enrique.

Hell, he might soon be able to call Anna Kournikova his niece.

So what does the future hold in store for the soon-to-be-fatherless toddler?

‘I hope he’s got a zest for life and that he’s honest,’ says Julio Iglesias Snr.

And that he too grows up to marry a woman of less than half his age – so that when Enrique celebrates his 100th birthday many years from now he can look forward to a visit from his 30-year-old aunt…’
