Glenn McGrath & Sara Leonardi: We're getting married

Cricket superstar Glenn McGrath will later this year marry the woman who helped heal his broken heart. With a huge smile lighting up his face, Glenn couldn’t hide his joy when girlfriend Sara Leonardi accepted his proposal just 15 months after they met.

“Yes, we’re engaged,” Glenn, 40, confirmed to Woman’s Day last week. “And we’re both very happy about it.”

The former Test bowler, who thought he’d never find love again after the tragic death of his wife, Jane, has now officially given his heart to 28-year-old Sara, who is wearing an impressive diamond engagement ring.

The proposal was no shock to the couple’s family and friends, who are thrilled Glenn has overcome his sorrow, thanks to his new love. “He’s enjoying himself now, which is what it’s all about,” says a close friend. “He deserves to have some fun.”

“I see him all the time and he is so happy with Sara,” agrees another friend of the couple, who were introduced in April last year at a party in South Africa’s Cape Town, where Sara was living and Glenn was playing cricket.
