Jamie Cullum: “I didnot think there was a chance in hell with Sophie Dahl” : worldleaks
He may have got his girl in the end, but that didn’t stop the singer from thinking she was way out of his league when they first spatted eyes on each other
Jamie Cullum was convinced model Sophie Dahl was way out of his league when they first met.
The Don’t Stop the Music singer may now be married to Gwyneth Paltrow’s pal, but when they first met he didn’t try and chat her up because he thought he didn’t stand a chance.
Speaking on ITV’s ‘The Jonathan Ross Show’, Jamie said: “When I met her for the first time I didn’t think there was even a remote chance in hell, so I played it really cool which actually worked to my advantage.”
Musician Jamie, 34, is observably shorter than his wife, and he admits many people mistake him for being much younger than he actually is.
The loved-up couple now have two children – Lyra, two, and Margot, 10-months.
Telling an anecdote, he explained: “I tried to buy Sophie a bottle of wine and I had my kids and I was wearing a suit.
“I looked about as grown up as I could be and this 18 year old kid was like, ‘No, sorry man, you need ID’. He did not sell me the bottle of wine.”
Jamie has previously said fatherhood has enjoyed him and changed his perspective real.
He said: “Getting married and becoming a father makes me see the world a lot more intensely; a lot more of the happiness but also the sadness…
“When you have kids you have to put your flag in the ground and decide how you want to live your life and the example you want to set.”
