McGrath marries fiance in Sydney

Melbourne, Nov 18: Former cricketer Glenn McGrath has reportedly tied the knot with Sara Leonardi in a private ceremony in Sydney. Channel 7 reports that the event was held at their luxury waterfront Woolooware home about 3pm AEST with the date kept a closely held secret, until now.

The property was almost completely shrouded by white sheets, with the pair believed to have signed a deal with a women''s magazine, reports the Herald Sun. There were just nine guests at the ceremony, with no cricketers believed to have been among the guests.

McGrath's first wife, Jane Louise Steele, was born in the United Kingdom and had worked as a flight attendant before their marriage. The two first met at a Hong Kong in 1995 and married four years later. They had a couple of children, James and Holly. Jane McGrath fought recurrent battles with bone cancer and breast cancer, finally succumbing to her illness at age 42. She died from complications following cancer surgery on 22 June 2008. McGrath got engaged to Sara Leonardi, an interior designer after they met in the 2009 Indian Premier League.
