Mumbai: On Saturday, former South African batsman Graeme Smith tied the knot with his Romy Lanfranchi.

After tying the knot, the former Proteas captain took to twitter and upload the moments from the special occasion.

 

In 2014, the 38-year old left-handed batter got earlier married to Irish pop singer Morgan Deane, and also during the same year, he separated from Deane.

From the previous marriage, Smith has two kids – Cadence (7) and Carter (6). The Proteas legend also has two-year-old Sebastien from Romy.

Coming back to his wedding moments, Smith got engaged with Romy in 2018 and, ultimately, the couple got hitched.

Smith captioned his photo as – “2 November was an incredible day!!.” The ex-cricketer also stated the wedding took place on Saturday.

Last week, Smith posted a picture on Instagram, in which he can be seen hugging his wife Romy. Smith gave a photo caption, which read “3 sleeps”.

Interestingly, his marriage occurred on the same day when the South African rugby team had won the Rugby World Cup by defeating England in the finals.

This was their third marriage and the day on which they got married made the occasion worthwhile.

Three years back, Romy told the reporters that she got completely stumped after she met Graeme Smith, whom she found very down-to-earth. “He’s a stable person and we have the same values and interests,” Romy had said in 2016.
