Rick Wakeman - Fourth Marriage For Rick Wakeman
Rocker Rick Wakeman has wed for a fourth time - to a woman 25 years his junior.
The former Yes musician, 62, married 37-year-old Rachel Kaufman in a ceremony at a windmill in Norfolk, England on 14 December (11), his agent Roger de Courcey has confirmed.
De Courcey tells Britain's Daily Mirror, "It was a very small wedding and reception, a private affair. Rick thoroughly enjoyed a pleasant day and he is very happy. He did say he wasn't going to marry again but Rachel is a lovely lady and she must have changed his mind."
Wakeman adds, "I was worried about an ageing old rocker like me marrying a lovely young girl like Rachel. So I asked her parents' permission before I asked her for her hand in marriage. Thankfully, they said yes."
The rocker divorced his third wife, former glamour model Nina Carter, in 2004 after 20 years together. He was previously married to Danielle Corminboeuf and Rosaline Woolford, who he wed at the age of 20. Wakeman has four sons and a daughter from his previous marriages.
