Jamie Cullum - Jamie Cullum:'Sophie Dahl Was Out Of My League'

British singer Jamie Cullum has opened up about his relationship with Sophie Dahl, admitting he didn't think "for one second" the model would fall for him.
The couple began dating in 2007 and married three years later (10, before welcoming a baby daughter last March (11).
Cullum admits he thought the model was out of his league when they first met and was stunned when they discovered a mutual attraction.
Speaking on Britain's Radio 4, he says, "We started chatting about books we both loved and she was a proper bookworm and we just got on really well.
"I didn't entertain for one second that she would be interested in me. I assumed that everyone who met her would fall in love with her so I didn't necessarily think it would be my place, so I played it pretty cool.
"She was living in New York and she had a boyfriend. Six to eight months later she moved back to England and obviously it became more after that."
