Although the details regarding Jon and his wife’s wedding hasn’t been disclosed, we know a bit about their honeymoon. The couple’s honeymoon took place in Kenya 20 years ago.
In 2016, the couple went back to the place again to relive the moment, but this time they weren’t alone as they took their kids along with them. Although people told Jon that they shouldn’t go back, they had to go there because they had rich memories from that exact place.
Jon admitted that the couple couldn’t visit Seychelles last time because of lack of budget. The pair had a long bill from their wedding that was left to be paid. This time he not only visited Kenya with his loved ones but also went to Seychelles. He said:
“It is beyond fabulous, mixing ethnic chic with a touch of Out Of Africa colonial grandeur and in no way does it seem incongruous. It is comfortable; intimate even, with staff dedicated to serving whatever you need.”
Slightly rude Jon Sopel and Babita Sharma:
It seems like Jon feels a strong attachment to wild animals as his description of his trip had overwhelming explanations about the wild creatures present in the beautiful land.
Jon and his pretty wife appear to be in as much love as they were in the beginning of their relationship, maybe even more, but no less. They stand as an inspiration to all the falling couples out there. We believe that their relationship will last till eternity.
