Australian golfer Greg Norman is to marry for the third time, it has been revealed.
Preparations for the event, which will include the sending of wedding invitations, are underway.
The 55-year-old, who only divorced his previous wife six months ago, is to get hitched to 41-year-old mother-of-two Kirsten Kutner.
Recently, he presented her with a six-carat diamond ring.
No information has yet been given concerning whether or not the pair will use traditional wedding invitations or opt for the more modern and convenient method of email wedding invitations.
According to New Idea magazine, Norman’s soon-to-be bride said he was the “big love” of her life. She added: “I am definitely the luckiest woman on this earth.”
Ms Kutner added: “I am so blessed to have such an amazing man to share my life with.”
Meanwhile, talking about how the engagement came about, her man noted: “One minute were having a day-to-day conversation and the next moment, all of a sudden, everything changed – our lives changed. It was perfect.”
According to friends of the couple, the golfer and Ms Kutner, who had known each other for some time in Australia, ran into one another at a hotel in Egypt last year.
A source said: “Greg and Kirsten saw each other at the hotel where Kirsten had been part of the interior design team. Greg was there on business and was more than happy to see her.
“He has held a candle for Kirsten for quite a while and he’s not holding back on his affection for her now.”
Meanwhile, a friend added that Ms Kutner is a laid-back, grounded person. The individual went on to note: “She is worldly and has lived all over the world.” In addition, she is comfortable in any social situation.
Because of the international nature of their lives, it is possible that she and her sporty other half will opt to send email wedding invitations.
