Mary Berry's road to her husband

The Great British Bake Off star has been married to her husband, Paul Hunnings, for over 53 years now, but it wasn't easy for Paul to win over her heart.

Mary told Sue Perkins on her An Hour or So With podcast:

Paul was a friend of my brother's. And I met him and we sort of did things together.

While Paul was nice, Berry didn't give him her heart immediately, she was actually quite level-headed about her future. Mary said she had several other boyfriends aside from Hunnings:

But I had another boyfriend in Bath, and he was in London and I used to go home at the weekend... Paul was the London one and I had a Bath one, actually there were several in Bath. You keep your options open.

Ultimately, Paul proved his worth and ended up Mary's one and only. The couple married in 1966.

Hunnings and Berry have two children together: son Thomas Alleyne March and daughter Annabel Mary March.

They had another son, William John March, but he passed away in 1989 at the age of 19 in a car accident.
