I have seven children that I am so proud of. I’m a grandfather at fifty. And I found Jeannie, such a wife. She took my four children from my previous marriage, and she won ‘em over, and she was so young. They call her Mom, you know. And we had three others, but she loved ‘em like my four. Isn’t that fabulous? After my divorce, the court eventually gave me the children, and I think it was the first time in California that a man got the children…But what luck that my Jeannie was there and was such a fine lady. My Jeannie and her blue eyes. I call ‘em Nazi eyes. Thanks to them, I don’t even care about givin’ my ex-wife $2,400 a month for 18 years. -Dean Martin on his wife Jeanne, 1967
You found me just in time, and changed my lonely life that lucky day.
