Shara & Bear Grylls: Dating, Wedding, Children
Shara and Bear Grylls first met in 1997 in Scotland. It was New Year’s Eve and the 23 years old duo met on a beach as Bear just came out from a quick swim in the ocean.
Funnily, at the time, Bear was naked because his clothes were dragged into the ocean. So, the nude Bear Grylls stumbled upon his future wife while searching for his clothes.
Talking about being naked, Bear even proposed to Shara while he was skinny dipping. He shared,
“I was swimming with no clothes on. I pulled out the ring from my butt cheeks.”
Fortunately, that was just a joke, he had the engagement ring in his hand.
As of 2020, the couple was married for 20 years. For their wedding in 2000, they asked their married guests to give them advice on how to have a long and loving marriage as presents. And the best advice they got was from a couple who advised them “to never stop holding hands”.
Thus, Shara’s book, “Never Stop Holding Hands”.
Shara and Bear wanted to keep their marriage strong. So, they even attended marriage counseling the year they got married. Bear shared that they needed to plan a date night once a week to keep the fire burning.
And their bond is even strong with the three children they share; Jesse (born in 2003), Marmaduke (born in 2006), and Huckleberry (born in 2009).
The Grylls family split their time between London and their vacation house in North Wales. Most of the time they tend to stay in London while focusing on work and go to Wales only for a break.
