Martin Lewis and Lara Lewington married in 2009
As Martin Lewis and Lara Lewington prefer to keep their life private, it is unclear when the couple met for the first time. It is rumoured that Lewis and Lewington met in the early noughties (2000s) just as Martin’s business took off.
The couple decided to tie the knot in 2009 in a very private ceremony. Indeed unlike most celebrities, they didn’t have a lucrative magazine photoshoot, as reported by Daily Mail. They married on May 31, 2009, and their first dance was Can't Take My Eyes Off You by Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons.
Martin Lewis revealed in 2020 on his Desert Island Discs episode that the song Can't Take My Eyes Off You, is the song he and his now wife would often sing on their romantic getaways early in their relationship:
We would occasionally hire a motorbike when we were on holiday and we'd sit there and we'd sing this song in the sun, on the back of a moped.
Martin and Lara brought a daughter into this world in 2012 called Sapphire Susan Lewis. Martin has admitted that out of the two of them, Lara is the stricter one with their daughter:
When my daughter was born, I remember saying: "I'll buy her everything she needs, but not everything she wants". Unfortunately, I didn't factor in her special power. Those eyes.
I'm helpless and usually resort to saying, "Ask mummy", because mummy is stronger than me. We don't splurge on her, but one of my greatest joys is making her happy
