Fearne Meets the Dad
Meeting your boyfriend’s parents can be daunting. But, what happens when his dad just happens to be a rock legend?
Well, that seems to be the case for UK’s Radio 1 DJ Fearne Cotton who found herself in the company of Rolling Stones guitarist Ronnie Wood last week when her boyfriend, Ronnie’s son Jesse Wood, introduced the two at the Polo Rock 2011 event in Surrey. Fearne spent the afternoon getting to know the super cool 64-year-old rock star and his new girlfriend, Brazilian model Ana Araujo – who just happens to be the same age as Fearne, 29. And, even her mum tagged along to the event.
And, while it might seem a little too soon for the whole meet-the-parents scenario, sources close to the young couple claim they’re already quite serious. “She’s completely smitten,” said an insider. “Glastonbury was their first public outing and no one realised who Jesse was even though he was quite a famous model for a time. But they didn’t care who saw them together. There’s something electric between them.”
Jesse once had a brief fling with Kate Moss, and is father to two children from his first marriage. Fearne recently ended her relationship with professional skateboarder Jesse Jenkins.
