Actor David Harbour Reveals Who Convinced Him To Marry Lily Allen
David Harbour has revealed during an interview on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!‘ how Lily Allen’s two daughters finally pushed him to marry the British singer.
Harbour married Allen last September during the pandemic in an intimate wedding revealed it was Lily’s daughters Marnie and Ethel that had driven him to finally tie the knot with the singer.
Harbour and Allen initially got engaged before the pandemic however wedding plans had to be put on hold.
“We got engaged right before the pandemic. Then the pandemic hit and nothing was happening.” Harbour recalled.
David was on a bike ride with Lily’s two children when the youngest daughter referred to Harbour as ‘Dad’.
“We were riding around beginning of pandemic — she has two kids, these beautiful daughters, 8 and 9 — and we were riding bikes out in the country”
“And the little one was riding along and she was going like, ‘David, Dad, David, Dad. Because the ‘d’ got her confused,” David explained. “And the older one got very upset with that, which I understand, and was like, ‘He’s not our dad! He’s not our dad!’”
David continued, saying, “And the younger one was like, ‘Well, what is he? He’s kind of our dad.’ She’s like, ‘No, he’s not.’ ‘He’s kind of our stepdad.’ ‘No, he’s not.’ And she goes, ‘What is he?’ And she goes, ‘He’s just some guy in our lives!’”
Harbour referred to the moment as a wake-up call. “I was like, ‘I need to marry this woman,’”.
