Is Irish chef Donal married? Who is his wife?

Yes, Donal is married to Sofie Larsson.

Sofie, who is Swedish, and Donal have been together since 2006 and tied the knot in 2015.

He asked her to marry him after they had been together for eight years.

They were on a romantic getaway in Paris, in may 2014, when he popped the question.

They reportedly said ‘I do’ at an intimate ceremony held at Lisnavagh House in Carlow, a town in the south east of Ireland.

Speaking to RSVP Magazine, Donal said he was super nervous before their big day.

The rest of the day was an absolute dream and soon as Sofie came into the room.

He told the publication: “In the whole lead up the wedding that was the most nervous I was because so much organisation goes into making the day happen that all of a sudden, silence falls and you are left standing there.

“That was the moment that hit me and I thought ‘Oh my God, we are getting married.’ For me, that was a slightly nervous moment.”

However, the rest of their wedding day was “perfect”, he said.

Donal continued: “The rest of the day was an absolute dream and soon as Sofie came into the room, it was perfect.”
