IT’S TRUE that Greg James has become a household name as a result of his success on Radio 1.

But when he isn’t busy taking over the airwaves, he can be found at home with his wife Bella Mackie.

Who is Bella Mackie?

Bella Mackie is a London-based journalist who has previously written for VICE and The Guardian.

Bella’s father is journalist Alan Rusbridger, who served as editor-in-chief of The Guardian from 1995 to 2015; she chose the name Mackie to distinguish herself from her father.

We don’t know when she started dating Greg James, but it was definitely after her Vogue article about embracing singledom in March 2017.

She reveals in the piece that she was previously married to a man she met when she was 28 and divorced within two years.

She quit Vice to work on a book about running and mental health.

When did Bella marry Greg James

Bella proposed to Greg in February 2018, breaking with tradition.

They kept their engagement a secret until June 2018, when the Radio 1 star announced their marriage.

Taking to Instagram he shared: “Oh while we’re doing announcements, here’s something else…I’m having the time of my life and enjoying my work more than ever.

“One of the main reasons for this happiness is because I met this person.

“This is Bella and in February she asked me to marry her.

“I said yes immediately because she is the smartest, funniest and most beautiful person I’ve ever met.

“The only problem is she loves staying up into the early hours drinking as much as I do and this is not conducive with 5am alarms. That said, it’s been quite a year.”

Greg announced the happy news on social media when the couple married in September 2018.

“Bella and I got married, and it was the most incredible day of my life,” he said, sharing four photos from their big day.

“I think it was up there for her too.

“She is the best thing ever and I feel like I might actually burst with happiness.”

The beautiful bride wore a floor-length yellow gown, while husband Greg chose a navy suit for his wedding day.

Do they have any children?

The couple has no children as of 2023.

In fact, Greg stated in January 2023 that he wished people would stop asking him when they were going to have children.

“So, let me say it once and for all: we don’t know,” he wrote in his iNews column. We might have children. We may not. We may not be able to do so.

“Whatever happens, it will have absolutely no bearing on your life whatsoever, so please don’t worry about it. It’s something we’ll work on.”
