Snooker star Paul Hunter’s widow Lindsey on finding new love
By Peter Robertson 17/10/2008
When snooker ace Paul Hunter realised he was dying, he joked to wife Lindsey: “You can’t have a boyfriend for at least a year. Make sure you
eat loads and get fat and ugly so no one will fancy you!”
Now, two years after three-time Masters champ Paul died, from a rare cancer on October 9, 2006 – five days before his 28th birthday – Lindsey is living with a new boyfriend she hopes to spend the rest of her life with.
Lindsey, 33, has been dating Johnny McDonald, a 33-year old car dealer, since April this year. And she says: “I feel that if Paul could have picked somebody for me, he would have picked Johnny.
“From very early on, Johnny and I have talked about one day getting married and having children. And, fingers crossed, we’ll be together for ever.
“Very importantly for me, he has a wonderful relationship with Evie,” adds Lindsey, referring to her daughter by Paul who’ll turn three in December.
“Thinking, ‘If Paul could see me now... ’, would destroy me, but I know 100 per cent that Paul would be happy for me, and with everything I’ve done since the day he died. Maybe Paul is looking after us somehow.”
And she adds: “I always used to say the man for me had to tick 10 boxes and ticking nine was no good. Johnny ticks all 10.
“Yet he’s never been married before, he has no children of his own, and he looks nothing like Paul – although he’s also cheeky, confident and has had wild times in the past.”
Before he met Lindsey, Johnny was a passenger in a car which hit and killed a cyclist. In August, he was cleared of manslaughter at Leeds Crown Court.
Lindsey says: “After what happened with Paul, I can cope with most things. I only attended court on the day of the verdict and I was shaking with nerves. It was a great relief to walk away together and be able to get on with our lives.”
But Lindsey found starting a new relationship difficult at first. “For a while after Paul died, I went on weekends away with friends and got chatted up quite a bit, but I thought, ‘Do you know who I am? I’m Paul Hunter’s widow... as if I’m going to want to talk to you!’
“I even met Johnny twice several months before we got together and both times I refused to give him my number.
“But the next time he asked me I had a moment of weakness and said, ‘Actually, yes!’ but I added, ‘If I’m going to go out with somebody for a drink, it’s because there’s potential for a relationship’, which my friend Sally thought would terrify him!”
Last year Lindsey said she’d continue to wear the engagement and wedding rings Paul gave her until she married again – if that ever happened.
But she admits: “I took them off for my first date with Johnny and I’ve not put them back on. I was so nervous that I had two glasses of wine before I left the house. But we got on great straight away and we even had a kiss that night.
“We’ve not really looked back since, and we see each other every day.
“Things have moved quite fast with Johnny. In your 30s, you know what you want and you think ‘What’s the point in hanging around?’” In June, Johnny moved into Lindsey and Evie’s four-bedroom three-storey detached house in the north of Leeds. In the attic of her parents’ home in nearby Pudsey, in numerous bags and boxes, are Paul’s clothes.
“I’ve still got all of them,” says Lindsey. “Clothes were such a big thing for Paul, and he wore them so well, I couldn’t bear to think of anyone else wearing them. It doesn’t seem right for them to go anywhere, so I’ll keep hold of them.
“There’s also a trunk of photos Evie can go to whenever she wants – and she’s got a lovely one of him beside her bed. I’ve still got some on my mobile phone.
“Johnny is fine about things like that. He’s a good man who understands everything. He knew when he met me that it’s part of my past and he’s never asked me to do anything I’m not happy with.
“In fact, Johnny and I talk to Evie about Paul, and we all look at photos of Paul together. Johnny knows I didn’t get divorced, I haven’t fallen out of love with my husband or vice versa – Paul died.
“In my perfect scenario, I’d still be married to Paul and we’d have stayed together for ever.
“It’s not so hard for me to be with somebody else as it is for that person to be with me and cope with all that.”
Lindsey also used to keep Paul’s ashes at home in an oak casket, but she finally parted with them nine months ago.
“Half went to Paul’s mum and dad, and I had the other half scattered at Golden Acre Park – a place Paul liked to go as a kid, and where we went together when I was pregnant. It just felt like the right time to do that,” she explains.
“Since the day Paul died, I think and talk about him all the time. When it was Father’s Day, I went to the crematorium with Evie to put flowers on a plaque for him.
“A couple of times I’ve driven past the house where we used to live. I wonder how the current occupants have furnished it and if their parties are as wild as ours when we were known as the Posh and Becks of snooker.
“But I’m a different person now in a different stage of my life. My life with Johnny is filled with love, so I don’t have any pain where I think, ‘I so wish Paul was here.’
“He used to wind me up about age saying, ‘I’ll never turn 30!’ and as it happens, sadly he never did.”
Lindsey occasionally attends functions for The Paul Hunter Foundation – a charity helping to get underprivileged kids off the street and playing snooker.
And she remains close to Paul’s parents, Alan and Krystina, and sister Leanne, 33.
“Paul’s mum and dad have a huge wall of photos of Paul, which is lovely for Evie.
“They’ll never ever get over losing Paul. Seeing Evie regularly helps them get by, but nothing will ever replace Paul for them, while that part of my life has become happy again.”
Unfortunately, the first Paul’s parents knew of Lindsey’s new relationship was a picture in a newspaper of her kissing Johnny a fortnight after they got together.
“I would have liked to have told Alan and Krystina when I was ready, and this was hard for them to take, especially as Johnny was also photographed holding their granddaughter.
“They understood I was still young and would eventually meet somebody but there’s never a right time.
“Apparently magazines have pictured me with Johnny saying, ‘How soon is too soon?’
“I don’t think anybody has the right to say that of someone who’s lost a partner – people should just be pleased that you’re happy again.
“The majority of people are happy for us. Obviously they’d like me to have been with Paul for ever – so would I – but that hasn’t happened. We deserve to be happy and we are."
