Headline News anchor Nancy Grace was secretly married – and she's pregnant with twins, according to a report in the New York Post
Grace, 47, tells the Post
that she wed David Linch, an investment banker in Atlanta, whom she met at Mercer College in the late '70s. The pair married in April in a small, private ceremony attended only by their families in Macon, Ga.
According to Grace, she was never planning to marry. "We've been in touch all these years and a lot of time we were separated by geography and time," she says. "It was a spur-of-the-moment decision to get married. I told my family only two days before [the wedding]."
