Eric Clapton and Melia McEnery

Eric Clapton and Melia McEnery

Main Details






The couple met in 1999, allegedly after McEnery approached the guitar genius for an autograph. At the time he was a rock legend visiting Tinseltown to work on an album with B.B. King, and she -- less than half his age -- was a graphic artist from Ohio trying her luck in Los Angeles. Clapton, leader of rock groups Cream, The Yardbirds, and Derek and the Dominoes, was never as lucky in love as he was on the charts. He had been married to Pattie Boyd for nine years, a model he had stolen from his best friend at the time, Beatle George Harrison, and for whom he wrote the songs "Layla" and "Wonderful Tonight." He then had two children, Ruth Kelly (born 1985) and Connor (born 1986), with two different girlfriends. After a year-long courtship with McEnery, the couple broke up, and then reunited shortly before she became pregnant.

Their Nuptials: The unlikely duo surprised guests who thought they were simply attending the 2002 New Year`s Day baptism of their six-month-old love child, Julie Rose. The ceremonies took place at the 15th-century Chapel of St. Mary Magdalene in Ridley, England, where the guitarist was raised. Clapton`s son, Conor, who died after falling from a window in New York apartment 10 years prior, is buried near the chapel. After the baptism, Clapton and McEnery were called forward by the vicar and exchanged vows.
