Grace married David Linch, an investment banker in Atlanta, whom she has known since the late ’70s. The couple was married in April in a small, private ceremony.
Grace never planned 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].”
Grace, who is due to give birth to twins in January, did not reveal whether she underwent fertility treatments. She did say, “Tell women out there that there is hope.” Adds Grace, “I never thought it would happen like this. I thought ‘mother’ and ‘wife’ was just not part of God’s plan for me.”
