Jones and his wife first met when they were 12.

“We had a brief date when we were 16, then she went her way and I went my way,” he told The Guardian in 2012. “I was away in Leeds, then I came back and signed with Chelsea. I had two of the football lads living with me and one of them looked out the window and said, ‘Wahey, look at this!'”

He continued, “Tanya was rollerskating outside and I went, ‘Oh my God! I can’t believe it!’ She was just getting divorced, so it was all meant to be. Do I believe in fate? It’s all very spooky. I was living in Leeds, then Sheffield, then moved back into my house after four or five years and she was living next-door-but-one. That’s got to be something.”

Jones added Tanya’s “heart collapsed when she gave birth to Kaley.”

“She had to have an emergency heart transplant,” he said. “We’d been together for two years when I went to her dad and said I wanted to marry her and he said, ‘You know what you’re taking on?’ And I said, ‘Yeah, I do know and I’m going to take care of her and look after her.'”

Rutger Hauer, ‘Blade Runner’ Co-Star, Dies at 75

Rutger Hauer, ‘Blade Runner’ Co-Star, Dies at 75 Rutger Hauer, the versatile Dutch leading man of the ’70s who went on star in the 1982 “Blade Runner” as Roy Batty, died July 19 at his home in the Netherlands after a short illness. He was 75. Hauer’s agent, Steve Kenis, confirmed the news and said that Hauer’s funeral was held Wednesday. His most cherished performance came in a film that was a resounding flop on its original release. In 1982, he portrayed the murderous yet soulful Roy Batty, leader of a gang of outlaw replicants, opposite Harrison Ford in Ridley Scott’s sci-fi noir opus “Blade Runner.

He added, “I feel she was saved to save me, and I was meant to look after her.”

Despite her health problems, that didn’t stop the duo from living their lives to the fullest.

“We’ve tried to live a normal life, and sometimes if we overdo it we think, ‘Ooh, we’ve got to steady up,'” he said. “But we don’t wrap her up in cotton wool. We haven’t got time to think about ‘what if’ and ‘what about.’ We make the most of life.”

He added, “We’ve been through a lot, so I just want her to enjoy life and for us to grow old together.”
