Lottery winners plea for a wife for their son

UK National LotteryUK National Lottery: Lottery winners plea for a wife for their son

After winning a £2.3 million (US$4.3 million) UK Lotto jackpot, Bob and Pat Green are hoping money CAN buy love — for son Stewart.

The couple made a plea to find a wife for the 33-year-old, who still lives at home.

Bob, 64, joked, "We've lived in the same house 20 years and Stewart still lives with us.

"He is not engaged or married, so if there is anybody who can help him out, he's looking for a rich lady with sporting interests."

Motorbike-mad Bob, who owns and runs a garage with Pat, 65, said they would keep on working.  "I love my job.  I will carry on running my business for as long as I enjoy it.

"Since Monday I feel like we are walking on air."

Pat admitted the win came as a shock.  "I kept rechecking the numbers.  I just didn't think it was real.  I was with Stewart and I asked him what I should do.  I was shaking.  I didn't know how to claim it.

"Bob carried on working and when he came home we celebrated with a salad and Bacardi and coke.  The numbers were random ones I've had a while.

Bob's been pestering me to change them because the most we've ever won before is £100.  I'm so glad I ignored him."

Bob and Pat, who have been married 45 years and have daughters Suzanne, 44, and Tara, 39, as well as Stewart, are in no rush to splash the cash.  Bob said, "I don't know what we'll spend it on yet, but we've booked a holiday to the Isle of Man TT races next year."

He is, however, planning to do a few home improvements — and add a fourth motorbike to his collection.  The jackpot was split between Pat and Bob and another winner.

The Green's winning numbers were 2, 22, 26, 28, 30, 39, with bonus ball number 12.

Thanks to myturn for the tip.

So basically, they are trying to buy their son a wife? Good luck with that.

      Sounds like they just want to get rid of him so he can mooch off of her instead of them.  One of the qualifications for the wife was that she be rich.  LOL

          Ah, folks, don't be so serious.  Let the winners joke about it.  If they have a 33 year old son living at home, there is probably a bit of tension on the subject.   Just let them joke to relieve the tension.  They have to say something at a press conference.  At least that is something unique to say.  It is all relatively meaningless.  A lot of what people say at a press conference is probably just "something to say."

            I agree with Uff Dah but.... does anyone have their telephone number?  LOL  

            Seriously, didn't they say he's looking for a rich woman?  So I guess they're not willing to foot the bill when they kick him out.  LOL

              Money won't buy a good wife, only trouble and some lawsuits later. They could end up more broke and worse off than before. What a stupid thing to advertise, as they are going to get A LOT of people going after them.

                Clearly these people are idiots on top of having poor parenting skills.

                  Now that they have gone public about their win, potential brides will come out of the woodwork. However, when the money runs out, they will disappear again.

                    Yes, they did say that... but it seems that most people see "lottery winner wants to BUY wife for son".   LOL

                    I agree with Uff Dah too.  It was a joke people.  Laugh about it.  LOL

                          Power Rangers? Even when Power Rangers started he was way out of the age demographics.

                          Just because this guy lives with his parents doesn't automatically mean he's a deadbeat/moocher. For all we know he could work eighty hours a week, pay rent and a host of other things.

                          You can't predict random.
