Bella Mackie Bio, Wiki
Bella Mackie is a 35 years old freelance journalist from London who She has written for The Guardian, VICE and Vogue among other publications.

Bella Mackie 1st Marriage / 1st Husband
At the age of 28, Bella disclosed she met someone after lots of failed relationships, who scooped her up.
“Within three months we were living together and celebrating our engagement,” she revealed. “I was stunned that I’d cracked it – without ever considering what “it” was. I gave little care as to whether this was the relationship I wanted, or if I was merely seeking any relationship.”
Her first marriage was failure lasting less than a year and she sought therapy afterward. She says that being single encouraged her to pursue her career, make new solid friendships and develop a new interest in running and cooking.
She wrote at the time: “The joy of choosing my own routine feels like a luxury to be savoured. I can stay up writing late into the night. I can book a holiday where I only lie by the pool. I can run all morning if I choose. And I do.”
Bella Mackie and Greg James
Bella’s husband, Greg James is an English radio DJ, television presenter, and author. He hosts The Radio 1 Breakfast Show on BBC Radio 1 and co-presents the BBC television series Sounds Like Friday Night.

I feel really content and it’s nice to have my shit together before I undertake a huge new work challenge. One of the main reasons for this happiness is because I met this person. This is Bella and in February she asked me to marry her.”
“I said yes immediately because she is the smartest, funniest and most beautiful person I’ve ever met.
“The only problem is she loves staying up into the early hours drinking as much as I do and this is not conducive with 5 am alarms. That said, it’s been quite a year.”

I know it’s probably bad Christmas form but my book is out in TWO DAYS and Santa can’t really compete with that for me. I’ve never been confident about my writing, but this book is very honest and I’m proud of that. I hope it helps some people. I hope it makes some people feel less weird, feel less alone.
