The wedding bells will soon ring for former MLB star Jim Edmonds and his fiancée Kortnie O’Connor. The couple will marry in September.
In an interview with “PEOPLE” magazine, Edmonds and O’Connor revealed details about their upcoming nuptials. O’Connor revealed the theme of the wedding is “All Roads Lead to Love” and it will take place at Villa D’Este on Lake Como, Italy.
This will be Jim Edmonds’ fourth marriage. Previously, he was married to Meghan King. The duo finalized their divorce in 2021.
As for the wedding, O’Connor told “PEOPLE”:
“As I’m sure everyone knows, this isn’t Jim’s first time. So we just wanted to enjoy everyone – all of our close friends and family. An adventure for everyone, not another wedding in the church.”
Edmonds is the father of seven children from his three previous relationships.
O’Connor also said she wanted everyone to enjoy her marriage, especially Edmonds’ children.
“I planned it in Italy for that reason. Jim has never been there. I thought it might be an experience for his kids, and just to celebrate our relationship and let everyone enjoy it too. C So that was the goal, as well as Lake Como being a very beautiful destination.”
Visitors will have the opportunity to board a welcome sail around Lake Como the day before the early fall gathering. A dinner overlooking the lake will be served after the garden ceremony at Villa D’Este.
Edmonds also opened up about how he wants his kids to be “involved” in the wedding.
“We want them to enjoy our day, our special day, our relationship and the region.”
Edmonds has revealed plans to start a family with O’Connor.
“From having another one to maybe adopting one, especially with this situation coming up. It’s all open and on the table right now for us. We’re having such a great time. There’s really no looking back on anything.”
Edmonds and Kortnie got engaged in September 2021.
