Max Delmege, 70 and 32-year-old Samantha Green tied the knot five years after meeting at a friend’s funeral. Now they are facing the unknown as they try for a baby together.
Despite their 39-year age gap, the Sydney couple’s relationship has gone from strength to strength as they prepare to start a family.
Appearing on Channel Nine’s A Current Affair the pair open up about their marriage and their IVF battle.
Shrugging off the age gap between her and the former Manly Sea Eagles owner, Ms Green defended herself against critics, who have hit out at the pair’s big age gap.
‘Age is no barrier,’ Ms Green told the Nine Network.
‘If you happen to find someone you adore, why not? I feel so relaxed with Max … Max is a great guy, he is the best person I have ever met.’

With almost four decades apart in age, the loved-up newlywed duo have revealed they are trying to have a baby together.
‘Couldn’t think of anything better,’ Mr Delmege said.
The couple’s first attempt at IVF sadly failed, but they are determined to give it another go.
Sam has been sharing all her highs and lows on her blog.
She wrote… “excitement quickly turned to the worst phone call I could receive. I was told in a blunt way that out of 6 eggs 4 of them were strong, but none had fertilised. She said she would keep them for another 24hours to see but it’s never happened before and we would need a miracle. I cried and cried.
Max and I hugged each other like we never have before and we didn’t want to let go. We were both feeling the emotion, like our hearts had been ripped out, our dream was NOT going to become a reality and our hope was gone. We just cried together.
I layed in bed all day. So sad. No one quite understands what it feels like unless you go through the process.”
We wish them all the best and hope they get the good news they want to hear very soon.
