The down-to-earth star was clearly delighted

She wrote: "From the day I met this man I knew he was special. Many people who didn't know us judged our relationship and some who did know us.

"We were lost souls but together we found the strength to get sober and move forward. At 40, Lincoln started to paint professionally. At 48, he's selling through Sotheby's private sale.
