Olivia Newton-John may have had a memorable career, but she has arguably been less fortunate when it comes to her personal life. Although the actress and singer appears to have found love on more than one occasion, few relationships seem to have worked out for her. However, when Newton-John tied the knot for the second time at 59 years old, she showed that age doesn’t have to get in the way of finding The One.

Newton-John entered life in England in the city of Cambridge in September 1948. When she was five years old, however, her father landed a dean position at a university in Australia. And so, the family packed up and moved to Melbourne – although Newton-John would relocate back to the United Kingdom when she was a teenager.

From an early age, Newton-John excelled at performing, winning a singing contest during her teenage years. And so, she decided to take that evident talent and turn it into a career. In her 20s, in fact, the rising star began building a name for herself in the music industry and receiving recognition for her work. The singer started to rack up hit tracks in the United States and even scooped up Record of the Year at the 1974 Grammy Awards.
