But alas! Godfrey found love again with Kate; who nearly left him, he said.

Speaking of how the pair fell in love he said: "I stayed with her for four years before her people knew where she was.

I didn't want them to see me until we had a child because they would definitely advise her to leave me. She left me when she was six months pregnant but I think she later accepted her fate because she came back two months later.”
