Marco Borsato says in

De Telegraaf

that he and his ex-wife had very little time before they started a family.

The singer proposed to her after three months.

When asked whether it all went too quickly, Borsato replies in the interview: "In retrospect I say: 'We spent very little time alone with the two of us.' Getting engaged, getting married, the arrival of Luca. I underestimated what it was. with a woman it does to have three children in a fairly short time, we are talking about a good four years. "

Borsato and Leontine got married in 1998, at the same time as his album

De Waarheid

was released.

Borsato calls the period 'the most hectic time of all'.

After the couple had been able to get to know each other for several months, the marriage was already consummated and Leontine was pregnant.

"I was head over heels in love and I have remained that for 24 years, no 25 years now," says Borsato.

In recent days, Borsato has explained the breakup with Leontine in several interviews.

The couple announced in February 2020 that they were going to divorce.
