Sox owner Henry is engaged
Red Sox owner John Henry is engaged to girlfriend Linda Pizzuti.
Henry, whose divorce from his second wife, Peggy, was finalized last year, proposed to Pizzuti in New York, and the pair is planning to get married in June.
We are happily engaged, the raven-haired bride-to-be confirmed in a text message to us today.
It will be the first marriage for Pizzuti, who has been dating the millionaire businessman since she was introduced to him last summer at Alibi, the bar at the Liberty Hotel. Henry, the 59-year-old founder of the Boca Raton-based investment firm John W. Henry & Co., has one daughter from his 14-year marriage to Peggy. He was also married once before.
Pizzuti, 30, is from Lynnfield, and she and her family are in the real estate development business. Shes been a near-constant companion of the Sox owner in recent months, traveling with him to Europe and hosting parties on his 164-foot yacht.
Presumably the couple will eventually move to the Brookline estate that Henry purchased two years ago for $16 million -- that is, when hes done working on it. The red brick Georgian Revival mansion had seven bedrooms and 11 bathrooms, but Henry was apparently unsatisfied and won approval last May to tear it down and rebuild.
