It might sound a bit filmy, but the relationship that Max Hastings has involved is not less than any movie scripts. The widely acclaimed television personality in the world of media news and broadcasting got lucky to share a relationship with the same lady after his first marriage ended upon separation.

What is more interesting is that his current wife is the same woman where they were schoolmates who knew each other for many years. What makes their relationship so interesting, let us have an insight overlook.

The Veteran Reporter

Max Hasting is a very familiar name in the world of Journalist and media broadcasting. There are many excellent positions that the correspondent has held as working with BBC, and the editor of the Regional daily newspaper, ‘Evening Standard' are the name of few.

What makes his career so astonishing is that he was one of the first reporters to enter Pork Stanley, capital of the Frank land Islands during its war and conflicts in the year 1982.

Max and Penny Hastings house robbed!

While the married details are still kept behind the curtains, Max did not involve in a particular relationships only. The pursuit of happiness started to fall in the place after his second marriage, his current wife, Penny Hastings.

The news of the couple became headlined when the buyer conned out of the cash by a fake vendor in a fraud case that involved the selling of their home entitled to be 1.3 million Pounds. The case has been registered for the legalities, but no proper update of the occurrence is publically known as in for now.

Max met Penny when he 17 years of age where he worked as a researcher for the BBC during his year gap before Oxford while Penny used to work in the Library.

But Max went to marry a lady named Patricia Edmonson (his first wife, divorced in the year 1994) and Penny got hitched with a guy, Michael Grade.

Since they say a perfect match are those where a pair is made in heaven, the failed previous marriage of both the couple turned out to be fairytale love stories of their present togetherness.

Son Died Back In 2000, Was It A Suicide?

The most painful thing for any parents is losing their child. There were altogether three children of the correspondent from the relationship that his shared with his first wife, Patricia Edmonson.

His elder son, Charles died from a suicide attempt jumping off from a building in China where he had traveled the place for teaching purpose. But no reports have ever confronted the actual reasons for his self-destruction.

But there are two grown-up children: a daughter, Charlotte who works for the London public relations company and a son named, Harry who runs his own company called, ‘PlanSouthAmerica.’

There are no any other kids from the relationship with his present wife, Penny.

Family Life

Parents are the only inspiration for Chris in choosing a career in the field of Journalism. Max’s father, Late Macdonald Hastings was a Journalist and war correspondent while his mother, Anne Scott previously worked as an editor in the top-selling magazine, Harper’s Bazaar.

So the family who is in the media and Journalism world, choosing an entirely different occupation must not be a single thought process for him.

Max also has a sister named Clare who was so much support for her sibling as the separation of their parents left Max to be devastated.
