‘We decided to keep it private until now. We went through a lot of challenges and difficulties this past year,’ McEnroe said, before revealing Niamh lost their first child.

‘Niamh was pregnant in the fall but lost the baby at the end of her first trimester. It was devastating but in the end, it’s made us closer and stronger. And our bond is better than it’s ever been,’ he added.

McEnroe also revealed the news on his Instagram, stating, ‘I can’t think of a better way to start 2021 than to share with all of you that Niamh and I are officially Mr. and Mrs. McEnroe.’

Niamh had moved into Sean’s Los Angeles home back in early 2019, which McEnroe revealed is when he had, ‘one of the worst breakdowns of my life.’

‘I don’t remember exactly what set me off, but it was something related to my family and traumas from my childhood. It was one of the most challenging emotional experiences I’ve ever had. I remember taking a huge crystal and throwing it as hard as I could through a painting, which also went through the wall, leaving a huge hole,’ McEnroe added.

He also revealed that he ripped a ficus plant apart from its roots, when Niamh found him, ‘laying face first’ in soil on the carpet, ‘crying and screaming.’

‘She gently and quietly started putting the plant back together. She picked up all of the broken leaves and stems and swept up all of the soil and put it all back into the pot,’ he added.

After she finished, she went over to him and rubbed his back and started ‘speaking very gently,’ which caused him to ‘let go of the clenching grip I had on one of the stems.’

He added that very same ficus plant is still in their bedroom to this day, and now it’s, ‘three times the size it was then.’

‘I was 100% certain I had destroyed the plant at the time. Even as it was happening, I hated myself for doing it and behaving in such a way. But I was consumed with such anger and self-hatred in the moment that it didn’t matter,’ he said.

McEnroe said he thought it was ‘useless’ that she was trying to save the plant, but when the plant was fully nursed to health, he said, ‘I knew then that I would never doubt her again.’  

‘Niamh gave me a foundation of faith and hope, through her resolute unwavering example, a rooted foundation that I wasn’t even close to having at the time. Everything that I am now, I owe to her. I love you, Niamh McEnroe. You are my true love, my foundation, and my fountain of inspiration all in one. I will love you my whole life, you and no other,’ he concluded.

The wedding took place just days after he reunited with his family, including mother Tatum O’Neal and grandfather Ryan O’Neal, which he said was the first time they had been together since the 30th anniversary of Paper Moon in 2003.
