The former professional baseball player Ron Darling is married to Joanna Last, who is a makeup artist for Fox Sports TV.

The former professional MLB pitcher is happily married to Joanna Last, who is a makeup artist for Fox Sports. Ron Darling married Joanna in 2004.

After retiring from baseball, Ron was active in television, and during his time at Fox Sports TV, he met his future wife, Joanna, who also worked there as a makeup artist.

Initially, neither Ron nor Joanna was interested in each other, but after spending some time together outside of work, they realized what they’d been missing was right in front of them the whole time.

Talking about their proposal, Darling had planned to pop Joanna the question during their trip to Europe. But ended up spontaneously proposing to her the night before they left for the trip.

Joanna’s answer was an obvious yes, and the pair were engaged for two years before they finally tied the knot in Sonoma, CA.

Ron Darling married Joanna in July 2004 at Kenwood Inn & Spa. The pair wanted to recreate the beauty of the Italian countryside and wanted to incorporate that into their wedding.

It is safe to say that Joanna and Ron had one straight out of the fairy tale wedding.

Additionally, after 12 years of their marriage, the pair welcomed their first son, Ronald Maurice Darling III, in February 2016.

The couple lives a happy life, and their married life is stronger than ever.
