Richard James Sutton is a builder and carpenter who got into the spotlight thanks to being the husband of Katie Piper, a famed victim of an awful acid attack. He is believed to own several construction businesses.
Sutton got romantically involved with Katie in 2013 after they were introduced to each other by a mutual friend. In 2014, he surprised his girlfriend by popping the question a couple of weeks before Christmas. And in November 2015, they got hitched. The spouses were blessed with daughter Belle in 2014. In 2017, their younger daughter Penelope became the newest addition to the family.
In one of her interviews, Piper shared that Richard never stared at her burns but always looked in her eyes. He made her feel relaxed and confident. As a result, her heart melted and she fell in love.
Though Sutton isn’t active on social media, his photos regularly appear on his wife’s Instagram.
A curious fact: Richard has a bachelor’s degree in engineering.
