Red Sox principal owner John Henry and his wife, Linda Pizutti Henry, are perhaps Boston’s most famous power couple. But their relationship remains shrouded in mystery, largely due to John Henry’s guarded public persona.

In a new Boston Magazine profile, Linda opens up about her marriage with the billionaire businessman, who’s 26 years her elder. Raised on the North Shore in close-knit Italian family, Linda, 38, says her father was originally against her relationship with the 66-year-old Henry. He was afraid of her getting overshadowed, she explains.

“My father was very proud,” she told Boston Magazine. “He didn’t want me to be in someone’s shadow. And for him, you know, I was this younger woman. So people were making assumptions about my intentions that were insulting to my father, to my family. That, you know, I would be doing something for material intentions.”

When they first met at the Liberty Hotel in 2008, Linda, who isn’t a sports fan, apparently didn’t know who Henry was. She originally rebuffed his courtship, at least partially because of her friends’ and family member’s misgivings.

Linda, who obtained her master’s in real estate from MIT in 2006, dated exhaustively throughout her 20s. Her friends say Henry’s intellect is what ultimately reeled her in, along with romantic late-night emails. Boston Magazine published one of them in a 2009 feature story about the couple.

“We feted the Celtics tonight and the skies opened. The sun emerged and created a giant rainbow between the city and the park. We were transfixed,” Henry wrote. “You only saw it if you were in the right place. I was in the right place when I noticed you.”

The profile, which focuses on Linda’s efforts to bring the Boston Globe back to profitability, paints her as an independent woman who uses her relationship with Henry as a way to pursue her various business interests. She’s taken on an increasingly prominent position at the Globe, where Henry has faded to the background.

Given Henry’s penchant for reclusiveness, it’s easy to imagine a future where Linda takes on a larger role with the Red Sox, too. As of now, her biggest contributions to the club include the creation of Tessie, sister to Wally the Green Monster, and Fenway Park’s sustainable rooftop garden.

Assuming their marriage lasts, Linda Pizutti Henry may become the most influential and powerful woman in Boston. Good thing she didn’t turn away the hermit-like older gentleman who approached her at the Liberty nine years ago. Despite her friends’ claims to the contrary, it’s almost as if she knew who he was.
