Peter and his wife Dana Perino met each other during a flight to Chicago in 1997. The pair seated next to each other, and the British businessman asked her whether she would want to put her bag in the loft area. The political commentator sized him up and noticed he was a good-looking guy with a British accent. In the midst of her observation, she also saw that Peter was reading a 1996 novel by John le Carré, The Tailor of Panama, which further impressed the former White House Press Secretary.

She also knew that Peter was 18 years older than her. The duo describes their romantic encounter as 'Love At First Sight.'
Within two years of their romantic encounter, the British businessman took Dana as his third wife in 1998.

Homeless Donation Campaign
After becoming inspired by a homeless people project to take disposable cameras in the United Kingdom, Peter McMahon decided to follow the same plan in the cities of the United States. In collaboration with a drop-in center in South Brisbane called Blind Eye, they invited homeless people on a scheme to take disposable cameras for a week to see how they feel and shoot the photos of where they sleep. The project began to commence in late July 2018.
Blind Eye also provided meals and shower facilities to the homeless. Organiser Peter also donated a place to relax for people on the street without any issues. The instructions given to the homeless were short, to shoot their daily livelihood and chores of their life. The drop-in center also ran a half-hour training session for the homeless and handed the camera to tell their experience in the streets.
The participant returned the camera after using it for seven days. Peter said that they had received some excellent photos and for the exhibition, they have set the images together. The homeless also filmed the scenes of places like the way they received instruction, through which they elaborated about the lifestyle on the street.
Peter McMahon was born on 6 June 1954 in Blackpool, United Kingdom. He was granted American citizenship at the age of 52 along with American nationality in 2006.
The businessperson 'reluctantly' believes that leaving the EU nations would be better for his native country, England. As per wiki, Peter had to pay $25 fine for walking his family dog Henry in Lincoln Park without a leash.
