Joe and his wife now hold the record for the highest win in the EuroMillions Lottery. Such winners chose to remain anonymous but they went public.
Joe told the BBC:
"I couldn't go back to sleep, I didn't want to wake Jess up so I just laid there for what seemed like forever. I spent some time searching for property with no budget limit, which was a novelty."
His wife said her initial reaction was to disbelieve the great news. They revealed how they will use the money:
"Our two children have always talked about going to Hawaii, I've no idea why but we can now make that dream come true. Just to see their faces when we can make these things come true will be worth every penny."
