Separated Celebrities And Their Kids
Parents’ breakups are difficult for children, who can mistakenly blame themselves for their parent’s separation. This fact only highlights the importance of guiding children through the transition, providing guidance, and emphasizing that nothing they did cause their parents to split. The process doesn’t end until the finalization of the legal separation, and the parents are happy on their own. Aside from dividing their investments, figuring out the safest and most child-centered way to co-parent with an ex is no easy feat.
Celebrity breakups are common, so hearing that another famous couple has called it quits isn’t surprising. When it comes to celebrity couples breaking up, they go big and don’t hold back on the drama. Yes, many couples (even in Hollywood!) realize that the key to co-parenting is for parents to put their child’s needs first. Here are some former celebrity couples who seem to have figured out how to prioritize co-parenting for the sake of their children, ranging from Michael Sheen and Kate Beckinsale to Adele and Simon Konecki.
Michael Sheen & Kate Beckinsale
Kate Beckinsale is a known leading lady in some of Hollywood’s most beloved films for more than two decades, and she has had a few high-profile personal relationships during that period. The Serendipity actress dated Michael Sheen early in her career. They first became related in 1995, and their daughter, Lily, was born in 1999. Despite their 2003 split, the two continue to co-parent Beckinsale’s only child amicably.
Although the two were in a relationship for almost a decade, Michael never proposed to Kate. Kate claims that she was embarrassed by her “single status” at the time. Regardless of her other marriages and flings, Beckinsale and Sheen often team up for the sake of their children. The young lady is now an adult, having inherited her mother’s signature beauty. We are glad to know that Michael and Kate were able to reach a great degree of relationship.
Michael Douglas & Diandra Luker
Michael Douglas is now arguably one of Hollywood’s most well-known actors. He grew up in the movie industry as the son of Kirk Douglas and Diana Dill and was involved in some of the most notable films of the twentieth century. Aside from his degree of fame, we might know him for his high-profile marriage to Catherine Zeta-Jones. But unknown to some, he was once married to the daughter of a diplomat, Diandra Luker.
Michael was promoting his film, and One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest when he encountered 19-year old Diandra. She had no idea who Douglas was, but they struck up a conversation that led to two days together and a two-week engagement. They eventually got married in 1977 and welcomed their son, Cameron, a year after. Despite splitting up in 1995, they were able to set aside their differences for Cameron. Cameron now has a family of his own with Brazilian model Viviane Thibes and their two kids, making Michael and Douglas proud grandparents.
Mel B & Eddie Murphy
He established his degree as one of the most defining comedians of the 1980s while being a part of a feminist group that inspired a generation. Together, they are two well-known public figures from the last four decades. After their first meeting, Mel B had his eyes set on Eddie Murphy. She was smitten with Murphy, later describing their first encounter as “very serious” and left the party because “the attraction was a little too much.”
The picture-perfect vision of Murphy and Brown started to take shape quickly. Brown found out she was pregnant shortly after, and the couple was thrilled. Mel gave birth to Angel Iris Murphy Brown in 2007, but skepticism met her arrival. Eddie is said to have had a rocky relationship with his daughter Angel at first. But as time went by, he became more interested, and the two became closer.
Mary Lee Harvey & Steve Harvey
Being a celebrity wife is difficult, but being a celebrity ex-wife is even more difficult, particularly for Mary Lee Harvey, who was married to Steve Harvey for a long time. When Mary met Steve, he was fresh off his split from his first wife, Marcia. Many people were taken aback by Steve’s decision to enter another relationship so quickly. The couple fell in love right away, and within a year, they were walking down the aisle together. They were in love for seventeen years, but in 2005, the couple split, and the story became a media sensation.
It’s challenging to get over someone with whom you spent a decade of your life, especially with a child. Their son, Wynton Harvey, was primarily cared for by Steve. He has performed as a guest host on his father’s talk show, Steve, and several of his father’s self-titled YouTube episodes. He is also carving a degree in modeling and photography in addition to these activities.
Martha & Andrew Stewart
She achieved success through several business investments. Martha has dabbled in publishing, broadcasting, merchandising, and e-commerce, among other things. She is the publicist of Martha Stewart Living magazine and the author of several best-selling books. Also, she’s been the host of two syndicated television shows, Martha and Martha Stewart Living. Talking about her personal life, Martha married Andrew Stewart in 1961. He was a Yale Law School student, and they welcomed Alexis, their only child, into the world four years later.
Alexis is best known as the daughter of an icon but has developed separate fame from her mother’s celebrity. She was one of the hosts of Whatever with Alexis and Jennifer and also co-authored a novel. While it’s evident that Martha and her daughter didn’t have the best of childhood relationships, it seems that things are much better between them now.
Marie Osmond & Brian Blosil
The Gift of Love actress fell in love with Brian Blosil three years after her separation from Steve. Marie and the Wildest Dreams actor married in 1986, and their family soon grew to include eight kids. They were together for 21 years, but the former couple “wasn’t happy,” so they split in 2007.
Despite her busy schedule, the brunette singer has her children solely. Osmond’s second biological child, Rachel, was married to Gabriel Krueger and now works as a costume designer. Her eldest daughter, Jessica, chose a new degree as a Provo City Police officer in Provo, Utah. Brandon is into music, but in a somewhat different genre than Marie was known for: playing bass in Navarre’s metalcore band. Brianna is a make-up artist and is married to David Schwep, and she has two children with him. Matthew is a talented musician and has toured around the country as a talented saxophonist with his school band. Abigail, the eighth child in Marie’s growing family, just finished her senior year of high school. Her children are undeniably making their iconic mother proud.
Mariah Carey & Nick Cannon
Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon first met in 2005, when he presented her with her Nickelodeon Award.
Despite their instant attraction, Cannon said that he and the pop singer weren’t interested in dating each other at first because they’d both been through many ups and downs in their romantic relationships. He performed in her music video, Bye Bye, and after just a few weeks of dating, the legendary singer and Wild’ n Out host shocked fans by marrying.
Moroccan and Monroe, the couple’s fraternal twins, were born in 2011, fulfilling their dream of starting a family together. It seemed that Carey and Cannon had the ideal relationship and would be together forever from the outside. Unfortunately, the couple’s relationship ended just a few years after their twins were born. Aside from being heir to their parents’ investments, the twins seem to have inherited both of their parents’ outgoing personalities.
Marco Garibaldi & Priscilla Presley
Aside from her marriage to the iconic Elvis Presley, Priscilla’s longest relationship was with Marco Garibaldi. A mutual friend introduced Marco and Priscilla in 1984. They became friends and moved in together the following year. Garibaldi and Presley were together for more than 20 years before calling it quit in 2006. They never married, but they did have a child together, Navarone Garibaldi.
Priscilla’s son is now an adult, and he looks a lot like his famous mother. Navarone is best known as the lead singer and songwriter of Them Guns, a Santa Cruz-based rock band. The film Shut Up, and Drive featured three of the band’s tracks. Navarone has also appeared in Street Survivors: The True Story of the Lynyrd Skynyrd Plane Crash and Breakfast with Einstein. Navarone was able to carve a degree of his own, and his music is well worth hearing.
Marcia Harvey & Steve Harvey
Steve Harvey is one of the most prolific stand-up comedians of all time, but his personal life has arguably been a little bumpier than his professional life. He married his first wife, Marcia Harvey, in 1981, when he was still working as an insurance salesman in Ohio. He consumed much of his time working on his path, which led to their breakup in 1994. Marcia has kept a low profile since then, but it seems that she has also gone on to become a published author.
Karli Harvey is one of Steve’s twin daughters with Marcia. She has appeared on her father’s talk show, Steve, many times and works as a fitness instructor. Together with her sister Brandi, they co-founded a female empowerment organization that teaches women how to take charge of their jobs and other aspects of their lives to improve their quality of life. Their son Broderick has started a shoe company, but he prefers to stay out of the limelight.
Maggie Johnson & Clint Eastwood
Clint Eastwood has established his degree as a well-known actor and producer. Since his debut as a cowboy in Rawhide, Eastwood has remained active in the industry while raising a large family. His romance with Margaret Neville Johnson was his first significant relationship. On a blind date in 1953, the actor met the secretary and started dating her almost immediately. Clint and Magaret were engaged by October 1953, and they married in December. Kyle and Alison are the product of their marriage.
Kyle is a jazz bassist who has released several albums in the genre. He also did well contributing to the music scores for many of his father’s films. Kyle had an interest in acting and spent two years studying film before pursuing a career in music. Alison Johnson has pursued a career as an actress and co-starred in Clint’s film The Mule. Alison also directed the movie Rails & Ties, Battle Creek, and Unleashed. Nothing makes Clint more fulfilled than his job as a father, regardless of how good he is in his career.
Lisa Bonet & Lenny Kravitz
Lenny Kravitz and Lisa Bonet were once a big Hollywood A-list couple, but we now know them as Zo Kravitz’s immortal parents. Even though their marriage ended only a few years after it started in the 1990s, the two have still been extremely close. In reality, they are often supporting their daughter at both private and public events. In addition, the rock star and Bonet’s new husband have established a close friendship.
Lisa was a child actress on The Cosby Show before meeting Lenny. They started as just friends before eloping together in 1987. Their daughter Zo was born the following year. Being a child to known parents, Zo started to carve her degree when she debuted in No Reservations. She has also starred in various notable movies and pursued music in addition to modeling and acting. Since her debut in the industry, her beauty, and acting talent have helped her retain her success.
Liam Neeson & Natasha Richardson
The relationship between Liam Neeson and Natasha Richardson was something out of a movie, and even though Richardson died in 2009, Neeson has never stopped praising her. Looking back, they met at the set of Anna Christie in 1993. Richardson was married to producer Robert Fox, but her chemistry with the Northern Irish native was undeniable to both of them. Richardson flew to Poland while Neeson was filming Schindler’s List and their whirlwind romance took off. After returning, the couple purchased a farmhouse in upstate New York, where they married in July 1994.
Neeson and Richardson have been married for 15 years, with their first son, Micheál, born in 1995, and their second son, Daniel, born just 18 months later. And the unimaginable occurred. Michael decided to move to London, where he found an internship with a Savile Row tailor. The training must have inspired him because he launched his fashion gallery, Maison Mais Non, in 2015. Meanwhile, Daniel has always been concerned about environmental issues. No wonder why he came up with his clothing line investment, Pine Outfitters.
Kristin Grannis & Jamie Foxx
Jamie Foxx started as a stand-up comic before branching out into acting. Because of his athletic experience, he played a football player in the film Any Given Sunday. More film roles followed, culminating in his degree in the biopic Ray, which marked the pinnacle of his acting career. He is a Grammy Award-winning singer in addition to being a professional performer. He has five albums to his name, two of which have been certified platinum. Despite his reputation, Jamie is notoriously private about his personal life, but reports claim he met Kristin when working in public relations.
Jamie and Kristin Grannis are parents to an 11-year-old daughter, Analise. Though her daughter, Corine, appears to be following in her father’s footsteps in the acting world, Analise shares Jamie’s love of music. Jamie regularly posts videos of himself singing and playing the piano with his daughter, and the two have even hinted at releasing music together.
Kristin Cavallari & Jay Cutler
Kristin Cavallari first gained a degree of fame as a teen on MTV’s groundbreaking reality show Laguna Beach: The True Orange County, and fans followed her to its spin-off, The Hills. Since then, the original reality star has launched the Uncommon James home goods and jewelry line and published a few novels. She is once married to NFL quarterback Jay Cutler.
Following their engagement in 2011, the couple welcomed their first child, Camden in 2012, and then celebrated their wedding in 2013. Kristin and Jay have since embraced two more children, Jaxon and Saylor. Kristin previously gushed about how motherhood is a perfect match for her. While we thought their family of five seemed normal, Kristin and Jay have announced that they would be splitting up for good. However, their family bond remains close, and they promised that their three children will always come first.
Kourtney Kardashian & Scott Disick
The reality star, Kourtney Kardashian, has split with her beau, Scott Disick, leaving her with their three children. The two first met back in 2006 in Mexico in the house of a mutual friend. Although they split after a while, they got back together after their first child, Mason. Theirs was an on-again-off-again relationship, but they had two more children just the same. Disick did propose to Kardashian at one point, but she turned him down because he relied on alcohol and other issues.
Surprisingly, it seems that their relationship as co-parents is still the same. To their credit, they are both keeping things civil at this point and giving their time to their children despite their busy schedules. They have been spotted traveling with the whole family from time to time. Right now, they are seeing other people but have maintained their parenting relationship intact.
Kirstie Alley & Parker Stevenson
Kirstie Alley and Parker Stevenson first met in a bar. Stevenson burned out at the time, but it was Alley’s joy and presence that drew him out. The pair are exact opposites of one another, so it was surprising that they hit it off right from the start. Stevenson believed that because they have different opinions, they will make things work for them. They did tie the knot in 1983 and adopted two children.
They both seem to have intelligent investment planning in place because they could grow their real estate portfolio during their marriage. However, their relationship did not last long. They divided their assets and were given equal time with their children, both big now. The couple may not see each other as friends, but they are still doting on their children. Fortunately, their children appreciate the efforts of their parents.
Kelly Clarkson & Brandon Blackstock
American Idol star and successful singer, Kelly Clarkson, has recently called it quits with her husband, Brandon Blackstock. Kelly will retain primary custody of their two children, ages 5 and 4 respectively, in Los Angeles, but her ex-husband will receive parental privileges. The singer is known for her openness about her private life, but this is the one time that she will not divulge more than she wants to. The couple has hit a rough patch during the process but remained civil to one another in front of their children.
They first met back in 2006 while Clarkson was rehearsing for the American Country Music Awards though she did not act on her feelings at the time because Blackstock was still married. They eventually got together and tied the knot in a private ceremony. Clarkson has turned to her music to cope with the current situation, and it seems that her newest album is the most personal. With her net worth, she doesn’t have to worry about mortgages or loans to raise her family.
Katie Holmes & Tom Cruise
TomKat, as everyone likes to call Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes, was one of the power couples of Hollywood. Cruise is a veteran actor with a slew of films under his belt, while Holmes was a rising star. The actress admitted that she had a crush on Cruise, so it was like a dream come true for her when they started dating. The Mission Impossible star wasn’t shy about his feelings for Holmes in his interviews at all. They exchanged vows in 2006 and have a daughter between them named Suri.
However, many were surprised when Holmes announced her split with her husband, bringing her daughter. The breakup did not sit well with Cruise and Scientology, making their departure smooth and easy for the actress. There is no news available on whether Cruise has been seeing his daughter, but Holmes can take care of themselves. To her credit, Holmes has enough earnings to keep them comfortable on their own.
Kate Moss & Jefferson Hack
International model, Kate Moss, was in a relationship with Dazed Media’s CEO, Jefferson Hack, during the early 2000s. They first met when Hack interviewed the model for his magazine, and it was then that he started wooing her. They eventually became an item which wasn’t surprising. According to Hack’s mother, her son was someone that Moss could rely on all the time. Her wild days were in her past, and she was on her way to wellness when they became an item.
Their happiness doubled when the model got pregnant. They had one daughter between them, Lila Grace, who is now grown up and looking every inch like a model herself. The couple split, however, but remained close friends who are supportive of one another. Moss and Hack had been spotted together in London recently. The supermodel will eventually launch one of her investments in the city.
Kate Hudson & Chris Robinson
Kate Hudson was born to become a star, especially when her mother is Goldie Hawn herself. Raised by Hawn and her long-time partner and fellow actor, Kurt Russell, it is not surprising that Kate foregoes getting a degree in favor of acting. Her first taste of drama was when she appeared as a guest star in Party of Five. Her experience here pushed her to get more acting roles. It was her role in Almost Famous that sealed her career in Hollywood.
Hudson dated several guys with her personal life but was only married to the Black Crowes lead, Chris Robinson. The couple met in 2000 at a party that was held in New York City. Theirs was a whirlwind romance ending in marriage just seven months since they first met. They also had a son named Ryder, who was born in 2004. The couple eventually split but co-parented their son.
Johnny Galecki & Alaina Meyer
Big Bang Theory alum, Johnny Galecki, has split with his girlfriend, Alaina Meyer, just recently. The two dated in 2018 and welcomed their first child, Avery, in 2019. Their relationship was all hush-hush before, but paparazzi can easily hound the stars and have spotted them together in the Bahamas. Though the two remained mum about it back, they eventually announced that they were an item in September 2018. They debuted as a couple at the E! People’s Choice Awards too.
There were rumors that the two were engaged when they were spotted wearing matching rings. The couple clarified that they weren’t engaged at all. The announcement of their split was a shock to many, especially when they just had their baby. To their credit, they are co-parenting their son during these times. Who knows? They might reconcile and live happily ever after.
Jennifer Lopez & Marc Anthony
When two famous singers fall in love, they make beautiful music together. Moreover, the union happened suddenly to Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony, though they split some time ago. The power couple exchanged vows in 2004 and had twins between them. The doting parents were hands-on when it comes to raising their children, even with their busy schedules. Since both their music careers are high, they did not have to stop and worry about applying for personal loans to raise their kids.
The couple eventually walked away from their marriage but remained on the best of terms. They are co-parenting their 12-year-olds, and they seem to be doing well. According to Jenny from the Block, she was in the wrong place during her marriage which may be why their relationship did not last. It’s a good thing, though, that they have maintained a good relationship over the years.
Jennifer Grey & Clark Gregg
Avenger’s star Clark Gregg, and his wife, Dirty Dancing alum, Jennifer Grey, have called it quits after 19 years of marriage. Their split was amicable, as stated in their respective social media accounts. The two said that they still consider each other as family and that they will still be close to one another, especially their daughter, 18 years old. The two worked together in the film, The Road to Christmas, which was released in 2006.
Gregg is best known for his character Agent Paulson in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, while Grey is set to reprise her role in a reboot version of Dirty Dancing. Sadly, they will be splitting, the couple’s investments in their relationship, and their daughter aged quite well. After all, they remain on good terms, and their daughter is doing well too.
Jennifer Garner & Ben Affleck
Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck were one of Hollywood’s power couples back in the days. They first met on the set of Pearl Harbor, then later worked together in Daredevil. It was on this film that sparks flew between them. However, Garner was still married to fellow actor Scott Foley while Affleck was engaged to Jennifer Lopez, but their relationship did not last long. The two eventually became an item and got married in 2005.
The power couple had three children between them, and they seemed to be the perfect family. Affleck’s career was on the rise while Garner took a step back to focus on their children. However, their marriage deteriorated over time though they weren’t open to the real cause of their split. The couple remained friends, however, and have been caring for their children using their investment money.
Jacqueline Ray & Tom Selleck
Tom Selleck rose to fame thanks to his TV show, Magnum P.I. However, while his career was going full swing, his relationship with his first wife was getting troubled. Jacqueline Ray was a model and an actress herself before becoming Selleck’s wife. Ray did take on minor roles on TV and in a film like In Like Flint, and she was spotted in two episodes of Magnum P.I., But she eventually faded into the background until she resurfaced in 2007 for a Nickelodeon Show.
Some would say that she was lucky to get married to the 80s heartthrob, Tom Selleck, but his being a workaholic affected their relationship. Things would have been different if her husband put more investments into his marriage, but it can’t be helped to choose the latter with a career going full swing. The couple went on their way after 11 years. Although they did not have any children between them, Selleck adopted Ray’s child from her previous marriage.
Jacelyn Reeves & Clint Eastwood
Pale Rider star, Clint Eastwood, is not only known for his glare and strong performance on screen, but he is also known to be involved with several women. Jacelyn Reeves was one of the women in Eastwood’s life. Though there wasn’t much news about her, it is believed that the two met at the Hog’s Breath Inn back in the 1980s. Reeves was a flight stewardess, and their affair produced two children, Scott and Kathryn. Scott followed his father’s footsteps and is now an actor himself.
The couple’s relationship did not last long as the actor has a penchant for wooing other women. Reeves kept her child Kathryn as a secret from Eastwood until the 2000s when she revealed that she was her daughter. There is no news whether the two are in touch, but it seems that Eastwood’s children by Reeves are doing well on their own. To Reeves’ credit, she had raised her children to be successful on their own.
Iggy Azalea & Playboi Carti
Rappers Iggy Azalea and Playboi Carti have an on-again-off-again relationship that it’s hard to keep up with what’s new between the two. The couple first met in 2018. Theirs was an intense relationship, and before anyone knew it, they welcomed their son Onyx into the world. The first year was just between the two and was on a more personal level. Their son’s appearance would have sealed things between them, but Carti seems to be more into his music than his son if Azalea’s tweets were anything to go by.
Things were looking great when Carti was photographed with his son in the studio. It seems that getting a talking to by Azalea made a difference in how he cares for his child. Will the two get back together? Well, Azalea was clear that they will not. All she wants for him is to act as the father. She doesn’t have to worry about raising little Onyx, too, since her investment money is working for her too.
Hilary Duff & Mike Comrie
Hilary Duff rose to fame as part of Disney, while Mike Comrie has made a name for himself as a professional hockey player. Their relationship was fast-paced since it started in 2007. They got engaged and then married in 2010. Many thought that theirs was a perfect marriage, but things got a bit rocky after their nuptials. They welcomed their son in 2012 but put a halt to their marriage in 2013. They separated for two years until a scandal broke out.
Duff wanted full custody of their son, Luca, but they were given joint custody instead. The Lizzie Mcguire star stated that they were just too young when they got married, contributing to their dissolution. To their credit, they co-parented their son and remained friends even today. They were even spotted giving each other a goodbye kiss which only shows that they remained close even after all the drama.
Heidi Klum & Seal
The marriage between Heidi Klum and Seal is one for the books. The couple met at a hotel lobby where Seal was fresh from the gym, and it was an instant crush for the model. They got to talking, which eventually led to them tying the knot and having a huge family. They are known for their investments in their relationship and their family, not to mention their amazing costumes during Halloween. But their romance fizzled out in 2012.
They remained mum on the actual score about their split. However, it may seem that being away from each other because of their work took a toll on their relationship, even though they can communicate through their phones. It might also be Seal’s temper that added to the reason for their split. Whatever the real reason is, the two are still co-parenting their children.
Gwyneth Paltrow & Chris Martin
When Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin called it quit in 2014, everyone was quite shocked, as they were considered to be among Hollywood’s most enduring couples at the time. They first met during a Coldplay concert in 2000. According to Paltrow, sparks flew upon meeting each other. After dating for a year, they tied the knot on the fifth of December 2003. Throughout their marriage, Paltrow lived in London with her husband. From there, she founded the wellness company Goop, which became Paltrow’s most considerable investment success. Their marriage lasted for nearly 11 years until March 2014, after Paltrow called it quits. Despite this unfortunate turn of events, they still managed to maintain a healthy friendship today.
The couple shared two children named Apple and Moses. Paltrow and Martin were adamant about keeping them out of the spotlight, as they don’t want unwanted attention towards their children. Apple, in particular, has been supportive of her mother’s company and has been quite present in many of her mother’s Instagram photos.
Gwen Stefani & Gavin Rossdale
Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale were together for a long time and were one of the hottest couples in Hollywood. They first met in 1995 when their bands were on tour with Goo Goo Dolls. They started dating shortly after the time had ended. After seven years of being together, they got engaged on New Year’s Day of 2002. They tied the knot on September 14 of that same year. During their marriage, they shared three sons, Kingston, Zuma, and Apollo.
Despite some roadblocks faced during their relationship, they managed to stay together until 2015. During that year, both called it quits after two decades. They agreed to split their joint fortunes and investments. They also decided on co-parenting their children. Their kids have been quite adoring to their parents, with Kingston praising his dad on Instagram. Today, Stefani shares an engagement with fellow musician Blake Shelton.
Gregg Allman & Cher
Cher is widely known for her high-profile relationship with Sonny Bono. However, another relationship she had was with Gregg Allman. Cher and Allman first met in 1975. Four days after her separation with Bono achieved finalization, Cher tied the knot with Allman on June 30, 1975. Their union raised a lot of eyebrows. Sure enough, their relationship nearly ended just nine days into their marriage. However, Cher’s pregnancy led to them eventually reconciling a month later. In 1976, Cher gave birth to their son Elijah Blue. Sadly, it just didn’t work, and they called it quit in 1977. They agreed to jointly take care of their child, striving to make investments towards his future.
While he had hurdles to overcome, Elijah has managed to become a successful musician, just like his parents. He is currently the frontman, guitarist, and lyricist of the metal band Deadsy. As for Cher and Allman, they eventually reconciled as the years had passed. When Allman passed away in 2017, Cher was saddened and paid tribute to him.
Goldie Hawn & Bill Hudson
While Goldie Hawn is famous for her long-time relationship with Kurt Russell, she was once married to musician Bill Hudson. They became romantically involved in 1975 and tied the knot a year later. Four years later, however, Hudson called it quits. In the duration of their relationship, Hawn and Hudson shared two children named Oliver and Kate. After they parted ways, their children went to Hawn and grew up alongside her and her new partner at the time, Russell.
Today, Oliver and Kate are highly successful actors in their own right. Kate became well-known for starring in Almost Famous, Music, and You, while Oliver became known for starring in Rules of Engagement. Kate also made an investment towards starting the fitness brand Fabletics, which became highly successful. As for Hawn, she is still together with Russell for nearly four decades and counting.
Gillian Anderson & Mark Griffiths
X-Files actress Gillian Anderson has had numerous relationships over the years and was paired with her co-star David Duchovny at one point. Her relationship with businessman Mark Griffiths was one of them. Shortly after calling it quits with her then-husband Julian Ozanne, Anderson met Griffiths in 2006. Soon, they became romantically involved but never tied the knot. Together, they shared two sons, Oscar and Felix. While they were initially quite happy with one another, it changed in 2012. After six years of being together, Anderson called it quits. They agreed on raising their children together by making investments towards their future.
Today, Anderson and Griffiths remain attentive to their children, which has helped in their reconciliation later on. While little information exists about the children, what is certain is that the former couple has been good parents to them. As for Anderson, she had just recently ended her four-year relationship with Peter Morgan, creator of The Crown, in 2020.
Giada De Laurentiis & Todd Thompson
Giada De Laurentiis is well-known for her show on the Food Network, Giada at Home. Outside her career, she was in a long-term relationship with fashion designer Todd Thompson. They first met during De Laurentiis’ college years at age 19. At the time, she was pursuing a degree in anthropology, which is a stark contrast to her career today. They clicked immediately and became romantically involved. The college sweethearts tied the knot in 2002 after 12 years in their relationship. While they were pretty resilient and happy for years, it came as a shock when, in December 2014, De Laurentiis announced the end of their marriage and finalized it in 2015. They shared a single child, daughter Jade Marie, born in March 2008.
Since then, they agreed to joint custody and co-parenting of their daughter, according to court records. Furthermore, the former couple has reconciled and has been on good terms. Today, De Laurentiis is romantically involved with Shane Farley since 2015.
Garth Brooks & Sandy Mahl
Before his rise to country superstar status, Garth Brooks worked as a bouncer when he met Sandy Mahl. They first met in Oklahoma at a bar where Brooks worked while Mahl served tables. The two clicked due to their passion for music. After being together for a while, they tied the knot in 1986. Mahl was highly supportive of Brooks’s career. She often made investments towards ensuring that her partner’s music career got off and even moved to Nashville when Brooks was finally making a big break. Two of Brooks’ songs, That Summer and I’ve Got a Good Thing, were given credit to Mahl. However, after 15 years of being married, they parted ways in 2001. They shared three daughters, Taylor, August, and Allie.
Since then, they have been on good terms and have jointly raised their children. Their children went on to have successful career paths. Taylor graduated in history while August became a lawyer. Meanwhile, Allie followed in her parents’ footsteps by becoming a musician.
Gabriel Aubry & Halle Berry
Halle Berry’s love life retains media observation over the years. Her relationship with model Gabriel Aubry became a sensation over its course.

relationship timeline aired on UPN.
It features their engagement and wedding even though they were madly in love with each other, enough to drive them to the idea of having a five-episode sneak peek into their relationship for the fans to enjoy.

After all, they were only dating for three months before they got engaged in July 2004. Their marriage only lasted from 2004 to 2007.
One good thing came out of their short-lived romance, their two wonderful teenage kids.

Bridget and Kevin only went out from 1995 to January 1997. The reason why it didn’t work out was because of Kevin and his busy movie schedules. They may not be together anymore, but Liam is in good hands. With his father’s net worth of $250 million and his mother’s marriage to billionaire Bill William Koch, Liam probably never had to get a student loan.
Brad Pitt & Angelina Jolie

Despite all that, Angelina and Brad fought for their love for each other after starring in the action film, Mr. And Mrs. Smith.
Before they were married, Angelina wore an engagement ring worth $1 million; given that Brad is wealthy, he probably did not have to do some financial planning before purchasing the gorgeous ring.

They officially split up in 1976.
One of the good things that came out of Barbara and Lee’s union is their daughter Jacqueline Dena Guber, whom they adopted in the same year of her birth, 1968. The 52-year-old is now a thriving and prominent personality who has business ventures of her own.

Kirk took the rejection by surprise because he was already a massive success in the entertainment industry at the time. Kirk wanted to take Anne to La Tour d’Argent, Paris’ most expensive and romantic restaurant, yet again, she turned him down.
Anne gave him a hard time, but he eventually won her over when he started talking less about himself and began listening to her. Finally, these love birds tied the knot in May 1954.
