Though there was a big age difference, the two said they didn’t notice, as their chemistry was undeniable. As Aaron previously told The Telegraph, “I knew instantly that I wanted to spend the rest of my life with this person.”
After wrapping up production on Nowhere Boy, the pair started dating and quickly became pregnant with their first child together. They subsequently became engaged, which they announced at the film’s premiere in the fall of 2009.
“I knew I wanted a family with her, I knew I wanted kids, and a month later she was pregnant with our first child,” Aaron told The Telegraph of their whirlwind romance.
The following year they welcomed daughter Wylda Rae, while their youngest, Romy Hero, was born in January 2012.
Their two kids, as well as Sam’s children from her previous marriage, were in attendance at their July 2012 nuptials. At the time, the couple revealed they were combining their last names.
