She first met the actor in 2005 on the set of their movie Step Up, but wasn't interested in dating him at first because she felt he wasn't ready to be in a relationship. The smitten Magic Mike star refused to take no for an answer, and made his feelings towards her known after a boozy night out.

Earlier this year 2016, Channing opened up about the couple's sex life, revealing they won't make love to each other following an argument unless they have reached a resolution. He explained that sex is one of the "clearest ways" of communication between him and his wife, who he wed in 2009, and they have to resolve their issues before they can get intimate.
"That's how we know there's something we have to talk about, that we have to solve... whatever's between us energetically, before we can sort of get down," he told Cosmopolitan editor Joanna Coles during the Cannes Lions advertising festival in France in June, 2016. "For lack of a better term, we don't 'hate-f**k' each other. That's just not what we do."
