The singer and actress have been married since 2005 and welcomed son Julian Fuego Thicke in April 2010.

Although there were rumours floating of a pending separation, Thicke recently described their relationship as “the greatest love of the century, and the most functional, dysfunctional marriage in Hollywood.”
