Holding hands

While they nailed their couple's poses, many of which had straight faces, Kerri and Matthew packed on the PDA, holding hands and linking arms throughout the evening.

Their latest outing was a rare treat for their fans since they have successfully managed to keep their personal life largely out of the spotlight, despite their successful careers.

The actors first met in 2002 but they reconnected after co-starring as partners in espionage on The Americans, which ran from 2013 to 2018. People confirmed their relationship in 2014 after they were spotted on a date at The Public Theater in New York City, while they revealed in 2016 they had welcomed their son, Sam. Keri also shares Willa, 11, and River, 15, with her ex-husband, Shane Deary.

Matthew made a rare confession about the secrets of their happy relationship during a 2017 interview with People. Showing off his humor, he quipped: "She has the patience of a saint, so that helps. That is basically it." He jokingly added: "And alcohol. The great leveler, the great equalizer. Everything is so much better after a good, solid half bottle of red wine!"

They have also praised each other's parenting styles, with Keri stating her partner was doing "so well" as a new dad, while Matthew described her as a "reassuring hand" to ETonline. Opening up about raising three children, he said the crucial time frame is between 4:30 p.m. and bedtime. "You evaluate the success of the entire day on those hours," he told Esquire. "And if you get all three fed, vegetables eaten, someone’s asked me a question at dinner, bath, Harry Potter’s read, they’re in bed, and all three haven’t cried, it’s an enormous success."
