Gary and Dawn first met back in 1995

In 2019, Gary opened up about his marriage to Dawn and their decision to stay out of the spotlight from the very start of their romance. "We had to keep it quiet because none of the lads were allowed to officially have girlfriends in those days," he told MailOnline. "Dawn hates attention, so it was a big deal for her to date someone like me."

Gary went on to praise his wife, revealing she never complained about his busy schedule. "I see that so much in couples today," he said. "I can't imagine living like that. Dawn's never complained. I've always been given real freedom to go off on tour or lock myself in a recording studio."
