She continued, in part: "There is simply no excuse for my past horrible tweets. My targets didn't deserve them. No one does. Many of them needed empathy, kindness, understanding and support, not my meanness masquerading as a kind of casual, edgy humor. I was a troll, full stop. And I am so sorry."

In April 2016, they welcomed daughter Luna, now five, followed by son Miles in May 2018. In August 2020 they announced that they were expecting a third child, a baby boy, but the following month Chrissy tragically lost the unborn baby.

In a 2019 interview with Vanity Fair, John described himself as Chrissy's "biggest cheerleader". Of their relationship, he added: "It got serious pretty quickly.
