Both Amy and her husband were previously married to other people before they met and they have five children from those relationships but no offspring together.

Their blended family was what inspired their children's book, Better Together, which will be released in October. 

Elisabeth is Andrew's older sister 

The couple previously opened up about their new venture in a joint interview on Ashley Bellman's The Middle.

When Amy and Andrew first got together, their children were between the ages of three and 13, and they wanted to ensure that the change in their lives was positive.

They found a way to help their kids bond through making up stories about animals in their garden – which is where the idea of their book came from.

Both Elisabeth and Andrew have celebrated acting careers

Amy explained: "We have been talking about this book really ever since our family blended 12 years ago now.

"They were ages three to 13 and it's hard to explain to young kids 'hey meet your new brother, meet your new sister,' and now get along and love each other.

"There's so much that's happening post-divorce and it's scary and overwhelming, so we came up with stories of animals in our backyard in the house we moved in together.

"We were like they are all playing together and are becoming a family together."

She added: "We have been talking about it for a while and finally we decided to do it!"
