Jennifer shares Stella with her ex-husband Clark Gregg, who she was married to between 2001 and 2020.

The pair split after 19 years of marriage, and Jennifer revealed in an emotional Instagram post in July last year that they had decided to end their marriage after initially separating back in January.

"We recently made the difficult decision to divorce, but we remain close and are deeply grateful for the life we've shared and the wonderful daughter we've raised – Jennifer & Clark. P.S totally crying as we post this."

The pair tied the knot in July 2001, a year after they began dating. Jennifer and Clark are both doting parents to Stella, and while she is quite private, the actress occasionally shares pictures of her daughter on social media.

Stella, meanwhile, has become a star in her own right after appearing in several productions over the years. In 2013 she starred alongside her dad in the comedy Trust Me, and in 2017 she appeared in the television series Marvel's Agent of SHIELD.
