The couple share two children together – 32-year-old son Travis, who plays in metal band Black Anvil, and daughter Sosie, 29, who has followed her parents into the world of acting.

Speaking previously about her longterm romance with Kevin, Kyra has said: "Honestly, we just got lucky, there's no secret, we just got so lucky when we were so young.

"I was 21 when I met him, 23 when we got married. If someone had told me when I was 21 that I was going to be married and have a kid by 23, I would have told them they were out of their minds because I was very ambitious, I was very independent,” she shared.

"And then suddenly I met this person, and it was like well this was it. And I was so young and so dumb, and I can't believe I was smart enough to do that. No one is smart when they’re 21. We're just really lucky, and it’s not hard."
