Pierce and Keely, 58, have been married more than 20 years but are still completely head over heels. The couple first met in 1994 and went on to marry at Ballintubber Abbey in his native Ireland in 2001. Together they share two sons; Dylan, 25, and Paris, 20.

The sweet couple have been married since 2001

It is the film star's second marriage. In 1980, Pierce tied the knot with Cassandra Harris and together they welcomed a son, Sean, who has followed in his father's footsteps and entered the world of acting. Pierce also adopted Cassandra's children, Charlotte and Chris, following the death of their father, Dermot Harris in 1986.

Heartbreakingly, Pierce lost both Cassandra and Charlotte to ovarian cancer. Cassandra passed away in 1991 at the age of 43, having been married to Pierce for 11 years. Charlotte lost her life to the same disease in 2013.

In September 2015, Pierce bravely spoke of his heartbreak as he took centre stage at the Stand Up To Cancer telecast.

"To watch someone you love have his or her life eaten away bit by bit by this insidious disease, that part of your sorrow becomes an indelible part of your psyche," he said. "I held the generous, strong beautiful hand of my first wife Cassie as ovarian cancer took her life too soon.

"Just last year, I held the hand of my funny, wonderful daughter Charlotte, before she too died from this wretched inherited disease."
