Pierce and Keely are parents to two sons together

The Irish actor is a father-of-five: he welcomed son Sean with his first wife, Cassandra Harris, and adopted her two children, Charlotte and Chris.

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

In September 2015, Pierce bravely opened up about 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."
