Bradley and Donna tied the knot back in 1997 and so have been together for 22 years! The pair share one son, 22-year-old Barney, and Bradley has a 37-year-old daughter, Hayley, from a previously relationship. Donna regularly attends red carpet events with her husband, and recently made an appearance in one of his Instagram videos as he celebrated the New Year with his family.
