Following their public statement, the couple then handed out a piece of paper which bore the same words and contained both of their signatures.

Dominic refused to answer any questions regarding his trip to Rome with Lily.

The actor tied the knot with film producer Catherine in 2010 and the pair share four children. The couple dated at university but rekindled their romance after Dominic broke up with his girlfriend Polly Astor, with whom he shares a daughter. In June 2010, the actor married Catherine in her native Ireland.
