The couple prefers to keep their relationship out of the spotlight, but Morgan recently gushed about his wife in an interview with W magazine.

Asked about what it is to be married to a fellow actor, he said of Rebecca: "Her brain works in ways that my brain does not work. I think we're complementary in some ways. There are creative leaps that she makes as a writer and director, and all I can do is say, 'Yeah, do that, do more of what you are'.

"But we always record each other for auditions, and I've learned to listen to anything she ever tells me, which I feel is sometimes like cheating. We're always engaged around work and art as much as possible, but we're not the same kind of thinker, which I think is fantastic."

Meanwhile, in an interview with The New Yorker back in 2017, Rebecca revealed that she didn't think she would ever marry before meeting Morgan.

"I feel really lucky that I had some sort of realisation that, actually, I needed an anchor. And I got married, and I realised this is what I have been craving," she said of her husband, who is also known for his roles on Broadwalk Empire, The Plot Against America and Homeland.
