During an appearance on Face to Face with Irish journalist Eamonn Mallie, Jamie admitted that he "fancied" Amelia before meeting her at a mutual friend's party. 

"I had this weird thing where I always felt that if I met her that we would just get on," he said. "It was just a strange thing. Something about her eyes. I just thought that we would work."

Jamie revealed further details about their first meeting while appearing on The Late Late Show with James Corden. "She'd been an actor so I knew who she was," he explained. "I always fancied her, and we were doing karaoke and ... a friend of ours said, 'Listen, Amelia Warner's at a house party up by Los Feliz and she's single.' I literally dropped the mic and was like, you know, ran for the hills.

When did the couple settle down?

Jamie and Amelia tied the knot in 2013 before going on to welcome three daughters: Dulcie, who was born in the same year, Elva, who arrived in 2016, and Alberta, who the couple welcomed in 2019.
