Deadpool 2 star Josh is already a dad to 24-year-old daughter Eden Brolin and 29-year-old son Trevor Brolin, whom he shares with ex-wife Alice Adair. The Hollywood star was also previously married to actress Diane Lane; the former couple split in 2013 after eight years of marriage. The No Country For Old Men actor began dating Kathryn in March 2013 after she worked for two years as Josh's assistant. They became engaged in 2015 and married in North Carolina the following year.

In 2017, Josh opened up about his marriage to Kathryn, telling UsWeekly: "Oh, everything is good. When it's good, it's good... The best thing is I don't understand when people don't want to be around their wives. That's the best thing, because I don't really care to understand that." During a recent chat with Entertainment Tonight, the father-of-two heaped praise on his wife. He explained: "You go through enough relationships where you're trying to figure it out, what does this mean, why am I so confused? And then suddenly you’re not confused. It’s something to celebrate."
