Claire and Hugh have had a pretty private relationship since the beginning of their romance, having met while filming the movie Evening in Newport, Rhode Island back in 2006. 

Meryl Streep's daughter, fellow actress Mamie Gummer, who was also part of the film drama's cast, previously told People that their courtship had always been "low-key," telling them: "I was there when it was happening and it's something that I will never forget," adding: "I'm incredibly happy for them. They are perfect for each other."
