The ‘Yellowstone’ star spoke very highly of his wife and family during a recent interview, saying he “felt whole” now that he was settled down. “Having children will do that for you. When I met my wife we were both vagabonds, just roaming around the country,” he said. Adding, “Then we got a place in LA, and it was the first time I ever had my name on a lease. I had an address! That was big to me.”
He continued, “When we got the keys and went inside, I just cried. I felt secure, finally.”
As we reported, it’s unclear what issues were going on inside of the couple’s marriage, and it’s unclear if they are fighting over custody of their children. According to reports, the family lives in the Los Angeles area.
